Re: Facebook 2.0 android slideload
Why is that annoying? If you want native Android apps, get an Android device lol
Don't understand why people, not you just in general, geg angry if an Android app doesn't work on their BlackBerry PlayBook? Like its the BlackBerry's fault that the BlackBerry tablet THEY bought doesn't run Android apps lol oh wait! it is the BlackBerry's fault because its a BlackBerry! If you want to run Android apps, get a friggin Android!

So again, you're ******** about an app that HASN'T been properly repackaged OR submitted to App World NOT working on the PlayBook.
Half *** is exactly right.Don't take Life so seriously, you'll never get out alive

And I'm not "********" about anything; I merely stated WHY it wouldn't work, someone else complained. You decided the thread required you to jump in and spread your BB fanboy stuff, then I merely justified the complaint of someone else (perfectly correctly).
I don't intend to post any further in this thread about this. Quite frankly I'm not all that bothered if you disagree with me. I was merely stating facts.

The OP has a valid point. The playbook's native FB app looks like something I'd expect to see from the 80's. Reverting to Facebook in the PB browser is a frustratingly slow experience. OTOH The latest Android facebook update is extremely well done and blows it away. I'd love to be able to get that on my PB too, so I don't blame him at all for wanting to be able to sideload it. Telling him to "just get a friggin android if you want android apps" from where I sit isn't bolstering your argument - it's making a good case for him to do just that because there's a heck of a lot more apps that could be said about than just Facebook. The large number of older apps we still have in app world are ugly, clunky and dated looking, pretty bareboned, and in a good number of cases, abandonware. I'm no developer but I guess there's some difference between whatever devs used to code apps a year ago compared to now. Files and Folders for example looks pretty polished and sleek now, where many of the older apps I see have this god-awful looking primitive UI with every screen having bulky oversized menus like I'd expect to see in a children's electronic toy. The current native Facebook app being a perfect example.Carrier controlled updates is the worst smartphone spec of them all

I believe part of the problem with the Facebook app is RIM did it themselves, instead of getting Facebook to do it. (I remember something along these lines, anyway). This means it's up to RIM to update it, and they haven't bothered.
