    Given the fact that so many people use facebook and the app that rim has created is rubbish, I think that if a developer was out there could create a good facebook app and sell it for a sensible price, they could make it lot of money. I would buy it.. I am sure a lot of others would too...

    It has been reverse engineered in the past, I am sure some developers have the skills to do it again...

    Then it would be illegal to sell it, or even offer it.

    No need to be rude. Just because Facebook don't want you to use an api does not make it illegal to do so...

    I never said that using public APIs was illegal. I said reverse engineering an app is.

    There are a lot of problems with the idea. First and foremost, as Conite said, the public API's are very limited. Reverse engineering is messy, and you could do a LOT of work only to be blocked in the end, like what happened to the BB10 Snapchat app. Even just a BB10 facebook MESSENGER app was never made to fully work - even after much trial and effort.

    Sorry to say that facebook by BlackBerry is your best hope, as at least it is sanctioned (and possibly assisted) by facebook themselves.

    Third party is just not going to happen unless you learn to program and take a stab at it yourself (and "make a lot of money").

    I disagree. I think there are some talented blackberry app developers still out there.

    Stupid suggestion for me to learn programing and build an app, but your defeatist attitude is very compatible with Blackberry's current situation.

    Unsubtle comments like ("make a lot of money") just make you look like a ("**** head")

    People are just trying to explain to you why a 3rd party fb app is not probable.
    Good luck to you though.

    Edit: BTW, you are not the first to ask this question. Some of those talented BB10 programmers you speak of have also been asked. They don't want to touch it. Contact some of those talented BB10 programmers directly and ask them why.

    You can uninstall any app that isn't considered core. Just hold an icon until they all start to "shiver", then tap the garbage can.

    For those that can't be deleted, I put them all together in a folder marked "junk".

    Nemory? He hard works. BlackBerry on the other hand, doesn't put much effort on a FB app. It's correct the fact that there are some SPI limitations like voice calls and sticker..... BlackBerry newfeeds, friendl req, and all others cam be way better.

    Nemory is building the app and it's flawless. I'm impressed with it.
