    Hi everyone. I would like to put it out there that I would really appreciate if a smart third party app developer out there would take on the job of building a third party FaceBook app using Native BlackBerry 10 code, and Cascades, so that we can all start having that BlackBerry 10 experience on FaceBook instead of whatever Facebook decides to give us, which for the most part, us BlackBerry users hate, because it feels like an Android or iOS app, and not a BlackBerry 10 app. I want to be able to use swipes and gestures etc, in the BlackBerry way, while using FaceBook. Now if I knew anything about developing apps, I wouldn't be throwing this request out there. I'd do it myself, but I don't, so I am. Any takers?

    The Facebook app we have is already a third party app. It was made by BlackBerry themselves. But yeah, a more BlackBerry 10 based UI is badly needed.

    Yup totally agree. BlackBerry should redo the whole app to give it a BlackBerry 10 look. I feel they initially made the UI as much so as to align the app with the appearance of Facebook apps on other platforms. But as you can see now, the Facebook app for iOS 7 employs a different UI (flat UI) to the Facebook app on Android (Holo). BlackBerry should rewrite the app to have the Cascades menus and tabs and we should be able to swipe through everything like we are used to.

    Facebook is one of those app that can really utilize the side menus, slides and other BlackBerry 10 exclusive UI.

    Well if the current Facebook app was made by BlackBerry, for BlackBerry, you sure can't tell by looking at it. They definitely can do better!

    I would support a third party Facebook app for BB10 as well. As excellent as iGrann and Whine are, I'm still on Facebook more than I am Instagram or Vine.

    It's okay. Just really simple. I use the Android app called "Flipster". It works really well. Can set themes and stuff.
