    Can you attach photos and videos in chat mode (fb Messenger) with your app?

    Posted via CB10
    The messages are managed as the web version. In few words: you dont need an external client, you will be notified via email if someone talks to you and it works fluidly. I didn't upload a video due to privacy.
    Today i did the last performance tests. The official facebook client on an actual android phone quad core 1.5 ghz tegra 3 1gbRAM lags badly.
    This client runs on a dual core q10 with best performance.

    You will not be disappointed.

    Is there only the paid version currently? I was hoping to try it out on a trial. I am using Face 10 right now, and not totally happy with it.

    It sounds great, but there is just the email notification for new stuff?
    The thing is, I'm using a trash email for facebook and other stuff that isn't so important and I don't want all the spam on my phone.

    To bad, but I'm happy to see, that you're working on it.

    At the beginning i uploaded both paid and free app. But in spite of the fact that i clarified the limitations of the free app (it was free, no charge, no trial) i got comments like "this is crap" and the guy didn't even read the description...
    The free version has many limitations. It doesnt plays HTML5 videos within the app, it doesnt allows image uploads, it dont open links on youtube clients or the browser, it doesnt redirect from email notifications to the app, and it doesnt have any system integration.

    Since i can't add an expiration time to the full version to allow the full experience i decided to leave it at $1,99.

    Regretfully, this happens also on google playstore.

    Sorry but i took the decision that i think that could bring more benefits for me and the users.

    Hope you understand.

    Thanks! Haha yeah. Most of the people do that to avoid messages. I just turned them off. Regretfully, without the API there are 2 ways to manage notifications:
    1- Using the email adress and burning your frontal lobule to find how to manage the redirection

    2- Asking for people email and password and using their "tokens" to pull the notifications out of their feeds.

    Honestly, i don't use methods that involve using the user personal data. You are always using facebook and only facebook manages your data that's why i decided to keep it that way.

    So the short answer is - you can attach photos, but not videos. This is correct, right? Right now, the only way I am able to attach videos is by running a very old Android version of fb Messenger that is still compatible with BB10 Android runtime. I guess that is still my only option.

    Why don't you start a new email account, like a free one from Gmail, like MyFacebook@Gmail.com, attach it to your Facebook account, and add it to your phone. Then you will only get Facebook notifications and not the other junk.

    I just did purchase it. Hope that with support you can think about porting your apps to be native BB10 apps. The user experience is still better and we can have a full BB10 experience and not just an Android app running inside a BlackBerry 10 device. Also, it would be cool if you could think about a nice native Telegram BlackBerry 10 client... :-) but a native BB10 one, all we have so far are very bad...

    Thanks for your support of the BB10 platform!

    Thank you! The next release, will include visual improvements (a larger font for better readability) bug fixes to speed up the client, and i'm still working on the BlackBerry SDK and cascades, so i guess that i will made a full native app sooner or later. in the meantime, i plan to port (adapting them to fit with the font size and style of BlackBerry OS) other apps that i have on google playstore.

    I really appreciate the support. I found sad that OS10 can be abandoned. I've tested almost all google DEV devices (nexus) and also apple ones. But i find OS10 pretty unique.

    The app STILL feels and looks very much like the web version of Facebook. Still no distinct and direct link to the Hub. Opening email notification from FB still opens the browser instead of Faceplus. I still cannot share picture(s) directly from the Camera and Pictures apps to the Faceplus.

    I still can't even upload a picture from my Gallery. It says, "Video Uploading: 0%" and stuck there.

    I have done an update to version 3, and it is now shown as one of the sharing medias whenever I want to share something to the Facebook, BUT once I hit the icon, all it does is showing a blank white and stuck there.

    When I'm back from a web/browser link from a post in the Faceplus, the app only shows--drum roll--white blank and stuck there.

    Sigh...

    The app, is indeed ported. not an apk. And overall, is optimized to work with a Blackberry and not with android even being an apk. Consider the limitations working with android 4.3....

    Yes, you actually CAN post directly from some system apps, or even third party apps (for instance, youtube clients like fastube can share to faceplus.) i explained it "Blaclberry doesn't haves a facebook api anymore. Hence, all notifications (push, headless, you name it) can't work properly, because the ways to push them is using your facebook ID asociated to your account, email and password. using your data, a developer can use your RSS feed to push "notifications" but the accuracy will be horrible..

    Why i cant share pictures from the camera roll or videos? because, without an API, facebook is integrated AS MUCH AS IS POSSIBLE.. facebook, accepts URL's and plain text without any API. and that makes posible for Faceplus to share: any browser page from the share menu, news articles that uses the share button, youtube videos from the app, even some apps like evernote and others working with text and URL's will allow to share using Faceplus.

    But, as i said, My main concern here, is THE PRIVACY of the users. so i will not ask you for your login details just to push you a notification. why? because i consider it unethical.

    the app implements the full capabilities of the site including HTML5 video playing without leaving it and extras like open youtube videos on any youtube client. links to other pages on the BlackBerry browser and pretty much everything facebook offers.

    The code, is optimized thinking on the HUB (yes. optimized with that in mind) since version 2.0.0.1 and you already have version 3. why optimized? because ANY FACEBOOK LINK INCLUDED ON EMAILS OR EVEN ON SMS'S can be openned with the app. and that will lead you directly to the place the notification is talking about.

    I triyed other clients, and i decided to code this one because is FRUSTRATING to open a "notification" and end up on a group page lost in the timeline (????) and that happens, because as i said, without the api, the method of pulling the news from your notifications RSS has a lot of drawbacks one of them, is inacuracy. the mayor one is the absolute lack of privacy

    I'm working (using my own server, so yet again, the user data and privacy is protected) to implement push notifications. but i'm still figuring out how.

    The next release, will include a nice improvement on the readability, i increased the overall font size to avoid eye bleeding, and keeping things with a smooth apearence.

    No. you can't do EVERYTHING with my app. nor with a native cascades app. nor with anyone.

    And that's why i'm triying to provide the best experience. and i will keep working on it.

    Not an apk, since i used the blackberry developer tools to port it. is a bar file inside BlackBerry world. Is not native, but i worked to get the best results. i don't use any data from the users (you are interacting with facebook servers, not with me) and is optimized to work on any OS10 device.
    The browser, is not the same, since the browser lets your session (dangerously) open. this app, uses an encapsulated version of chromium compiled to replace the (terrible) webkit android browser from the android runtime and provide privacy and a nice experience, with some system integrations, and as i said, yes, notifications can be delivered via email, but if you select to open any of them with "open in" it will work pretty much as a normal notification.

    The first thing to understand, is:

    With no API to work with, it doesn't matters if i code on Java, C, or QML. the result is the same....

    Yet again, i'll kepp you posted with new updates since i'm triying to implement a way to send you push notifications without any google service.

    One last thing: I don't have the video uploading x% bug on my old q10. but i installed the emulator and it seems like the android runtimes are NOT the same.

    so far, i have 2 bugs on my list:

    1- If you get stuck on any way uploading a picture from your timeline, cancel the upload and hit preview and you will see the uploaded picture. THIS DOESN'T HAPPENS IF YOU UPLOAD PICTURES FROM YOUR PROFILE.
    2-After sharing from the browser or other apps, you can get a white ecreen, or the facebook site for desktops. just close faceplus. the link has been shared, but the app was unable to close (witch is what should happen after sharing)

    and yet again: facebook only accepts URL's or plain text to share. you can even share from the twitter native app to faceplus without a problem.

    I assume you updated to V3.xxx

    The closer you get the UI to looking like the old BBW facebook we became accustomed to, the greater chance this app has of being huge. In any case, thanks for all the detailed explanations and the great work on BB10, will be purchasing to test against Face10 which is getting better but looks so much like the Web version as do most other that I still find myself headed back to the original and still working (for now) blackberry facebook!...

    You will still feel this client as a "webclient" because is based on the webversion os facebook. In upcoming updates, i will bypass many android trash that makes the screen readability smaller. But, remember, i'm still using facebook web interface and some web based hacks to share from the browser, twitter and some apps.

    Please: keep in mind: you can post pictures FROM the app. since facebook will only take URL's and text as "sharing" some apps will share direct from the system and others wont. For intance: twitter works, because is sharing a URL, the same if you share any website from the broser. But this will not work from the camera directly since facebook use "securirty" measures to keep people away from creating a client that doesn't play with privacy...
