Facebook Beta For Windows Phone Released, Probably The Best Facebook Experience On Any Phone So Far

Something good just arrived on Windows Phone. What? A Facebook app. A revamped, mix of Metro and Facebook’s own UI. There’s an official app already, standing at v4.2.1, but it’s best ignored to say the least.

How To Really Get Facebook Home On Your Unsupported Device [Hint: Root Required]

Facebook has today made its new launcher, Home, available on the Google Play Store. It looked pretty neat back when they’d announced it, and it looked neat enough when I played with it. However, it’s currently US-only, and only available on a bunch of devices (for reasons known only to Facebook….

HTC Myst Is The Facebook Phone – A Sense 4.5 HTC Phone With A Facebook Launcher

No April Fool’s joke, this.

I’ve long been a fan of Android Police’s APK Teardowns. I’ve learned a lot, most of it being how to interpret a wall of code. I still haven’t got around to doing it myself, but they’re back with another teardown. Only this time, it’s not a Google app – it’s the much talked about Facebook phone.

Instagram Gets Facebooked. For a Billion Dollars

Just before I could turn off my PC, this news broke. Facebook has acquired Instagram.

BIG news? Probably. Probably not. I’ve never used it, not just because it wasn’t available for non-iOS device until a couple of days back or so, but because I find these filter-photos-then-share apps pretty dumb. Dumb as in, they do not…
