What’s Up With Facebook Mobile iPhone App?

Good evening everyone.  🙂

A couple years ago, when iPhone OS 2.0 came out, one of the first Apps that I got was the Facebook app.  Great right?  Well, since then, it’s had a rocky life.

When the Facebook App was release, it was a great app overall.  It was lacking in many areas, but it was a great start at least.

When iPhone OS 3.0 came out last year, there were some difficulties with the app.  As soon as iPhone OS 3.0 came out, the Mobile Developer left the project and passed it on to someone else; someone else with more time to update the app and so on.  I’m thinking, “Great!  This could be good.”  And it has been for the most part.

Now this year, under a new developer, with iOS 4.o out in the wild now and a new iPhone out as well, there seems to me more problems.  I just checked the iTunes reviews and lots of people are complaining about the app crashing all the time.  Funny thing is as soon as I opened up the Facebook app, I was greeted with my home screan.  Huh, I though.

I tried the usual tricks, uninstalling and reinstalling; Failed.  Soft reset, hard reset, nothing worked.  So I submitted my own iTunes review of the app.

Seems that the problems lies with the iPhone 4 specifically.  I hope they push out a fix soon because it’s driving me nuts.

Let’s see what happens in the next few days.

Have you been having problems with the Facebook iPhone app?  Did you write your own review for it in iTunes?  Please feel free to comment. 🙂

Update on TwitterFeed (Part 2)

Well I have another update regarding TwitterFeed and Facebook.

The good news is that it will post to facebook….eventually. After running my own experiment, I discovered that it takes 2 hours from the time posted to the time it shows up on facebook.

It’s not too big of a deal. I just thought it would post at the same time as Twitter would (30 minutes after post).

Oh well, as long as it gets there right? 😉

For now, I’m enjoying a great movie. Overboard. 🙂

Update on TwitterFeed

Good morning everyone!  If you’ve been putting up with my recent blogging spree (Sorry people), you’ve probably heard reach out to the tech community and ask if anyone has had any problems with TwitterFeed in relation to Facebook.

I decided to run an experiment last night to see how long the aforementioned blog post would take to post to Facebook from the time posted to the time I saw it on my Facebook wall.  It took nearly two hours from the time I posted the blog on WordPress to seeing it on Facebook!  I have TwitterFeed setup to scan my blog’s RSS feed on the half hour.

Is this a Facebook problem or a TwitterFeed problem?  I’m going to see if this two hour gap is consistent or if it’s totally random with this blog posting.  What are your thoughts?  What do you big time bloggers use to share your posts with the world?

Blogging and TwitterFeed

I promise this will be the last blog entry for the night.

I’m running into a small problem with TwitterFeed.  I love the TwitterFeed service, but for some odd reason I run into problems with TwitterFeed sending my blogs to Facebook.  I have the same feed sent to both Twitter and Facebook.  My blog will post to Twitter just fine, but for some reason, it either takes facebook hours to post or it won’t post at all and I have to re-authenticate TwitterFeed with facebook.  Are any of you having this problem?  Please comment if you know what’s going on or if there’s something I’m missing.
