Loads quick. And messages pop up faster than they do with the chat/message notification that comes with facebook

Great app, just needs a little more features and improvements. A little indicator of who's online and if they read the message would be awesome!

This app is HORRID. It adds no real functionality of any kind to the existing facebook app, and instead tries to compete with it.

FIrst I tried to install it on my phone, it woudl fail on install over and over again. So I tried it on my tablet, really it just the messages button feature removed from the main app. Secondly I did a bit of looking found out why many can not install it, it shows up for us that have 2.1 installed but the "android:minSdkVersion" set in the manafest file is set to 8, so why show it to 2.1 users if the min is 2.2 (not facebook issue per say, a market issue)

Quite a good app. Direct competition for all group messaging apps. WIll be great if they can integrate the video call too..

I've been waiting for something to better exploit Facebook's messaging capabilities with it's grip on all my friends. It's a perfect little messaging app that works far better than groupme or any other. Just don't use the texting feature.
