UPDATED: I've been using folio for years. generally happy with the app, but it's getting really frustrating to use folio now. messenger was fixed, but i get a "too many redirects" page when i try to do pretty much anything now. almost useless. I understand FB likes to break wrappers, so good luck.

Can't believe I paid for this app. Terrible lag everywhere over whole app, posts and comments not appearing, can't upload photos. etc etc. The list is endless. Uninstalling due to app being too frustrating to use.also has a bug that states.. Too many redirects... which stops the app from working. Uninstalled app now. Unusable.

This used to be my go to to use Facebook. Unfortunately for the last several months every page I look up has been getting a redirect error. I uninstalled, reinstalled and such with no effect and waited for new updates but I assume Facebook is trying to take out more wrappers.

No longer shows videos, sounds OK. This is since the last 15th April update. The Old version appears to be working. Edit one year later and still the Video hasn't been fixed. Click on any video and it jumps to the end, so you have to push the play back to the start. What was fixed in the latest update?

I have been using this app for a handful of years now and used to love it as an alternative to the untrustworthy Facebook app. Over the past year I have simply become baffled about this app. How in the hell do you make and manage a great app and then not only do you ruin it, but you also progressively transform it into garbage?! I don't get it! This app used to be excellent! Now it just irritates me to no end!

Months of emails signaling bugs (THIS APP HAS TONS) and not even one mail of response or bug fixed. I did even paid Folio+ w/out ads. OH AND THE GUI IS THE SAME OF FRIENDLY FOR FACEBOOK. THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT FRIENDLY WORLS! RIPOFF
