Some Android phones have this official Facebook app pre-installed, thus many users don’t need to install this native (default) application manually on their android devices. But let’s agree to the fact that this “Facebook for Android” app is not that great in terms of functionality and user interface.

So what’s the problem in the official Facebook app? As per it’s user reviews at Android Market, this app keeps crashing on, it has syncing problem, poor integration with Icecream Sandwich (Android 4.0), it don’t display fields and buttons properly, etc. If you’ve tried this app and are not satisfied with how it works, you should see it’s best alternatives that we are going to discuss in this article.
