XDA Developers have ripped the new Facebook application that comes with Windows Mobile 6.5. All I can say is… FINALLY. The fact is there are other Facebook apps for Windows Mobile but in my opinion they all suck. Their interfaces are wonky and they just don’t seem to work right. In a surprise move, Microsoft has finally jumped in and is building a Facebook application for Windows Mobile 6.5. As said above, the crafty guys are XDA have ripped the cab and made it available. It runs just fine on Windows Mobile 6.1 and has been reported to work on WVGA, VGA and QVGA devices. It gives you the ability to view photos, track your news feed, send messages, view friends’ profiles, and even dial or SMS your friends directly from the call tab.
You need to download and install the application to you phone (and install it on the device, NOT the storage card). The first run takes a while as it downloads everything, I suggest being hooked up to ActiveSync or Wifi the first time you run it.
One issue reported is that if you “log out” it won’t save your login info. However, if you just click the X and stop it that way it will in fact save your login.
