    Hello all,

    My girlfriend recently won an HTC Titan at the Seattle Inner Circle event. Being familiar with the OS from using my Trophy, I set the phone up for her. While doing this, I synced Facebook and downloaded the Facebook app. The Facebook/Mango integration works great. The app? Not so much.

    Here's the issue: When she boots up the Facebook app and logs in, it says "Sorry, there was an error." I have tried rebooting the phone, uninstalling/re-installing the app multiple times, deleting her Facebook account sync and re-syncing to no avail. She's a pretty big Facebook user and while the built in Facebook/Mango integration is great, it doesn't do everything a social networking addict wants.

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this? Has anyone else encountered this? I tried a Bing/Google search and didn't find anything helpful that I haven't already tried. I'm thinking it may be possible it has something to do with her Facebook/Windows Live account settings, but that's just a wild guess. Any help would be appreciated!

    On an unrelated side note, I brought 3 friends along with me to the event - Two iphone users and an Android user. They were all very impressed and I was surprised to hear one of the iphone users say that an event worker showed him how the OS works and he was amazed (he also happened to win a Titan that night). The other iphone user was so impressed by the Titan that he's going to be picking one up on Saturday. My droid buddy is a bit more techie and said he didn't want to move away from widgets, but hey 2/3 isn't bad ;)

    I posted this issue in the other FB app thread. I didn't see this one until now, but I was searching and saw this thread. Just an FYI:

    I am not getting this error, however since the most recent update, the app is jerky and smooth scrolling has vanished when trying to read any posts. Sorry for hijacking, but i didn't feel the need to creat a whole new post for my issue.

    Cheers

    I am having the smooth scrolling issue as well. I thought it might have something to do with my new titan but it is something to do with the fb app

    Scrolling is is bad along with many other issues. I really never liked this Facebook app and hardly use it these days.

    The Facebook app is now working so that's good, but for some reason on my Trophy I can't see any of my Facebook friends online through the messenger hub. When I use my girlfriend's Titan, I don't appear online. I have checked my status and it is listed as "available" and have tried re-syncing the account. On her phone she is able to see her Facebook friends but not me. Any ideas?

    i think the scrolling is jerky because of the images that are loaded while scrolling moving the text blocks

    Although I never saw any issues, my wife, who has an iPhone 4, was also seeing the errors, so it was NOT just WP7 users.

    Honestly, the Facebook app is so awful, you're probably better off not being able to log in...
