    Well, not looking for bugs but rather the options to :
    1. comment on photo albums, etc.
    2. share/forwarding posts to others
    3. view posts from other apps (instagram, foursquare check-ins, etc)

    I wonder if the publisher actually has any coding skill or if he just published the modified Facebook metro xap.

    I'd love to see the huge black rectangle removed from the top of the app on 720p displays.

    Interesting... I came to Windows Phone when this didn't exist anymore. I only used it once on a college mate's WP7.8 for like 5 minutes.
    Downloading. Thanks.

    I am always surprised to see apps like this in the WP store. I thought that apps are reviewed and approved by MS, but there are always sketchy looking apps showing up.

    They're approved by machine. They basically check for requirements and any red flag-type behaviors. So it's hard to catch subtleties like mimicked apps or republished xaps. That's why they have the report concerns button... and with this app... some would argue this is piracy, copyright infringement, or plagiarism. The app owner basically stole code or code package (as a xap) and published it under his/her account.

    If they reviewed them, they would have to cut their app count by 2/3rds.

    Strange, this app is much faster than the official app for me. I'm currently on Lumia Cyan with WP 8.1.1 installed.
    Same goes for me...using the latest build of wp8.1 update 1 with dev preview installed...working butter smooth....no bugs no freezes.. And UI is awsum....๐Ÿ˜

    How did you even get it?
    From a news source which covered this fact. I just shared this news.

    Pretty sure this is very against store policy...
    Maybe..... You can contact the developer who republished this app ๐Ÿ˜‰

    true to certain extent but if this app has been approved by microsoft then I think they also agree that the current WP app really sucks and supporting their previous version might help users..

    With this, the guy who undiscovered the remnants of the old Xbox Music would be in a bit of trouble... but we let that one slide.

    The top portion of the app takes up way too much of the screen. The tile bar thingy.

    Yea..ur ri8 consuming too much of the news feed page.... WP apps are the ones with big chunky buttons and a simple interface... One can simply look at any wp app and tell wether its of android or windows phone...

    Is this the same facebook app that would just randomly scroll when reading a large post so you'd never find it again?
    Or is it the app that was so annoying to use it drove me to use the mobile version in the browser?
    Oh yeah, they're both the same thing. The answer is "yes" by the way.

    Um... no? If you're talking about the app that launches the native Music+Video app, it's not even remotely the same. With that, the Music+Video app was never removed, just hidden in favor of the Xbox Music app. Someone just released an app that simply launches it (probably using an URI scheme). He didn't download any code (because it's impossible since it's native) and republished it as his own. He wrote an simple but original app that requests the OS to launch the old Music+Video native app. There are a few ways of launching apps from another apps (including URI schemes) that makes stuff like launching gps apps or launching FB messenger from FB possible.

    With this, the XAP, a package of compiled code was developed and generated by Microsoft and whoever this "dev" is published it. I doubt the dev even has access to the source code nor did he write any of it originally. Totally different scenarios.
