    There are no decent Facebook apps for Windows 10 (UWP), not even third party, and the beta app is, so far, no better than Microsoft's current awful app. But when you look at other social networks, there are a bunch of excellent options. The official Twitter app isn't bad, but there are even better third-party clients (Tweetium, Aeries, Fenice, TwitDuck, and more). Same for Reddit (Baconit, Readit).

    Is there a reason that no one has attempted a decent Facebook UWP app? Is there some legal reason? That's the one thing I can't stand about the platform (having a Windows 10 phone), having to use the Facebook web app. Any ideas?

    maybe it's too complicated to develop unlike other apps? Facebook is an extensive social site unlike instagram or twitter which have less features and sections
