    Passed this along to @jdbpocketware since they already have a good facebook app, just lacking in the design category. They said they would look into it.

    They just updated Booklet today with a new look inspired by the OP design. It is very sweet.

    Yes they tweeted me on this, its definitely better then booklets previous version, but personally I prefer the look of the OP design better.

    Are you always getting that empty gray bar at the top? Or is it a result of scrolling? It should actually look like this

    Please develop this. I would pay for this app. Its a beautiful design concept that facebook should use. I have booklet but I feel they should get rid of the book mode and use your concept.

    @Jandieg it's simply because of scrolling. It's just like the bottom part on your picture 😊. Definitely speedier as well and I'm not getting 50 alerts about the same notification, so far at least lol.

    Would've been nice for Booklet's devs to reach out and thank for inspiring that design... but back on topic.

    Sorry for the silence. I've been super busy with work and personal life. The good news is that I've looked into developing the design concept into a fully functioning app and it definitely looks doable. I haven't dug too deep into Facebook's API but the bulk of the features seem to be available publicly.

    Even more good news, from reading some documentations, Facebook does seem to have some mechanism of real-time updates that will allow to possibly set up a push-notification server to work off of. This basically means that it might be possible for third-party devs to implement some kind of real-time notification system. This is, however, probably costly and requires some dev time to make reliable so this will not be at the top of my to-do list.

    The bad news is that this will never be able to replace the official Facebook app completely. Certain things like integration into WP8.1's people hub, account authentication through app, and I'm sure some other specific app scenario will require the official app.

    I will try to put together a working alpha this week and evaluate this further. The focus will be on user experience and speed. Because of this, features will be added at a somewhat slower pace in order to keep the app quality up. This will also be written as a native app using HTTP and not just a simple web wrapper. I will also decide whether to make this open source and ask other devs to contribute.

    For now, I'm taking down the concept app solution project I've made available and I'll keep everyone updated.

    Thanks. Keep in mind that the concept app currently performs well because it's not actually doing any web calls. But if done correctly, performance should be fine still. I'll keep you in mind when I start development on this app.

    I'm not hung up on the esthetics of the app as much as the functionality. As the ones out there now...sucketh. They just keep roll loading and are just problematic. Dunno if changing the color once your inside the app or keep it your phones theme color was covered or not. I'm anti FB until this one comes out I guess, good luck, we're pullin for ya'. 928 on dev pre 8.1 by the way.

    Two ideas I had:

    Put the "News Feed" header into the status bar so you have a few more pixels for the actuall content. Problem: You lose the burger control. A solution I thought might be okay, is to put more buttons in the top navigation by adding horizontal scrolling. Unfortunatly your design is so great at having a lot of space for the content that I dont have much space to put in controls.

    This it's what it needs to look like. The names under the icons are redundant when they appear at the top. And this providers more space for content. Also think it looks better with the full screen pictures
