    I have a Lumia 640 and my gosh the app never works. Especially if I tap on a notification from the action center. And then it also maks a chain reaction with Twitter and Windows Central not opening. I have to restart my phone a lot.....annoying.

    Those OSMeta builds are quite frankly horrible on anything but highend hardware. On my 735 FB app takes half a minute to start. Resuming is also some 10 second. Most of the time when the app is sent to background it doesn't resume properly, it just restarts since Win10 is unable to keep it properly paused due to huge memory demands.
    This is how inefficient app development looks like.

    Seems like they stopped updating it. Really sad to see the pace of the development of this app.

    Has anybody tried the Facebook (Beta) in the Store?

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=bPUQoh7l

    After reading all the bad stuff about the "regular" app, I elected to install the Beta. It does not have the 2GB RAM requirement like the standard app.

    On my Lumia 650, it's no speed demon...takes about ten seconds to launch. But once it's running, it actually performs quite well. Hasn't crashed yet. Might be worth a shot for those of you struggling with the standard app.

    Any 950 (or other devices with >2GB RAM) users out there? Is it possible that the app is still getting updates for devices that have >2GB RAM, but for all other devices you're only being offered the final version to have been released prior to the increase in RAM requirements?

    On a somewhat related note, has anyone started having issues with the Facebook app this week? A few days ago, my app stopped registering touches. I cannot tap on any links, menus, or even scroll down to see content. Coincidentally, this is also happening in Messenger, but not on any of my other apps in the phone.

    You all are talking about the 2GB requirement. On the Store page my phone shows a red X next to the RAM requirement, yet I am on a 950XL. Anyone having this issue?

    If the ram requirements were true it wouldn't let u install it on the device I think the ram requirement listing is a store bug

    For me, I prefer SlimSocial for Facebook anyway. It's faster, smooth as silk, and let's Mr have the dark theme, which is much easier on the eyes.

    Is the app working now? Uninstalled it some weeks ago, pinned mobile website on it's place, works wonders. Before, I had only headaches trying to use it. Crashed every time, had to try 2 to 5 times for it to open, a mess. But I really miss having notifications and live tile, plus the top bar doesn't stick with the screen in the website.
    Just wish they could take some classes in memory management and garbage collection, because both Android and iOS versions also suffer from the same problem, but W10 is stricter when it comes to that, so it simply shuts the app down. A simple app draining all the device's RAM to work is unacceptable, and it's not like it's some heavy CAD simulation stuff, it's just a bunch of text, pictures and video in a long list.

    Agree that SlimSocial for Facebook is a good alternative to the buggy Facebook app.
    It's a web wrapper basically but it's done right and it's 10 times faster than the real app.

    Also, I'd like to note that Windows Phones thrived on third party alternatives like 6tag so I do not see anything wrong with this.

    It's just a web wrapper tho doesn't have features like going live and other major features. Why use a web wrapper when u can just use edge? I wanted the fb developed app for the features

    ^ Understandable but for those who just want to jump in and browse their newsfeed, SlimSocial should suffice.

    As of November 7th, the regular Facebook app for Windows 10 Mobile is completely broken.

    It doesn't register anything when you open it. Tapping anywhere on the screen is un-responsive.

    That is a known bug which hasn't been fixed yet. To fix it you need to power cycle your phone
