“FRIEND ME” FACEBOOK APPLICATION, DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR ANDROID TABLETS, AVAILABLE NOW

Locomo Labs Builds Tablet-Optimized and Feature-Rich Facebook Application, Free of Charge and Free of Advertising


Richmond, VA – June 16, 2011 - Locomo Labs, a mobile application development company focusing exclusively on the Android platform, announces the release of “Friend Me,” a Facebook application designed specifically to work with the Android tablet and Honeycomb, the newest version of the Android operating system. Friend Me is a free application with no advertising, available for download now from Android Market.


Android tablet users have long complained about the shortage of applications designed specifically for the tablets that run Google's newest Android operating system. Many apps designed for Android phones also work on tablets, but they don't always take full advantage of the tablet's larger screen and feature set.


“There was a clear need for a Facebook app that makes good use of the tablet’s size and features,” commented application developer and Locomo Labs founder, Chris Stewart. “I build apps that respond to what the market wants, but I’m also a consumer. Just like everybody else, I want apps that do what they promise, do it well, and without a lot of aggravation.”


Friend Me includes many of the Facebook features most-requested by the Android user and development community. New features will continue to roll out in the coming weeks.

Friend Me -- A tablet-optimized experience for Facebook

Cool app -- thanks for sharing!

It certainly could use some refinement, but it's far better than anything else available so far.

Any idea if this will be available for the Nook Color? Specifically through the B&N app store. My wife's Nook isn't rooted...

Facebook on my Xoom is such a let down, my co-worker picked up the PlayBook, he may not have apps but his web browser puts mine to shame.

anyone know if this would work on a tablet running CyanogenMod7 (gingerbread)...??

if it would.. anyone got the apk i could have to install with? cant find it on gingerbread market on my Viewsonic Gtab

Not good enough yet! Installed the app on my Xoom but did not like the way it handled. If it could be more like Mypad that also includes chat it would be great if not better. I also experienced that when I tried to sign off it did not let me and was still signed on. So for now I uninstalled!

i cant open this application because they said that application is misconfigured help me i have a android tablet but i cant play facebook games and chat plzzzzzzz help me
