Works well on Tiger or Leopard.
Upgrades automatically to Amigo 1.0.5 (the updated version of this app) which has a smaller logo and thus takes up less space in the menu bar.

You can upgrade again to version 1.2.0 but then it asks for $20 for a search bar and hot-key access. I'd advise to stay with version 1.0.5.
All in all a good app.

The menu bar icon is a little large and not very Mac like. Try using the Facebook logo. Also, why add the Marketplace crap? I rather doubt any users of this app actually want to see that.

- Uses the Mac OS X Installer to install, and it is not quite sure what it installs. No option I can see, how to uninstall this thing again. You probably can just drag it out of the menubar to uninstall (I think?), but I guess the installation could be a bit more transparent.

- The menu bar icon is horrible. Instead of a nice black and white symbol it's a broad dark blue rectangle with text. Ugly. - Will need to hack the package content of the app, if I choose to keep it.

- It asks you for a "one-time facebook code", whatever that is, which it generates by taking you to the developer's web site, and which I guess it uses to log you into Facebook. Is this a security issue? Am I opening my Facebook account to hacking and abuse? Paranoid buyers should beware.

- Otherwise it works reasonably well. It shows me new wall posts, probably new inbox mails as well (haven't received anything yet), and direct links to my own and my friend's websites. Does not report statuses of my friends, nor my own. Not much functionality, but what it does it does okay.

- Growl support! Yeah! Any app which supports Growl is good. - Otherwise the preferences are rather empty.

- Oh yes, and there are 3 changing ads for stuff in the middle of the menu. I'm not sure yet how I feel about this. I don't like ads on my computer, but OTOH, the developer has to live, too.

I hope there'll be more Facebook apps for Mac OS X soon. This one's a good start, but I think due to the ugly menu icon and the other concerns I would recommend to hold out until something better comes along.

i used desinstaller


to remove it. was a lot of hassle really and not very full featured, like i said fmenu is still better


Thanks! I'll check Fmenu out, I'm just a bit concerned regarding all the comments that it crashes all the time.

Mac Face has not crashed on me even once yet, but on the other hand, it does not seem to provide any way to quit it, either!! No "quit" item, nothing.

It has however left a .pkg-file in the receipts folder of the root library after installation, so I guess it should be able to be uninstalled manually with that.

Or I'll try out this Desinstaller you mentioned. Thanks again.


Desinstaller uses the receipt to remove it so it should get it all.

Fmenu does crash a lot at the moment but they are working on a new version that should be out soon according to the facebook group

I've read elsewhere that this is in fact not free and is full of ads.

if that is the case (and i cant check because i'm at work) then i think youd be better off waiting for Fmenu to get to 2.5
