This app is not free.. several times a day a pop up appears saying 7 day trial.. Its only $1.99 but false marketing is an unlawful offense and they can be sued... I suggest they truly release the app FOR FREE. Ironically it just told me i have 6 days left now. This comment is only the half of it..

Been using it for a day now, and all I can say is that I’m really liking it so far. It keeps me from constantly checking the newsfeed and notifications while it still lets me use all the facebook chat features. Exactly what I was looking for! As with pretty much any app, of course there is room for improvement – but it’s a good start! Keep it up, guys!

I love the concept, but it keeps crashing on me. I re-open it, and it wants me to log in again. Doesn't seem quite ready.

I should note that the App Store version is working fine. And I like the program quite a bit! I didn't realize there was that version available at the time I wrote the previous comment.


The latest version has been improved a lot.

Very stable indeed.


Yes, it was crashing on me too, but the latest version from the App Store is very stable.
