I prefer Glow for FB, it even integrates into the Notification Center! It works without any problems and it looks quite nice in the menu bar.

It was a good idea and when it worked it did just what I needed. Sometime it would not start up. I also noticed that something weird was going on on my Mac that I couldn't pin down to any other process. When opening any window or returning from screensaver there would be a long delay. This applied to any window of any app, even simple ones like address book and calculator. It would sometimes take 20+ seconds instead of the usual 1 if that. I would also see the memory and processor activity spike for that period of time. I took all the other Preference Panes and startup apps out and this was one of the only things left running. Ever since I've removed it, the problem has gone away. I don't know what it was doing for those 20+ seconds...

Fairly good application. I'm not into all the hierarchical menus as I find them a pain to navigate. I find it easier to go to the Facebook site instead of having to wade through the menus.

Personally I prefer MacFace / Amigo as it also shows the photos of your friends and gives just as much info as this app, however it's a matter of personal choice.

Crashes in Leopard for me on my 1.67GHz PowerPC Powerbook. It worked at first for a few restarts, then fails to launch in the menubar... A fix would be greatly appreciated.

I also have the problem of it randomly quitting. It seems to do that when my Wifi goes out temporarily.

Also, I wish I could have it start at login without putting it into my dock. Or am I just missing something?

The app seems to randomly quit. And I mean randomly, i'll look around and suddenly the apps gone.

Thought itd be a bit unfair to give a low rating now.

I started up for me the first time, then after restarting it wouldn't start up. I trashed the prefs, and tried again and it worked, but I had to reenter the username/password. I'm new to FB, so I don't have any freinds yet :( ... so I don't know if any of the functions are working.

poddus had trouble on 28 Feb 2007
login doesn't work correctly anymore. when logging in, it asks for the password twice, and after the second time it loads the facebook page.

logout doesn't work either. When I try to logout, it tells me I have successfully logged in. The menubar icon still turns grey, and as long as the "login" window is open, the menu looks as though I have logged out. however, when I close the window, the icon turns blue again and I'm still logged in. The Console doesn't return anything either, but after I close the window, FMenu performs a full update.

hope that helps a little.


Anyway, I like how you added the sex in Growl notifications (his profile, her profile). Nice touch.

Facebook's API had some troubles last night. It should work normally now though. Sorry for the inconvenience.
