When it works, it's good. I prefer not using farcebook in a browser.

But, it randomly logs-out and means you need to log-in again. This sux because you can't copy/paste your details, which means you must do it manually! Very annoying..

I do hold a lot of hope for this though, and think it great for such an early version, so keep up the great work.

Interface is good also.

Can't get it to work at all.
Half a menubar shows up and that's it.
Tried refreshing... no luck. All other buttons dead.
Deleted and reinstalled - same problem.

Trashed it for good. I use Amigo.

Never have to look at farcebook through a browser again? Yes please!

This widget is quite awesome I gotta say, especially for a V1.0. The 'convenience factor' alone makes it worth it.

It took 10 seconds to figure-out and is fast. Great layout/design is also very welcomed.

Few quirks:

a) The scroll bar seems to stick the first time you load it. To fix, navigate to your 'wall'.

b) Can't seem to exit when viewing photos? To fix, refresh widget by pressing Apple+R.

Anyway, keep up the good work.

Also, for an Inbox message to update, you need to refresh the widget.
