    When I have a friend request on FB, it lights up the friend icon. But when I click on it, all I can see is "People you may know." Not who actually requested me as a friend. This is a simple fix. Fix it. Otherwise, good app.

    review Used to love and recommend it, but about to uninstall. I'm also frequently experiencing the bug where you type a long FB post and only a fragment gets submitted. Hugely frustrating. It also can't handle live streams, and responding to friend requests is harder than the native FB app. So I think it's time to say thanks for the memories, but I need a more reliable app.

    app Doesn't seem to be working properly these days. I can't see messages ("The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.") Also, trying to exit from Metal is almost impossible. Have to repeatedly hit the back button, maybe 20 or 30 times.

    download I like this app, it's a good idea, but I just got a new phone and reinstalled it and it no longer let's me use the messages drop down bar in metal Facebook and I've had to download the Messenger app, which was my primary reason for getting metal in the first place. A shame.

  8. Sharon-avatar



    metal for facebook and twitter app download I like the app but not the marketing. It asked today whether I'd go pro. There were two options to choose from: 1. OK 2. I don't like to help. That is an over the top tactic and turn off.

    The best replacement app for the Facebook app. BUT, just recently can't reply to messages in app anymore. I use this app alongside the FB app exclusively so I don't have to have Messenger installed due to FB Messenger awful permissions issues and app bloat. Please don't make me uninstall Metal. I have loved it for years! For now, it's back to PC browser only for Messenger. Edit: Ah, I just saw last update for this was 6/2018! Well looks like that's that.

    It really needs an update! Glitches often. Notifications come hours late, sometimes 12 hrs after. Is surely keeps Facebook out of my phone. No more "friend suggestions" for ppl FB should not about. No more getting in my texts either. Few glitches, but worth it.

    Waaaay too keen to refresh when you scroll up. If you're editing a post, be prepared to lose it without warning as you try to scroll to the top of the text you've entered, only to be summarily redirected to a blank page because the app thought you wanted to refresh. The editing box itself also needs to be twice the size. Apart from that it's a good app.

    !!Insecure!! I attempted to contact the developer some time ago but have heard nothing back nor seen any updated version. Password lock simply doesn't work in this 'redesign', you can hit cancel, then go straight back into the app and it won't ask for a password. I believe this is occurring in the redesign due to how they implemented a timer feature for the lock. They've had long enough to investigate, now you know how insecure it is and how to bypass the password lock.

    I was so hopeful this app would replace Facebook, messenger and Twitter apps and still function smoothly. It crashes on some posts I'm creating. I have to do them again and then it crashes again closing that page. Unacceptable! Well so far it doesn't upload photos correctly, doesn't post my posts by mistake or whatever and I can only post one photo at a time in albums. Oh that's not good because Facebook app lets you upload 30 photos at a time. I won't tolerate that feature for long. WHERE'S FACEBOOK LIVE? I haven't seen the GIF feature which I used quite often. Twitter I couldn't upload a photo. I am not sure if it uses less battery, data or storage yet but still willing to try. Will use Facebook desktop site direct link for uploading photos & posting gifs. Make some improvements and I will increase the rating. I have asked others to give your app a try. Thanks for your efforts I think it has continued potential.

    I never leave reviews for things but I will for this app. When the app is working perfect its great and one of the best Facebook app alternatives. I love it! Less invasive and takes up less memory. But....when this app acts up, its barely functional and doesn't work very smoothly at all. It wasnt't working too well for several months, and now it started working perfect again. Not sure what happened. Giving it 4 out of 5 stars for being non-functional for so long and having so many bugs at times. Otherwise it would've deserves 5 stars. Conclusion: Get it ans if its working well for you then stick with it. If not, then look for something that works better without any bugs or glitches. This is one of my favorite apps now that its working well again.

    Using this for Twitter exclusively. I honestly like it for the most part but it has a fatal flaw that just gets in the way too much: you can pull down to refresh on any screen (even pictures) and it will refresh everything, even your homepage. If you were scrolling up a thread and hit the top too fast, now you're back at the bottom. Want to go back to your main feed? You're gonna start back at the top and lose your place. It prevents zooming in and scrolling up on pictures too. Really bad design

    Can't access find friends, videos, the marketplace, etc. Messages tab freezes up too. I love the concept but it's too inaccurate

  22. Jonathon Johnson-avatar

    Jonathon Johnson


    Works....kind of. UI in dark mode is useless, at least for messenger. All my text is visable, sent text is not. Messenger notifications dont work. Messenger has no option to update like a pull down and it automatically refreshes (have to kill app and reload), so unless you have an active conversation on your screen, you won't be updated. Again notifications don't work, so whats the point of this app. The UI for your wall works nicely though. Galaxy S9+

  23. Frank L'Estrange-avatar

    Frank L'Estrange


    I have enjoyed this app for a while, I appreciate the minimalist approach + power saving....but it is in bad need of an update. It has this bug where whenever I try to post a comment, only part of the comment is sent, while the rest is cropped off. This bug is specific to this app alone as accessing facebook through the mobile browser doesn't have this issue. To developers, pls contact me, I'd love to help sort it out.

    It's ok. It does the job, but even though I didn't expect it to be exactly like the Facebook app, I would like it better if it was less glitchy (the back button takes you to the newsfeed instead of the previous page, the newsfeed can only show a couple posts then starts showing the same stuff over and over, etc).

    I uave used this for years and own the pro version but recently the messages cannot be read. Leads to a broken thumb page saying the content is missing.

  26. sugararual-avatar



    This app is awesome because it doesnt force you to get facebook messenger. But I am having an issue when I select the three dots to try to get to "Events" and when I try to select events it doesnt go there. None of the options there are responding. Not sure if this is an issue within the app or if it's just my phone being a dick.

    Metal seems like it provides a light weight battery saving solution, to the official Facebook messenger, and Facebook apps. The official Facebook messenger app KILLS the phone battery, hard and FAST!!! Still, everyone is on Facebook, and messaging. There needs to be an alternative that won't hog resources, and kill the battery, while still providing reasonable functionality. Metal is doing a pretty good job of it, so far.

    This app is absolutely terrible. So many glitches I can't even count them. Side scrolling adds never swipe properly. Feed randomly jumps back to the top. Things showing up on the wrong tab. And so many more. "But at least it's free" not that, that makes up for its, Laundry List of Short Comings. I firmly believe that the developers of this app, do not use this app, even though they're the ones that made it.

    Misses notifications sometimes. Someone liked and commented on something I commented on and I wasnt notified. Also, when using the dark theme, cant easily see options at the top like notifications and friend requests. Buttons are completely invisible in AMOLED mode or whatever its called; couldn't use it. search bar straight up doesnt work. I do like that it saves battery and uses less space. Will continue using it for that, but those issues above are frusterating.

  32. Mountain Bike Addict-avatar

    Not updated in over a year. So it's worthless since they won't update it. Doesn't save pictures, says it does but they are nowhere on my phone. Also doesn't share webpages half the time, posts just disappear. Pictures in feed are not full screen, there's white space on both sides. No ability to search your profile. Needs work, has potential but really in beta stage. Use at own risk.

  33. Robert Wayner-avatar

    Terrible stability. Search window doesn't work without showing "Page could not be loaded", feed view snaps back to the top spontaneously on a consistent basis, like/reaction windows won't work often, the keyboard does not automatically pop up when entering text sometimes, and other GUI issues. In my eyes this app needs serious improvement.

  34. A Google user-avatar

    A Google user


    This app used to be great. It's not well supported and has gotten worse over time. You need to close and reopen the app to see new messages people send you most of the time. It will duplicate messages you send, there's no effective way to view marketplace, there are no notifications, etc

    So far so good. Only had it a day or so but far quicker and easier than using Facebook through my browser. I don't want the actual Facebook app as it's so bloated. This seems to do everything well and looks good. Perhaps give people a bit longer to actually try it before you start hammering them with review requests 😆

    Great alternative to Facebook Lite app, had to use this on a friend's recommendation because it refused to work via wi-fi, and I love it! The app is very non-intrusive and perfect for people like me that use social media to stay in touch with a small groups of friends and family without needing to check their phone constantly.

    Lots of glitches It sucks that the app isn't updated anymore... That's the main reason for 2 stars. If you go to a searched page, then hit back, it takes you all the way back to your time line. It randomly refreshes your feed, if you exit out of the app (not close) then relaunch, it restarts the whole thing, who knows if you'll ever find where you were again.

    This is a good alternative to the Facebook app. That being said, there's too many little issues to recommend it. The absolute worst has to be when you're writing a post and you want to scroll up to check what you wrote. It makes the page refresh back to the newsfeed and you lose everything you've just done. It does this everywhere and it's by far the most frustrating thing. The other is when you're scrolling and tap the screen to keep scrolling, it'll act like you hit the like or share buttons

    I've used several FB alternative apps before and i gotta say... this one is the fastest of all of them. however, two things that really annoys me with this: downloading videos isn't an option and whenever i try searching for anything it gives an error mo connection. it's not my internet and to prove that I went to my browser and visit the FB website and everything worked

  41. Kevlar Canuck-avatar

    Kevlar Canuck


    It's way more buggy version 9.0, maybe partly because FB keeps changing too. But none of the photos I save actually save. It shows "saved to downloads" but is absolutely nowhere to be found. Saving on a browser still works so I don't know what you developers broke? And now the app jumps all over the place while navigating between pages and scrolling, and sometimes the reaction buttons don't pop up. The header on every screen except the home screen blocks out the icon bar on top and the menu button, so I can't share the page or anything. It's either FB and/or the developer fell off the wagon, but since it works better in the browser, it might be time to ditch this thing.

  42. Scott Weber-avatar

    Scott Weber


    I installed this mainly to let me remove Messenger, which FB thinks they should have access to every feature on my device, listen to me, and track my every move (seriously, I mention something, and ads for that appear on my feed. clearly something is listening in... And I dont have Alexa) I wish it allowed selective deletion of messages, not just delete an entire conversation. I would get the paid version if it did.

  43. Veda G-avatar

    Wow, so many flaws. Linking/tagging a name screws up the name with repeated characters. What a joke! Maybe the developer has abandoned the app for greener pastures. No updates since early 2018. Really?! This app used to be great but now it is just a remnant reminder that the developer has simply become lazy, disinterested and/or inept where this app is concerned. Real shame.

    I'm taking off a star because over the last couple of days the main news page isn't working. It says "something went wrong try refreshing your page" but refresh gives same result. I uninstalled and reinstalled which helped for a little while but it's doing it again. I've been using metalpro user for many years.

    I've been using this for a few years. It used to be a pretty decent Facebook alternative, but it's not being updated anymore and the bugs are becoming numerous. It's probably not worth it. Bummer since I bought pro. Devs like this make it hard for honest people. I will think twice before paying for pro on apps again.

  47. Bryan Williams-avatar

    This "app" is nothing more than a web browser that simply displays the Facebook and Twitter web sites, with a few customizable features such as changing the display colors and keeping bookmarks. If that's all you want (and don't want to use an actual Web browser instead), then it would be acceptable...if it wasn't for a few critical bugs that make it unusable: Facebook photo posting doesn't work, Twitter sharing doesn't work from any app, Facebook sharing doesn't work in 90% of other apps (either shows a blank screen, no "share" button", or gives a "href should represent a valid URL error"). Clearly the developers are having trouble keeping up with all the changes that Facebook and Twitter make to their various web site versions, and that's why random features will continuously break.

    I'm unable to leave comments on your Google+ link so I'll post here and change my review if possible later. When I write a response to a post, I frequently scroll back up to the beginning of my post to check it before I post it. If I use my finger to scroll, and my finger strays outside the box at all, the entire page refreshes and I lose the whole post. On a tiny phone screen, that's almost inevitable. When I used Friendly, they fixed the same problem. I like Metal better - hope you can fix it!

    Brilliant for Facebook. There are a couple of things that don't quite work: You can't seem to switch to commenting under your own name when you are the administrator of a page. The option to switch is there but it doesn't change it. The other thing is the app lock. If you click on the app, go out and go back in again, no password or fingerprint is asked for on the second attempt.

  51. theeverydaystory-avatar



    No updates in years. Can't see friend requests anymore. Slow. Have to click on comments to navigate group of pictures. Crashes on trying to download linked pictures. Never did notify of messages. Don't even try to access Facebook site settings. Doesn't update anything including chats without a manual refresh, except when you go back to feed and then totally refreshes where those other posts are removed as seen (they weren't). Anyone still using this needs to quit!!! There are better now.

  52. Jeffrey Read-avatar

    I use this app alot and have done for years but im about to look for an alternative since bugs are never fixed. Firstly when get a tag notification - clicking on it doesn't take you to the comment but to the top of post so its impossible to find your tag if it's a big public post. Secondly, vieiwing and saving images is just terrible in every way (youll see what i mean). The "most recent" news feed button isnt on front page and somwtimes broken. Never see posts from friends any more either.

    was a great app but lately it hasn't been working. it keeps telling me after a few posts that there are no more stories. and when I press on the comments to view them it send me to a page with the original Facebook app icon and says open this in the app to view it. isn't that what metal is for? so I have gone back to the crapy Facebook app.

    I really wanted this to be an alternative to the facebook app but it isn't, I have no real problem with the news feed but it won't load groups, settings ,games etc I tried for a few weeks hoping it would improve if there was an update but didn't happen.So had to uninstall as it's not usable as is .

    Solid app overall; I like the layout/ui, and customization options and settings were easy to find and use. My only complaint is that when browsing posts, if I click one or open comments, when I go back a page to the "list" it always loads back at the top. Would be 5 stars otherwise. Devs: Am I missing a setting for this somewhere?

  56. Antonio-avatar



    UPDATE: Appears, at this time, to be abandonware. Slow (taking multiple seconds BEFORE loading / refreshing / posting a status update or comment. Often times, only the first word, of a status update or comment, will post. Does nothing, to deter Fb, from listening through your phone, for ad targeting. At this point, aggravating and mostly useless.

    Getting more and more buggy. Facebook is locking down features when you don't use their app. Since this has not been updated in almost two years, it is obvious that the developers have abandoned both this and the pro version. I'm upset that I liked this, upgraded to pro, and then they abandoned the app.

    Great app that finally means I can get rid of Facebook's sh***y excuse for an app and there even more sh***y excuse for having a separate Messenger app too! The only thing it would need to be 5* would have other Social apps like VK, Reddit, WhatsApp, Instagram etc - or at least they are the ones I would use the app for. Thank you for a wonderful program that saves me time and space on my S6 with limited storage^^

    I like this app. I see that you've asked reviewers to report problems instead of giving a poor review. But the only way you provide for reporting the error is by joining your Google group, which I'm not willing to do. I am having a problem but I guess I'll have to live with it.

    I really tried to give this app a chance over the Friendly Facebook app because of all the options. Well, I've had my last straw with Metal. If I'm typing a long message to a person and that same person messages me in the middle of me typing my message gets deleted and I have to start over 🤬. Uninstalled for good, just going to donate $2 to get ad free experience on Friendly Facebook app...

    Clean beautiful layout everything going well. Few things noticed: Facebook search shows no page found layout at first until u do a search then it shows result. Facebook should have inside video play inside the post like twitter opening the full post should be in same page and doesnt take me to another one with poor adjustments. When u want to view more options for a post there is no copy link option which is needed. video download would be nice i dont know if its available in premium.

    This has happened a few times, I've accidentally swiped down while composing a post and it refreshes the page completely deleting the post. No app has made me want to throw my phone across the room more than that. Totally deleting this app and actually going back to the regular Facebook one.

    Marketplace is hidden in the app which sucks and doesn't work well in that when you back up from the Marketplace page it goes away so when you go back to Marketplace you got to start all over again. another issue is using the instant messaging is slow and reports message received even if I send a message.

    Really nice app. The only issue I have is that if I haven't been in the app for a couple of days then I stop receiving notifications. I've checked the app is protected from battery saver. Samsung A5 on android 8.

    Good app, been using it for a long time. Waiting for more Twitter support. Specifically night mode. And also when zooming in on Twitter images, you can't pan the image down because it reloads the page. Hope this will be fixed soon.

    the app is a little buggy needs help in the messenger part with themes text is in white and the background where you read the message is white too lil hard to read. maybe it will be fixed in the paid verison. i'm going to purchase I like it. good job dev.just keep up the maintence and it will be a 5 star app

    For what it does, it's pretty great. Multi-tabbed Facebook without having it monitor your text messages and conversations for marketing. The issue I had was with tagging. Tagging in comments and posts was consistently disfunctional, which is a core Facebook feature.

    So far runs fine. I haven't measured battery saving. It would be nice to be able to use in power save mode. Interface tweaks for the future should be better integration into Marketplace and chat. Other than those, it offers a clean and natural UEX.

    I get no notifications. Notifications don't come through until I randomly decide to go to the app. By then, it's too late. Notifications are supposed to let you know if you need to go to the app for something. I've had Metal for over a year and it has ALWAYS been a problem. Please fix! Thanks.

    Almost, just almost. there are a lot of weird problems with this one... Pros:- - Dark Facebook - Twitter&Fb in one (altho I don't use it for Twitter) - default to most recent - light n fast Cons:- - notifications only pop up when I open the app for some reason (defeats the purpose innit?) - opening twitter links doesn't open in my external twitter even tho I'm not using Metal for Twitter

    It's pretty good. I don't like that I can't edit comments. I've had a hard time replying to specific comments under a thread too. I think it's funny that the photo uploader is the old school one from the first days of Facebook. Overall, it's a good app. It's easy to forget it's not the native app.

    i like how it uses much less memory than FB. Only weird thing is that search function ALWAYS says "Sorry, this page can't be found" even before i enter s name. But then it finds what I'm looking for just fine.

    Guys please add a failsafe from navigating away from a post you are writing. I spent a half hour making a log on my journey in south America and lost it all because I accidentally navigated away from the page while writing my post. This isn't the first time this has happened either, I need to write things down in another program and then copy paste it over.

    I have found I cannot share memories when they come up. Also after I read an article and go back to Facebook it brings me back to the beginning of the news feed, every time, which is annoying as I have to scroll back to where I was. Hopefully this will be rectified.

    when I first paid for this app, it was GREAT. Over time, however, it has become less and less useful. It won't load either my Events page or my On This Day page on Facebook. it ignores pinned groups. I loved Metal and advocated for it... but everyday I wonder more why I still have it installed.

    Can't upload photos on my moto g. And also when I get a notification that someone has added to their story clicking on that notification causes a crash. This program hadn't been updated in months...?. One has to wonder........

    LOVE this app !!... one and ONLY reason it doesn't get 5 stars is cause it's really LONG overdue for an update and starting to get quirky/buggy on facebook ..... thanks for the great features, but WHEN is the updated version coming ???

    I was tentative about trusting an app that's not from the developers of Facebook or Twitter to manage both, but this app is fantastic! I haven't had any issues with my day to day usage so far (although I've only been using the app for a few days).

    says no ads and yet sponsored ads are there, I wish to see that being removed, I'm so not interested in any ads from fb,.. I like the design but it lacks a lot of features that are available on fb, it's very basic. apart from custom look it's poor

    Stop changing the interface, you are only making it more complicated. you have to click more to see the same info you would have saw before the update. people choose this app for its simplicity and no unnecessary permissions, so don't go turning it into Facebook or we will run. Can ya dig it!

    Can't find a way to go back to where I was up to in the feed after reading a post, if always goes back to the beginning and refreshes. Asked the developer for advice - nothing. Won't be buying the pro version if this is the level of support you get.

  84. Richard Manson-avatar

    Richard Manson


    Even though I like what they're trying to do, Many simple things don't work. The back button doesn't work and Facebook and editing a post often deletes it then very often post look like they are posted but don't get posted, just to name a few.

    App is buggy sometimes. I get the "Welcome To Facebook" page & just cannot get my news feed to appear. An otherwise good fb wrapper when it's not acting up. Switching to Friendly until this gets updated & fixed.

    Works kinda slow at least it's not spying on you like Facebook... Now it won't load... I don't want to join a group to inform you of these issues... This is why I don't buy the pro version... It's slow and then it won't load for days... Likes don't take and it's kinda frustrating...

    It does seem to save battery, but the more you deal with the bugs, the more you start thinking of reloading the actual FB app. It needs updates and fewer glitches. Uninstalling now.

    While it does use less bttery power it really has some issues. When I click on a post to read and then use the back button it doesn't take me back to where I was in my feed. It sends me back to the top refreshing the feed and losing g

    Metal Pro means well but falls extremely short in what it promises to deliver. It is a laggy app riddle with hangs-running Oreo with 4 GB of ram on a clean install LG V20. Will not play HD videos. Video uploading is beta and like most features of this app is a portal to the mobile web site. The dark mode is poorly implemented and is non existent on app that already has a great dark mode built in. I hope this app gets better as I purchased the pro version to support the dev because I like the premise...but this is a beta 1 app at best.

    Sadly hardly usable now - constant redirects to log in screens, constant error pages when tyeing to open images, messages, notifications. Was a great app, but now largely unusable beyond scrolling though your feed.

    Always asks me to log in, then I swipe to messages or recent updates, then prompts to log in again... I have to keep closing and reopening the app... Still better than the Facebook app even with these problems

    simple, low resource use w/speed lowering implications. For casual use, maybe checking in one a day, perfectly adequate. Not for high-volume, or teenage, users. Easy switching between FB and Twitter.

    What's ridiculously annoying is if you look at a Marketplace post and hit the back button, it completely leave the Marketplace and you have to start all the way over from the top of the list.

    Perfect app as a Facebook and Twitter client. The only gripe I have is the UI inconsistency- I do not know if it's a problem on FB's side or Metal's but there are occasional glitches such as the reactions blacking out the whole screen when pressed.

    app itself is good but on a moto g6 play there are connectivity issues with Facebook either in native mode or using the app. i like the dark mode BUT there needs to be a distinction between posts as the normal black line in dark mode doesn't work... who'd have thunk that 🙄
