    Needs a major overhaul. I've been using it for years but has some bugs such as when typing a post, you can't scroll up because the app will refresh or send you back to the last screen deleting your post so you need to start over again. There is limited abilities with this app. The marketplace is not compatible and it's just in need of a major update imho. I'm going to start using the real Facebook app for now and see how much difference it makes.

    apk 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.

    pro apk 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

    review 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.

    pro 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^^

    app 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.

    download 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.

    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.

    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.

    Connect to Facebook and Twitter and use FB Messenger, all without the performance drains of their respective apps. I have enjoyed using Metal to replace Tinfoil, and like Tinfoil, Metal is a small file size app.

    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.

    !!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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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 πŸ˜†

    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.

    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.

    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+

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Today is June 7th 2019. The last time this app was updated was June 7th 2018. During the past 12 months the app creator/s appear to have disappeared without even answering any app users problems. Meanwhile all other similar apps have been updated several times during the past 12 months, and are well worth looking into before even considering downloading/using this very dated app! The creator/s of this app should be ashamed of themselves, for leaving the app users "hanging out to dry"!!

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

    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.

    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.

    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 Twitter...an 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
