    Can anybody tell me a good alternative to the official facebook for android app?

    I've tried friendcaster and fast for facebook (which i appreciate is still in beta) but i'm pretty underwhelmed. They are decent but i still think that the official app is better and it's still poor.

    Just for the record i have an unlocked galaxy nexus running android 4.0.4

    I just use the mobile site in the browser. Looks just like the app, doesn't crash, and doesn't need permissions to my first born child.

    Likewise I just use the browser.

    The Facebook app is very slow in my phone and it crashes every time. I use browser only. I am using Dolphin browser & i have facebook in the speed dial. Facebook App and mobile browser version have the same interface.

    While the browser version really is the best alternative, I only check FB when I get a notification (which, as you can imagine, the web one can't do), so I'm running Friendcaster just for that.

    SLK notifications will give you better notifications than friendcaster.

    Third party apps won't show you content that if the poster blocks them, the Facebook app & the browser will.
