    There have been various posts mentioning Facebook Chat - however none of them really answer my question.

    When I was an iPhone user (don't hit me (I'm tougher than you :cool:)) I liked to use the Facebook App on the handset, and it had the Chat service built into the App, which was V. Handy.

    I liked to use it for private chats with some friends rather than posting on the facebook thingy - dont want every one to know ;)

    The Andriod App doesn't seem to do this or have I just missed it?

    If I haven't missed it and I am correct - anyone know why such a key feature would be on the iPhone App and not the Andriod App (doesn't seem fair)

    Will we see it any time soon - as I don't fancy using another software App to do something the iPhone users can :mad:


    Anyone enlighten

    i thought they were working on integrating chat into the facebook app

    one thing you have to remember is the iphone has been out for a long time and android just got big, so they will need a little bit to catch up in certain areas but don't worry, at this rate they will pass the iphone by the end of the year

    Looks like eBuddy uses data not SMS - what is the impact to battery life?
