    For those who are new.

    Get Astro File Manager from the Market. Its free.

    After click'n'drag'n the file to your phone use Astro to browse to the file, and open it to install.

    Alternatively, you can browse from your phone to this thread, and download the APK to install it.

    You dont need astro to install apk's.. you can just use the native files app. Good find though.

    Downloaded it, not sure if I like it though. Like the upload pics/media feature.

    Thanks for the instructions and the app!

    You might have to redownload it. If it doesnt work after re-trying, then not sure what could be the cause.

    Don't know. I click the link to xda and then save and it goes to downloads and then says error. Both of them do that. It doesn't even let me download the.apk

    Download on computer...

    Connect phone to computer via usb.

    Copy the file to the phone.

    Use astro file manager from the market to browse the file and open and then install.

    Im sure Samsung will update it! To make it better, for those who dont think its good :p

    It was just released Aug 31, and its their first release.

    When they do update it, ill be sure to post the APK.

    Oh and I also heard they are making their own Twitter App soon, so that will be next!

    Sweet, I like it. Simple yet functional. Am looking forward to the twitter app.
    Is it possible you could post the apk for the Samsung Market app?

    I like the look of it so far, would be nice if it had a widget!

    Maybe it does and I am missing it?

    Thanks for the link. I also received a file not supported error when downloading directly to my phone. I just downloaded it on my desktop and emailed it to myself.

    The app seems decent enough so far, seems to be keeping everything in the application and not kicking me over the the mobile FB site. Text input does seem a little wonky though, saw some errors when rotating from portrait to landscape - none of the text re-drew properly, just had a bunch of dots.

    Also, would like to see a larger input window when typing in portrait mode. As it is it seems you can only view one line of text at a time, which makes it difficult/annoying to preview and proof longer messages.

    Aside from that it seems a definite improvement over the native FB application, which I completely gave up on.
