App Facebook Lite

App Facebook Lite, Early this morning, Facebook published a new, lost weight variation of their app dubbed Facebook Lite to the Google Play Store. Focused on low-end gadgets in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we have to confess, we were plenty thrilled at the prospect of a 2G-friendly version of the usually puffed up Facebook app.

Not long after installation, our optimism was met with cold difficult truth-- this app was bit more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's nearly identical to visiting m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some key differences. There's no videos (like, at all) and unlike opening Facebook in your phone's web internet browser, Facebook Lite will supply you with push notices on your Android gadget, convenient if you're waiting on an essential message and desire to keep up with buddies without needing to refresh the browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is marketed as less than 1MB (252KB), however really took up 1.16 MB after setup-- requests a reasonable quantity of authorizations from your Android gadget, much like the full fledged 114MB (after installation) regular version of the app (only without the area information). Oh, did we discuss it's slow?



Even on WiFi, the app is slow to load, slow to scroll, and slow to switch between News Feed, your messages, and notices. Even with a high-end Snapdragon 801 equipped Android gadget, the "app" directly feels like molasses. However as we discussed, you do get direct access to your messages without having to install Facebook Messenger, so there's that.

We think Facebook truly had something here and were actually expecting a quicker, lighter, less function heavy, Facebook app for those of who don't need all the frill of sticker label stores and so on. Regretfully, Facebook Lite actually simply does not cut it.

Facebook Lite is presently available for all Android 2.2+ gadgets in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, or Zimbabwe by means of the Play Store. Those living elsewhere who had actually still want to provide it a shot, you can download it from us through the link below.
