Facebook App Now Available on Ovi Store!

The one app that S60v5 users have been waiting for is now available for free download on OVI Store! The facebook app is a native s60 app that can be installed on 5800 and N97 as it is optimized for touchscreens.

This facebook app has big buttons and very clean layout, very much like the website. I am sure we do not need stylus for this interface. heh.

Here are some screen shots taken of the app on my 5800 XPM.

As you can see, that’s the login screen and once connected, it will bring up the news feed screen. Notifications like messages, pokes and friend requests are on top and at the bottom of the screen are buttons to your own profile, friends list, photos and inbox. Clicking on the green “+” sign will allow you to leave comments on the items selected.

Photos can be viewed in landscape or portrait mode. We can move around the gallery by clicking on the arrows and the Tags button will toggle the name tags on the photos on/off.

Screen on the left is how my own profile looks like and the one on the right shows the comment screen when you comment on a photo.

Wanna get Facebook on your 5800.. or *cough*…N97? Check out OVI Store now!

  • Wow…at last Facebook Apps in Nokia platform. But I feel iPhone Facebook much better in terms of interface :p

    One question:- If people send message to your Facebook inbox, will there any sort of “Push” notification display on your phone without you login to your Facebook apps?
