It's ok other than a couple things.

I think visually it is fine but functionally it fails. When a major feature like messenger causes the whole program to crash, you know there is a major problem with the programming. It doesn't matter if I click on a message on the side bar or if I pick a conversation from the little facebook menu at the top, either way the whole program crashes. I could just view it in a browser, but isn't that the point of having this app? So I don't have to open a browser? You guys need to dig into the program code and fix this.

Awful - featureless, crashes, evidently abandoned

App hasn't been updated in ages. Crashes repeatedly when messages are opened, making it impossible to use for FB messages. Impossible to set view settings reliably. Does not accept chat settings or respect chat settings set on the website. Even the mobile web browser version has more features. Uninstalling.

Windows 10 functionality please!

Windows 10 is great, this app, however, is not. Too bad there's really a big market for easy facebook management on the desktop. Including messenger and fanpage functionality.

Pretty good, but doesn't send images in chat correct

I generally use facebook as a messenger, and my buddies and I share screenshots a lot. With this app, I can paste a screenshot from my clipboard into a message and it will show up in the dialogue box, but when I try to send it the app only sends the WORD "Image". It doesn't send the actual image. Would really like this to be fixed.

No Windows 10 optimization!

This app hasn't been updated for Windows 10, so it doesn't mesh well with Action Center. One place where it works well with Windows 10 is that the app window can be resized and used for chat/messaging features. However, don't expect to received notifications consistently when new messages arrive. If you're on Windows 10 and want the full experience of how incomplete and Windows 8.1-heavy this app is, go to Hamburger (lame) > Settings. Once the Charms Bar (?!) pops out, click Account Settings, then sit back and relax while the app opens up a browser, loads facebook.com, and asks you to log in so that you can finish something the app should be able to do within itself. Thanks, Facebook!

Would like a better one

The text in the app is too small.. the font size in my laptop and overall is normal.. but in the app is miniature. Also it lacks from the :status.. watching, reading, etc that Facebooks has. Id wish they could change the font size!!

Horrible on tablets.

The actual news section is set very narrow, and small. This makes it very hard to read. There are large blank gaps between the news feed, and the friends list on the right, and also on the left, and you can't expand the view. Just using a web browser is better.

Please update the app

Since Windows 10 is coming and the SDK is available. I hope Facebook app should take advantage these new features especially for taking advantage of Action Center. It needs better notification and make it actionable like able to do quick reply and replying with Like. It also needs to see more message summary on Action Center, by properly using the description are of notification and avoid using title as a message summary. It also needs updated looks to match with new UI on Web and from Android/iOS counterpart. It needs to be on par with web in terms of features, even with ads is acceptable. Uploading photo needs to redesign and make it fast. UI needs redesign to match the new Windows 10 looks and make use the titlebar area for Facebook controls. Live Tile needs to improve too. Lastly the app really needs to be fast, very fast and snappy to use.

Where are they?

I don't understand this app... Where are all the extra features and why does it looks so plain and boring? Can't access groups, can't save videos or photos, difficult to share, doesn't show names when commenting and referencing someone, no picture commenting, app constantly signs me out... I'm sorry, but this app should not be this bad... Absolutely horrible... Needs to be updated badly!

No logging out?

What gives!! How could something so basic on a fb app such as signing in/out not be present in here?? The android & iOS version has it, how can the windows store version b missing this? This is garbage
