Tommi Laukkanen is at it again, this time taking on the Facebook app (which no one else, not even Nokia have done a good job on. It pains me how terribly overlooked the Facebook app has been on Nokias. You would think it was some hobo social network with 5 people on it the way Nokia has addressed the app, not the biggest social network not the number 2 site behind google and the one most people spend time on the web. Fortunately for N900 users, you can power away on the FULL desktop facebook experience).

It’s available for download right now on Symbian^3 and Maemo 5 BUT you will need to have Qt 4.7.2 installed. I think N900 might already have it but for S^3 you might need Qt SDK beta.

Also it seems that it’s currently only looking at a simple feed at the moment. Small steps at a time, eh?

Simple and clean news feed is shown to you right after you launch the app. You can easily browse through latest status updates, shared news and links.

Touch news entry to open it in details view where you can see the latest comments. You can easily “like” or comment the status entry or if it contains a link you can open that in device browser with a single click.

Does Kasvopus mean anything? I thought I’d pass it through translator but it doesn’t come up with anything.

Cheers to Arts for the tip!

UPDATE:

Oh here’s arts again with Qt 4.7.2:

And from the comment, kasvopus means facebook in Finnish :p

Kasvo = face
Opus = book

Kasvo + opus = kasvopus = facebook. Tnx ZiPa, Arts and others!
