All the Facebook, half the calories

THE VERDICT

Facebook Lite is a fully-functional official app for browsing the ever-present social network behemoth, designed specifically with lower-end and older devices in mind. It makes a ton of sense given the explosion of cheaper mobile devices internationally, and should effectively enable folks worldwide to connect via Facebook without all the bells and whistles that might not function well on their device.

THE PROS

This app is essentially the Facebook mobile site in an app wrapper. Likes, comments, photo galleries, links, newsfeed... all the stuff you know and love from Facebook is here, guys. The app weighs less then 1MB, which means just about anyone should be able to squeeze it onto their device. It's designed to work with 2G networks with limited coverage/connectivity.

A couple major differences from the full-on app: the messenger function is incorporated directly into the app here instead of requiring you to install something separate, and links open up in a browser instead of within Facebook.

THE CONS

Because of the slight differences in UI, it might be a little clunkier to use than the full-on app.

PROS

  • Very lightweight - less than 1MB download
  • Photos, likes, comments, messenger, newsfeed
  • Designed for 2G networks with limited connectivity

CONS

  • Interface slightly clunky
