Windows Phone 7 App of the Week: Facebook

Maximum PC Staff

With one of the primary features of Windows Phone 7 being the myriad ways it integrates with Facebook it may seem redundant to offer an app dedicated to the social network. For Facebook die-hards though, sometimes you just need to dive into the service to tackle all of the aspects and features you are used to having available.

Facebook for Windows Phone received some interesting new features this week that make use of some of the new capabilities in Mango, and make it an extremely powerful tool for those looking to stay connected to their network while mobile. The Facebook app has always allowed you to keep track of your friends and provided you access to your notifications and pictures. The latest update (released on Halloween) allows you to pin individual areas of the app to your start screen, giving you one-touch access to your news feed, messages, or places. Facebook for Windows Phone 7 is a perfect complement to the built-in features of the platform, giving you more powerful capabilities not offered by the OS itself.

Facebook for Windows Phone is available as a free download from the Windows Phone Marketplace.
