One of the main drawbacks of the official Facebook application for Android is its high resource usage, both in terms of battery and data. There are alternatives like Facebook Lite, which offers its functions with some limited features or other unofficial MODs for the social network. One of these is Friendly for Facebook.
Facebook functions in one single app requiring fewer resources
This is an adaptation in APK format developed as an extension of the Light Mobile website which allows users to use it as a Facebook client which uses up fewer device resources, while not giving up any of its features. But this client doesn't just adapt the official site's functions; there is added value among its features, and these are some of them:
- An all-in-one app: no need to download the social network and messaging clients separately. Both Facebook and Messenger can be used.
- Function for downloading Facebook videos.
- Advanced news-feed customization with filters for keywords.
- Block ads and sponsored posts.
- Anonymous viewer for reading other users' stories.
- Locking mechanisms for securing your account.
- Supports several social network accounts.
- Automatic day and night themes.
- AMOLED mode for reducing battery usage.
