    Hey,

    Just wondering if anyone knows if Facebook home will be available in the UK from tomorrow if your using the Samsung Galaxy Note II or is this just for the US.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Do you have a reference?

    Facebook seems to say different...

    You really shouldn't try sounding like you know what you're talking about, because you CLEARLY don't. iOS won't be getting this anytime soon, if ever. Apple handing over control of the springboard to another entity? Yeah, right.

    That was my error. What I ment to say was that IOS would get facebook home with a partnership between Apple and Facebook. Zuckerberg mentioned he would like home to be on IOS with Apple's green status.

    Zuckerberg was throwing wishes in the air. He said FB Home could only happen if they could partner with Apple. I seriously doubt it'll ever happen.

    I don't have a compatible device, but when I check the link in the store it says

    Not available for your devices country instead of the usual not compatible with your device :confused:

    it worked, but it's pretty mediocre. Basically a scrolling news feed, instead of Touchwiz/Sense

    I side loaded it on my Note 2 because it's not available to download in the UK, but the app still does not work, just launches the old Facebook app.

    ----------

    Most non push chat programs will pummel the battery as they stop the phone sleeping properly.
