Best Windows 8 Apps
4 April 2013
THis is the best presentation I've seen of Facebook anywhere. Really smooth animations, really well done tour when you open the app for the first time, impeccable use of semantic zoom and arguable one of the best uses of the metro design languages I've seen to date. Amazingly polished. This should be an app MS holds up as an example of how apps should be designed.
I can't see Facebook releasing an official one now because they will look very bad compared to this one.

This app has the most fluid and useable interface of any FB app to date. Addition of notifications/messages etc makes it pretty much perfect. My only suggestion are to add an option to reverse the order of comments on photos/statuses etc so the OLDEST can be at the top (like the FB site), and allow messages in snapped mode!
EDIT: Would really love to be able to see notifications and possibly messages when in snapped mode.

Social NV, Oh my! This should be the official Facebook App. It is so fluid, beautiful and completely bugless! All I miss is the ability of messaging which they say will be made available in the next update.
But All-in-all, it gets 5 stars from me for what I've got, and that too for free which even Paid Apps don't offer!
Keep up the good work! :)

It has a really good Interface. But also would really like to See a Way to go full Screen with all Your and Your Friends photos on Facebook here. Your friends Walls or Timelines are all good here to as Well. You can also Search for Stuff thru the Windows 8 Search Charm here to. But it seams like it is only limited to what Friends you have already added to Facebook. So it does not really help out all that to much here. Then I do not know if there is even a way to Send Friend requests to New people thru the App here. I also really like the animations to. But it seams like the Share charm does not really Work all that to Well here now. I also really like the built in Check-In feature here to as Well also. I had to knock My rating here down somewhat. Because the keep saying to Expect. Events, Groups, and Messaging in Future version of the App here. But I have never really seen them here Yet. Which is kind of Disappointing in Sort of a Way here to. Because they keep saying to Expect it here

This is such an awesome app, but am still waiting for the update with groups and messaging support

The best social app so far. Very wonderful interface and easy to use. Although it lacks some features such as requests, groups, and etc., it is still functional. There is also a mistake with the time posted, (always says 15hrs ago)...
Hope to see an update soon :) 3 stars

This app works well for interaction with Facebook. For some reason I can't install the official Facebook app on my desktop, along with several other Microsoft apps. Social NV works smoothly, though ... good work!

Until messaging get added to this app I am not happy as that is what I mainly use Facebook for. Very nice app otherwise.

One of the best Facebook app available to Windows 8/RT users. Thanks for the notifications support. Please add Facebook chat and messaging in the future.

This is a fresh way of viewing Facebook. I think the developer did a great job, plus it is very fluid and responsive on the Surface RT. Thank you!

The app SO FAR is good :), but I really REALLY miss being able to message people, that's one of the biggest reasons I get on Facebook; but all in all, it's still a great app. I uninstalled it and probably won't use it until there are messaging capabilities

This app is just a step away from greatness. It further needs:
- friend / unfriend people
- managing photos
- like / unlike pages
- joining / leaving groups
Of course managing your own pages would be great, but it's probably too much to ask
These may be limitations imposed by the Facebook API, however.
Worth keeping on eye on.

App would not connect. Could not find any settings that might help ... so I don't know what it is connecting to. Does MS give away that much info on me that this app would be able to sign into my social without me specifically saying what to connect to?? Hmmm.

Keep update Dev! :)

It works for the most part. But a lot of posts and stuff do NOT show. I was trying to find a specific post my sister made today and couldn't find it on the app. Opened up IE and went to FB's website and there it was. So there's obviously a lot of stuff that doesn't show on the app for some reason.
It's a fun way to re-envision the Facebook experience. Plus, it doesn't filter out the news feed the way you're used to, so you might see some things the web page might not show you.
Hopefully Messages will show up soon.

I have only had this app for 20 minutes, but I love the interface so much more than Facebook. Perfect on the Surface! Good job everyone.

This app is great, follows Metro principles and uses Windows 8 features very well. Kudos to the developer and keep adding features!

Love the design. Really easy to use !
Was wondering whether we'd ever get an "official" Win 8 FP app because the others were kind of "meh". Waiting no more... SocialNV is brilliantly done! Only suggestion I have is to add the ability to view photos full-screen.

This app is so beautifully designed that I actually felt like taking the time to review it. Add a good notification system in a further update and I feel like I finally found the perfect Facebook App for Win8!
Best Facebook client out there! Awsome job guys!
You can see more news at the same time than the web site, a real time saver! Not to mention it looks really better than the web site !
Does what you need it to, fast, responsive and nice set of features.
It is effective and efficient to use this app.
This is definitely the best Facebook client out there with a slick ultra-snappy interface! Good job!

I luv this app, refreshing new look, however, I do not know how to message my friends if I am on their fb account?
I had to rate 1 start now, cannot comment, got error message all the time. I am uninstalling for now.
