Review by NY Andrew

Best Mac Facebook app! - Originally had MenuTab which I paid for and used as long as its been around and loved it more then all the other Facebook for Mac apps and it beats leaving a browser open all the time. I was extremely excited when I saw FIPLAB released a new app for Facebook and this one is 10x better and smoother then the original. The original was getting buggy and had issues, but this app seems to have addressed all the issues and I am more then pleased! Thank you for creating this new app optimized for Yosemite and thank you for not charging your previous users for the new app which I’m sure will be a paid app! Keep up the great work which keeps your users happy!

Not a bad app with fatal flaw. - No matter if it’s set in preferences to not start with yosemite it still does. Nothing I can do to keep it from starting except to uninstall it unfortunately.

Cool App!!! - I haven’t had any issues. I wish I still had the option to load it when my laptop boots in the settings though.

Review by MitchBentley

Was an Excellent App - Update: I loved this app until this last update. Now it locks up my computer when start at login is checked. I had to go back to Menu Tab Pro. I’ll try again when it gets another update, but I doubt it will work if it isn’t backwards compatable anymore. I use OS 10.10.5 Yosimite still due to CS5 needs. Old review: I have been using Facebook Menu Tab for awhile - about three years - and I was hesitent to try this one. This is more complete - it looks more like my feed in a browser, and as far as I can tell, seems just as small and unobtrusive CPU-wise. I hae not actually looked at how much processing it takes, but so far, doing large files in Photoshop, renders in Poser, and other CPU intensive tasks, this has no effect on them. To me, that is GOLD. It rides in my top bar and can be set to only color notification, or growl, or whatever - so many more options than even the ‘Pro’ version of the other one. This has now become my default monitor for Facebook. Extremely convenient. Thanks for a great App!

Version 2.4
Review by Cridlebaugh05

Was Great But Now Has Issues - I’ve been using this app for a very long time and loved it. It’s been so convienant to use rather than haing Facebook open in my browser. I use Facebook a lot for my business as well as keeping in touch with friends, family, and business aquintances. However, in recent updates, there have been issues with the app. Most recently, it has been having problems when sharing photos, etc. My business is in photography/cinema. I need to be able to share photos, links, etc. reliably. There have been other small glitches with the app as well that need some attention. I really don’t want to stop using the app, but recently I have been having to rely on my web browser to use Facebook. I would love to see this app back up and running again. :)
