What's New

If you enjoy Friendly, please take a minute to reward our efforts with a great rating
- it helps immensely!

In this release we are introducing "Keyword Filtering", "Cloud Actions", and a New Facebook Video Player. We've also included fixes for the known issues and many small enhancements.

KEYWORD FILTERING

You can now filter your Facebook News Feed by keywords. To set it up, open the Friendly options, or tap on the new "configure" button at the top of the news feed.

HIDE POSTS by KEYWORD - lets you set up a list of keywords that will hide posts from your feed. This is useful to block posts you do not want to see (for example, posts about about the election results, unicorns, or cockroaches). This could also be useful to hide specific types of posts (for example, suggested groups or birthday reminders).

HIGHLIGHT POSTS by KEYWORDS - lets you set up a list of keywords that will highlight posts in your feed. When a post is highlighted, you will be able to quickly recognize it, and spot the highlighted keywords. This could be useful to not miss specific topics, or posts by specific friends.

CLOUD ACTIONS
Every post on Facebook and Instagram now comes with a Friendly Cloud Actions Button. Through this button you can access the additional functionality Friendly offers on all posts and content viewed in our app. This includes, saving or downloading articles, photos or videos.

NEW VIDEO PLAYER

We are introducing a new video player for Facebook Videos. You can now minimize the video (Picture-In-Picture) and keep browsing Facebook. You can also download the video to your camera roll and play it later.

App Description

Friendly is a fast, simple and secure app to access you Facebook and Instagram accounts. With over 10 million downloads, it is the leading Facebook app alternative for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac.

Friendly Plus with Ad Blocker is the premium version of Friendly Social. It includes Friendly's popular Ad Blocker.

Unlike the official Facebook application, Friendly has been optimized to save space on your device, and preserve your battery. With Friendly, you only need one app for all your Facebook, Instagram and Facebook messenger needs.

For users with multiple Facebook or Instagram Accounts, or families sharing a device, Friendly makes it easy to switch between accounts.

Friendly offers many ways to customize your Facebook experience:

- News feed Option: order timeline by Most Recent or Top Stories
- Facebook Messenger (no need for an extra app)
- Pick your favorite color
- Setup a 4-digit passcode to secure access to your account
- Quick navigation to your favorites friends
- Configurable Ad Blocker (save bandwidth and block ads and trackers)

For Instagram accounts:
- Photo zoom
- Download Photos
- Access Instagram on either iPhone or iPad
- Switch between multiple Instagram accounts
- Pick your favorite color
NOTE: You cannot upload photos to Instagram using Friendly. This is unfortunately a limitation of Instagram, which does not let third-party app post pictures. We will add this feature as soon as this is made possible

Many other small features differentiate Friendly from the official Facebook, Messenger and Instagram apps. To name a few:

- Edit Comments
- Add photo to comments
- Copy and Paste text to other applications
- Save Images
- Save to Pocket
- Save to Reading List
- Article View by Readability
