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
