Twitter in comparison is very stable and has never crashed on me. It's down to the programmers, from day 1 they have concentrated on appearance and functions, but not enough on stability.

I hope this app is good enough, as Facebook app on Android has bad reputation and bad rating on Play Store. It is far from iOS version. Android version tend to crash constantly while opening pictures especially the ones that haven't render or appear on Newsfeed. I stop using the app, and place a bookmark to Home Screen instead and open it with web browser in mobile version. Facebook you better get it right on this one.

The most appealing thing about this is the fact it handles text messages and you can answer them from any app without leaving that app. Should be native to android that feature.

Ok,I think there has been too much fuss about this. It is cool, but nothing special.
