Facebook launches client for S60 5th Edition

For all those bemoaning the lack of a Facebook client for S60, the void has now been filled with an official Facebook application for S60 5th Edition, now live in the Ovi Store. Implemented as a Web Runtime widget, it's not the speediest thing in the world, but hey, it's official and it's here and it's free. Screenshots and comments below.

Read on in the full article.

Nevermind the 3rd edition... where's the i8910 love? The app is signed for Nokia phones only!

@justmeinit: to get it from the i8910: browse the web interface of the Ovi store (store.ovi.com), login, and use the mobile link Steve provided to download it. It gives me certificate error, so you'll need to apply the partial hack in order to install it (something I haven't gotten around doing yet).

while this is great news, how did you find this in the app store? lets say i DIDNT have access to AAS site. when i go to ovi store and click RECENT, the same crap shows up as always, like the star trek ringtone, etc. and there is facebook widget mixed in with everything, its not even at the top!

To be fair to Nokia, the Ovi Store content does seem to be evolving - remember it's only been a week since it opened.... plenty of rough edges still to smooth out. I found the app by sheer All About Symbian doggedness and determination! 8-)

Looks like it may be appearing / disappearing at the moment. Patience if you don't find it first time!

And Steve seems to have a six sense for these kind of things.

Interesting to see Nokia Messaging and Mail for Exchange are also now available in the Store.

Easy find for me.

It's comes on the first page if I you choose "Newest - oldest" on Applications. Also on first page if I choose "Suggested to me" from Social Networks.

Wouldn't supprise me if it was pretty quickly on the first page with "Most popular" also.

Cool Facebook_.wiz

I can still download the Facebook_.wiz on my N95 NAM. Not that it will install... ...I have even managed to save it to a memory card to fiddle with it, however still no luck.

Strangely, on my N95 NAM, I have no content under any header, yet if I search, applications (both those compatible and not compatible) are returned.

Still a bit flakey!!

this might sound stupid but how do you install the applications from OVI to your memory card instead of memory card?

Fireup the ovi store application. Once it is loaded, go to Options - Account - Settings.
Then choose Installation preferences.

Here you can set wehre stuff needs to be installed

Change Connection?

Hey...
can anyone find / tell me how to change the connection its using?
I set a connection but can't find now how to change it!!
Also, is there any way to stop it asking me for permission every time it starts?
I checked up the app manager and there are no additional settings there!

It's all right so far... slow, but better than nothing!
Just wish there were some "options" where i could change settings and what not!

It's a pity Nokia haven't had the foresight to allow the Ovi store, and the Facebook application, to install on non-Nokia S6o / Symbian Foundation devices!

ARGHHHHHH
