    I've been unable to use the FB app on either of my TouchPads (3.0.5) this morning, and the FB app on my Preł (2.2.4) has been wonky, as well. Last night they were working fine.

    On the TPs, the start-up screen spinner and "Retrieving your account" message were all that I would see. Slingshotting didn't fix the problem, nor did a device restart. All of the other internet-connected apps that I've tested were working normally. I could access Preferences & Accounts, so I tried re-entering my account password, only to get a "Bad request" error after tapping <Sign in>. At this point, I had nothing to lose, so I deleted the account and tried re-registering it, only to hit the "Bad request" again. Now when I start the app, it goes straight to Preferences & Accounts, with no account listed (of course).

    On the Preł, the news feed view loads, but a Communication Error notification slides up with this message:


    An error occurred communicating with the server. Error message: "Application request limit reached."


    Tapping <Retry> just leads to the same error message. Tapping <Dismiss> just reveals a blank news feed. Selecting Photos, Inbox, or Events results in a "Refreshing" status and redisplays the same Comm Error message.

    Is anyone else having these problems?

    Anyone have a thought on what might be going on?

    As of 4 PM EDT, both the TP and phone apps are back to normal.

    Must have been a glitch on Facebook's servers--it wouldn't be the first time that's happened.

    I posted about the phone error a few days ago. I noticed my notification internal was set at 5 minutes last night, so around midnight I changed it to something less frequent to see if a recently imposed limit (which it sounds like) is being hit due to frequent polling. Of course here is also synergy polling, but that is likely less frequent. I expect changing the notification interval will help, but I'll give it a couple days to convince me.

    Link to thread: New Facebook phone app error - temporary but puzzling

    I haven't had any new issues with the Touchpad app. It has always been a bit glitchy.

    Beside the normal problems like "Nan:Nan" as the time for notfifications (there is a patch for that) my Touchpad is working great.

    Working fine on my TP, both the app and the Synergy notifications. The FB app on the Pre 3 I haven't used in a while due to the fact that I'm not using my Pre 3 as much anymore because the battery is dying (again).

    Pictures aren't showing up on Facebook for me. Is there a patch for that?

    My own Facebook app is a bit slow, but it still works good.

    Do you mean your Facebook photo gallery is empty, or that pictures in wall posts are blank, or something else?

    The fix for pictures not showing up is > From a desktop browser, go to your Facebook setting and turn off https. < After you do that the pictures will show up in the Palm Facebook app. I had the same problem and @ekdikeo on twitter had that fix.

    My Facebook app works, but my problem is after I click on an item in the news feed all replies show up as "Anonymous User".

    Timezone patch is somewhere on this forum.

    As for the people who's phone FB app isn't working right anymore: grab the folder from your TP and use this: Touchpad Facebook App on Pre3
    to get it working correctly on your phone. It's a bit on the small side but it works fine.

    I have the same problem, anyone know if the facebook app is open source, ie Hp / palm release their code so it can be taken by the community? or we can do to make this happen?

    Yeah, it's the pictures in wall posts AND pictures in my gallery that don't show up.

    It's not open source. I asked on the Palm developer forums quite a while back. It wasn't part of what was open sourced, so I doubt anything has changed. Of course, that doesn't mean you can't dig around in the code and make changes for a patch.

    Or someone could simply write a replacement. Or enhance the Facebook Tablet app so that it's more useable on the Pre 3.

    An Enyo2 rewrite would be nice :-) Using updated API. Looking into LinkedIn Synergy now, hopefully can sort that in the next couple of weeks. Been busy and had little time lately :-(
