Best Android App Alternatives for Facebook

The main Facebook app is very heavy. It does many things. It may invade your privacy without you knowing it. It also might drain your battery very fast. This is a big problem for many people. But you want to use Facebook so what can you do? Some people use the mobile website but one good way is to use an Android App wrapper for Facebook. In this post here are some Android apps that are great alternatives for the main Facebook app.

One drawback is that all of these apps lack push notifications. If you want push notifications from Facebook, you would need to use the main Facebook app.

1) Friendly for Facebook

In reviews, Friendly was said to be the best at looking like the actual Facebook app. It probably will give you the best experience of use. Reviewers also said that it was very battery friendly. It is very light and fast to use for your Android phone.

This app also handles Messenger so you can use this instead of the main Messenger Android app.

2) Simple for Facebook 

People who used Simple said that it has worked great for everything that they have been needing to use Facebook for. You can get the pro version if you look around for a promo code. The developer who works on the app is very responsive to reported errors.

There are also some nice color themes and the ability to block Facebook Ads (called Sponsored Posts).

3) Hermit

Hermit is not like a normal Facebook app wrapper because it wraps many different apps. It will do the same for Twitter and other applications as well. By doing this it makes sure that your privacy and battery life are preserved.

4) Metal For Facebook and Twitter

This app has been around for a while and it used to be quite popular. It has not been updated in a bit though. This wrapper app is unique because it also wraps around Twitter too.

This version of the Android app is free. But there is a pro version of this app which costs some money.
