Facebook Beta for Windows Phone 8

Just a quick update for those of you with Windows Phone 8 handsets.

Microsoft has launched a beta version of the Facebook app for those who like to try out the latest and greatest and I have to say that I really like it. The interface does seem a bit similar to those found on iOS and Android but it is slick and more responsive that the original Windows Phone app.

The good thing about Microsoft releasing a separate beta app is that you can have the beta plus the original version installed side-by-side if you can’t do without either or you don’t fancy wiping the original version.

Anyway, you won’t find the Facebook beta app by browsing the Windows Phone Store but you’ll need to use this direct link to get to it. There is no harm in trying it out and you can always can it if you don’t like it but I reckon you might be surprised.

Mind you, this app will only work on Windows Phone 8 so you’re out of luck if you’re on Windows Phone 7.8 or earlier.
