Can't post to the album
by erinpadow on 2016/05/30 21:51
The latest update has taken the ability to post photo albums. There is no option for albums anymore. If you post more than a few pictures they show up on the wall. How annoying!
Not good

App crashes, can't use
Invasive
by HisLady77 on 2016/05/30 00:51
I think that FB is become too invasive! Why all the apps? Why can't the messages just come to my regular messenger app???
Hiding/unhiding comments
by Firefly in the Sky on 2016/05/29 14:06
Update after update, and you still haven't addressed this: When managing comments, this app lets you delete or ban a user, but doesn't let you hide (or unhide) comments. This is a huge missing feature. I shouldn't have to go to a desktop machine to be able to do this. What's the point of this app if you're not able to do the same things as when you're on a computer?!
Notifications in main FB app are annoying
by Amiantos on 2016/05/28 18:12
It is incredibly frustrating that I still get Pages notifications in the main FB app even though I have this app installed. It's just infuriating. Every day I get a bunch of FB notifications that do not belong in the main app. Please stop.
What's the problem
by Lovememaybe on 2016/05/28 15:50
This app has been working good but now all of a sudden it's not working. You try to use it and it keeps going out. Please fix this as I have two different businesses that I run and this has been helpful won getting my work out there. FIX IT!!
Terrible.
by Frankiebonez on 2016/05/28 11:43
It just keeps getting worse. Now the notifications go to my regular FB page, no longer on the 'Pages' page that I manage, the app on my phone shows no notifications, just the regular app for my personal page. It's very annoying and I can't stop it. Tagging is also an issue.
Doesn't work
by michaeka on 2016/05/28 00:01
This app use to be great. I could manage my photography page no issues. Now NOTHING in this app works. I can't event publish a video to my page. FB you need some serious work on this app!!!! Or come out with a business manager app. Something, this is total junk!!!!
App does not recognize correct password
by Mainstreetwashingto on 2016/05/27 00:44
I manage a Facebook page for a business. I'm trying to set up my business page via my cell phone with the Facebook app and pages app. But neither will recognize the password I know to be correct because it is a password that I have confirmed is the one I sign into my desktop to(sat with my phone and desktop side-by-side and signed into the both simultaneously my desktop signed in my mobile did not.) I even tried to go into Safari and sign into Facebook using the credentials I know are correct as I have them written down and have confirmed they are the same as the ones are used on my desktop but still would not work. I have found several articles about this type of problem but no solution. There was an owner of this account previous to me and it was deleted but he is no longer employed by the party that hired me. I wonder if this part of the problem because when I send a password recovery through my computer I get all the information when I send a password request through the phone it is sent it to information I do not recognize. The phone number I don't recognize i have the option to send it to my email and select it but when the code comes Facebook reports an error and then nothing happens.I'm writing this review mainly because I cannot find a person to talk to about this issue and I need it solved. I understand app glitches the fact that I cannot find a phone number to talk to a live person about this is crazy. You all need to have a number to call to report issues so you know what to correct and to help your customers even if they're free customers. If could get this resolved I would be a paying customer because I would pay for advertising for my business. Please send me a private message to help me resolve this issue issue. Thank you.
Why?
by Fedupwithpagemanager on 2016/05/26 23:59
Why make things so difficult?
App not working at all!!! 😡
by Sweetgingercake on 2016/05/26 17:22
I have an iPhone 6S. I have had this app on my phone for nearly a year and HAVE used it but today it tells me I don't have an Internet connection. Yet, here I am writing a review...using my internet connection. My first attempt to write a review, I was given an error that read I could only write a review if I owned the app or downloaded and installed it myself. Seriously?! My phone did not come with the app pre installed so I obviously installed it myself!! I had to remove and reinstall it for it to allow me to write this.. AND it still doesn't work. Grrrr! 😡
Crashing

Copy paste
by H. The EMT on 2016/05/25 20:46
I really need to copy paste and this app won't allow it!!! I run a community page where people PM us personal messages that that want to ask the group but cannot put their names to. (They could be discriminated against and/or fired if their identity was known.) With out the ability to paste these in the app I HAVE to use a computer to do it. I work on an ambulance for 12-18 hour shifts..... How often do you think I am able to get to a computer that I can go on FB with.......?!?!
Complete crap
by Blooming lawn on 2016/05/25 01:48
No search features, can't see people your business follows, news feed in some random mess in order they think you want to see it. just nothing but a wish list of things it needs. Do not waste you time.
Getting worst with each upgrade
by sloco on 2016/05/25 01:29
Enough said!
New Update
by Usmcss on 2016/05/24 20:14
Why isn't there a way for page admins to see the news feed of recent stories from other pages that they’ve Liked as their page from a mobile device? And why can't I Like another Page as my Page? I can do it on my laptop! And why can't I search for another Page from the app? It just doesn't make sense!!! Would be 5 Stars if it had those things.
Poor insights
by Freemarkit on 2016/05/24 18:05
I'd like more data, but this app fare more LIMITED than the website. We need a Google Analytics of sorts for more robust reporting tools.
Lacking key feature
by Brimcd10 on 2016/05/23 11:39
There is no way to navigate to other pages that your Facebook page likes in order to comment or like posts from those other pages as your page. Likewise the regular Facebook app does not allow you to like or comment as your Facebook page, only your regular Facebook account. Therefore it is still necessary to logon to A regular computer to use these key features.
Faulty Notifications
by Ajanell89 on 2016/05/22 16:13
I have only just recently started to use this app after creating a page for my small Pet Sitting business. So far the only issue I have is that the notifications don't work properly. You get the initial notification for a message, like, or comment. Then a few minutes later you get the same notification for the same message, like, or comment that you've either already seen and/or responded to. It's really disappointing to not have a great and easy app for your Facebook page, especially when this is about the easiest way to stay in contact with my clients and potential new clients as well.
iPhone 6+
by Alucard Dracula on 2016/05/21 19:25
Works fine. All you complaining about it not working, just wait till Apple gives an update
Nope.
by Rosincula on 2016/05/20 18:41
It won't even download. Zero stars.

Does not work with iPhone 6 S plus
by stormbennett on 2016/05/19 13:55
Bought this bigger phone specifically because I have tons of clients that I do social media for. (And I wanted to do it on a bigger screen). And this app does not work on this phone. It does work on iPhone 5. But very disappointing that it doesn't work for iPhone 6s+. And nobody says anything on any review boards or even Facebook about the situation. I know that it's just not my phone because several of my employees and friends can't access their information from this app either on the specific phone. So my very first review ever deserves this one. I'm sure that they will come up with an update but my staff and I use these phones and it doesn't work at all. Even Facebook Ads app doesn't work. But that's another review at a later time. Have a good day everybody.
Can't paste. Useless app
by JoshTorresDJ on 2016/05/18 13:43
Can't paste links of things I want to share. Waste of time and space this app. Do not get.
So many problems lately.
by AlliCrow on 2016/05/17 01:17
I can't upload 10 second videos. Am wifi connected and have reinstalled app. Video file is small so it shouldn't be a problem. Can no longer share to page from profile to my most popular page. So many glitches.
Slow notifications and frustrating
by 0arcadian0 on 2016/05/16 22:56
Some of the notifications are slow to arrive when messages from users. It would be nice to NOT have to toggle between FB apps but think it's just best to stay with the original FB app.
"Scheduled" posts don't post
by Bakgam on 2016/05/16 12:22
Although I can schedule posts, they aren't posting any more so I have to hit the "post now" button.

Love it!

I love this app. It has simplified managing my business page on the go.
Poll
by KRB1965 on 2016/05/13 22:39
I think they should also have a poll option on this page app. I would like to be able to ask my customers through a poll which products they prefer than others! JMO!
Useful.. Sorta
by Mark Devin on 2016/05/13 18:21
I try to utilize this app a lot more to keep up to date with my music page. The biggest problem I'm having is the Edit Page section. I moved from Tucson AZ to Houston TX and can't even update my city. It's been this way for over 6 months.
Disgusting
by BrightBlaze on 2016/05/13 12:31
Is there really any need that you must make us pay for our post to get anywhere? It's a shameless move considering you get a LOT of ad revenue 24/7. Some page creators would kill to get their post out to the masses but the post reach remains at 17 people because the poster is simply poor and barely makes it by in life. You probably won't listen to any of this review but just please get rid of the boost post option and let people who like the page see posts first no matter what. If they don't like it, they can either unfollow or unlike.
Frustrating
by IndianJess on 2016/05/13 04:52
The only way to describe this app is simply frustrating. The new update has ceased to give me notifications when people reacted to my posts, and when people reacted to posts? That doesn't show in my stats for that post. How do I know that the rest of the stats are real? Yet, the "Boost your posts!" is still there, and effectually block me from even seeing things. Thanks, Facebook, for not allowing me to schedule posts off your app with your update as well! I guess managing on the regular Facebook app and on my laptop are going to be the way I function until this app gets fixed.
Finally -- ability to turn off the sounds
by Scottmbolt on 2016/05/13 01:33
Thank you for giving users the ability to turn off the in-app sounds. They are so annoying. Now the app immediately gets more stars from me.
Fix the messages
by Shabrea74 on 2016/05/12 15:23
Still after multiple updates the message inbox is faulty. Do not get notifications of new messages and the inbox does not refresh unless you completely shut down the app and restart. It affects you response rating because of this
Where is video?
by MrChevyCeleb on 2016/05/12 10:22
This app is decent but I'm baffled that, given Facebook's video focus, there's no way to navigate to all of a page's video in one spot. It makes no sense. In the regular Facebook app it's no problem so this is baffling. Otherwise it's a pretty good app, easy to manage your pages and see quick stats on posts. I do think insights should be deeper. The offering now is so superficial that it's mostly useless.
Sounds off!
by incstar10 on 2016/05/12 04:27
Please let the sound off setting work! I can't stand the constant sounds. It used to work several versions ago but last few updates leave sounds on. Turn it off!
Here we go again, Facebook.
by Dasutein on 2016/05/12 01:13
Facebook, you really want to know why people are rating this as a 1-star app? Simple. LACK OF FEATURES. I've sent in tons of feedback of feature requests and they have yet to be added. I'm surprised this app is even functioning yet it lacks features as a Page Manager would need. Get your act together, Facebook. Quit releasing new updates just to clear out bad ratings. Its obvious. You refuse to acknowledge all feedback as well as addressing bugs that still exists in these weekly updates. Why is the app getting larger? Certainly, you are adding useless code to make the app feel bloated.
It's ok for what it is
by Kyleh6180 on 2016/05/12 00:55
Not very impressed. It still seems buggy. Honestly don't like the updates that just say "bug fixes". I haven't noticed speed improvements or reliability improvements. That always means they have something to hide!!! Remember that.

No ability to hide comments from app
by mareally on 2016/05/11 02:33
As a page manager, one must go log onto a computer to hide comments. This app allows you to delete comments and ban users... Why not hide? This is super inconvenient and I am getting sick and tired of Facebook.
👎🏾
by Phillysdon04 on 2016/05/10 20:33

Immediate crash in iPad
by RonLevine on 2016/05/09 15:41
Works fine on my iPhone 6, but crashes immediately on my iPad Air. Deleted and reinstalled, but same issue. Running current iOS 9.3.1
Will not download
by Babybounce54 on 2016/05/08 14:32
The app refuses to download to my phone. I had to uninstall due to constant crashes and would not notify you of comments or messages. Fix this so that we don't look like we are ignoring people!
There's a little mistake
by RahimoSahra on 2016/05/08 10:14
Hi there! There is something that you should know! It is a great app to manage pages! But there's something missing! I can't comment or react as a user! i can only do all that as a page! Please fix that! Thanks Best regards
Sending messages always a problem
by Unicorns and shizz on 2016/05/06 21:13
I love that it's a free way to advertise my business but I always have problems with responding to messages. They never go through or appear unless I shut down and restart the app several times. Very frustrating.
Will not let me use
by lmnickname on 2016/05/05 15:10
I have pages on my iPhone but it will not allow me any access to my business page. I have tried several times to delete the Pages app and then upload it again but i continue to have the same issue, it just says "something went wrong" or "the page you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link...." This is frustrating because I respond to people regarding my business most of the time on my phone.
BRING OLD ANALYTICS BACK

Turn Off The Sounds!!!!
by Taylor1430 on 2016/05/03 09:00
Why did this suddenly start and how do I turn them off? I've gone through every option I can find and cannot turn the annoying chirps and pops off...is this not an option?
Why Not Pages and Groups?
by Green Cheese Media on 2016/05/03 04:56
Wouldn't it have been just as easy to make this app manage both pages and groups? Argh!!!
Owner Nonna's Cakes
by Di Xxx on 2016/05/02 00:43
Today all of my April postings have disappeared! What's up with that? They are back- thank you. Messages is still a problem, I get them most of the time but not always. When I'm notified on my personal FB page that I have a message on the pages manager, it won't open. Also Am notified when I pick up a new "like" and who that is, but would like to know who It is when one is withdrawn. I would gladly pay a small fee monthly if you stopped all this algorithm crap.
Minimal functionality
by goddessbj on 2016/05/01 16:35
Pages seems to be targeted solely towards getting me to pay for boosting posts. Now it won't even display my last post in the timeline. I'm probably going to dump it and go back to the web interface.
Author
by rnwritr on 2016/04/30 03:19
I had this app until one day it totally disappeared. I've been trying to download it for two days without success. What is wrong?
Like it
by Hogisan on 2016/04/29 18:17
This app has helped us promote our business. It has worked as well as we have. When we keep up with it and post current events and pictures, we have had good response. However when we have been lax and not kept up with the current events of our company there is nothing to keep the interest of people. It has been easy to manage the posts and pictures and monitor the reactions of people responding to our posts. Thanks
Message notifications.
by jazibelle on 2016/04/29 17:56
I like the functionality of this app OK. Being able to get all of the Insights, and the simplicity of the interface is pretty neat. What absolutely does NOT work is the notifications for messages you receive to your business. This means messages can go unread for minutes, or even hours, which in turn can have a serious and negative impact on your response time.
No need to download
by katywfss on 2016/04/29 05:57
It's a horrible app, crashes every few seconds. Impossible to use. I rather post from Facebook not pages manager.
So . . . what's new?
by adklib on 2016/04/28 10:32
Nothing new to note yet the stupid sounds continue. Enough already.
Go live!
by Jrkirk1980 on 2016/04/28 02:07
It would be nice if you could go live on the pages app that way you can go live as your brand. Etc.

Reduce the app size!
by JustASongwriter on 2016/04/27 18:49
This is one of those apps that I have to have on my phone against my will, would at least want it to have the smallest app size possible
Sounds are obnoxious
by MadMan7753 on 2016/04/27 04:55
The 'pop' sounds that were added with one of the recent updates need to go away permanently.
Livestream is great but....
by vivamexico4 on 2016/04/26 23:44
Facebook, you need to not have the live stream video saved on our devices! I have to delete the app just to recover all the space from my hour and a half live stream feed. Fix this somehow. It's really annoying.
Useless
by TiiSki on 2016/04/26 23:26
Nothing but a blank white page for a week now.
Stupid sounds
by Ace Slattery on 2016/04/25 22:04
Why are there now sounds. And why cant i turn them OFF. Quit trying to fix what aint broke.
App isn't working AT ALL
by This Little Lady on 2016/04/25 01:29
This is terrible. You force me to download this app to manage my pages and I can't even open it. I have messages I need to read and respond to but the app will not function properly. This is causing my respond rate to decrease and lower my ratings. Fix this ASAP
Sounds!
by Kjosy on 2016/04/24 19:42
Turn off the god damned sounds. How difficult is it?? Can't you see people want it to be optional????
No pages feed
by dbritt77 on 2016/04/24 12:20
I use to be able to share and comment as my page on pages that I had liked (my pages feed). But it seems to have disappeared on the mobile app. Please bring it back!
Latest update crashes
by am2gold3 on 2016/04/21 12:41
Cannot do anything with this update. Immediately crashes when trying to open app
Dislike this update!
by Sad iPadder on 2016/04/20 22:27
I dislike this April 2016 update very much. Please give us the option of using the former view of our boards. I can't find anything. I am heartbroken as a long time fan and user.
Doesn't give notifications
by Whtusayabtmymama?! on 2016/04/20 17:36
I get messages but either I receive a notice saying I have 10 msgs form the regular FB app (when its 1 new and 9 already read and replied to msgs) or nothing at all. Pretty frustrating.
Needs WORK!!
by Trrrrrrra on 2016/04/20 01:17
Updates make this app close out right after opening.. Like the App just needs LOADS of support !
How can I turn off the in-app sounds with the new update?
by Mpakpg on 2016/04/19 22:50
Love this app except for two things. I wish it would take me back to the home screen after I schedule a post. And I can't figure out how to turn off the sounds within the app. I never noticed them before so either a setting got reset or they added this feature. I don't want to hear all the click and pop sounds Also, now it appears that I liked all my own posts?! Weird
Why?
by G_Ranzel on 2016/04/19 20:38
Why not allowed to download?
Can't get messages!!!
by Nitadj35 on 2016/04/19 15:53
This is by far one annoying app. I get notifications every now abs then when they come through that someone has messaged me, but when I go to check messages to respond, they are no where to be found! This is not how a business page app is supposed to work and it needs to be corrected ASAP! Not good for business!

I can't view anything that I'm following through my page. This is a huge problem. Why can't I see pages that I follow through my page? When I try to view the newsfeed it just takes me back to my personal profile newsfeed. This is a huge issue!!! Anyone else having this problem?
Messages
by Ghoul frightfulghgh on 2016/04/19 02:40
For several days now, I will get notifications of messages, but am unable to access. They simply don't appear in this app. That is a very serious and detrimental flaw.
Sounds
by Super annoyed user!!! on 2016/04/19 00:07
Enough with the bubble click sounds. Remove it!
Useful
by Lulupoody on 2016/04/18 21:34
I use this app to run multiple pages, but I do have a problems. Often it says a post has 6 comments, or I'll get a notification stating someone commented, but when I check the photo or status nothing appears. I would also like there to be a separate banner notification setting for when you receive messages so I can improve my message time. In running 10 pages, I cannot always respond to messages in a timely manner unless I am constantly checking the app, which I cannot do with all of my other responsibilities.
Annoying sounds
by StamfordGuy on 2016/04/18 20:04
These chirping sounds are really annoying and cannot be disabled. They occur when I refresh my page among other times. They occurred two releases ago and I was thrilled the last release when they disappeared. This current release they're back. You've earned your 1-star rating.
It's ok but.....
by Mandy Schwarzinger on 2016/04/18 14:32
It just stopped working all together yesterday. I can't open the app and its crucial to my small business as I have followers looking for my updates! Fix it!
Trapped
by B2Dap12 on 2016/04/18 13:37
Glitchy, slow, crappy app. Wastes a ton of my time but, to my knowledge, I don't have a choice because it's the only app to manage my community page on FB.
Sounds
by Xoso21 on 2016/04/18 02:34
In app sounds are incredibly annoying and no option to disable them like the Facebook general app.
Stop the app sounds
by Hinny01 on 2016/04/18 02:00
Hate the new update. Everything worked fine. No noticeable difference in function except THE ANNOYING SOUND! Why!?
Annoying
by GaSeminole on 2016/04/18 00:00
Why does this app make sounds now? And why can't I turn them off? And why the heck is it over 100MB?!
Has great potential but is frustrating and needs a lot of work.
by Tolan_Chef on 2016/04/17 19:45
Push notifications don't work for me so this app is useless when it comes to helping your response time to messages. Also sometimes post images don't display in the app. I will continue to use it in the hope that it improves because it could be a great way to monitor the action on your business page. Please improve this app Facebook!
No way to turn off sounds
by jett71 on 2016/04/17 13:19
It's a useful app rendered hopelessly annoying by the constant popping and clicking whenever you interact with it. And there's no way to turn them OFF! It's terrible. 👎🏻
I'd give it a zero if I could
by KTPCO on 2016/04/16 19:27
Update doesn't work; Won't load; Can't delete. This mediocre app us now WORTHLESS!!!
Doesn't deliver messages!
by Gameplayer1346 on 2016/04/16 15:03
Gives me a notification that I have a message, then doesn't let me access. Can't answer customer questions! This has been going on for over a week now. I have to go to my computer to access customer questions. App has stopped working properly even after I updated.
Piss poor update

I am deleting this app. The sounds are driving me crazy. You removed the ability to turn them off. Bad enough you can't navigate outside of the main page area. Now they make it irritating to use. Not exactly smart are you.
In-app sounds are annoying!!!!
by Jaxhouse28 on 2016/04/16 14:20
On a recent update, in-app sounds were forced on us with no way to disable them. Then on a following update they were gone. Yay! Just updated and yet again THEY'RE BACK!?!?! Please remove the silly things or at least give us the option to disable them!!!
Unacceptable
by AstroDan77 on 2016/04/16 09:23
Pages should work just like my personal page. My page is space industry related and I I don't even have a feed and the ability to share like I do on my personal FB page. Just doesn't make sense and this system is just barely worth it.
What happened?!
by Ineffable2646 on 2016/04/16 06:01
I was preparing a post earlier today and when I went to post it, the pages app had uninstalled itself, and won't recognize the three pages I own I've spent years working on! What in the hell happened? Please fix this ASAP
Need to remove the useless in app sounds!
by Leia ACF on 2016/04/16 02:07
Can't believe the irritating sounds are back!! Please remove them!!!!!!!
Awesome Biz Tool
by SpiffyBethy on 2013/08/28 12:33
I use this app daily and love it! I like that you can now see the number of scheduled posts at the top of the page and that it's easier to access. I also love the ability to toggle between the different biz pages you're admin of. Although, there are a few things that could use some tweaking. The ability to tag my friends from my personal page would be very beneficial and also I don't always get notifications of messages which causes me to reply late to inquiries sent through the FB page. Fix please :) I also HATE the way the comments feature has been changed to display the most recent comments first unless they came as a "reply" to one of your comments. In theory, this sounds like a great idea but it bugs the crap out of me. Most people don't click the "reply" button on a comment, they just comment beneath yours and when FB moves it to the top of the comments section it has the potential to mess up the whole conversation (especially when your comment was made as a reply and stays in the appropriate place) and then people get confused by the order things show up in. This is why I stuck with FB instead of moving to Twitter - it drives me crazy. Just put it back the way it was please!! Overall, this is a great app though & despite the few things I don't like its been a valuable tool that I will continue to use.
Average at best...
by BNKKXU on 2013/02/02 18:06
MEH... Before the last update, I liked it much better! Like everyone else, I hate the logging in the way they have it now, it slow, buggy, and crash happy because it has to open your regular Facebook app! I wish it was more independent and actually save the login information like before! Aside from that, this app is VERY basic. You can make posts, check comments on posts you made, see basic info and that's it! What would make this five stars for me is if it were like the normal facebook app, but as you page! For my type of page, I NEED to see my pages' newsfeeds and more in depth antilictics, look at other pages, be able to share other pages, and easily see posts on my pages' timelines! Now you can sort of see the posts made by others on my timeline, you have to click on the notification, but when I wake up in the morning and have 60 notifications it's REALLY hard to go though them and find the ones I want to see. All in all it's an okay app, but very basic and lacks key features for me to run my pages on the road or away from my computer! Though I like to interact with the people that like my pages, so if you are a business using this for promotions only, or a large company etc, then the basic version of the app will work for you, but as a fan page/fledgling small online business, it's too cold and impersonal and I'm starting to get too many likes to do what I want to do with my pages!
Pay to Play
by v2Crystals on 2013/05/02 21:59
No mi gusta! Now fans have to manually select for your Page to be in their timelines / news feed updates. Getting this new task accomplished with strangers is even harder than inviting your friends to be a fan of your Page. It's so difficult to get friends to click one link to become a fan, way less than half of them are fans. Another roadblock to Page traffic is you can only invite friends once in your lifetime to support your Page. Most friends are unaware where the Page invite is posted on their timeline, so the invite remains invisible and unopened. I wrote a timeline Page update and waited a couple of days. Organically, 23 fans were reached. When I payed to play, after a couple of days posting a Page status update, 530 people were reached. How can I trust this number? There's no way of tracking who saw my promoted Page update. If I knew the facts I could improve my brand based on user data. Robots could be clicking on my page link for all we know. Can a home based business like mine pay to play the same game corporations are playing? I think not- and I'm upset people need to opt-in to have a chance at seeing my Page updates. I'm paying the same rates as huge companies are, so sadly, I will have to spend my Facebook ad dollars somewhere else where I have a chance of being visible while gaining brand loyalty, statistics, and reports that won't bankrupt my business.
Facebook Page App
by Snl7 on 2013/07/12 07:37
I love having a separate app just for my page! It makes this so much easier. I like being able to see the people who have liked my app, because I can't do that through my page on Facebook. Also I would like to see a Share link button on the posts I make. It would make it easier to prompt my business in multiple ways through multiple venues without having to copy and paste the status individually over and over again on the multiple venues. It will also allow my fans as well as other pages to share any important statuses on their page as well. And I would also like to see a way to add more photos into my albums like I can when I am on my page through a computer instead of Page App. It would make it easier since I and so many others have smartphones and use our phones to take pictures. By adding this feature it will allow me to upload the pictures straight from my phone to my Page using the Page App where the pictures are already on my phone. Instead of having to download the pictures from our phones to a computer then uploading the pictures to or page. It would eliminate having to go through so many steps just to upload pictures on our page.
Hope this update fixes my problems
by revsjh on 2013/04/12 15:47
So far my biggest complaint with this app is that if I have the regular Facebook app open and the pages app open, going to the regular one bounces me back to this one. it is a little bit of a pain, as I update both my personal and my fan page sometimes multiple times a day (I am a photographer). Glad to have landscape mode. I never work in portrait mode. Hopefully here is good things to come, as I use my iPad more and more. My laptop has become for heavy video editing only. ----------------- Update April 12, 2013 - recent updates work great and fixed my problems. Still supports my first generation ipad. Still my only complaint with the ipad /iphone facebook apps is no sharing. I need to share my posts to my business facebook page on my personal page as not all my friends liked my business page at this time. I also need to share to the groups I belong to and need the post to come from my business page. It is a pain to remember to copy all i typed before hitting post. Also, on the road, i mostly have my ipad not my laptop (laptop allows sharing). It is much easier to use the app than to open a web browser when using mobile devices.
Better, but still needs some help
by jwilson294 on 2013/05/15 14:19
Allowing the separation from the personal page is nice, but the ability to post on the page I manage using my personal page as the narrator would be helpful as well. I currently manage two pages for my business- one for the customers and one I'd like to keep private for my employees. We have created work arounds by inviting all employees as administrators and simply keeping the page unpublished. The option to have a private page would be better. We would prefer the page over the group option since it could allow us some measurability as to what kind of posts out staff care about and how they interact, but keeping it unpublished keeps us from gaining those benefits. Private page pls? Also the complications with the photo albums is a bit of a headache- trying to post things from the cell phone and create cute updates with pictures has become more difficult. We have one element to our business that has updates every other week or so. I would like a comprehensive album of all the activities captured in it for customers to view our past activities, while still offering me the option of easily featuring current activity pictures on the page. This is currently difficult on the page via the cell as well as the computer.
Messaging truly is dismal, notifications are terrible.
by Jetetaquine on 2015/02/16 21:38
When a customer messages us, we get a notification. When we reply, the message takes a very long time to send. The app helpfully tries to inform us of this, with a notification that says "Your message is taking a long time to send." Instead of coding that message, why not fix the issue so messages don't take a long time to send, huh? When the message finally sends and the customer replies, their reply doesn't show up until we back out of the message string, back out of messages, and go back in. Notifications about comments and likes are essentially unusable. The other day we had a troll posting some truly offensive comments, and we'd get a notification that he commented, but clicking the notification does not take us directly to the comment, just to the comments section of the post. So, we have to scroll through hundreds of comments and reply threads, manually looking for offensive material. Please make one notification per comment, and make clicking that notification take us to that specific comment! This would save me hours. As it is, I'm reluctant to continue advertising on Facebook because it isn't worth my time to police the increased comment traffic using this inefficient system.
Needs lots of improvement! ASAP!
by Bakinbaconwithmacon on 2013/10/27 02:22
First off the app is useable, but I have many issues with it. If you try to like sponsor pages as your page, the app instantly crashes, and you don't even like the page anyways. That's junk. Second, you cannot view followers personal pages from the page app, and that's kind of dumb too. If I am getting likes on my page, I would like to be able to check out a couple things about the people who are following rather than switch to the fb app, funnel through my pages and groups section, find the person from there, and proceed onward. 3rd, the message sending as a page is filled with bugs. Very slow, and sometimes it will send 2-3 copies of a message too. 4th from time to time, the insights for the amount of people your posts have reached will just up and vanish. Sometimes for a few hours, other times for a few days! Please update this app to be more compatible with the new iOS versions of iPhone/iPod/iPad and make life a little easier for those of us that use the page on a day to day basis! Too many bugs, glitches, and limitations. At this point, I'd rather just use the computer!
Poor Function, Good Concept
by Preshus30 on 2013/03/19 05:13
This app has too many flaws to list, many of them involve consistent freezing. One of the biggest ones I can see is when you try to go to the sidebar you have to go back through every page or event you've loaded before you can open the sidebar menu, this is really inconvenient! Facebook is set high standards for themselves and for everybody who uses their programs. Facebook needs to reanalyze it and almost completely rebuild it. As much as it would be nice to have to look of Facebook and the functionality something more practical is in order. We are page users and business owners as much as we like to use Facebook personally, something for businesses and other pages can be more cut and dry. Just so we can have the speed and access to the important information we need as page owners to keep up with member demands. Facebook has a good concept going, they just really need to work with it a bit more. I think the more they work with it and the more they tweak it, the better it will become and before long will be the most masterful tool for editing your page, it may even come close to a website editing tool.
Great idea, still needs some work
by Bdasselin on 2014/09/17 18:14
This is a great idea for those of us actually managing a Facebook page, or even better if managing multiple pages. The app is great for checking some things and getting notifications. However, the app doesn't work the same as the web interface. For example, when adding an event, you cannot simply enter the name of a place like through the web interface, you need to "find" a place and turn on location services. This needs to change and it does not work for me at all on the app so I have to use the web. Similar issue with approving posts. The app doesn't let me do this at all, only gives me the option to hide posts from others when they are hidden by default and need to be approved in order to become public. This is something I was really expecting to be able to do with the app. Great idea and still useful as it is, but needs some work before I can give it more than an average rating and I am hoping the changes/fixes come because I really want this app to do everything I need to do to manage pages.
Typical Facebook Garbage
by Holesinozone on 2012/06/10 22:06
From the braindead burnout that brought you the basically unusable Facebook Mobile app comes this hunk of crap. Billed as a way to "manage your Facebook pages on the fly", in reality this app only really allows you to post on your own page's wall as yourself. That's literally it! That's all! You cannot add or edit pictures in your galleries. You cannot view or respond to messages sent to your page. You cannot comment on other pages or even navigate to other Facebook pages with this app. Also in typical Facebook fashion this app is riddled with glitches and bugs. Other peoples posts on your page appear and disappear at random. Notifications are sketchy at best. Sometimes it says you have notifications but won't refresh to allow you to view them. And sometimes the notifications get lost somewhere along the line before they even reach you. Although not nearly as buggy as Facebook Mobile, this app is a profound frustration right in line with much of the half-assed garbage Zuckerberg has crapped out in recent years. If he's at all curious as to why his company's stock is in free fall, maybe he should ask whatever moron programmer he has developing these horrible applications.
Very Limited.
by zZDeadRiseZz on 2012/12/21 23:50
The app itself is jam-packed with bugs in it. There are problems with posting statuses, scheduling them, and even deleting them. The very same goes for uploading images; every time I try to upload something, it always returns with a “Sorry, due to technical difficulties, etc. etc., please try again later.” message. On top of that, the app itself is insanely limited in its amount of features. These restrictions to the user include, but are not limited to the following: adding/editing Admins and their permissions, editing the page description, changing the cover photo of the timeline, it's ability to navigate other pages on Facebook while under the identity of the page, and not being able to create a new page from within the application. Personally, I would rather purchase a desktop and use Facebook on the desktop site to edit my pages. Honestly, this app has really wasted my time and patience. The Facebook mobile app can manage your pages better than the app built specifically to do it! If you can fix these issues, then I would recommend this; otherwise, don't even waste your time downloading it. It's not even worth the memory it consumes.
Great app! Still some limited functionality
by Tarramisu on 2013/02/28 15:26
This app is continually improving! However still has some limited admin functionality. The photo bugs seem to have been ironed out! However the only current admin function i really wish was available would be to be able to share photos. I can only use this functionality from my home base mac. Id be able to do my business from my ios iphone if this was available. i share products from my page daily! Please help & bring this functionality. confident that with all the positive criticism this app will forge forward & continue to make this app better! Just need more behind the scene admin functionality! Also, when responding to a customers comment, i'd like to use the customers name specifically like in Facebook so i know they'll see it! Other than that, this app is amazing & was created for the right reason just not fully there yet! It'll happen!!! :) thanks guys!
This app needs more
by Tmoneyswagg on 2015/09/05 15:58
I really do love this app because it makes it much easier to run my page. This is a much simpler process than through the Facebook app, but what I would like to see is some sort of setting that allows posts to the page to be intermingled with the posts from the page. I run the page for an organization with many members who would love to share pictures with other members of the organization through the club. Unfortunately no one can see the posts to the page. I think it would be amazing if in your next update that feature was added. I know that there are also many others who would love to see some sort of feature like this one included in the next update. Also, I'm not sure if this is a problem with pages or with Facebook, but when people make a post to the page they cannot post more than one picture at a time. It would save a lot of time and page space if there was a way for followers of the page to post more than one picture to the page at a time.
Not pleased with update...
by Uprootedtraveler on 2016/02/13 05:17
Once upon a time a few programmers without any social skills came together to create an app that was just useful enough to be helpful. They included colorful charts that displayed all sorts of vague information about how popular you were. After months of puzzled head scratching, you begin to decipher the strange lines and random numbers. Then suddenly they were gone! Exposed and scared, these poor retched programmers removed all traces of helpfulness from their app. Leaving you to wonder...just how how awesome are you really? Self doubt creeps in and one begins to wonder...was my business really attracting that much traffic to begin with? No! Can't be...you saw the old charts. People came and they loved you! Spending lots and lots of money as they did so...but you didn't share did you? That's it! You didn't need to promote your site at the expense of hundreds of dollars a month. The programmers became angry and took it out on the one feature that they should be expanding! Even now as the dark shadow of informational darkness sets in. Your survival instincts kick in and you begin to develop...ESP.
Non-Social Social Networking App? Why?
by DMDG MUSIC on 2013/10/04 06:58
I have to agree with others, There's nothing this app does in addition to the existing app that makes it worthwhile. The missing functionality that would be required for the page makes it completely unnecessary. The whole point of social networking, especially in the case of a page, is the chance for page managers to interact with fans interested in who they are or their product. In this case the inability to do such a simple thing as mentioning someone in a comment response does a lot to cripple a page manager's ability to make use of this app for successful management of a Facebook page. The features are out there on the desktop browser version, so Facebook obviously knows it's important. Why the missing functionality at such a basic level? The list goes on in regards to missing functionality with this application. My suggestion… Don't waste your time releasing a nap that doesn't provide basic needs when it is already available from a mobile browser, and definitely don't waste your time downloading an app that hasn't fulfilled such simple requirements.
It is supposed to be better than the FB app right?
by darthkat on 2012/07/09 05:26
Too much missing. Neither FB app has share options, you can't tag people in posts (except as "with" and that isn't how I want it) can't tag other pages for cross marketing and other uses, can't edit albums, important for retail info, can't click posts from other people to see their pages or profiles to post on their pages, when I can click a link, it takes me out of the app, so I can't post as my page, it posts as my profile, or when I like, it is as my profile, not my page which is what I want to do. Yes all things can be done on the computer, but many of us spend a lot of time mobile, as I was this weekend and this weekend it was important to share and network, to help generate more likes, and I couldn't so it was pretty useless. For people who take their pages seriously, why give them an even more stripped down second app? I can do a tiny bit more in the FB app, like post as my page. It's just not helpful if all you have is insights, oh and you can't even see the list of who likes your page.
Pretty good
by Loren Molloy on 2014/12/24 15:47
I have said this before and I'm asking again Please allow the app to see and utilize the phones multiple photo folders. I have different folders of pictures for different projects and to have all of them lumped into one folder is horrendous. That one folder causes it to become a nightmare to find one particular photo. Also I should be able to comment as myself personally instead of only being able to comment as the page Im using & tagging others needs work as does the ability to repost something with what you wrote being also reposted. As it is right now if I choose to repost a status from someone else (ex. Quote from Steve Jobs) and I choose to write a caption of my own to be included The person who likes my caption and chooses to repost it Can not (as of right now) have my caption included only the reposted status(example:quote from Steve jobs only) Those things being fixed would be greatly appreciated!
It's a start... I guess.
by alexevansohio on 2012/06/05 03:16
I was really psyched when I saw this app. A separate app to manage Facebook pages. Awesome. The regular Facebook app is appallingly bad for managing pages (displays that you have notifications for the page but you can't see them...), so this must be designed to let you take advantage of all the cool page features that are not available to mobile users. No. Not quite. Notifications are sparse. No way to read or even be aware of messages to your page. Glitchy updating, so it's faster to look at the page in the normal app and guess what the notification is than to wait for the Pages app to update. There's also still no way of accessing different tabs within your page, other than photos and about and a cut down and less helpful version of the Likes page where you can see who's viewing your page, etc. The fact that there is still no mobile support at all for any of the apps that are on Facebook pages is ridiculous and I was really hoping this app would fix it. I hope that the next update addresses some, if not all of the problems above. I shall hold out for that.
Only Somewhat Helpful
by Mawk3 on 2013/09/08 16:18
Perhaps I am missing things, but I think our analytics/notifications could use some work. These are also some complaints I have for the Facebook app itself. We never get notified when someone shares our photos, we cannot see who likes our page unless we're logged in as ourselves in which case I can only see who on MY friends list likes the page. Probably for privacy issues but we would like to offer incentives to those who do like our page being that our business is just starting up. It does help to have this handy on my phone, but I find myself running up to my desktop to fix things. Especially if I made a status update on my phone, but it had a typo in it. An edit post feature would be great to have on the app. If its already there, then ignore this, but I don't know how to fix a typo or other error other than deleting my post and then rewriting/uploading everything all over again just to fix a simple mistake, which is very cumbersome in my opinion. Because of that I use the computer to make posts and only have the app to track things.
Facebook is doomed...
by WarMaster Photos on 2013/01/17 07:03
...for many reasons, a big one being their apps are worthless. They work, I guess, but the amount of things you CAN'T do with them is astounding. You have to login every time you open this one. Insights are limited. You can't view event pages. (That seems pretty important.) You are informed if someone posted on your wall...but you're given no option to click it and see what they said. You can't invite anyone to events (you can with the other FB app...by SEARCHING THEIR NAME). Ugh, I could go on for years. Facebook apps are a ludicrous, insulting joke. I know they're free and Facebook doesn't owe us anything... but the entire experience, at this point, is awful. They've never made the slightest attempt to make their services better or less painful for page owners (meaning half the waking world). Nowadays you have to pay Facebook money to get your posts seen by anybody anyway. It's time to move on, people. Facebook is for grandmas now. In 2013, Google+ and Tumblr are going to take over. By 2014, Facebook will be dead and gone and we'll think of it like the crappy haircut we had in middle school.
Why???
by HeatherJ.H. on 2013/06/02 16:04
I feel like every update takes away functions that were helpful. Why can I not change the cover photo from my ap? The point of having the band page is to have a way to keep our fans engaged and communicate with them. I feel like Facebook makes this as difficult as possible. Even with promoted posts, we get so many comments from fans who say "you were in my town? If I'd known I would have come to the show." This is incredibly frustrating. Why on EARTH do we not have the capability it message our fans? If they "liked" our page, it's obvious that they want to hear from us. And why can we not create events from our fan page and send out to all of our fans? This isn't like harassing an entire friend list from one's profile page. I feel like the band pages are a different thing and should be treated differently. If Facebook does not become more helpful to the band community, it's only a matter of time until someone creates a platform that is, and there will be a mass exodus from Facebook, just as there was from MySpace TO Facebook a few years back.
Needs much more improvement
by Jonathon.P on 2013/04/21 18:03
I love the fact that I can create a page and draw in audiences of like-minded individuals but this app is so limited.. I would like more customizable settings, photo albums, I think it would be a great idea for Facebook to finally add hash tags to further merge together conversation and topics ESPECIALLY WITH PAGES.. It would be nice to have groups, add documents or PDFs for posting bulletins or Events for PAGES, and a more intricate system to draw more people to "Like" your personalized page.. The people at Facebook are really doing a great job innovating the FB app we all know and love today, but why have we forgotten about pages? Here's an idea: How about we put PAGES and the FB app together, just like they tried to have a Camera app and Messaging app separate it has proved to be more effective to keep everything in one place, much more convenient and seamless.. Facebook is a part of everyone's life, serves as a Living Breathing Life Newspaper and we would love the Folks at FB to create that experience seamless through one app !

Half-functional
by Bham-Hill on 2013/01/04 13:27
While it's cool to have a dedicated app to administer pages, the app falls short of even the current features available in the regular facebook. The "positives" of this app are all things one would expect from it, so only the glaring negatives are mentioned here: Status updates are limited/truncated; the app does not allow landscape mode; you cannot add/remove members from groups; you cannot remove likes; you cannot manage your ads; page statistics do not update frequently and are not as detailed as on the computer; you cannot select profile or cover pictures from existing fb albums but at forced to take a new one or upload from phone (thus if you want to switch back to a previous photo via mobile, you have do download it to your phone then re-upload it anew). In all, this falls far short of my expectations from a reputedly crack team of developers at a publicly traded company. Come on guys...y'all aren't in Mark's basement anymore.
Needs improvement
by SavagePatchKids on 2013/06/16 22:01
There is no way to see the newsfeed at all- which you cannot share pictures or posts from. There are very limited benefits of using this application over the regular Facebook manager- even the insights are difficult to find and less thorough now. In fact, I can't think of one feature offhand that the regular FB app doesn't take care of. The only reason I haven't uninstalled it is because I am hoping for some EXTREME updates, especially in pertinence to access to one's own photos, editing & sharing. Also, I would like to able to pin posts to the top of my page and have tagging abilities (especially given the new hashtag capabilities on the desktop site) in both status updates and in photos from the Pages application. Added the scheduled post option to every sharing feature would be great, as well- it only comes up currently when copying and pasting links. I really hope to see these (or even better) upgrades in the future. Thank you for your time.
Glitchy and crappy
by Lorandrea on 2014/08/17 17:43
I'm forced to use this app because I have to manage my business page on the go, but I have to say it's very poorly designed. If you hold your finger down too long – which is a necessity on an iPhone if you're trying to place your cursor accurately – it just posts what you're writing right in the middle of what you're doing. It also doesn't give you the option to edit nine times out of 10 – I have no idea why sometimes the edit option appears but the rest of the time it doesn't, but it's a piece of garbage and they really need to fix it. I don't know if this was designed by Facebook, or if this is an independent app, but it's typical of everything associated with Facebook – poor design, poor execution, lousy interface. Another complaint – you can't cruise other pages in order to share posts. I have to go through all sorts of contortions with my other Facebook app to make that happen. And you don't even want to hear about the problems that thing gives me.
Great App! Only minor downfalls
by Squid_Baby on 2012/09/29 06:25
Love this App, helps me stay on top of all my comments, questions & inquires about my paintings. The only thing I would change is being able to see who is "talking about" my page or the ability to change my pages name, even after it has over 200 "likes". I would also like to be able to see who all my fans are, by clicking the, "total likes". It would also be cool if I could sell my paintings from my page, I'm not sure if that's possible or not, but if it is, I'm unaware of it. Basically, I would like to have more guidance in showing me how to utilize my page better. I feel like there's not enough explanation or guidance provided & feel like I've had to do a lot of trail & error with a lot of the features. I know that sounds like a lot of things need to be improved but overall, I love this app & love being able to access my page so quickly. 🎨
Needs improvement to be a successful media tool
by Chicago Flaneur on 2012/12/29 15:58
As a social-media manager for a luxury hotel and a top U.S. restaurant, I use Facebook Pages daily. While the updates continue to improve the app, Facebook needs to understand that businesses using this app must be have the same functionality as the website. I can't "pin" a post to the top. I can't "edit" a post once it is posted. None of this matters much for my personal page, where the stakes are low and I can wait, but if Facebook wants to continue to be taken seriously as a media platform for businesses large and small, then it simply must make this functionality available in the app--or if not in the app, at least in the tablet version of Facebook on the browser. I currently have three ways to access Facebook on my iPad--browser, Facebook app, Pages app--and none of them allow me to edit or pin posts. And so once again I find myself making a 45-minute trip to my laptop to make a minor but important function on my browser.
Add a feature please!
by midnightrealm on 2014/11/18 22:16
I don't really do reviews. But in this case I will because I use this app a lot. First of all I have no complaints except maybe just adding some features to it. My biggest one would be a way to see photos tagged to you because throughout the day, away from my computer, I would like the ability to repost some of the photos tagged to me. Also the other thing is being able to view photo albums and such. We have no way to get into our pictures unless it's recent on our newsfeed. So that would be nice. Especially as a photographer who wants to use fb as a portfolio. The app is smooth and fast (used on an iPhone 5) if it's slow for you then it's most likely your phone and/or operating system. So please make these things happen. It would be awesome. Looking foreword to Facebook at Work.
Way Too Many Bugs. Wish I Had The Older Version
by OutdoorEyes on 2013/08/22 11:07
Tremendous amount of bugs: 1. Can't view all your new members. 2. Took away the ability to edit your scheduled posts. I use it all the time and now I have to go to my computer to do all my changes. I can't even edit the text if I go to the website on my phone. 3. Now the regular Facebook App doesn't list the newest comments and members. 4. The list more button to see additional posts does not work. You can only see a few posts and older posts can not be viewed. 5. If you promote an older post with the computer, you can not continue to promote it because you can't view it. 6. Can't see my calendar posting, 7. Many of the side buttons don't work, 8. Moved the scheduled listing button to a stupid place on the screen for when you scroll down to view your posts, you now have to scroll all the way up again to view your scheduled posts when before, the button was always on top. 9. Now you have to use the Facebook App, Pages App and your computer to make all the changes and addition, when before you had to rarely use your computer. 10. The statistic numbers for a single post never match on the Facebook App, Pages and the computer. You have to always look at all 3 places to figure out the right statistics. 11. Too many more bugs and I am tired of writing them... This was not an upgrade, it was a downgrade. And why hasn't a reply to a comment been fixed/added. It does not post the reply to the comment.
Works great for my needs
by ItsAllBobbins on 2015/12/15 04:58
I manage about 10 pages for clients and love having an app separate from FB. Maybe I'm unusual in liking that there is now no need to open FB which bores and irritates me in equal measures. I can bypass the bull and go straight to the pages. Love it! A tip -- you need to "allow" notifications first time opening the app after install or the notifications (badges, banners, sounds) won't work. I had to delete and reinstall to figure out there are no iPad "notification" settings for this app, and none within the app itself (that work) it's all set up on install. When the app asks if you want to "allow" notifications, do it. There are no FB help pages addressing this issue, and if there were, there might be a few less negative reviews because the app works great now it's set up right!
If it ever loads...
by Tinadino3677 on 2015/03/30 19:14
I like that i can work with my page separately through this app....but its a pain to use at times. I dont always get notified when i have new notifications. I dont get the sound or the little badge icon even though they are set up that way. When i do get them, it takes forever to update and actually tell me my new notifications and messages. I see the new notification icons but when clicking them the icons go away and nothing is new. Close the app, open, new notifications but they don't load. Takes a few tries. Also, when someone shares one of my posts, it tells me but never shows me. It just sends me back to my page. This app needs a lot of work. Again this app is horrible. Update after update but it doesn't fix old problems and I really don't see any improvements. Still does NOT show me a badge icon for new notifications ONLY for messages. Never for new likes, comments, or shares. I shouldn't have to open an app to get new notifications to show up. Now my problem is the opposite of before!! Now I constantly have a badge notification and there is nothing in the app! I click and open and refresh everything I can and it takes forever for the badge notification to go away and I usually never can tell what I did to remove it! Seriously your guys in tech are a joke. And now the pictures in the messages won't load. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I DONT PAY TO BOOST MY POSTS!! Why would I pay for a service that never works?!
😎Great Group Tool
by Kshalaa on 2013/03/08 21:19
I enjoy the pages feature! Kudos~ I would give 5 stars if the write post side also had the ability to upload other forms of media such as video, photos, etc. I also recommend the ability to like as your own name on Facebook when clicking the page from your linked account. Most importantly, when posting more text- the see more feature takes you to another page to type more but when attempting to tab down after pasting information it is very hard to verify what you have typed or to even correct it as it toggles between done and see more not allowing you to do anything but click back. That needs to be expanded for editing because on the iPhone you can only view it vertically and once the text display pops you can only see so much of the space to type. Please fix that. Thanks!
Useful, but still flaky
by Paul Braun on 2012/12/24 16:26
Every new revision seems to fix one thing and break two more. There are still a lot of things you can't manage on your page with the app. And when you share photos, you are severely limited as to the length of caption, while no such limitation exists on the web version. Once you manage to get a photo posted, and fans comment on it, you do not have the ability to either "like" or delete comments. The iOS version also lacks the ability to share a video clip, something that should be natural for an app that runs on essentially a video camera. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does still crash a lot. I manage a couple of fan pages for musicians, and I often get frustrated enough to just go to those pages in the regular app (which has plenty of its own quirks and limitations). One of the other frustrating things is that the iPhone and iPod versions behave quite a bit differently. Maybe one of these days, Facebook will actually take these apps seriously and do a thorough rebuild/testing/functionality cycle. Social media is, by nature, a mobile thing. Not giving you full functions in the mobile app shows a lack of understanding that. Also, the most recent update broke the login mechanism so I have to log in every freakin' time I launch the app. Not a useful "feature".
Profiles
by Slyami59 on 2014/05/09 12:16
I do love our dogs "Cause" Page. A few suggestions. If we could tap on other peoples profile picture and be able to go to their page like we can on regular Facebook. And if you could slide in another "Pin to top" selection so we can have 2 things that are important to keep up top. Can there be a follow button to follow someone on causes or community pages? It would be nice to actually see who is a follower on one list. I'd like to be able to tap on someone's profile picture as we can do on personal page to go to their page. Also, hardly anyone sees my page without paying money so more people see it. On a Cause page one would think it would be accessible for everyone to see. And last but not least why can't we "edit" a post after it goes up like on our personal page? At least have the same features as regular personal pages.
Well, it's better than nothing.
by HSyren on 2012/11/27 18:22
It doesn't always send notifications. You can't save your own photos to your phone, something that is helpful when you need to tumblr a post. No zooming in on photos, helpful when a partner posts. When inside app, sometimes it tells you on the page menu if there is a notification, sometimes you have to go to the page to find out. Super annoying when you have four pages to manage. I think it should be more cohesive in actions as the FB app. Lots of stuff that is counter intuitive because it functions differently than said app. Update: Still not enough like original FBook app and now, since the update, it is SLOWER. Ugh. Update II: ok. Just fix this already. Take the original fb app and change it *just enough* to apply to pages. I can't check on posts by others. The photos are all weird and I can't zoom in. It's slow. Sometimes I don't get an update for days. Please. Make it better already.
Needs A LOT of work
by rgtwma on 2013/01/25 15:56
It's decent for quick status updates, but I'd really like to be able to: A) Update Page information (about, location, etc) - just make sure it asks for a password before making those changes; B) Tag people and other businesses in posts; C) See my Page's newsfeed (as opposed to my own); D) Queue posts with images for future posts (This issue is particularly frustrating to me because I can queue regular posts and ones with links, but the queuing option disappears when I add an image.); and E) When posting a link, show the preview so I can delete the full URL from the post itself. Basically, I want more full-experience editing and updating options as the normal laptop browser. As a small start-up, we are often on-the-go, and we are usually carrying only our iPhones or iPads with us. It would also be nice to have a pin security option before submitting posts. They're easy enough to delete - if, for example, your child manages to get into your app while using your phone as a racecar - but you could have the option to turn it on or off if you didn't have such potential issues. Finally, why does it have to log in every time I open the app now? It didn't used to do this. What's worse is that now it only loads about 50% of the time. I used to be opposed to third party apps for FB, but now something else might be worth it.
Broken now in my opinion
by PoeDiddley on 2014/06/24 16:54
My biggest gripe about this new update is the placement of messages. It is now a two step process to read messages. Before it had its own button, but now you have to click on the lightning bolt (whoever chose that to be a button should be shot), and then click on messages. This seems counter intuitive, as messages are by far the most used section, so why make it more cumbersome to get to them? I'm also not impressed by the addition of identifying who created the post. Can this be turned off? If so give us a button. This update may have added a few somewhat desired options, but at the cost of making the interface less intuitive. Fix the messages so I don't have to click on two buttons to get to it and that will be a healthy start to making me more happy with it. I use this app every day, so I feel like I have a right to complain. Fix it and I will give a higher rating.
Issues
by David Birkholz on 2015/01/23 15:22
I use in on my iPad and my phone. When viewing comments from my iPad it does not show comments in order of when they were posted. It groups all comments that the page responds too and then all comments followers post. It is super confusing when trying to respond to people who comment on the page looking for info. It never use to do that before all these bi weekly updates. Please fix. Also I want to be able to tag followers easier. Anyone who likes the page should be able to be tagged in a post. I cannot do that unless I am friends with them on my personal Facebook page. I am not going to add over 800 people to my personal page just so I can tag them. Also I cannot update a header from the iPad for a event. You can only do that on a personal computer. Please address these issues soon. So it is easier to reach my followers!
Glad it exists. Would like to have more capabilities
by Mris417 on 2013/04/09 18:56
I like being able to post status & photos, but I agree with some reviewers that when you write a long post on iPhone (don't know if its same for other phones), it is difficult to edit because you need to scroll down. Sometimes when I need to scroll down, it won't let me & as another reviewer mentioned, I need to type blindly. One trick I discovered for scrolling is keeping my finger on the text as if I was going to select text to cut/copy/paste & then let go where I want to continue typing. But then again, I'm still typing blindly. Frustrating! I, too, would like to post from my Pages onto my personal FB page. I would also like to comment/endorse on other pages as my business, but I can't figure out how to do it via iPhone. I could only do it when I am in Pages on my computer. :(
A good start
by Bloodhound1974 on 2012/12/06 07:58
Pages is a good start for Facebook users with a business page. I have had multiple versions and am happy to see the Facebook folks taking it more seriously. I wish it loaded faster, and offered more features on the mobile app to compliment what you can do from a PC/Mac. The graphs are interesting, but they look like something you can click on to get more detailed information, but not the case. The information collected is somewhat valuable, but lower level sourcing of the insights info would be more interesting for my small business. Also, I want more control over posting and sharing links as my business to my page. Most of the time these links default to my personal Facebook identity, from which I can't then promote within the app. They have some growth, but the platform is there. Lets hope they develop it further.
MIssing Essential Features
by darmok on 2016/02/12 14:39
Pros • Respond to Admin Messages • Basic Picture Uploads Cons • No Page Note creation or editing • No app extension to allow posting links or content from other apps. iOS FB Share does not allow posts to Groups or Pages, only profile. • No Picture Album management (e.g. description editing) I work in the non-profit sector. There are many grassroots groups that don't have the resources or skills at the early stages to manage a web site. I encouraged many to use FB Pages instead so they could leverage what they already know about maintaining the personal profile and use that to manage their organization Page profile. Especially since you don't need a FB account to view content. I'd like them to leverage FB Pages to blog and to leverage the power of RSS feeds. However, many of us are on the road and only use/afford tablets or smart phones. It would be a great help to those who have trouble setting up a browser to desktop mode, to be able to manage their FB Page Notes and Picture Albums. Both could serve as powerful communications channels for grassroots orgs while in their infancy. Moxtra and Trello both get the importance of collaboration in content creation. It's sad that Facebook loose this market when it had the idea so long ago. It's the next big thing and could make a great difference for all the people out there trying to make the world better.
Superb ^_^ !!!!!!!!!!
by RustiiAqua on 2012/12/30 18:12
This app is great... ^_^ it really captures a large majority of those needs one has when managing a page... It makes it really easy to share statuses, pictures videos etc easily directly to the page and place them into its respective album or grouping...this app seem much easier to me than other page managing apps and will definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for such an application ^_^ most marvelously I particularly love the speed of providing notifications and likes on the page etc... ^_^ However reason being for not giving not giving 5 stars, honestly it's minor but should be noted the unfortunate inability to tag... I kind of do a lot of tagging so it's issue for me not one that can't be resolved otherwise but it still is until further notice ^_^
Needs a lot of work
by Breanna Ellis on 2013/05/30 06:05
I'm a very positive and lenient person when it comes to reviews. However, I sent a message to the help link that was provided 2 weeks ago and still haven't heard back. At the time it was one issue, but after using the app more I found other frustrations. I can't edit photos, such as move them to a different album. Also, I don't want to have to share my page every time I want to invite someone to like the page. I hope in the future I can invite friends to my page on a consistent basis verses every now and then it allows me to. I wish I could edit my page itself like the "about me" portion of a profile page, but more geared towards the page's purpose. When I initially made the page there was a chance for me to add that portion in, but now I can't figure out on my iPhone 5 with full service and a great wifi signal how to edit it on pages, fb app or safari. Blaaaa. I hope this can be improved or explained in the help page.
Too little functionality
by Exavior on 2013/09/24 06:14
As a business owner managing my company page, I need to schedule posts and batches of images for release at appropriate times. This app has very little functionality to offer. I feel better off trying to use the Facebook website on my iPhone in desktop mode (as mobile mode has crippled functionality much like this app) Ask page owners what functionality they need to successfully manage a page from a mobile device, and set that as your success metric. This app clearly does not meet our needs. After many updates this app is still feature starved. I still can not schedule a post with a picture. I can post a picture or schedule a post, but not both. And I still can not browse my company page's feed to see updates by the community of pages my page has liked. FIX IT!!!!!!!! Or at least fix you POS mobile site to match the desktop site functionality. Responsive? Honestly your lack of updates to address the most basic feature requests an glaring issues makes me wish there were a rating option less than one star. The app alone has not failed. By neglecting to update it you have failed. The whole point of apps is to offer MORE FUNCTIONALITY than a mobile site can, and you have somehow found a way to offer less functionality than you lackluster mobile site. You should be ashamed.
One step forward, two back
by Mdjlevy on 2013/01/07 00:15
I think its a very good idea to make a separate app specifically to handle tasks associated with the pages in facebook. That said, this App should be a standalone app meaning: All features available on a computer should be available on this app, and things that are improved upon should not be removed as more updates come out. - I cannot update my cover photo (Why can't this be an option on all posted photos or an option to add to an album) - I cannot create photo albums anymore (if so not easy to find) and the mass upload feature (ability to select group of photos and place in a album) is no longer available or not easy to find. - Cannot share posts from the page on other peoples or more importantly on my own facebook wall. I run a detailing business that relies heavily on facebook advertising, and PICTURES. I have lost a lot of flexibility to work from my iPad. Overall, good potential. However, when you make an update make sure that you are not making other features worse as you are improving other areas. If these things are fixed I jump to 4 stars, and if the app becomes more of a page manager as opposed to a page viewer which is what it is now (I even prefer the interface in the regular facebook app to the pages app) then easy 5 stars
Works well but... Why no events?
by bigswell on 2012/12/03 00:56
This app is pretty handy. It is definitely easier and more efficient to use Facebook's Pages app to upload photos, post a status, and respond to interaction on your Facebook page, then it is to navigate the Facebook app for that purpose. For one thing, use Pages and you won't get time sucked by personal chatter and/or the Newsfeed. I have been able to use the Pages app to post photos, status updates, and respond to messages, comments and posts from others on our page. I don't really have the need to switch between various pages, but it does allow you to do that if you have multiple ventures you are promoting on Facebook. I have not found a way to post an event on this app. To me, this seems like a major omission, and one that demotes the app couple of stars. When I started using Pages, it would give me a handy counter on the app's icon to let me know when I had interactions to respond to. It seems to have stopped working.?.. So, a few bugs to work out, but if you spend any time at all updating a Facebook page and long to untether yourself from your desktop computer, this might offer you some freedom. Incidentally, it seems odd that this app and Apple's own page layout app have the same name.
Good. But it could be better.
by Zomenomie on 2013/01/16 07:20
I like the app for what it provided, but it could provide more, and there's really no reason it shouldn't. This is coming from someone who has dabbled in design and programming. I'm on an iPhone 4S, 32GB. iOS 6.0.1 For starters, having to "login" every time you open the app (unless you're checking it every few minutes). Also, I'd like to be able to check my feed and see feed posts from other pages that I've liked through my page. I'd also like to be able to search for, like, and comment on other pages. The standard Facebook app allows one to do this, so there's no reason it shouldn't be available on this one. Managing admins wouldn't be a bad feature either. Being able to add and remove them at any time. As for now, these are the only flaws I can see. Everything else seems to run perfectly. Statuses and photos upload just fine. I can like and reply to comments with no issues at all. My suggestion to you guys would be to just take the regular Facebook app, and build this one from that one. Login and features work just the same, but it logs you into your pages instead. I'm posting this with best intentions. I know how important product feedback is, and I hope it helps you guys! Thank you! ~Z~
Not easy to use.
by MrHappy4Life on 2013/02/07 14:56
For one, I hate that I can't just use the real Facebook app to switch to act as my page on the iPad and start searching and liking other people's pages. That said, it's also not an option for this app. You can not look at Facebook from this app, you can only manage things on your page. I also have found a bug that when you have it sideways and want to write a long story, since sideways has the large keyboard to type more, it does not make a larger area to see what you are typing or have the ability to scroll down. I had to type the last half of my post totally not seeing what I was typing. I totally hate this app and think they should improve the real Facebook app so it has the ability to post as your page from it. But since they are all about making money from you buying their ads to promote your page, don't think they will.

Can't post to the album
by erinpadow on 2016/05/30 21:51
The latest update has taken the ability to post photo albums. There is no option for albums anymore. If you post more than a few pictures they show up on the wall. How annoying!
Not good

Invasive
by HisLady77 on 2016/05/30 00:51
I think that FB is become too invasive! Why all the apps? Why can't the messages just come to my regular messenger app???
Hiding/unhiding comments
by Firefly in the Sky on 2016/05/29 14:06
Update after update, and you still haven't addressed this: When managing comments, this app lets you delete or ban a user, but doesn't let you hide (or unhide) comments. This is a huge missing feature. I shouldn't have to go to a desktop machine to be able to do this. What's the point of this app if you're not able to do the same things as when you're on a computer?!
Notifications in main FB app are annoying
by Amiantos on 2016/05/28 18:12
It is incredibly frustrating that I still get Pages notifications in the main FB app even though I have this app installed. It's just infuriating. Every day I get a bunch of FB notifications that do not belong in the main app. Please stop.
What's the problem
by Lovememaybe on 2016/05/28 15:50
This app has been working good but now all of a sudden it's not working. You try to use it and it keeps going out. Please fix this as I have two different businesses that I run and this has been helpful won getting my work out there. FIX IT!!
Terrible.
by Frankiebonez on 2016/05/28 11:43
It just keeps getting worse. Now the notifications go to my regular FB page, no longer on the 'Pages' page that I manage, the app on my phone shows no notifications, just the regular app for my personal page. It's very annoying and I can't stop it. Tagging is also an issue.
Doesn't work
by michaeka on 2016/05/28 00:01
This app use to be great. I could manage my photography page no issues. Now NOTHING in this app works. I can't event publish a video to my page. FB you need some serious work on this app!!!! Or come out with a business manager app. Something, this is total junk!!!!
App does not recognize correct password
by Mainstreetwashingto on 2016/05/27 00:44
I manage a Facebook page for a business. I'm trying to set up my business page via my cell phone with the Facebook app and pages app. But neither will recognize the password I know to be correct because it is a password that I have confirmed is the one I sign into my desktop to(sat with my phone and desktop side-by-side and signed into the both simultaneously my desktop signed in my mobile did not.) I even tried to go into Safari and sign into Facebook using the credentials I know are correct as I have them written down and have confirmed they are the same as the ones are used on my desktop but still would not work. I have found several articles about this type of problem but no solution. There was an owner of this account previous to me and it was deleted but he is no longer employed by the party that hired me. I wonder if this part of the problem because when I send a password recovery through my computer I get all the information when I send a password request through the phone it is sent it to information I do not recognize. The phone number I don't recognize i have the option to send it to my email and select it but when the code comes Facebook reports an error and then nothing happens.I'm writing this review mainly because I cannot find a person to talk to about this issue and I need it solved. I understand app glitches the fact that I cannot find a phone number to talk to a live person about this is crazy. You all need to have a number to call to report issues so you know what to correct and to help your customers even if they're free customers. If could get this resolved I would be a paying customer because I would pay for advertising for my business. Please send me a private message to help me resolve this issue issue. Thank you.
Why?
by Fedupwithpagemanager on 2016/05/26 23:59
Why make things so difficult?
App not working at all!!! 😡
by Sweetgingercake on 2016/05/26 17:22
I have an iPhone 6S. I have had this app on my phone for nearly a year and HAVE used it but today it tells me I don't have an Internet connection. Yet, here I am writing a review...using my internet connection. My first attempt to write a review, I was given an error that read I could only write a review if I owned the app or downloaded and installed it myself. Seriously?! My phone did not come with the app pre installed so I obviously installed it myself!! I had to remove and reinstall it for it to allow me to write this.. AND it still doesn't work. Grrrr! 😡

Copy paste
by H. The EMT on 2016/05/25 20:46
I really need to copy paste and this app won't allow it!!! I run a community page where people PM us personal messages that that want to ask the group but cannot put their names to. (They could be discriminated against and/or fired if their identity was known.) With out the ability to paste these in the app I HAVE to use a computer to do it. I work on an ambulance for 12-18 hour shifts..... How often do you think I am able to get to a computer that I can go on FB with.......?!?!
Complete crap
by Blooming lawn on 2016/05/25 01:48
No search features, can't see people your business follows, news feed in some random mess in order they think you want to see it. just nothing but a wish list of things it needs. Do not waste you time.
Getting worst with each upgrade

New Update
by Usmcss on 2016/05/24 20:14
Why isn't there a way for page admins to see the news feed of recent stories from other pages that they’ve Liked as their page from a mobile device? And why can't I Like another Page as my Page? I can do it on my laptop! And why can't I search for another Page from the app? It just doesn't make sense!!! Would be 5 Stars if it had those things.
Poor insights
by Freemarkit on 2016/05/24 18:05
I'd like more data, but this app fare more LIMITED than the website. We need a Google Analytics of sorts for more robust reporting tools.
Lacking key feature
by Brimcd10 on 2016/05/23 11:39
There is no way to navigate to other pages that your Facebook page likes in order to comment or like posts from those other pages as your page. Likewise the regular Facebook app does not allow you to like or comment as your Facebook page, only your regular Facebook account. Therefore it is still necessary to logon to A regular computer to use these key features.
Faulty Notifications
by Ajanell89 on 2016/05/22 16:13
I have only just recently started to use this app after creating a page for my small Pet Sitting business. So far the only issue I have is that the notifications don't work properly. You get the initial notification for a message, like, or comment. Then a few minutes later you get the same notification for the same message, like, or comment that you've either already seen and/or responded to. It's really disappointing to not have a great and easy app for your Facebook page, especially when this is about the easiest way to stay in contact with my clients and potential new clients as well.
iPhone 6+

Nope.

It won't even download. Zero stars.

Does not work with iPhone 6 S plus
by stormbennett on 2016/05/19 13:55
Bought this bigger phone specifically because I have tons of clients that I do social media for. (And I wanted to do it on a bigger screen). And this app does not work on this phone. It does work on iPhone 5. But very disappointing that it doesn't work for iPhone 6s+. And nobody says anything on any review boards or even Facebook about the situation. I know that it's just not my phone because several of my employees and friends can't access their information from this app either on the specific phone. So my very first review ever deserves this one. I'm sure that they will come up with an update but my staff and I use these phones and it doesn't work at all. Even Facebook Ads app doesn't work. But that's another review at a later time. Have a good day everybody.
Can't paste. Useless app
by JoshTorresDJ on 2016/05/18 13:43
Can't paste links of things I want to share. Waste of time and space this app. Do not get.
So many problems lately.
by AlliCrow on 2016/05/17 01:17
I can't upload 10 second videos. Am wifi connected and have reinstalled app. Video file is small so it shouldn't be a problem. Can no longer share to page from profile to my most popular page. So many glitches.
Slow notifications and frustrating
by 0arcadian0 on 2016/05/16 22:56
Some of the notifications are slow to arrive when messages from users. It would be nice to NOT have to toggle between FB apps but think it's just best to stay with the original FB app.
"Scheduled" posts don't post

Although I can schedule posts, they aren't posting any more so I have to hit the "post now" button.

Poll
by KRB1965 on 2016/05/13 22:39
I think they should also have a poll option on this page app. I would like to be able to ask my customers through a poll which products they prefer than others! JMO!
Useful.. Sorta
by Mark Devin on 2016/05/13 18:21
I try to utilize this app a lot more to keep up to date with my music page. The biggest problem I'm having is the Edit Page section. I moved from Tucson AZ to Houston TX and can't even update my city. It's been this way for over 6 months.
Disgusting
by BrightBlaze on 2016/05/13 12:31
Is there really any need that you must make us pay for our post to get anywhere? It's a shameless move considering you get a LOT of ad revenue 24/7. Some page creators would kill to get their post out to the masses but the post reach remains at 17 people because the poster is simply poor and barely makes it by in life. You probably won't listen to any of this review but just please get rid of the boost post option and let people who like the page see posts first no matter what. If they don't like it, they can either unfollow or unlike.
Frustrating
by IndianJess on 2016/05/13 04:52
The only way to describe this app is simply frustrating. The new update has ceased to give me notifications when people reacted to my posts, and when people reacted to posts? That doesn't show in my stats for that post. How do I know that the rest of the stats are real? Yet, the "Boost your posts!" is still there, and effectually block me from even seeing things. Thanks, Facebook, for not allowing me to schedule posts off your app with your update as well! I guess managing on the regular Facebook app and on my laptop are going to be the way I function until this app gets fixed.
Finally -- ability to turn off the sounds
by Scottmbolt on 2016/05/13 01:33
Thank you for giving users the ability to turn off the in-app sounds. They are so annoying. Now the app immediately gets more stars from me.
Fix the messages
by Shabrea74 on 2016/05/12 15:23
Still after multiple updates the message inbox is faulty. Do not get notifications of new messages and the inbox does not refresh unless you completely shut down the app and restart. It affects you response rating because of this
Where is video?
by MrChevyCeleb on 2016/05/12 10:22
This app is decent but I'm baffled that, given Facebook's video focus, there's no way to navigate to all of a page's video in one spot. It makes no sense. In the regular Facebook app it's no problem so this is baffling. Otherwise it's a pretty good app, easy to manage your pages and see quick stats on posts. I do think insights should be deeper. The offering now is so superficial that it's mostly useless.
Sounds off!
by incstar10 on 2016/05/12 04:27
Please let the sound off setting work! I can't stand the constant sounds. It used to work several versions ago but last few updates leave sounds on. Turn it off!
Here we go again, Facebook.
by Dasutein on 2016/05/12 01:13
Facebook, you really want to know why people are rating this as a 1-star app? Simple. LACK OF FEATURES. I've sent in tons of feedback of feature requests and they have yet to be added. I'm surprised this app is even functioning yet it lacks features as a Page Manager would need. Get your act together, Facebook. Quit releasing new updates just to clear out bad ratings. Its obvious. You refuse to acknowledge all feedback as well as addressing bugs that still exists in these weekly updates. Why is the app getting larger? Certainly, you are adding useless code to make the app feel bloated.
It's ok for what it is
by Kyleh6180 on 2016/05/12 00:55
Not very impressed. It still seems buggy. Honestly don't like the updates that just say "bug fixes". I haven't noticed speed improvements or reliability improvements. That always means they have something to hide!!! Remember that.

No ability to hide comments from app
by mareally on 2016/05/11 02:33
As a page manager, one must go log onto a computer to hide comments. This app allows you to delete comments and ban users... Why not hide? This is super inconvenient and I am getting sick and tired of Facebook.

Will not download
by Babybounce54 on 2016/05/08 14:32
The app refuses to download to my phone. I had to uninstall due to constant crashes and would not notify you of comments or messages. Fix this so that we don't look like we are ignoring people!
There's a little mistake
by RahimoSahra on 2016/05/08 10:14
Hi there! There is something that you should know! It is a great app to manage pages! But there's something missing! I can't comment or react as a user! i can only do all that as a page! Please fix that! Thanks Best regards
Sending messages always a problem
by Unicorns and shizz on 2016/05/06 21:13
I love that it's a free way to advertise my business but I always have problems with responding to messages. They never go through or appear unless I shut down and restart the app several times. Very frustrating.
Will not let me use
by lmnickname on 2016/05/05 15:10
I have pages on my iPhone but it will not allow me any access to my business page. I have tried several times to delete the Pages app and then upload it again but i continue to have the same issue, it just says "something went wrong" or "the page you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link...." This is frustrating because I respond to people regarding my business most of the time on my phone.

Why Not Pages and Groups?

Owner Nonna's Cakes
by Di Xxx on 2016/05/02 00:43
Today all of my April postings have disappeared! What's up with that? They are back- thank you. Messages is still a problem, I get them most of the time but not always. When I'm notified on my personal FB page that I have a message on the pages manager, it won't open. Also Am notified when I pick up a new "like" and who that is, but would like to know who It is when one is withdrawn. I would gladly pay a small fee monthly if you stopped all this algorithm crap.
Minimal functionality
by goddessbj on 2016/05/01 16:35
Pages seems to be targeted solely towards getting me to pay for boosting posts. Now it won't even display my last post in the timeline. I'm probably going to dump it and go back to the web interface.

by rnwritr on 2016/04/30 03:19
I had this app until one day it totally disappeared. I've been trying to download it for two days without success. What is wrong?
Like it
by Hogisan on 2016/04/29 18:17
This app has helped us promote our business. It has worked as well as we have. When we keep up with it and post current events and pictures, we have had good response. However when we have been lax and not kept up with the current events of our company there is nothing to keep the interest of people. It has been easy to manage the posts and pictures and monitor the reactions of people responding to our posts. Thanks
Message notifications.
by jazibelle on 2016/04/29 17:56
I like the functionality of this app OK. Being able to get all of the Insights, and the simplicity of the interface is pretty neat. What absolutely does NOT work is the notifications for messages you receive to your business. This means messages can go unread for minutes, or even hours, which in turn can have a serious and negative impact on your response time.
No need to download
by katywfss on 2016/04/29 05:57
It's a horrible app, crashes every few seconds. Impossible to use. I rather post from Facebook not pages manager.
So . . . what's new?
by adklib on 2016/04/28 10:32
Nothing new to note yet the stupid sounds continue. Enough already.
Go live!

This is one of those apps that I have to have on my phone against my will, would at least want it to have the smallest app size possible
Sounds are obnoxious
by MadMan7753 on 2016/04/27 04:55
The 'pop' sounds that were added with one of the recent updates need to go away permanently.
Livestream is great but....
by vivamexico4 on 2016/04/26 23:44
Facebook, you need to not have the live stream video saved on our devices! I have to delete the app just to recover all the space from my hour and a half live stream feed. Fix this somehow. It's really annoying.

App isn't working AT ALL
by This Little Lady on 2016/04/25 01:29
This is terrible. You force me to download this app to manage my pages and I can't even open it. I have messages I need to read and respond to but the app will not function properly. This is causing my respond rate to decrease and lower my ratings. Fix this ASAP
Sounds!
by Kjosy on 2016/04/24 19:42
Turn off the god damned sounds. How difficult is it?? Can't you see people want it to be optional????
No pages feed
by dbritt77 on 2016/04/24 12:20
I use to be able to share and comment as my page on pages that I had liked (my pages feed). But it seems to have disappeared on the mobile app. Please bring it back!

Doesn't give notifications
by Whtusayabtmymama?! on 2016/04/20 17:36
I get messages but either I receive a notice saying I have 10 msgs form the regular FB app (when its 1 new and 9 already read and replied to msgs) or nothing at all. Pretty frustrating.
Needs WORK!!
by Trrrrrrra on 2016/04/20 01:17
Updates make this app close out right after opening.. Like the App just needs LOADS of support !
How can I turn off the in-app sounds with the new update?
by Mpakpg on 2016/04/19 22:50
Love this app except for two things. I wish it would take me back to the home screen after I schedule a post. And I can't figure out how to turn off the sounds within the app. I never noticed them before so either a setting got reset or they added this feature. I don't want to hear all the click and pop sounds Also, now it appears that I liked all my own posts?! Weird
Why?
by G_Ranzel on 2016/04/19 20:38
Why not allowed to download?
Can't get messages!!!
by Nitadj35 on 2016/04/19 15:53
This is by far one annoying app. I get notifications every now abs then when they come through that someone has messaged me, but when I go to check messages to respond, they are no where to be found! This is not how a business page app is supposed to work and it needs to be corrected ASAP! Not good for business!

Enough with the bubble click sounds. Remove it!

by Lulupoody on 2016/04/18 21:34
I use this app to run multiple pages, but I do have a problems. Often it says a post has 6 comments, or I'll get a notification stating someone commented, but when I check the photo or status nothing appears. I would also like there to be a separate banner notification setting for when you receive messages so I can improve my message time. In running 10 pages, I cannot always respond to messages in a timely manner unless I am constantly checking the app, which I cannot do with all of my other responsibilities.
Annoying sounds
by StamfordGuy on 2016/04/18 20:04
These chirping sounds are really annoying and cannot be disabled. They occur when I refresh my page among other times. They occurred two releases ago and I was thrilled the last release when they disappeared. This current release they're back. You've earned your 1-star rating.
It's ok but.....
by Mandy Schwarzinger on 2016/04/18 14:32

Annoying
by GaSeminole on 2016/04/18 00:00
Why does this app make sounds now? And why can't I turn them off? And why the heck is it over 100MB?!
Has great potential but is frustrating and needs a lot of work.
by Tolan_Chef on 2016/04/17 19:45
Push notifications don't work for me so this app is useless when it comes to helping your response time to messages. Also sometimes post images don't display in the app. I will continue to use it in the hope that it improves because it could be a great way to monitor the action on your business page. Please improve this app Facebook!
No way to turn off sounds
by jett71 on 2016/04/17 13:19
It's a useful app rendered hopelessly annoying by the constant popping and clicking whenever you interact with it. And there's no way to turn them OFF! It's terrible. 👎🏻
I'd give it a zero if I could

by Gameplayer1346 on 2016/04/16 15:03
Gives me a notification that I have a message, then doesn't let me access. Can't answer customer questions! This has been going on for over a week now. I have to go to my computer to access customer questions. App has stopped working properly even after I updated.
Piss poor update
by Ldy_-Delicate-Rose on 2016/04/16 14:52
I am deleting this app. The sounds are driving me crazy. You removed the ability to turn them off. Bad enough you can't navigate outside of the main page area. Now they make it irritating to use. Not exactly smart are you.
In-app sounds are annoying!!!!
by Jaxhouse28 on 2016/04/16 14:20
On a recent update, in-app sounds were forced on us with no way to disable them. Then on a following update they were gone. Yay! Just updated and yet again THEY'RE BACK!?!?! Please remove the silly things or at least give us the option to disable them!!!
Unacceptable
by AstroDan77 on 2016/04/16 09:23
Pages should work just like my personal page. My page is space industry related and I I don't even have a feed and the ability to share like I do on my personal FB page. Just doesn't make sense and this system is just barely worth it.
What happened?!
by Ineffable2646 on 2016/04/16 06:01
I was preparing a post earlier today and when I went to post it, the pages app had uninstalled itself, and won't recognize the three pages I own I've spent years working on! What in the hell happened? Please fix this ASAP

Awesome Biz Tool
by SpiffyBethy on 2013/08/28 12:33
I use this app daily and love it! I like that you can now see the number of scheduled posts at the top of the page and that it's easier to access. I also love the ability to toggle between the different biz pages you're admin of. Although, there are a few things that could use some tweaking. The ability to tag my friends from my personal page would be very beneficial and also I don't always get notifications of messages which causes me to reply late to inquiries sent through the FB page. Fix please :) I also HATE the way the comments feature has been changed to display the most recent comments first unless they came as a "reply" to one of your comments. In theory, this sounds like a great idea but it bugs the crap out of me. Most people don't click the "reply" button on a comment, they just comment beneath yours and when FB moves it to the top of the comments section it has the potential to mess up the whole conversation (especially when your comment was made as a reply and stays in the appropriate place) and then people get confused by the order things show up in. This is why I stuck with FB instead of moving to Twitter - it drives me crazy. Just put it back the way it was please!! Overall, this is a great app though & despite the few things I don't like its been a valuable tool that I will continue to use.
Average at best...
by BNKKXU on 2013/02/02 18:06
MEH... Before the last update, I liked it much better! Like everyone else, I hate the logging in the way they have it now, it slow, buggy, and crash happy because it has to open your regular Facebook app! I wish it was more independent and actually save the login information like before! Aside from that, this app is VERY basic. You can make posts, check comments on posts you made, see basic info and that's it! What would make this five stars for me is if it were like the normal facebook app, but as you page! For my type of page, I NEED to see my pages' newsfeeds and more in depth antilictics, look at other pages, be able to share other pages, and easily see posts on my pages' timelines! Now you can sort of see the posts made by others on my timeline, you have to click on the notification, but when I wake up in the morning and have 60 notifications it's REALLY hard to go though them and find the ones I want to see. All in all it's an okay app, but very basic and lacks key features for me to run my pages on the road or away from my computer! Though I like to interact with the people that like my pages, so if you are a business using this for promotions only, or a large company etc, then the basic version of the app will work for you, but as a fan page/fledgling small online business, it's too cold and impersonal and I'm starting to get too many likes to do what I want to do with my pages!
Pay to Play
by v2Crystals on 2013/05/02 21:59
No mi gusta! Now fans have to manually select for your Page to be in their timelines / news feed updates. Getting this new task accomplished with strangers is even harder than inviting your friends to be a fan of your Page. It's so difficult to get friends to click one link to become a fan, way less than half of them are fans. Another roadblock to Page traffic is you can only invite friends once in your lifetime to support your Page. Most friends are unaware where the Page invite is posted on their timeline, so the invite remains invisible and unopened. I wrote a timeline Page update and waited a couple of days. Organically, 23 fans were reached. When I payed to play, after a couple of days posting a Page status update, 530 people were reached. How can I trust this number? There's no way of tracking who saw my promoted Page update. If I knew the facts I could improve my brand based on user data. Robots could be clicking on my page link for all we know. Can a home based business like mine pay to play the same game corporations are playing? I think not- and I'm upset people need to opt-in to have a chance at seeing my Page updates. I'm paying the same rates as huge companies are, so sadly, I will have to spend my Facebook ad dollars somewhere else where I have a chance of being visible while gaining brand loyalty, statistics, and reports that won't bankrupt my business.
Facebook Page App
by Snl7 on 2013/07/12 07:37
I love having a separate app just for my page! It makes this so much easier. I like being able to see the people who have liked my app, because I can't do that through my page on Facebook. Also I would like to see a Share link button on the posts I make. It would make it easier to prompt my business in multiple ways through multiple venues without having to copy and paste the status individually over and over again on the multiple venues. It will also allow my fans as well as other pages to share any important statuses on their page as well. And I would also like to see a way to add more photos into my albums like I can when I am on my page through a computer instead of Page App. It would make it easier since I and so many others have smartphones and use our phones to take pictures. By adding this feature it will allow me to upload the pictures straight from my phone to my Page using the Page App where the pictures are already on my phone. Instead of having to download the pictures from our phones to a computer then uploading the pictures to or page. It would eliminate having to go through so many steps just to upload pictures on our page.
Hope this update fixes my problems
by revsjh on 2013/04/12 15:47
So far my biggest complaint with this app is that if I have the regular Facebook app open and the pages app open, going to the regular one bounces me back to this one. it is a little bit of a pain, as I update both my personal and my fan page sometimes multiple times a day (I am a photographer). Glad to have landscape mode. I never work in portrait mode. Hopefully here is good things to come, as I use my iPad more and more. My laptop has become for heavy video editing only. ----------------- Update April 12, 2013 - recent updates work great and fixed my problems. Still supports my first generation ipad. Still my only complaint with the ipad /iphone facebook apps is no sharing. I need to share my posts to my business facebook page on my personal page as not all my friends liked my business page at this time. I also need to share to the groups I belong to and need the post to come from my business page. It is a pain to remember to copy all i typed before hitting post. Also, on the road, i mostly have my ipad not my laptop (laptop allows sharing). It is much easier to use the app than to open a web browser when using mobile devices.
Better, but still needs some help
by jwilson294 on 2013/05/15 14:19
Allowing the separation from the personal page is nice, but the ability to post on the page I manage using my personal page as the narrator would be helpful as well. I currently manage two pages for my business- one for the customers and one I'd like to keep private for my employees. We have created work arounds by inviting all employees as administrators and simply keeping the page unpublished. The option to have a private page would be better. We would prefer the page over the group option since it could allow us some measurability as to what kind of posts out staff care about and how they interact, but keeping it unpublished keeps us from gaining those benefits. Private page pls? Also the complications with the photo albums is a bit of a headache- trying to post things from the cell phone and create cute updates with pictures has become more difficult. We have one element to our business that has updates every other week or so. I would like a comprehensive album of all the activities captured in it for customers to view our past activities, while still offering me the option of easily featuring current activity pictures on the page. This is currently difficult on the page via the cell as well as the computer.
Messaging truly is dismal, notifications are terrible.
by Jetetaquine on 2015/02/16 21:38
When a customer messages us, we get a notification. When we reply, the message takes a very long time to send. The app helpfully tries to inform us of this, with a notification that says "Your message is taking a long time to send." Instead of coding that message, why not fix the issue so messages don't take a long time to send, huh? When the message finally sends and the customer replies, their reply doesn't show up until we back out of the message string, back out of messages, and go back in. Notifications about comments and likes are essentially unusable. The other day we had a troll posting some truly offensive comments, and we'd get a notification that he commented, but clicking the notification does not take us directly to the comment, just to the comments section of the post. So, we have to scroll through hundreds of comments and reply threads, manually looking for offensive material. Please make one notification per comment, and make clicking that notification take us to that specific comment! This would save me hours. As it is, I'm reluctant to continue advertising on Facebook because it isn't worth my time to police the increased comment traffic using this inefficient system.
Needs lots of improvement! ASAP!
by Bakinbaconwithmacon on 2013/10/27 02:22
First off the app is useable, but I have many issues with it. If you try to like sponsor pages as your page, the app instantly crashes, and you don't even like the page anyways. That's junk. Second, you cannot view followers personal pages from the page app, and that's kind of dumb too. If I am getting likes on my page, I would like to be able to check out a couple things about the people who are following rather than switch to the fb app, funnel through my pages and groups section, find the person from there, and proceed onward. 3rd, the message sending as a page is filled with bugs. Very slow, and sometimes it will send 2-3 copies of a message too. 4th from time to time, the insights for the amount of people your posts have reached will just up and vanish. Sometimes for a few hours, other times for a few days! Please update this app to be more compatible with the new iOS versions of iPhone/iPod/iPad and make life a little easier for those of us that use the page on a day to day basis! Too many bugs, glitches, and limitations. At this point, I'd rather just use the computer!
Poor Function, Good Concept
by Preshus30 on 2013/03/19 05:13
This app has too many flaws to list, many of them involve consistent freezing. One of the biggest ones I can see is when you try to go to the sidebar you have to go back through every page or event you've loaded before you can open the sidebar menu, this is really inconvenient! Facebook is set high standards for themselves and for everybody who uses their programs. Facebook needs to reanalyze it and almost completely rebuild it. As much as it would be nice to have to look of Facebook and the functionality something more practical is in order. We are page users and business owners as much as we like to use Facebook personally, something for businesses and other pages can be more cut and dry. Just so we can have the speed and access to the important information we need as page owners to keep up with member demands. Facebook has a good concept going, they just really need to work with it a bit more. I think the more they work with it and the more they tweak it, the better it will become and before long will be the most masterful tool for editing your page, it may even come close to a website editing tool.
Great idea, still needs some work
by Bdasselin on 2014/09/17 18:14
This is a great idea for those of us actually managing a Facebook page, or even better if managing multiple pages. The app is great for checking some things and getting notifications. However, the app doesn't work the same as the web interface. For example, when adding an event, you cannot simply enter the name of a place like through the web interface, you need to "find" a place and turn on location services. This needs to change and it does not work for me at all on the app so I have to use the web. Similar issue with approving posts. The app doesn't let me do this at all, only gives me the option to hide posts from others when they are hidden by default and need to be approved in order to become public. This is something I was really expecting to be able to do with the app. Great idea and still useful as it is, but needs some work before I can give it more than an average rating and I am hoping the changes/fixes come because I really want this app to do everything I need to do to manage pages.
Typical Facebook Garbage
by Holesinozone on 2012/06/10 22:06
From the braindead burnout that brought you the basically unusable Facebook Mobile app comes this hunk of crap. Billed as a way to "manage your Facebook pages on the fly", in reality this app only really allows you to post on your own page's wall as yourself. That's literally it! That's all! You cannot add or edit pictures in your galleries. You cannot view or respond to messages sent to your page. You cannot comment on other pages or even navigate to other Facebook pages with this app. Also in typical Facebook fashion this app is riddled with glitches and bugs. Other peoples posts on your page appear and disappear at random. Notifications are sketchy at best. Sometimes it says you have notifications but won't refresh to allow you to view them. And sometimes the notifications get lost somewhere along the line before they even reach you. Although not nearly as buggy as Facebook Mobile, this app is a profound frustration right in line with much of the half-assed garbage Zuckerberg has crapped out in recent years. If he's at all curious as to why his company's stock is in free fall, maybe he should ask whatever moron programmer he has developing these horrible applications.
Very Limited.
by zZDeadRiseZz on 2012/12/21 23:50
The app itself is jam-packed with bugs in it. There are problems with posting statuses, scheduling them, and even deleting them. The very same goes for uploading images; every time I try to upload something, it always returns with a “Sorry, due to technical difficulties, etc. etc., please try again later.” message. On top of that, the app itself is insanely limited in its amount of features. These restrictions to the user include, but are not limited to the following: adding/editing Admins and their permissions, editing the page description, changing the cover photo of the timeline, it's ability to navigate other pages on Facebook while under the identity of the page, and not being able to create a new page from within the application. Personally, I would rather purchase a desktop and use Facebook on the desktop site to edit my pages. Honestly, this app has really wasted my time and patience. The Facebook mobile app can manage your pages better than the app built specifically to do it! If you can fix these issues, then I would recommend this; otherwise, don't even waste your time downloading it. It's not even worth the memory it consumes.
Great app! Still some limited functionality
by Tarramisu on 2013/02/28 15:26
This app is continually improving! However still has some limited admin functionality. The photo bugs seem to have been ironed out! However the only current admin function i really wish was available would be to be able to share photos. I can only use this functionality from my home base mac. Id be able to do my business from my ios iphone if this was available. i share products from my page daily! Please help & bring this functionality. confident that with all the positive criticism this app will forge forward & continue to make this app better! Just need more behind the scene admin functionality! Also, when responding to a customers comment, i'd like to use the customers name specifically like in Facebook so i know they'll see it! Other than that, this app is amazing & was created for the right reason just not fully there yet! It'll happen!!! :) thanks guys!
This app needs more
by Tmoneyswagg on 2015/09/05 15:58
I really do love this app because it makes it much easier to run my page. This is a much simpler process than through the Facebook app, but what I would like to see is some sort of setting that allows posts to the page to be intermingled with the posts from the page. I run the page for an organization with many members who would love to share pictures with other members of the organization through the club. Unfortunately no one can see the posts to the page. I think it would be amazing if in your next update that feature was added. I know that there are also many others who would love to see some sort of feature like this one included in the next update. Also, I'm not sure if this is a problem with pages or with Facebook, but when people make a post to the page they cannot post more than one picture at a time. It would save a lot of time and page space if there was a way for followers of the page to post more than one picture to the page at a time.
Not pleased with update...
by Uprootedtraveler on 2016/02/13 05:17
Once upon a time a few programmers without any social skills came together to create an app that was just useful enough to be helpful. They included colorful charts that displayed all sorts of vague information about how popular you were. After months of puzzled head scratching, you begin to decipher the strange lines and random numbers. Then suddenly they were gone! Exposed and scared, these poor retched programmers removed all traces of helpfulness from their app. Leaving you to wonder...just how how awesome are you really? Self doubt creeps in and one begins to wonder...was my business really attracting that much traffic to begin with? No! Can't be...you saw the old charts. People came and they loved you! Spending lots and lots of money as they did so...but you didn't share did you? That's it! You didn't need to promote your site at the expense of hundreds of dollars a month. The programmers became angry and took it out on the one feature that they should be expanding! Even now as the dark shadow of informational darkness sets in. Your survival instincts kick in and you begin to develop...ESP.
Non-Social Social Networking App? Why?
by DMDG MUSIC on 2013/10/04 06:58
I have to agree with others, There's nothing this app does in addition to the existing app that makes it worthwhile. The missing functionality that would be required for the page makes it completely unnecessary. The whole point of social networking, especially in the case of a page, is the chance for page managers to interact with fans interested in who they are or their product. In this case the inability to do such a simple thing as mentioning someone in a comment response does a lot to cripple a page manager's ability to make use of this app for successful management of a Facebook page. The features are out there on the desktop browser version, so Facebook obviously knows it's important. Why the missing functionality at such a basic level? The list goes on in regards to missing functionality with this application. My suggestion… Don't waste your time releasing a nap that doesn't provide basic needs when it is already available from a mobile browser, and definitely don't waste your time downloading an app that hasn't fulfilled such simple requirements.
It is supposed to be better than the FB app right?
by darthkat on 2012/07/09 05:26
Too much missing. Neither FB app has share options, you can't tag people in posts (except as "with" and that isn't how I want it) can't tag other pages for cross marketing and other uses, can't edit albums, important for retail info, can't click posts from other people to see their pages or profiles to post on their pages, when I can click a link, it takes me out of the app, so I can't post as my page, it posts as my profile, or when I like, it is as my profile, not my page which is what I want to do. Yes all things can be done on the computer, but many of us spend a lot of time mobile, as I was this weekend and this weekend it was important to share and network, to help generate more likes, and I couldn't so it was pretty useless. For people who take their pages seriously, why give them an even more stripped down second app? I can do a tiny bit more in the FB app, like post as my page. It's just not helpful if all you have is insights, oh and you can't even see the list of who likes your page.
Pretty good
by Loren Molloy on 2014/12/24 15:47
I have said this before and I'm asking again Please allow the app to see and utilize the phones multiple photo folders. I have different folders of pictures for different projects and to have all of them lumped into one folder is horrendous. That one folder causes it to become a nightmare to find one particular photo. Also I should be able to comment as myself personally instead of only being able to comment as the page Im using & tagging others needs work as does the ability to repost something with what you wrote being also reposted. As it is right now if I choose to repost a status from someone else (ex. Quote from Steve Jobs) and I choose to write a caption of my own to be included The person who likes my caption and chooses to repost it Can not (as of right now) have my caption included only the reposted status(example:quote from Steve jobs only) Those things being fixed would be greatly appreciated!
It's a start... I guess.
by alexevansohio on 2012/06/05 03:16
I was really psyched when I saw this app. A separate app to manage Facebook pages. Awesome. The regular Facebook app is appallingly bad for managing pages (displays that you have notifications for the page but you can't see them...), so this must be designed to let you take advantage of all the cool page features that are not available to mobile users. No. Not quite. Notifications are sparse. No way to read or even be aware of messages to your page. Glitchy updating, so it's faster to look at the page in the normal app and guess what the notification is than to wait for the Pages app to update. There's also still no way of accessing different tabs within your page, other than photos and about and a cut down and less helpful version of the Likes page where you can see who's viewing your page, etc. The fact that there is still no mobile support at all for any of the apps that are on Facebook pages is ridiculous and I was really hoping this app would fix it. I hope that the next update addresses some, if not all of the problems above. I shall hold out for that.
Only Somewhat Helpful
by Mawk3 on 2013/09/08 16:18
Perhaps I am missing things, but I think our analytics/notifications could use some work. These are also some complaints I have for the Facebook app itself. We never get notified when someone shares our photos, we cannot see who likes our page unless we're logged in as ourselves in which case I can only see who on MY friends list likes the page. Probably for privacy issues but we would like to offer incentives to those who do like our page being that our business is just starting up. It does help to have this handy on my phone, but I find myself running up to my desktop to fix things. Especially if I made a status update on my phone, but it had a typo in it. An edit post feature would be great to have on the app. If its already there, then ignore this, but I don't know how to fix a typo or other error other than deleting my post and then rewriting/uploading everything all over again just to fix a simple mistake, which is very cumbersome in my opinion. Because of that I use the computer to make posts and only have the app to track things.
Facebook is doomed...
by WarMaster Photos on 2013/01/17 07:03
...for many reasons, a big one being their apps are worthless. They work, I guess, but the amount of things you CAN'T do with them is astounding. You have to login every time you open this one. Insights are limited. You can't view event pages. (That seems pretty important.) You are informed if someone posted on your wall...but you're given no option to click it and see what they said. You can't invite anyone to events (you can with the other FB app...by SEARCHING THEIR NAME). Ugh, I could go on for years. Facebook apps are a ludicrous, insulting joke. I know they're free and Facebook doesn't owe us anything... but the entire experience, at this point, is awful. They've never made the slightest attempt to make their services better or less painful for page owners (meaning half the waking world). Nowadays you have to pay Facebook money to get your posts seen by anybody anyway. It's time to move on, people. Facebook is for grandmas now. In 2013, Google+ and Tumblr are going to take over. By 2014, Facebook will be dead and gone and we'll think of it like the crappy haircut we had in middle school.
Why???
by HeatherJ.H. on 2013/06/02 16:04
I feel like every update takes away functions that were helpful. Why can I not change the cover photo from my ap? The point of having the band page is to have a way to keep our fans engaged and communicate with them. I feel like Facebook makes this as difficult as possible. Even with promoted posts, we get so many comments from fans who say "you were in my town? If I'd known I would have come to the show." This is incredibly frustrating. Why on EARTH do we not have the capability it message our fans? If they "liked" our page, it's obvious that they want to hear from us. And why can we not create events from our fan page and send out to all of our fans? This isn't like harassing an entire friend list from one's profile page. I feel like the band pages are a different thing and should be treated differently. If Facebook does not become more helpful to the band community, it's only a matter of time until someone creates a platform that is, and there will be a mass exodus from Facebook, just as there was from MySpace TO Facebook a few years back.
Needs much more improvement
by Jonathon.P on 2013/04/21 18:03
I love the fact that I can create a page and draw in audiences of like-minded individuals but this app is so limited.. I would like more customizable settings, photo albums, I think it would be a great idea for Facebook to finally add hash tags to further merge together conversation and topics ESPECIALLY WITH PAGES.. It would be nice to have groups, add documents or PDFs for posting bulletins or Events for PAGES, and a more intricate system to draw more people to "Like" your personalized page.. The people at Facebook are really doing a great job innovating the FB app we all know and love today, but why have we forgotten about pages? Here's an idea: How about we put PAGES and the FB app together, just like they tried to have a Camera app and Messaging app separate it has proved to be more effective to keep everything in one place, much more convenient and seamless.. Facebook is a part of everyone's life, serves as a Living Breathing Life Newspaper and we would love the Folks at FB to create that experience seamless through one app !

Half-functional
by Bham-Hill on 2013/01/04 13:27
While it's cool to have a dedicated app to administer pages, the app falls short of even the current features available in the regular facebook. The "positives" of this app are all things one would expect from it, so only the glaring negatives are mentioned here: Status updates are limited/truncated; the app does not allow landscape mode; you cannot add/remove members from groups; you cannot remove likes; you cannot manage your ads; page statistics do not update frequently and are not as detailed as on the computer; you cannot select profile or cover pictures from existing fb albums but at forced to take a new one or upload from phone (thus if you want to switch back to a previous photo via mobile, you have do download it to your phone then re-upload it anew). In all, this falls far short of my expectations from a reputedly crack team of developers at a publicly traded company. Come on guys...y'all aren't in Mark's basement anymore.
Needs improvement
by SavagePatchKids on 2013/06/16 22:01
There is no way to see the newsfeed at all- which you cannot share pictures or posts from. There are very limited benefits of using this application over the regular Facebook manager- even the insights are difficult to find and less thorough now. In fact, I can't think of one feature offhand that the regular FB app doesn't take care of. The only reason I haven't uninstalled it is because I am hoping for some EXTREME updates, especially in pertinence to access to one's own photos, editing & sharing. Also, I would like to able to pin posts to the top of my page and have tagging abilities (especially given the new hashtag capabilities on the desktop site) in both status updates and in photos from the Pages application. Added the scheduled post option to every sharing feature would be great, as well- it only comes up currently when copying and pasting links. I really hope to see these (or even better) upgrades in the future. Thank you for your time.
Glitchy and crappy
by Lorandrea on 2014/08/17 17:43
I'm forced to use this app because I have to manage my business page on the go, but I have to say it's very poorly designed. If you hold your finger down too long – which is a necessity on an iPhone if you're trying to place your cursor accurately – it just posts what you're writing right in the middle of what you're doing. It also doesn't give you the option to edit nine times out of 10 – I have no idea why sometimes the edit option appears but the rest of the time it doesn't, but it's a piece of garbage and they really need to fix it. I don't know if this was designed by Facebook, or if this is an independent app, but it's typical of everything associated with Facebook – poor design, poor execution, lousy interface. Another complaint – you can't cruise other pages in order to share posts. I have to go through all sorts of contortions with my other Facebook app to make that happen. And you don't even want to hear about the problems that thing gives me.
Great App! Only minor downfalls
by Squid_Baby on 2012/09/29 06:25
Love this App, helps me stay on top of all my comments, questions & inquires about my paintings. The only thing I would change is being able to see who is "talking about" my page or the ability to change my pages name, even after it has over 200 "likes". I would also like to be able to see who all my fans are, by clicking the, "total likes". It would also be cool if I could sell my paintings from my page, I'm not sure if that's possible or not, but if it is, I'm unaware of it. Basically, I would like to have more guidance in showing me how to utilize my page better. I feel like there's not enough explanation or guidance provided & feel like I've had to do a lot of trail & error with a lot of the features. I know that sounds like a lot of things need to be improved but overall, I love this app & love being able to access my page so quickly. 🎨
Needs improvement to be a successful media tool
by Chicago Flaneur on 2012/12/29 15:58
As a social-media manager for a luxury hotel and a top U.S. restaurant, I use Facebook Pages daily. While the updates continue to improve the app, Facebook needs to understand that businesses using this app must be have the same functionality as the website. I can't "pin" a post to the top. I can't "edit" a post once it is posted. None of this matters much for my personal page, where the stakes are low and I can wait, but if Facebook wants to continue to be taken seriously as a media platform for businesses large and small, then it simply must make this functionality available in the app--or if not in the app, at least in the tablet version of Facebook on the browser. I currently have three ways to access Facebook on my iPad--browser, Facebook app, Pages app--and none of them allow me to edit or pin posts. And so once again I find myself making a 45-minute trip to my laptop to make a minor but important function on my browser.
Add a feature please!
by midnightrealm on 2014/11/18 22:16
I don't really do reviews. But in this case I will because I use this app a lot. First of all I have no complaints except maybe just adding some features to it. My biggest one would be a way to see photos tagged to you because throughout the day, away from my computer, I would like the ability to repost some of the photos tagged to me. Also the other thing is being able to view photo albums and such. We have no way to get into our pictures unless it's recent on our newsfeed. So that would be nice. Especially as a photographer who wants to use fb as a portfolio. The app is smooth and fast (used on an iPhone 5) if it's slow for you then it's most likely your phone and/or operating system. So please make these things happen. It would be awesome. Looking foreword to Facebook at Work.
Way Too Many Bugs. Wish I Had The Older Version
by OutdoorEyes on 2013/08/22 11:07
Tremendous amount of bugs: 1. Can't view all your new members. 2. Took away the ability to edit your scheduled posts. I use it all the time and now I have to go to my computer to do all my changes. I can't even edit the text if I go to the website on my phone. 3. Now the regular Facebook App doesn't list the newest comments and members. 4. The list more button to see additional posts does not work. You can only see a few posts and older posts can not be viewed. 5. If you promote an older post with the computer, you can not continue to promote it because you can't view it. 6. Can't see my calendar posting, 7. Many of the side buttons don't work, 8. Moved the scheduled listing button to a stupid place on the screen for when you scroll down to view your posts, you now have to scroll all the way up again to view your scheduled posts when before, the button was always on top. 9. Now you have to use the Facebook App, Pages App and your computer to make all the changes and addition, when before you had to rarely use your computer. 10. The statistic numbers for a single post never match on the Facebook App, Pages and the computer. You have to always look at all 3 places to figure out the right statistics. 11. Too many more bugs and I am tired of writing them... This was not an upgrade, it was a downgrade. And why hasn't a reply to a comment been fixed/added. It does not post the reply to the comment.
Works great for my needs
by ItsAllBobbins on 2015/12/15 04:58
I manage about 10 pages for clients and love having an app separate from FB. Maybe I'm unusual in liking that there is now no need to open FB which bores and irritates me in equal measures. I can bypass the bull and go straight to the pages. Love it! A tip -- you need to "allow" notifications first time opening the app after install or the notifications (badges, banners, sounds) won't work. I had to delete and reinstall to figure out there are no iPad "notification" settings for this app, and none within the app itself (that work) it's all set up on install. When the app asks if you want to "allow" notifications, do it. There are no FB help pages addressing this issue, and if there were, there might be a few less negative reviews because the app works great now it's set up right!
If it ever loads...
by Tinadino3677 on 2015/03/30 19:14
I like that i can work with my page separately through this app....but its a pain to use at times. I dont always get notified when i have new notifications. I dont get the sound or the little badge icon even though they are set up that way. When i do get them, it takes forever to update and actually tell me my new notifications and messages. I see the new notification icons but when clicking them the icons go away and nothing is new. Close the app, open, new notifications but they don't load. Takes a few tries. Also, when someone shares one of my posts, it tells me but never shows me. It just sends me back to my page. This app needs a lot of work. Again this app is horrible. Update after update but it doesn't fix old problems and I really don't see any improvements. Still does NOT show me a badge icon for new notifications ONLY for messages. Never for new likes, comments, or shares. I shouldn't have to open an app to get new notifications to show up. Now my problem is the opposite of before!! Now I constantly have a badge notification and there is nothing in the app! I click and open and refresh everything I can and it takes forever for the badge notification to go away and I usually never can tell what I did to remove it! Seriously your guys in tech are a joke. And now the pictures in the messages won't load. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I DONT PAY TO BOOST MY POSTS!! Why would I pay for a service that never works?!
😎Great Group Tool
by Kshalaa on 2013/03/08 21:19
I enjoy the pages feature! Kudos~ I would give 5 stars if the write post side also had the ability to upload other forms of media such as video, photos, etc. I also recommend the ability to like as your own name on Facebook when clicking the page from your linked account. Most importantly, when posting more text- the see more feature takes you to another page to type more but when attempting to tab down after pasting information it is very hard to verify what you have typed or to even correct it as it toggles between done and see more not allowing you to do anything but click back. That needs to be expanded for editing because on the iPhone you can only view it vertically and once the text display pops you can only see so much of the space to type. Please fix that. Thanks!
Useful, but still flaky

Every new revision seems to fix one thing and break two more. There are still a lot of things you can't manage on your page with the app. And when you share photos, you are severely limited as to the length of caption, while no such limitation exists on the web version. Once you manage to get a photo posted, and fans comment on it, you do not have the ability to either "like" or delete comments. The iOS version also lacks the ability to share a video clip, something that should be natural for an app that runs on essentially a video camera. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does still crash a lot. I manage a couple of fan pages for musicians, and I often get frustrated enough to just go to those pages in the regular app (which has plenty of its own quirks and limitations). One of the other frustrating things is that the iPhone and iPod versions behave quite a bit differently. Maybe one of these days, Facebook will actually take these apps seriously and do a thorough rebuild/testing/functionality cycle. Social media is, by nature, a mobile thing. Not giving you full functions in the mobile app shows a lack of understanding that. Also, the most recent update broke the login mechanism so I have to log in every freakin' time I launch the app. Not a useful "feature".
Profiles
by Slyami59 on 2014/05/09 12:16
I do love our dogs "Cause" Page. A few suggestions. If we could tap on other peoples profile picture and be able to go to their page like we can on regular Facebook. And if you could slide in another "Pin to top" selection so we can have 2 things that are important to keep up top. Can there be a follow button to follow someone on causes or community pages? It would be nice to actually see who is a follower on one list. I'd like to be able to tap on someone's profile picture as we can do on personal page to go to their page. Also, hardly anyone sees my page without paying money so more people see it. On a Cause page one would think it would be accessible for everyone to see. And last but not least why can't we "edit" a post after it goes up like on our personal page? At least have the same features as regular personal pages.
Well, it's better than nothing.

It doesn't always send notifications. You can't save your own photos to your phone, something that is helpful when you need to tumblr a post. No zooming in on photos, helpful when a partner posts. When inside app, sometimes it tells you on the page menu if there is a notification, sometimes you have to go to the page to find out. Super annoying when you have four pages to manage. I think it should be more cohesive in actions as the FB app. Lots of stuff that is counter intuitive because it functions differently than said app. Update: Still not enough like original FBook app and now, since the update, it is SLOWER. Ugh. Update II: ok. Just fix this already. Take the original fb app and change it *just enough* to apply to pages. I can't check on posts by others. The photos are all weird and I can't zoom in. It's slow. Sometimes I don't get an update for days. Please. Make it better already.
Needs A LOT of work

It's decent for quick status updates, but I'd really like to be able to: A) Update Page information (about, location, etc) - just make sure it asks for a password before making those changes; B) Tag people and other businesses in posts; C) See my Page's newsfeed (as opposed to my own); D) Queue posts with images for future posts (This issue is particularly frustrating to me because I can queue regular posts and ones with links, but the queuing option disappears when I add an image.); and E) When posting a link, show the preview so I can delete the full URL from the post itself. Basically, I want more full-experience editing and updating options as the normal laptop browser. As a small start-up, we are often on-the-go, and we are usually carrying only our iPhones or iPads with us. It would also be nice to have a pin security option before submitting posts. They're easy enough to delete - if, for example, your child manages to get into your app while using your phone as a racecar - but you could have the option to turn it on or off if you didn't have such potential issues. Finally, why does it have to log in every time I open the app now? It didn't used to do this. What's worse is that now it only loads about 50% of the time. I used to be opposed to third party apps for FB, but now something else might be worth it.
Broken now in my opinion
by PoeDiddley on 2014/06/24 16:54
My biggest gripe about this new update is the placement of messages. It is now a two step process to read messages. Before it had its own button, but now you have to click on the lightning bolt (whoever chose that to be a button should be shot), and then click on messages. This seems counter intuitive, as messages are by far the most used section, so why make it more cumbersome to get to them? I'm also not impressed by the addition of identifying who created the post. Can this be turned off? If so give us a button. This update may have added a few somewhat desired options, but at the cost of making the interface less intuitive. Fix the messages so I don't have to click on two buttons to get to it and that will be a healthy start to making me more happy with it. I use this app every day, so I feel like I have a right to complain. Fix it and I will give a higher rating.
Issues
by David Birkholz on 2015/01/23 15:22
I use in on my iPad and my phone. When viewing comments from my iPad it does not show comments in order of when they were posted. It groups all comments that the page responds too and then all comments followers post. It is super confusing when trying to respond to people who comment on the page looking for info. It never use to do that before all these bi weekly updates. Please fix. Also I want to be able to tag followers easier. Anyone who likes the page should be able to be tagged in a post. I cannot do that unless I am friends with them on my personal Facebook page. I am not going to add over 800 people to my personal page just so I can tag them. Also I cannot update a header from the iPad for a event. You can only do that on a personal computer. Please address these issues soon. So it is easier to reach my followers!
Glad it exists. Would like to have more capabilities
by Mris417 on 2013/04/09 18:56
I like being able to post status & photos, but I agree with some reviewers that when you write a long post on iPhone (don't know if its same for other phones), it is difficult to edit because you need to scroll down. Sometimes when I need to scroll down, it won't let me & as another reviewer mentioned, I need to type blindly. One trick I discovered for scrolling is keeping my finger on the text as if I was going to select text to cut/copy/paste & then let go where I want to continue typing. But then again, I'm still typing blindly. Frustrating! I, too, would like to post from my Pages onto my personal FB page. I would also like to comment/endorse on other pages as my business, but I can't figure out how to do it via iPhone. I could only do it when I am in Pages on my computer. :(
A good start
by Bloodhound1974 on 2012/12/06 07:58
Pages is a good start for Facebook users with a business page. I have had multiple versions and am happy to see the Facebook folks taking it more seriously. I wish it loaded faster, and offered more features on the mobile app to compliment what you can do from a PC/Mac. The graphs are interesting, but they look like something you can click on to get more detailed information, but not the case. The information collected is somewhat valuable, but lower level sourcing of the insights info would be more interesting for my small business. Also, I want more control over posting and sharing links as my business to my page. Most of the time these links default to my personal Facebook identity, from which I can't then promote within the app. They have some growth, but the platform is there. Lets hope they develop it further.
MIssing Essential Features
by darmok on 2016/02/12 14:39
Pros • Respond to Admin Messages • Basic Picture Uploads Cons • No Page Note creation or editing • No app extension to allow posting links or content from other apps. iOS FB Share does not allow posts to Groups or Pages, only profile. • No Picture Album management (e.g. description editing) I work in the non-profit sector. There are many grassroots groups that don't have the resources or skills at the early stages to manage a web site. I encouraged many to use FB Pages instead so they could leverage what they already know about maintaining the personal profile and use that to manage their organization Page profile. Especially since you don't need a FB account to view content. I'd like them to leverage FB Pages to blog and to leverage the power of RSS feeds. However, many of us are on the road and only use/afford tablets or smart phones. It would be a great help to those who have trouble setting up a browser to desktop mode, to be able to manage their FB Page Notes and Picture Albums. Both could serve as powerful communications channels for grassroots orgs while in their infancy. Moxtra and Trello both get the importance of collaboration in content creation. It's sad that Facebook loose this market when it had the idea so long ago. It's the next big thing and could make a great difference for all the people out there trying to make the world better.
Superb ^_^ !!!!!!!!!!
by RustiiAqua on 2012/12/30 18:12
This app is great... ^_^ it really captures a large majority of those needs one has when managing a page... It makes it really easy to share statuses, pictures videos etc easily directly to the page and place them into its respective album or grouping...this app seem much easier to me than other page managing apps and will definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for such an application ^_^ most marvelously I particularly love the speed of providing notifications and likes on the page etc... ^_^ However reason being for not giving not giving 5 stars, honestly it's minor but should be noted the unfortunate inability to tag... I kind of do a lot of tagging so it's issue for me not one that can't be resolved otherwise but it still is until further notice ^_^
Needs a lot of work
by Breanna Ellis on 2013/05/30 06:05
I'm a very positive and lenient person when it comes to reviews. However, I sent a message to the help link that was provided 2 weeks ago and still haven't heard back. At the time it was one issue, but after using the app more I found other frustrations. I can't edit photos, such as move them to a different album. Also, I don't want to have to share my page every time I want to invite someone to like the page. I hope in the future I can invite friends to my page on a consistent basis verses every now and then it allows me to. I wish I could edit my page itself like the "about me" portion of a profile page, but more geared towards the page's purpose. When I initially made the page there was a chance for me to add that portion in, but now I can't figure out on my iPhone 5 with full service and a great wifi signal how to edit it on pages, fb app or safari. Blaaaa. I hope this can be improved or explained in the help page.
Too little functionality
by Exavior on 2013/09/24 06:14
As a business owner managing my company page, I need to schedule posts and batches of images for release at appropriate times. This app has very little functionality to offer. I feel better off trying to use the Facebook website on my iPhone in desktop mode (as mobile mode has crippled functionality much like this app) Ask page owners what functionality they need to successfully manage a page from a mobile device, and set that as your success metric. This app clearly does not meet our needs. After many updates this app is still feature starved. I still can not schedule a post with a picture. I can post a picture or schedule a post, but not both. And I still can not browse my company page's feed to see updates by the community of pages my page has liked. FIX IT!!!!!!!! Or at least fix you POS mobile site to match the desktop site functionality. Responsive? Honestly your lack of updates to address the most basic feature requests an glaring issues makes me wish there were a rating option less than one star. The app alone has not failed. By neglecting to update it you have failed. The whole point of apps is to offer MORE FUNCTIONALITY than a mobile site can, and you have somehow found a way to offer less functionality than you lackluster mobile site. You should be ashamed.
One step forward, two back
by Mdjlevy on 2013/01/07 00:15
I think its a very good idea to make a separate app specifically to handle tasks associated with the pages in facebook. That said, this App should be a standalone app meaning: All features available on a computer should be available on this app, and things that are improved upon should not be removed as more updates come out. - I cannot update my cover photo (Why can't this be an option on all posted photos or an option to add to an album) - I cannot create photo albums anymore (if so not easy to find) and the mass upload feature (ability to select group of photos and place in a album) is no longer available or not easy to find. - Cannot share posts from the page on other peoples or more importantly on my own facebook wall. I run a detailing business that relies heavily on facebook advertising, and PICTURES. I have lost a lot of flexibility to work from my iPad. Overall, good potential. However, when you make an update make sure that you are not making other features worse as you are improving other areas. If these things are fixed I jump to 4 stars, and if the app becomes more of a page manager as opposed to a page viewer which is what it is now (I even prefer the interface in the regular facebook app to the pages app) then easy 5 stars
Works well but... Why no events?
by bigswell on 2012/12/03 00:56
This app is pretty handy. It is definitely easier and more efficient to use Facebook's Pages app to upload photos, post a status, and respond to interaction on your Facebook page, then it is to navigate the Facebook app for that purpose. For one thing, use Pages and you won't get time sucked by personal chatter and/or the Newsfeed. I have been able to use the Pages app to post photos, status updates, and respond to messages, comments and posts from others on our page. I don't really have the need to switch between various pages, but it does allow you to do that if you have multiple ventures you are promoting on Facebook. I have not found a way to post an event on this app. To me, this seems like a major omission, and one that demotes the app couple of stars. When I started using Pages, it would give me a handy counter on the app's icon to let me know when I had interactions to respond to. It seems to have stopped working.?.. So, a few bugs to work out, but if you spend any time at all updating a Facebook page and long to untether yourself from your desktop computer, this might offer you some freedom. Incidentally, it seems odd that this app and Apple's own page layout app have the same name.
Good. But it could be better.
by Zomenomie on 2013/01/16 07:20
I like the app for what it provided, but it could provide more, and there's really no reason it shouldn't. This is coming from someone who has dabbled in design and programming. I'm on an iPhone 4S, 32GB. iOS 6.0.1 For starters, having to "login" every time you open the app (unless you're checking it every few minutes). Also, I'd like to be able to check my feed and see feed posts from other pages that I've liked through my page. I'd also like to be able to search for, like, and comment on other pages. The standard Facebook app allows one to do this, so there's no reason it shouldn't be available on this one. Managing admins wouldn't be a bad feature either. Being able to add and remove them at any time. As for now, these are the only flaws I can see. Everything else seems to run perfectly. Statuses and photos upload just fine. I can like and reply to comments with no issues at all. My suggestion to you guys would be to just take the regular Facebook app, and build this one from that one. Login and features work just the same, but it logs you into your pages instead. I'm posting this with best intentions. I know how important product feedback is, and I hope it helps you guys! Thank you! ~Z~
Not easy to use.
by MrHappy4Life on 2013/02/07 14:56
For one, I hate that I can't just use the real Facebook app to switch to act as my page on the iPad and start searching and liking other people's pages. That said, it's also not an option for this app. You can not look at Facebook from this app, you can only manage things on your page. I also have found a bug that when you have it sideways and want to write a long story, since sideways has the large keyboard to type more, it does not make a larger area to see what you are typing or have the ability to scroll down. I had to type the last half of my post totally not seeing what I was typing. I totally hate this app and think they should improve the real Facebook app so it has the ability to post as your page from it. But since they are all about making money from you buying their ads to promote your page, don't think they will.
