Version 2.1.1 (Released Oct 23rd, 2011)
- Significantly lowered data load times


New in version 2.1 (Released Oct 19th, 2011)
- Skin downloads data directly from Facebook instead of going through my server, so it's more reliable
- Lowered refresh rate to every 3 min. (Skin checks for new notifications, friend requests, and messages every 1 min)
- Removed large "Facebook" header to conserve screen space
- No longer have to manually configure your Notifications RSS feed, it's automatically done for you when you connect with Facebook
- Notification bubble color is now configurable
- Added optional background to help with text legibility


New in version 2.0
- "Like" posts
- View,post and like comments to posts
- View friend requests
- View latest inbox messages
- Notified of new friend requests, messages, and notifications via "balloon tip" similar to the Facebook website


Known Issues
- Facebook hasn't released the API for their new messaging system, so there are some inconsistencies (any messages received through FB Chat will not show up) between what you will see in the skin and their website. They say it will be released soon, and as soon as it is I will release an update.

- Occasionally after posting a new comment, the skin doesn't show it. If that happens, just close out the comments and reopen. I haven't had any instance when the comment wasn't posted...so don't double post assuming it didn't work the first time.




Requires .

This skin requires application authorization through Facebook. This is completely secure and you can view my privacy statement . The list of permissions required has gotten significantly longer...this is due to the new notifications feature.


***PLEASE DO NOT LOWER THE UPDATE RATE OF THIS SKIN***


If you like this skin...please consider a small donation to help cover my server bandwidth costs. Just click the small, blue gear icon in the upper right corner of the skin.

I think this may have a keylogger, When you install it deleted your saved setting for saved passwords and forms.

Doesnt make any sence on my a skin would do that other then wanting you to type emails and passwords... sounds funny to me.

I'm french canadian and all accents are correct except in the notification page. (earth icon)

I checked some files like dump.txt, cache.txt, dumpn.txt, cachen.txt, dumpm.txt and cachem.txt....

In every files, accent are ok except in the files dumpn.txt and cachen.txt. Those files are for "notification" i think... dumpm.txt and cachem.txt are probably for "message" and i don't understand why accent are ok in "m" files and not in "n" files.

Can you help me please? Thank you

Very interesting. I know a way where you can change the layout of your page on facebook. Installing custom themes. Changes only to you, but is actually pretty cool.
Here is an example of how:

I hope you like the tip. :)
