Windows phone 7 Check-in and FIM
Some have called Windows phone 7 the real Facebook phone, due to the tight integration with the social network, but of course there are still many Facebook services the OS does not support.
There are now two apps to the Facebook fanatic out however.
- Display nearby Places based on your phoneâ€™s current Location coordinates (requires use of location services)
- Allows you to check yourself in to a nearby Place with an optional message
- Allows you to optionally tag one or more of your Facebook friends as being with you when you check in
- Displays your Facebook friendsâ€™ recent check-ins
Future updates with more functionality are planned.
Our need for Facebook IM has been answered by mosko.mobi, who have released a Facebook Chat app, FIM. Like Check-in the app is very basic, but the developer also promises more features in later versions.
