  • Why won’t the filter for time of day work?

    I was really excited to see this feature, but the filter doesn’t do anything.
  • Useful App But Glitchy Now

    It keeps telling me I’ve got many more notifications than it turns out I do. FB is doing the same thing too, now. Other than that, which started after the last iOS upgrade, I find the app to be very useful & informative. Once the notification issue is resolved my rating will go up.
  • Terrible!

    Doesn’t refresh well, takes all the actual events I host from my newsfeed to another app. But because it doesn’t refresh, it means I end up only seeing comments for events I AM HOSTING in my feed and if I don’t click it’s effectively lost. It also doesn’t help me actually find events I want to go to. Real step down separating the events from my actual use.
  • Crashes when you try to look at past events

    I like this app for the most part (especially when I want to take a break from FB) but the latest update crashes whenever I try to look at my past events. Just completely shuts down and I have no ability to see what I did two months ago. Please fix!!!
  • No support for saved places

    This app uses "starred" places while the Facebook app used "saved" places making both features equally useless!

    The notifications are on but won’t load. Not helpful if you can’t get event updates. Worked fine up until this week. Losing patience with this issue and may be deleting on 11/30/18 if issues isn’t fixed!

    New notification indicator keeps appearing although there’s nothing new.
  • Horribile UI

    For a company this big it is lame to see such poor UI and unattracting UX therefore I don’t know why this app still exists giving the fact that there are sooo many apps that to the same and succed to deliver.
  • Hard to find MY events.

    It has become increasingly difficult to find the Facebook events that I’ve been invited to and agreed to attend. I have an event with friends today to which I’ve marked myself as “going” but it shows nowhere on the Today section of the home tab in the app. It happens to show up in recents and if I search, but that’s completely counterintuitive. Exploring is great, but if I can’t find what I’m doing with my people this app has failed its primary purpose.
  • Needs some work

    This app fails on a lot of levels. Let me start my saying that the ONLY thing keeping me on FB is events. And I prefer not to get sucked into scrolling through news feed. So,I was hoping for something that would allow me to organize event invites from Facebook in one place without using the FB app, and for that task this app fails miserably. If you’re looking for something that allows you to search events in your area, this is your jam. But in my case, the only way to see upcoming events from FB that I am hosting/attending/invited to is to scroll painfully through the calendar (that doesn’t even mark events I’m attending with a dot). So essentially, unless I know it’s there and go looking, I’m not likely to find it. In addition, when I’m searching events in my area, there are not good ways to remove events I’m not interested in or to see the ones I would like to attend in one spot. What I’d really like is a place that lists only events I’m invited to/attending/hosting and ones I have starred as interested in. I’d also like to be able to easily create an event and invite friends - without logging into the whole Facebook app. This app is a good concept but needs more work.
