[prMac.com] San Ramon, California - Adrenaline Apps today is pleased to announce the release of v1.0 of its Facebook iPhone app, FavFriends. Designed to enhance the Facebook experience, FavFriends allows users to pick their favorite Facebook friends and family members and get pro-active push notifications whenever they post a new status, photo, link or check-in to a place.
"I didn't like missing out when a friend or family member posted an important status or checked into a place where I happen to be at the same time," said Tom Lee, CEO of AdrenalineApps. "Now Facebook users don't have to scroll through all the posts only to find out they missed an opportunity to post a timely reply or have an opportunity to meet up with a close friend" adds Lee.
FavFriends has an easy-to-use interface where users pick their most important Facebook members from their friends list. When a new status is posted, the pro-active notification takes the user straight to the post where they can respond right away.
"Beta testers love the immediate push notification when a friend checks-in to a place where they are near so chance meetings become reality or they can tell their friend what to order or see and do" said Lee. "FavFriends makes Facebook real-time."
FavFriends takes a different approach of creating "friend clusters" by putting the user in charge. Said Lee, "only you know who your closest friends are, not some algorithm that tries to predict who they should be. You may interact a lot with a co-worker, but you may not want them on your favorites list. Also, why limit the number of people you can have like some apps do."
FavFriends and the Facebook app are a great complement to each other and will enhance the overall Facebook experience.
