There’s an official Facebook app for iPhone and iPad and other mobile devices, so why not an official Facebook app for the Mac? While Facebook tries to figure out more ways to extract data and money from users, here’s the unofficial better way to use Facebook on your Mac.
Facebook Made Easy
Facebook users will find a few dozen apps and utilities that claim to make using Facebook easier, or faster, or better, but none work quite like Moment.
If you’ve been keeping a browser window open to just to keep Facebook open, then Moment could easily change your habits for the better, make you more efficient, and reduce facial wrinkles.
First, it lives in the Mac’s Menubar, out of the way, but always available with a click, and complete with notifications.
Second, Moment also gives you quick access tools to post photos, status updates, even videos with a simple drag and drop to the icon in the Menubar.
Let me repeat. Drag and drop. Grab a photo, drag and drop it, and Moment uploads it to Facebook. Videos, too.
Moment does more, too. Including photo galleries, and one-click status updates– all without leaving whatever app you’re using at the time and firing up a browser to login to Facebook.
Moment comes with a few more options that kinda sorta mostly work in the background but enhance the Facebook experience for those who like you.
There’s a built-in Awesomizer which enhances photos you post on Facebook. It also handles uploading videos (any video that Facebook can handle, including YouTube and Vimeo videos) with drag and drop. Even when you post a status update you can select who can see it.
When it gets down to it, Facebook becomes easier to use and more accessible with Moment. It works right from the Mac’s Menubar and doesn’t care much about which app you’re using.
Moment is nicely done and cheap at twice the price. The only problem I’ve run into was a pesky login issue which seems to have been resolved.
