Tommi Laukkanen has released a cracking new Facebook client for Maemo 5, MeeGo and Symbian^3 devices. Kasvopus is a simple and clean was of viewing your Facebook news feed instantly on your Nokia handset. You can easily browse through latest status updates, shared news and links. Hit the jump to check out the video demo and to download Kasvopus for your Nokia handset.
Currently there is no support for most of the major features such as notifications, profiles, search and uploading media, however Kasvopus does let you quickly update your status, easily “like” or comment on status updates and open links in the device browser with a single click. Although there are still many features not yet supported, Kasvopus has the potential to become the best Facebook client for Nokia devices.
Kasvopus is a great fluid app to mainly keep up to date with your Facebook friends rather than socialise full on. With this great foundation, more features will hopefully be added in the future to create what could be the best Facebook client on a Nokia device.
Kasvopus is currently in it’s alpha stages and is available for Symbian^3 and the Maemo 5 powered Nokia N900. Meego will soon receive this app and there will be an official port added to the Ovi Store soon too.
To download Kasvopus for your Nokia N900, simply hit our Maemo 5 Apps section and pick up the .deb file from there. To download Kasvopus for you Symbian^3 devices, you will first need to install Qt 4.7.2 and Qt WebKit 4.7.2. Then check out our Symbian^3 Apps section to grab the .sis installation file. The application will not work on Symbian^3 devices unless both Qt 4.7.2 and Qt WebKit 4.7.2 are installed first, which you can download here.
