Facebook integration

Our KissStickies iPhone application version 1.5 just got approved. It's probably one of the first iPhone apps released that integrates Facebook right into the application. We're excited, I hope our iPhone users are too.

Facebook tells you it take just a couple of lines of code to integrate their Facebook connector. What they don't tell you, once you connect, you have to write code to handle searching fojavascript:void(0)r users, pushing up notifications etc. i.e. there is no free lunch. You still have to write application specific code (lots of it) that talks to Facebook users. Of course, you also have to write a Facebook app that resides on Facebook. All it all it probably took 2-3 weeks elapsed time to get it all working, not the 5 minutes they claim.

Send a Bunny is being approved as I write with the same Facebook integration.
