    “Incredibly Useful” ???
    Come on Noupe, there is no way that is even remotely true about 50% of the apps you’ve posted.

    • Brett, 22 April 2010

      I think that in the utilities section there needs to be another one. it’s called GameScrubber, and it’s awesome, lets you get the edge on all your games like, yoville, cafe world, farmville and all kinds of other facebook games, it pulls all the links out of your feed that you would otherwise have to go searching for on all of your friends profiles, plus, it follows all of facebooks rules, so there is no chance that it will get shut down. Check it out, im sure that it will help you like it has all of my friends and relatives

  • great article and helpful list for connectivity, thanks a lot..

  • Sir_sid, 23 April 2009

    That was by far one of the most useless lists I have ever read. Even the best apps on there were only marginally useful. SuperPoke? Really?? Arnt the normal pokes annoying enough as is. Stop spamming digg

  • SuperCars, 23 April 2009

    Well I didn’t know there are useful tools like that in facebook because so all I see my friends posting on the wall is a bunch of test.

  • Glamour Shots, 23 April 2009

    well I guess maybe some people will find this useful, but for me I don’t

  • frederic sidler, 24 April 2009

    The one we developped is not as popular as the one you mentionned, but people love it, because you can get your events or friends birthday directly in your Calendar application, like iCal, Outlook, Google Calendar, etc.

    It is simply called fbcal and is accessible here http://www.fbcal.com or http://www.fbcalendar.com

    I hope you love it too.

  • Patrice, 24 April 2009

    You should also try our friends5. It Allows you to publish fun top5s of friends (craziest friends, most likely to get married in less than 2 year, most likely to be elected president…).
    And you can of course create your own category.

    It does induce A LOT of conversations in the newstream :)

    You can try it here : http://apps.facebook.com/friends-five

  • Pedro, 24 April 2009

    What about ReverbNation… its a great music app on its own or with facebook. my friends work there so this is my shameless plug for the day!!!

  • Joe, 24 April 2009

    How about 25 Random Thongs?

    http://apps.facebook.com/twentyfivethongs/

  • DeKoning, 24 April 2009

    Yeah, some of these are useful but most are pretty lame.

  • Tridib Ghosh, 24 April 2009

    Not at all a good collection. Sorry Noupe disheartened this time.:-(

  • alex, 25 April 2009

    I can believe I even looked at this post. Better connectivity though an app that uses a photoshop filter to generate a “Sketch” from my profile picture?

    Thanks for another incredibly helpful list post.

  • Donar, 25 April 2009

    Lovely list!

  • w3planting, 26 April 2009

    i like the socail part of the apps for promoting and fiding new blogs and making new like minded friends

  • Hans Quintona, 07 June 2010

    Properly, that is my first see for a website! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new initiative inside a community within the same niche. Your site provided us valuable details to perform on. You’ve accomplished a marvellous job!

  • INGAAS :, 01 November 2010

    college books specially those that are technical related are a bit epxensive to buy .

  • Stuart Aybar, 07 November 2010

    Why is it that the article reminds me of another same the one which I just read some place else?

  • sumatarasi, 28 April 2011

    I need a free app for my page that i can use to categorize photos. like the sets on flickr. anyone knows sth like this?

  • james1965, 25 May 2011

    I have just starting using an app called either Artizen or Fhotoroom not 100% sure, but it is amazing. It’s like Picasa but blows it away and allows me to not only share my stuff on facebook, but flickr, tumblr, and twitter with a single click. It is definitely 100% awesomeness…

  • Betsy Rogers, 15 June 2011

    I did find this list useful, but for another reason. Somehow I’ve got a few apps on my account that I didn’t remember selecting. Some of the app’s pages don’t describe themselves very well, or if you look for a description you might inadvertently wind up adding them to your account (probably what happened in my case). So this list helped me decide which apps to get rid of. :) Thanks.

  • Nik, 15 July 2012

    I don’t know whether this is a good or a bad thing for a website but the design of the website is ‘Fucking Amazing!’ its just a pure Beauty, everything from Colors, Layout, Design, Theme, Detailing etc. everything is near Perfect! For minutes I was only going up and down the page to see and admire the design and I almost forgot the ‘Content’ of this page (That Content was what that brought me here to this page). Sorry that my comment was not related to the content but I had to Appreciate the design somehow..
