(Gawkwire) – Locomo Labs, a mobile application development company focusing exclusively on the Android platform, announces the release of “Friend Me,” a Facebook application designed specifically to work with the Android tablet and Honeycomb, the newest version of the Android operating system. Friend Me is a free application with no advertising, available for download now from Android Market.
Galaxy users have long complained about the shortage of applications designed for tablets that run Google’s new Android operating system. Many apps designed for Android phones also work on tablets, but they don’t always run well or take full advantage of the tablet’s larger screen.“
There was a clear need for a Facebook app that makes good use of the tablet’s size and features,” commented application developer and Locomo Labs founder, Chris Stewart. “I build apps that respond to what the market wants, but I’m also a consumer. Just like everybody else, I want apps that do what they promise, do it well, and without a lot of aggravation.”
Friend Me includes many of the Facebook features most-requested by the Android user and development community. New features will continue to roll out in the coming weeks.
