For anyone having trouble getting the new Facebook app update to run on an iPad or iPhone, I’ll provide the steps I took to get mine up and running on both devices before I explain what happened. Here’s the deal:
1. Go to your Facebook Account settings in Safari or log in from a desktop browser.
2. Account > Security > Login Approvals (where it says ‘approval is required when logging in from an unrecognized device)
3. Uncheck this setting and save.
You should now be able to login using the new app on either device. If you don’t care about this security setting, leave it alone and you shouldn’t have any more problems until the next time the Facebook developers make a bunch of changes and don’t warn us about the bugs.
If you are the least bit paranoid about your identity and you want the Login Approvals active so that any unrecognized device requires a code, which is a good idea, then do this:
4. Go back into Safari > Facebook > Account > Security > Login Approvals
5. Check the box at the top to activate and save.
6. A little window should pop up for entering a Confirmation Code….
You should get a Confirmation Code via text message for the login approvals, enter it in the window and you’re good to go.
Worked for me on all my devices.
Have you ever had a bunch of photos you wanted to post to Facebook on your iPhone only to get absolutely frustrated going about it one at a time through Facebook itself? It can be quite a pain in the ass. I went searching through the app store and finally found an app that does it all in one stroke, and the app is iLoader.
iLoader by Tektrify is an iPhone app for batch uploading photos and videos to Facebook. In addition to allowing you to select several images at once to upload, it also gives you the option to write captions on each image. When you’re ready to go, you can also choose to post with a comment and actually select any one of your albums to upload to. It sure makes life easier for people like me who don’t want their photos automatically going into the ‘mobile uploads’ album.
I always get excited when I find something that works well and makes my life easier. iLoader is one one of those things. If you have been looking for a way to batch upload photos to your Facebook page, I would definetely recommend checking out iLoader by Tektrify. You can also find it in Apple’s app store, just search for iLoader, and it’s cheap.
