The biggest problem for Facebook’s app platform

No, it’s not Dave McClure. Heheh. Great post Dave that every Facebook app developer should read.

So, smartass Scoble, what is the biggest problem? So many of the apps I try simply don’t work as advertised.

I’ve just removed my Twitter, Pownce, and Jaiku app from Facebook. Why? They simply don’t work.

I just tried the Plazes application. One of the founders of Plazes was here talking about it today. It sounded very exciting. He told me that it’d show me where everyone who is in my Facebook contact list is. Problem is it doesn’t work.

So I remove it.

When these things all start working again, let me know. Until then they really need to test their applications a lot better.

So far I’m very unimpressed by the quality of Facebook apps. Anyone have a good one that actually adds some utility to Facebook? I’d love to add it. But make sure it works before giving me a call. The Kyte.tv app also is great.

One that does work? Google Reader app. It hasn’t failed yet and has earned an “above the fold” place on my Facebook profile.
