Is there an app to chat on Facebook on iOS ?

I would like to be laptop free


There are two, both from Facebook. It's available in the Messages section of Facebook app, as well as the standalone Facebook Messenger app. The standalone app uses a denser interface, and would be an improvement if you were going to use this heavily, but the section of the complete app isn't much worse.

  • I see, however both don't show who is currently online... – aneuryzm Oct 31 '11 at 19:11
  • @Patrick: They haven't always worked for me in the past, but since I updated to iOS 4 I've got reliable push notifications for messages from Messenger. The Facebook app gives me some push notifications, but I'm not sure which; it's probably based on some settings. – Jeremy Banks Oct 31 '11 at 19:16
  • Push notifications work but they ignore mine and friends online status – aneuryzm Oct 31 '11 at 19:21
  • As of iOS 6 push notifications don't work right in the Facebook app. See this question for details:apple.stackexchange.com/a/89947/27661 – alx9r Apr 27 '13 at 21:43

Also you can use IM+ it's a free app. And if you like to spending some money you can use IM+ Pro.
