Manage your social profiles with FB Pages Manager for Windows Phone

FB Pages Manager

Microsoft has continued to update the official Facebook app for Windows Phone, but there's still no convenient way to manage multiple pages that may be tied to an account. This has changed now with FB Pages Manager, which is now available on the Windows Phone Store. This app essentially makes it easy for administrators to manage Facebook pages.

The app is by ImaginationOverflow and was backed by numerous beta testers before being published for the general public to enjoy. As one would imagine, numerous features are included that help make it simple to get information pulled to the Windows Phone, including analytics, notifications, as well as general page management.

The interface is very Facebook-like (get it? Facebook. Like. Bad joke, I know) and fits in nicely with Microsoft's Modern UI. A page status can be updated, deleted and shared, while photos can be uploaded. Messages are synchronised for interacting with fans and / or customers and commenting is fully supported. 

The analytical side of Facebook Page management, known as Insights, can be accessed within FB Pages Manager too. This area provides a detailed analysis on how a page is performing. Whether the administrator is interested in the amount of "likes" the page has accumulated or how much reach you're able to achieve, it's all presented in an attractive interface.

FB Pages Manager

Live Tiles are supported and will alert the user when new notifications have been received. Multiple pages can be pinned should you have more than one Facebook page. Finally, the default Facebook theme or the Windows Phone system theme can be configured to provide a more personalised and unique experience.

You can download FB Pages Manager from the Windows Phone Store for $1.99, as well as the free Lite version. The free edition of the app has advertisements and limitations on some features. Strongly recommended if you're looking to manage your Facebook pages while on the move.

This is the perfect solution for power Facebook users who want to manage their Facebook Pages on a Windows Phone. Someone in the forums was just quipping that he may need to jump platforms as a consequence of being a power Facebook user with no alternative solutions (to his knowledge) existing. Good timing!

kazemYK says:

Why its not free we need it >_

sasukeluffy says:

There is always the lite version for free, but of course you already knew it, right?

RyanAMG says:

But not this time. But of course you already knew it. Right?

It should have a trial if not lite ver.

AngryNil says:

There is a lite version, what are you talking about?

sasukeluffy says:

Yeah.. I guess he's drunk or something ;_:

RyanAMG says:

Nawzil says:

This is not an official app from Facebook.
I think we deserve the money for our hard work in developing this app.

RyanAMG says:

By all means yes but a trial is a little better than a lite ver so the users can get the full features and see if they would like to buy. On the lite is say not available so how do I know if I will like they way part of the app works. In the real world most users will just move on to another app as not every WP user can buy every app they want to test like some of us can. Also your lite ver has ads if you have adds then the app should do more then just post as its from the fan page and in the long run don't most devs make more off ad supported apps anyways?

DVDPT says:

Hi, thanks for the feedback.
Actually on Windows Phone is pretty hard to do money with ads, we are averaging on the other apps like 4$ a day in ad revenue, comparing with some of my android dev friends that are making between 10-200$ its nothing.
I agree when you talk about the lite version not having all the features, but it is a compromise, remember that the app does plenty more than posting like messages, comments, notifications, background updates, etc. The only features not present on the lite (right now) is the insights, pin page and share post. 3 features in about 20 that the app contains is nothing.
In the future we will implement a system that allow user to unlock features via in app purchases or coupon that we will distribute to translators, active users or randomly via our social accounts.
Thanks again ;)

Thanks for your feedback. :)

Josh Harman says:

I'm a little concerned about giving an unknown developer my FB creds, much less multiple FB accounts

DVDPT says:

The authentication is done via Facebook Website, any of your facebook data can't and won't leave the app ;)

Amran Nagal says:

I can't post anything from this app, it suddenly closes automatically.
Shit app.

DVDPT says:

Thanks for the feedback, actually is a know bug discovered by the users (it passed beta testing without an hitch)
An updated is being done and will be submitted tonight ;)

DVDPT says:

Thanks for the review, I've been a windows phone dev for more than 2 years and always wanted one of my apps reviewed  by you guys, thanks a lot ;)

RatPriest says:

I've purchased the app, but it is saying there are no pages linked to my account. Unfortunately, I do have a page linked to my account. As you can imagine, this has not made me happy. Will be contacting the developer.

    Face Book page management is actually needed for everyone individual.FB users always find it dificult to navigate between the pages and there are cases like once the user goes to the previous page and comes back to the same page again, the page gets refreshed and the user has to proceed from first, instead of proceeding from where the user left.I would also like the user to know some good FB apps from windows 8 mobile developer.
