Three better ways to use Facebook on Android tablets

Looking for a better way to use Facebook on your Android tablet? We'll show you three.

If you're an Android Honeycomb tablet owner, you might be a little bit jealous about the official Facebook iPad app that was released a few days ago. There's no reason to feel like a second-class citizen, though. Here are three better ways to use Facebook on your Android tablet:

1. FriendCaster
FriendCaster is an ad-supported app with a lot of features, including support for Pages and Check-Ins. The best part is, it's optimized for Android tablets. The Pro version removes ads and costs $4.99. Both the free and paid versions are available in the Android Market.

2. Friend Me
Friend Me is also ad-supported, but doesn't have quite as many features as FriendCaster. It does however, have a clean and simple interface. It's available in the Android Market and the in-app upgrade costs $2.99.

3. HTML5 Web app
Sharon Vaknin recently discussed how to access Facebook's HTML5 Web app on the iPad . Luckily, Facebook's HTML5 web app works by default on Android tablets; just point your browser to m.facebook.com.
