iPh8ne: Facebook on your iPhone

See what your friends are up to on Facebook with iPh8ne.

Look at your Facebook photo albums with iF8ne CNET Networks

You have to hand it to the developer behind iPh8ne, an iPhone-friendly version of Facebook, for (unofficially) calling their app helpful for "stalkers on the go" in their e-mail to us. iPh8ne takes Facebook and optimizes it for the iPhone's narrow screen. You can look at photo albums posted by you or your friends in a familiar iPod-like photo album viewer. You can also hop right to a Google Map of local food or entertainment near your friends, which iPh8ne pulls from their profiles.

The one thing missing is a way to view and interact with use profiles, something you're still able to do by logging into the mobile or full version of Facebook via the iPhone's version of Safari.
