Update

InTouch

This facebook desktop software was suggested by one of our readers and we tried it and thought it deserved a spot on this list. So, presenting InTouch, the classiest looking app for facebook. It has a black interface with a box to update the status and the stream shown below it.

Photos and links can be shared but they have only icons without any tooltips. Makes it a little confusing. The app also cant seem to upload photos into existing albums, it prefers to make new ones. Overall a very good app for facebook.
