    Facebook Application Development

    Hello,

    I'm actually quite surprised there aren't already messages on this topic, but has anyone here tried to write an application using the new Facebook API? I've had a thorough read of their documentation and had a play with their code samples and i'm looking forward to playing around with it later when I get time. But does anyone else have any experience / tips they would like to share?

    I haven't looked at it yet, although I plan to. I have one tip, make something that is really cool.

    Cool, whenever you finish it and have it on Facebook let me know, I might check it out.

    Hi,

    Here's my application if anyone is interested I think it's pretty cool!

    You can add your weekend plans to your Facebook profile, whether to make people jealous or to just keep them informed!

    Another App.

    Without wishing to bore you with my talk of Facebook applications you really should have a play it's lots of fun I've just done another one and i'm getting quite good at it now, so please post any questions here if you have them.

    This app lets you add an Amazon stuffiwant list to your profile page for your friends to buy you stuff. It's my birthday coming up in a couple of weeks so good timing eh

    I have written a guide on developing in the facebook api. It's quite simple; as i'm still new to it myself but it covers the storing in and reading from of mysql databases, outputting onto user profiles using fbml, and how to get profile id's:

    The application it was based on is here: http://www.facebook.com/apps/applica...?id=2364447578
