ðWhy sacrifice your privacy or an awesome user experience when you can have both? Meet Swipe, the best Facebook alternative - lightweight, highly customizable, and battery friendly, with a strict âno trackingâ policy to ensure your privacy is secured.It isnât really a secret - the official app is bloated, slow, power hungry, and doesnât have your privacy in mind. Many alternatives have tried, but surely, youâve found most just lack in overall quality. Thatâs why Swipe is your answer - with a robust day/night theming engine, Messages access built-in (Chat Heads included), customizable widget for your notifications and messages, as well as an ad blocker to filter out the noise, youâll find lots to love.ðFACEBOOK & MESSENGER â CHAT HEADS INCLUDEDWhen you can have both for less than 5MB, the decision in 2014 to split the most popular social media app doesnât really make much sense. Switching to Swipe saves you hundreds of MB on your phone, so that you can use the extra space saved for things that matter most.As an added bonus, Swipe comes with Chat Heads too! Keep on chatting away with friends even when youâre using another app.ðBLOCK ADS, PROTECT YOUR PRIVACYNo one likes them, and in Swipe, you donât have to endure them! There are absolutely no advertisements from Swipe, and sponsored content from Facebook can be blocked as well. Thereâs also no tracking in Swipe - your connection is encrypted and any data you share goes directly to Facebookâs servers.ð¨THE BEST DAY/NIGHT THEMING ENGINE EVER!Swipeâs theming engine is next-level. Thereâs just no comparison. While theming isnât new, you can now assign each theme element their own color (you can even put in hex codes). If tinkering isnât for you, we have some beautiful preset ones weâre sure youâll love!You can even change how the app looks and feels â whether tabs are at the top or bottom, titles are centered or left-aligned, card or flat views, and whether to use the classic Floating Action Button or the modern swipe up Bottom Sheet Menu.The icing on the cake is that you can set these separately for both the day and night themes, and themes can switch automatically in the morning and evening.ð´WIDGETS LET NOTIFICATIONS LIVE AT HOMERead your latest notifications and messages right on your home screen, without having to open the app. The widget is automatically updated as you use the app and when notifications are fetched.Swipeâs Widget is just as customizable as the app itself, allowing you to pick just about any color your heart desires â or even make it transparent to let your wallpaper shine through!ðFULL CONTROL OF YOUR NOTIFICATIONSNot only can you receive both notifications from Facebook and Messenger, but you can even set up quiet hours (when notifications shouldnât come through) and filters (items you donât want to be notified about). ð¬DISCREET PHOTO & VIDEO DOWNLOADSDownloading photos and videos in Swipe is not only easy, it is more importantly discreet â without notifying the person or page about the download.ðKEEP PRYING EYES AWAY WITH SECURITY LOCKIt isnât uncommon to hand your phone to a friend or family member to show them a funny video or interesting photo. Keep your Facebook account safe from others by setting up Security Lock and requiring a PIN code or fingerprint to open the app.---There is much, much more that makes Swipe the best Facebook alternative out there, but I think itâs time to give it a spin yourself. Itâs better in every single way. Youâll feel it.ð§For feedback or bugs, feel free to drop by https://reddit.com/r/swipeforfacebook or email us at [email protected]
