Android Facebook App 'Bloo' Updated, Now Free

bloo_143

Bloo, a highly popular Android Facebook application, was recently updated on the Android Market to version 1.4.3. This comes as a welcomed surprise for those who have been following the development of Bloo.  Not too long ago the future of the application was in question due to restrictions placed on Bloo developer Dimitris Couchell that would have forced a discontinuation of future development.

There has been a combination of things that occurred that have incredibly delayed the release of 1.4. To start of I have started to work on a new project (a full time job) information which I cannot disclose as I am on a NDA agreement. At first, I was not allowed to publish further updates or work on Bloo and thus I was unable to continue working on it. – Dimitris Couchell

As of now, the restrictions have lifted and the updates keep coming.  Not only is the app now free, but Bloo enjoys download traffic that sits in the 10,000 – 50,000 range.  The current iteration supports photo tagging, and notification alert style options.  Also included, is the ability to view your wall, check out the latest in the news feed, view profiles and pictures, and calendar sync.  Version 1.4.4 is promised to be coming soon with extra “surprises” the user will love.
