This is miles ahead of snapchat, I don't see why it's not more popular

The word on the street is that Facebook tried to buy popular self-destructing messaging app Snapchat. Only after Snapchat refused to be acquired, Facebook decided to clone the app and launch a competitor. They did it in just 12 days. Only one day after launch, Facebook’s Poke app is the #2 free app in the App Store. SnapChat is #8. The message from Facebook is clear: either you’re with us, or we’ll bury you. And fast.

What is the point on this app when you can do all this on the messages app. This is pathetic and stupid no point so don't download it!

Is it facebooks mission to make a new app for every individual feature of the site? What is the point of this when you can do it all in the messages app? Unless you're using this to send dirty photos and only want them visible for a few seconds which lets be honest is exactly what this app is aimed at.

Uninstalled after 30 secs. It only downloaded about 20 friends and seemed all pretty pointless.

Strange concept but good for video messages (1.0)

Poking, text, and even picture messages seem rather pointless to me given that the unique feature of this messaging app is that each message self-destructs after the recipient reads/sees the message. However, I have found it quite useful for sending 'video voicemail-like messages' to people. For those friends who don't always text you back, sending them a video of yourself asking a question is yielding better response rates! Complaints; 1. make the app iPad friendly and 2. remember front camera preference.

Unoriginal and frankly crap! (1.0)

Funny how this app was released just as SnapChat took off! Completely the same concept and I really don't see the idea behind it. Why give me a time limit to view something. Very odd indeed.

I really don't understand the purpose of this app. The app didn't make sense to myself nor my friends. I soon uninstalled.

I tried this app for about 2 minutes and it makes no sense and has very little use. I assumed it was a way to poke friends easily but that doesn't seem like that is the case. Don't waste your time.

Not so bad but why cant we see the poke more than once?? And the timer is quiet useless and annoying! Some improvements to do!

Normally I write lengthy exploratory reviews, but this doesn't even deserve the three lines I've given it. Shite.

Completely pointless. Stole the idea off snapchat but overall I don't see the point in this app. Don't waste your time.

What is the point of this app. Can't see a realistic use for it. Would seem that neither can my friends. Out if 500 Facebook friends, only 2 have the app. Will be deleting after writing this review.

What a waste of developers time at FB HQ!! This was installed and deleted in less than 24 hours. Never seen anything so useless come from Facebook. Get a grip and develop something useful like enhancing the Pages app.

A good little app but only displays a random handful of contacts. The main ones I want to talk to are missing so no need for the app till that's fixed

Poorly conceived, poorly executed waste of time. Quite why they don't just make this, Camera and Pages part of the main app, I don't understand. The fact that half the logo is obscured when the app finishes loading is unforgivable. Do yourself a favour and don't waste your time.

I downloaded this in order to see "a message" that had been sent to me as the Facebook app told me it was waiting for me. The message was actually only a 'poke' that can be achieved in the normal Facebook. The developers should put more effort into making the main app run efficiently rather than following pointless spin-offs. Deleted after around a minute.

From this dev.
