FriendCaster for Facebook - set custom list as default?

Hi, there,

With all the *wonderful* changes TPTB at FB have made lately (mainly the fact that FB now decides which posts are "important" enough to put in my NewsFeed), I've created a custom list and chosen to subscribe to "All updates". I love that FriendCaster remembers where I left off when reading updates in the main NewsFeed, but is there a way to set my custom list as the default view and have FriendCaster remember my location in that list? The FB NewsFeed is pretty useless for me....

 

Thanks!!! LOVE THIS APP!

Glad to hear that you're enjoying FriendCaster.  The new listing functionality that is now available on Facebook has not yet been implemented into the Facebook API that we use to pass data to/from FriendCaster.  Should Facebook make this functionality available, it's certainly something we'd love to be able to add to FriendCaster.

When creating new Status Updates, posting pictures and soforth, by default the posting permissions are set to Friends of Friends.  Please consider adding an option to be able to customize the default posting permissions so we don't have to change the permissions every time we want post something, if we don't want Friends of Friends to be the default.  I personally only make posts to specific lists of users, and I would like to set those lists as the default for new items I post.  Adding this feature should not require the use of Facebook's API, because all you would need to do is read the groups from Facebook (which the app can already do) and store default preferences locally.  Please consider adding this feature.
