Facebook bad data received error

There is a problem with Facebook's API that affects our application.
Hopefully they will fix it soon. We are working on a way to bypass it. Read edit.

We have discovered a way to bypass it and just released an update on Google Play.
You can get the fixed apk here if the update doesn't show up on your device yet:

Technical information:
Facebook started to block most requests that include the word 'Android' in the UserAgent field.
Since the Facebook for Android SDK itself sets this field I'm sure this is a bug they will fix soon but the upcoming update will resolve it anyway.

Please be more patience with this kind of errors which are clearly not under our control (we got some really shameful emails).

Android Pro Widgets 1.2.7

Just released an update to our apps.

It includes some display changes, new app icons, better integration with ICS and Honeycomb and many small fixes and improvements.

We had to drop Dolphin HD support as they no longer allow it but we already contacted them and hopefully a better APW widget for Dolphin HD will be available in the future.

Please stop sending emails requesting a new Email widget. We already contacted the developers of the most popular Email applications to gather the information we need. Unfortunately most of these apps have limited APIs (the Gmail and Email apps does not provide any API at all) and I don't have too much time to work on it at the moment so it won't be available soon.

RIP green smiley.
