    Do I need an Facebook-API and Twitter-API if I only want to show the Facebook-Timeline / Twitter-Account in the App?

  • Thomas W.

    We recommend that all apps that use the Facebook and Twitter blocks get these. It will increase stability of the loading of content in these blocks and allow users more interaction.

    Step# 8 which seemed quite trivial and not mentioned elsewhere helped me. Great job, keep going !!

    Please, I was confused about the term No-branded apps... imagine that I want to show in the app, the facebook of the soccer teams that I like - in that case, I still need to go through this process? Thank you.

  • Thomas W.

    @bam: Yes, you need to go through this process. Any Facebook user can request their own App ID. You don't need to be an administrator of the Facebook Page.

    Tks Thomas - Just one last check... If I'm developing the App for another person, who should create It? Me or the other person who will own the App?

  • Thomas W.

    @bam: The developer can create the Facebook App ID.
