But now you’ve got your new shiny phone (in my case a Nokia Lumia 920), configured your Start Screen and Lock Screen to look just right, but now you’re missing your Apps from your old phone.
So what are you going to do?
Sure you could go to the Windows Phone Store (no longer called Marketplace) and start searching and installing all your apps manually (if you can remember them all). But that’s gonna take a lot of time.
I have a better solution and it’s REALLY COOL
If you’re like me and sick and tired of the “so-called” upgrades to the Facebook web interface.
Why not try something new?
The good folks at Microsoft has just launched a new Silverlight 4 client application for Facebook.
Typically the installation is a 4 step process
- When you click on the link, the website checks if you have the Developer Preview Edition of Silverlight 4. If you don’t have the software, then it will ask you to install it. If you already have it, then you can install the client software (Step 3)
- Once Silverlight 4 has finished installing, you will need to restart the computer
- Then go back to the website to install the Facebook Client software.
- Then type your email address and password used to log in to Facebook
Then you’re done!

So you may think, what’s the big deal?
