We’re considering adding support for Facebook Connect for iPhone apps into FriendRunner, and wanted to hear people’s reactions and ideas. Feedback helps us to build a better product and provide you with more value.
It would be very easy for us to provide support for the FriendRunner Profiler for iPhone apps so that developers can see the interaction between their apps and the Facebook server. This will allow you to easily find inefficiencies in how your app uses the Facebook API, and cut down on the number of round-trips the app makes with the Facebook servers. This is always important to do in a mobile application since it will give users a faster experience.
But how about load testing your Facebook Connect for iPhone apps? This is probably only meaningful if the application also connects to some backend server that you run. If the entire application only consists of something running on the iPhone and Facebook itself, is load testing overkill?
So let us know what your needs are. What kinds of features are you using to connect your iPhone apps to Facebook? How can we help your testing efforts?
