Yes! smartphones running on Firefox OS also have very good Facebook application. The only thing that I hate about it is, it shows off the password characters when typing unlike in android and iOS. Apart from it everything is fine and cool.

You can choose to check messages for every time interval during the profile set up itself.

Translator application by Kumar McMillan works great on Firefox. It detects the language automatically and gives out the meaning as given in dictionary along with the parts of speech of it.

All the meanings fetched are from wordreference.com. The source code for this app is open to the developers for any further development of it.

#7 Photo Funia

Photo Funia, as it sounds is an photo editing application that can be used to set some post effects for the pictures taken with your smartphone. If you are an Android or iOS user, you would have used this app once in your gadget experience lifetime.

You can choose from different effects that are available in the menu options.

#10 Flappy Bird Plus

Yes! the flappy bird is here. The gaming application that every android and iOS users dreamt of having on their mobile phones. Would you believe me that second-hand iPhones installed with flappy bird application were sold out for about 150% higher rates than that of the original rate?

You will get the original flappy bird experience with Firefox OS. If still your android and iOS freaky friend taunts you, show the flappy bird and he’ll never dare to take out his phone again when you are around.

Last beep

Firefox has just entered into smartphone race as an underdog. It may take a couple of years of time for it to evolve and get a market like Android and iOS. Even android is in the limelight when Symbian was ruling the world with Nokia devices. The market goes with the trend. If you are a real techie, you should also learn how to swim against the flow.

If you are the one who chose that Firefox mobile among all those reigning androids and iOS’s, you are gutsy one to try out new technologies. You can adapt to any technology faster than those of your friends who would just swim with the flow.

All the best! I wish Firefox bring more charm and magic to the future versions of its operating systems.
