Whilst most of us mainly access Facebook via our smartphones and tablets, there are times when you may be working on a desktop and laptop computer and may want to access Facebook for a variety of reasons.

Sure, you can visit the regular Facebook website, but let’s face it, it isn’t great. Current is a desktop application that makes Facebook better for Mac OSX users.

Current really shines when it comes to Facebook messages and notifications. Once you’ve installed the app, you can access your messages and notifications, and see which of your friends are online, via an icon in your top menu bar.

Once you’ve clicked on a message the conversation opens in a pop-out window. In similar fashion you can open your news feed in another window. All in all, if you’re a Facebook lover and often find yourself chained to a Mac then this is a must have app.

Current for Facebook is priced at $1.99 at the time of writing, you can get it from the App Store now.
