I agree with the official FB app in WP8. I hope it is as good and reliable as with the iOS version. The notification misses most of the time. And the news feed doesn't show all the news compared when you view it from the desktop or even on the mobile IE browser based facebook.

For example... A can scanner... Simple and easy and there are many of them between Android and Apple. On Windows 8 I found only one and I paid for it and it makes "scans" look hideous! Seriously!

It really comes down to the gaming for me though.

Non-games, WP8 marketplace is not far behind with iOS and Android. Gaming side is a very different story.
