Shatner's lengthy review of the app ends with the conclusion that it's not hugely useful for the celebs it targets, saying: "I'm not quite sure why Facebook released this app for 'celebrities'. It seems to be ill conceived. I will probably use it to post to my Facebook when I'm on my phone but it doesn't allow for mail or groups. I will continue to use my regular Facebook app as well as the Pages app." [Tumblr via Slashgear]
