A few days ago, Facebook quietly released its Pages Manager app for Android to the Play Store. The app, which had been making iOS-toting page managers' lives easier for quite some time, was a welcome addition, save for one thing: it could only be installed in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, leaving US users in the dark.

It appears that's changed today. The Pages Manager app, in an update too small to warrant a change log, opened up to those in the US.

A refreshing sight for international page managers

Facebook hasn't released an official announcement regarding Pages Manager, so we don't have official confirmation that the app has launched globally. What we do have, however, is confirmation from our readers in at least fifteen countries so far. Is the app available for install where you live?

This writer still isn't sure why page management warrants a spin-off app of its own, but it nonetheless makes a handy tool. The app can post new updates and photos, reply to comments (in your page's voice), view and reply to private messages, retrieve notifications about new activity, and view page insights.

If you're a page manager outside Canada, Australia, and New Zealand who's been waiting for Facebook's solution to on-the-go page management, just hit the widget below.

    Since I'm an admin for two work-related and one hobby-related FB Pages, this is a big help, especially since managing pages using Browser/Chrome is slow as hell.

    I was delighted to hear it is finally available, but alas I am still relying on Gmail notifications since the bloody app doesn't actually make any noise when you get a notification!

      Yeah, only thing I hate about it. No audible updates. :P
