HW13: Facebook App: Polaroid Collage

Picasa Collage

We finish the semester with a simple facebook app, hosted on the google app engine, and using canvas.

  2. Your app will let the facebook user log in. Once logged in, and you have obtained permission to view his friends list, your app will fetch his friends list, then fetch the profile picture for each friend, and finally it will display these photos in one large canvas.

You will turn it in on Wednesday, April 27 @11am here. Make sure you include both the URL to your facebook app ( and the appspot name of your deployed app (
