Is it possible to reply to Facebook event invites without having to log into Facebook? Every time I log into Facebook, there is a chance that I will get distracted and waste time.

I have been looking at this for a few days and the nearest thing I could find to what you want is an iPhone App called EventsBook

Apple Store Link

Developers Website

It can sync Events and Birthdays with Facebook although it is not clear whether you can accept or decline event invitations.

Short of writing your own Application it doesn't look like their is anything out there at the moment. ( I may write one myself - seems like a good idea! :)

UPDATE

It seems there is a service that provides what you want - it is called http://www.mixin.com/

It allows you to collate and manage events and calendar information from lots of various sources - including Facebook.

You can view a full list of features here - they look pretty impressive.

I have just registered and you can fully manage your Facebook events using the service.

Hope this helps!

You can already sync Facebook calendar with Google Calendar or outlook if you don't care about acceptance –  Casebash Jan 26 '11 at 20:26
    
@Casebash - Thanks, I was aware of that. I only mentioned this App as it looks quite good but I'm not sure if it allows accepts/declines for FB events. I have actually emailed the developer of the App for clarification but have had no response as yet. You can obviously use the Facebook App to accept events but then there is always the temptation to look at other areas of Facebook too. –  Barry Jan 26 '11 at 20:59

You could create a Sikuli script that would periodically log in and answer invites. Sikuli is a computer-vision-based UI automation tool.

Check out the demos: http://sikuli.org/

EDIT: Something to look for -- they actually have some demos of folks using Sikuli to play Facebook games for them.
