Yeah At last! Facebook app for iPad has finally released. After so many leaks, negotiations and everything Facebook finally released it’s tablet oriented app for iPad.
The app features a slick navigation menu on the left side of the screen, which lets you quickly jump to features like News Feed, Messages, your Groups, and the other places you commonly access on Facebook. The remainder of the app ties together the features you’d expect from Facebook’s mobile experience (like Check-ins) with the features you find on the desktop, like a Chat bar that’s presented alongside the News Feed. Facebook’s iPhone app isn’t being left out in the cold, either — it’s also receiving a UI refresh, including the slick navigation menu.
Brett Taylor, Facebook’s chief technology officer, said in a phone interview that the app was delayed because it
“just wasn’t ready yet.”
“We felt that the Facebook Web site on the iPad was a really good experience,”
“We really feel that we have built an app that takes full advantage of touch, photos and chat.”
