Facebook for iPad has finally arrived
Today, Facebook officially launches an app for the iPad. The long awaited app for the iPad provides a new way to use the popular social networking site. iPad users can now spend time interacting with their friends with a version optimized for their tablet.
The Facebook app is a universal app for the iPhone and iPad but it has a interface designed specifically for each device.
Here are some key features for the iPad app.
A hands-on Facebook
Use your fingertips to scroll through your News Feed. Give the screen a swipe to page through albums. Pinch a picture to zoom in. Whatever you’re up to, using Facebook on your iPad just feels fun.
Bigger, better photos
Photos really shine on the iPad. They’re bigger and easy to flip through, like a real photo album. It’s like having a slideshow with all your friends and memories, wherever you go.
Navigate anywhere, fast
Your games, apps, groups and lists are in the left-hand menu, so you don’t have to dig around to find the stuff you use most. And your messages and notifications are at the top of every screen, so you can respond to friends and keep up with important updates—without losing your place.
Chat, games and other features
The app comes with a bunch of other new features: You can chat with friends right from your iPad, for example, or play games and use apps in full-screen mode. You can also watch high-res videos inline, record HD video and stream to Airplay devices.
The iPad Facebook app arrives one year and a half after the iPad hit the market. Most people were expecting the most popular social networking site to launch an app on the most popular tablet much sooner, but after several delays but the wait is over.
