Thanks for playing Friendly and MyPad, the real Facebook iPad app has arrived. It may not show up for you immediately on the device, as it’s being rolled out worldwide. As a work around, you can use the link below from your iPad to get the app now !
The app does provide the standard status update, photos upload, location Check In and Chat. Pages, Groups, Events and Friends are all among the functionality we expected and are included. Navigation in the app is done quite elegantly, with a press of the menu button in the top-left (or swipe front left to right), the content slides right, to reveal the menu options.
Photo galleries support the usual iPad swiping goodness, and Nearby shows your friend’s pictures on a map at the last location they checked in.
The Facebook iPad app has a few shortcomings, there’s no ability to edit profile information and you can’t see that sexy new profile Timeline. There’s no ticker in the top-right, although judging from the feedback when it launched, most users won’t be heart broken about that omission.
That aside, if your an iPad and Facebook user, you should at least try it out. The official Facebook iPad app is available free from the App Store. Facebook have posted an official page for the application at http://www.facebook.com/mobile/ipad
