iPad’s bigger screen is finally graced by a bigger and more feature filled Facebook app.
Facebook app has been on every device from Nokia to iPhone to Windows Phone 7. But iPad has been long deprived on any dedicated official app for its platform. Facebook has been prepping up for a “Full Facebook” experience on the iPad for which they had to delay the release rather than just porting the iPhone version to iPad. This new iPad targeted app has full large screen photo galleries, slideshows, groups, lists, apps, games, navigation and search bar etc.
The app is fully capable of allowing you to use the new facebook video chat and even recording HD video directly via the app and sharing it. You can easily use the big iPad screen to play games with friends.
Facebook fully realizes the importance of apps for mobile devices as more than 45% of their traffic comes from smartphones and tablets. So, it is integral for them to make all facebook’s features compatible with these devices and not just the desktop PC. The iPad version of the app is shining example of that how they aim to bring the maximum core features of facebook to the touch interface.
Do note that an updated version of facebook app for iPhone is also available taking some of navigation bar etc. bringing some of iPad version changes and features to smaller counterpart. You can grab the app for free @ iTunes
