Facebook for iPad is Here, For Real This Time


Remember the secret Facebook iPad app that leaked in late July? It was hidden inside the code for Facebook’s iPhone app, so of course someone found it and then everyone reported on it. There were all kinds of bugs, which was to be expected for something not even released yet.

Well, after months of speculation, Facebook has released their iPad app and it’s for real this time. See, they even have a dedicated page for it here. Are you saying “It’s about dang time”?

The team at Facebook is calling it a new way to experience Facebook with bigger and better photos, games on the go and more.

Here are a few of the features you’ll enjoy when you download the app:

  • Play games in full screen mode, thanks to Facebook Platform for mobile devices and iOS
  • Fast navigation – tap, pinch or slide to get from one place to another
  • A drop down menu to easily send messages
  • Less on the screen, which allows you to focus on what really matters
  • Big, hi-res photos with easy flip through – like a real photo album
  • Supports HD video

The Secret Facebook iPad App


TechCrunch revealed the Facebook iPad app, which sort of seems like a secret at the moment. It’s hidden inside the code for Facebook‘s iPhone app, which possibly means it’s not really supposed to be for public use yet.

Well, now that everyone seems to be reporting on it, it seems the “secret” is out and Facebook might want to work out a few of the bugs.

Back in 2010, at a Facebook event when Mark Zuckerburg was asked about an app for the iPad he said, “the iPad’s not mobile… it’s a computer”. It seems he’s changed his tune and realized it’s about time to release one, well kind of.

After talking to a source, TechCrunch has been told that this is indeed the app Facebook was planning to launch for the iPad. You can see tons of pictures here and a tutorial of how to install it here.

Some of the bugs that have been reported are Facebook pages crashing and improper text placements.

For those who have been able to play around with the app, they say they’ll definitely use it over the full website and cannot wait for it to officially launch.

Have you installed the Facebook iPad app and if so, what do you think?
