Facebook for iPad launching in "coming weeks"

iPad to get Facebook app in "coming weeks"

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Jun 17, 2011 3:00 am

Finally, a Facebook app for the iPad is coming. Facebook have finally finished a tablet-optimized version of their now 700 million strong social network. According to The New York Times, unnamed sources have seen the new app and say it has a "slick design that has been tailored for the iPad and its touchscreen interface."

The same sources also mention how Facebook Chat and Groups have had a new fresh layer of paint for the iPad and the app will go beyond what the Facebook website can do, allowing users to take photos from the iPad (well, the second-generation iPad) and place them directly on Facebook. The lucky SOBs that saw the app called the photo and video uploading capabilities "amazing, offering full-resolution and full-screen images."

 

Just as I'm about to lay down some cash for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, they finally get around to releasing a Facebook app that I could install on my iPad. Sob.
