App of the Day (Naughty Edition): Facebook for iPad

Get an early look at the unreleased FB app for Apple's tablet

| Apps News | Posted: Jul 25, 2011 6:51 pm

Our very naughty TweakTown App of the Day today is Facebook for iPad thanks to the folks over at Pocket Lint.

 

So, we will admit it - this app isn't even released yet. It was discovered by some clever pundits earlier who somehow found it as part of the Facebook iPhone app. I can't wait to get my hands on it, but I don't think I'll jailbreak my iPad 2 to get early access to it.

 

After playing with the application for a while it starts to feel a bit like browsing in the OS X version of Safari. Essentially, you build up layers the more you click on elements in different pages and profiles, swiping right will take you back through these until you hit the news feed. From here you can tap on the three bars in the top left, this will then bring out a pop-out navigation menu where you can negotiate directly to things like your profile, news feed and photos, as well as groups you are involved in.

 

Tap on your profile and things look more like the desktop version of Facebook bar the photos tab, which is similar to the iPad's own photo app. Albums appear to load very quickly and single shots support finger zooming in and out.
