Our App of the Day today is Facebook for iPhone and iPad 4.0.1 with iOS 3.0 or later.
With the mad rush of iOS app update recently with iOS 5.0 about to drop on the world, Facebook also joined in on the fun.
Yesterday Zuck and crew finally made the world and its iPad's happy by finally releasing Facebook for iPad. It's pretty much what I expected, but that's a good thing. It provides almost the full desktop Facebook experience on your iPad and they did a good job of it.
Besides the launch of Facebook for iPad, the regular iPhone app has also bene updated with some rather good user interface changes that I like a lot. Today Facebook released version 4.0.1 which fixes some issues with signing in after updating the app from an older version.
