Facebook for iPad Coming in Weeks Time
iPad had been out for more than a year but there’s still no Facebook app suitable for it.
New York Times’ Nick Bilton said that the long wait is over. Facebook will release the free iPad app very soon. The report also said that Facebook has been working on the iPad app for almost a year now. A source who works with Facebook mentioned that Mark Zuckerberg has been greatly involved in designing the app. The iPad version of Facebook has a revamped Facebook Chat and Facebook Groups features. iPad Facebook users can also upload directly their photos from their tablets to their profiles.
For now, Facebook is very willing to invest in Apple’s devices but there are rumors that the social networking site has plans to to develop its own mobile platform. According to Tech Crunch, “with nearly 700 million users, Facebook is certainly in the position to challenge the almighty App Store distribution mechanism. But they need to be able to do so on Apple’s devices which make up a key chunk of the market.”
While people wait for the official Facebook app for iPad, they can opt to use an app called Friendly which converts Facebook app to an iPad-friendly version.View Article Source »
