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 app very soon. The report also said that Facebook has been working on the 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 version of Facebook has a revamped Facebook Chat and Facebook Groups features. Facebook users can also upload directly their from their to their profiles.

For now, Facebook is very willing to invest in ’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 ’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.
