Official Facebook App for iPad Released

Social networking giant Facebook has finally dished out the official Facebook app for Apple’s iPad tablet PC device.

The app, which is available for free from the iTunes App Store, has been released by the company after more than a year in development. Facebook had unveiled the app earlier this summer but, had failed to release it until now.

An engineer, who helped the company develop the app, resigned from Facebook due to the delay in the release. He left the company to join rival Google. It has believed that the delay was caused due to disagreements between Apple and Facebook.

"Many of you have been asking about Facebook for iPad. Today, it's finally here. With the iPad app, you get the full Facebook experience, right at your fingertips. It's a fun, colorful way to keep up with friends, share photos, chat and more." said Facebook engineer Leon Dubinsky reports

"Facebook on the iPad feels fun. Photos really shine on the iPad. They're bigger and easy to flip through, like a real photo album. It's like having a slideshow with all your friends and memories, wherever you go." he added.

The app comes with a user interface keeping the tablet in mind, complete with tabbed access to various areas of the social network.
