Facebook For iPad Goes Live!

  • October 10, 2011 4:51 pm

The repeated false alarms and missed (rumored) release dates can now be put into memory and forever forgotten. Facebook has finally, finally released the official iPad app from the confines of Facebook prison.

The biggest “feature” of Facebook for iPad will be the seamless (in theory) integration of other 3rd party apps. Click on a particular post that contains content from a Facebook app that just so happens to have an iOS/iPad equivalent and your iPad will automatically fast-app switch into said app. Bonus: This works on the mobile Facebook webpage too!

Outside of support for 3rd party apps, Facebook for iPad is as one expect, home to a well laid out tablet UI and comes packed with all the usual Facebook features such as chat, check-ins, photo/video uploads, etc.

The app is now live in the App Store — Get it now.

Let us know what you think and if the long delays were warranted.
