So, finally the day has come — Facebook launched the “iPad app.” In addition, Facebook also made several improvements to the iPhone app and m.facebook.com.
“With your next update, you’ll see a simplified navigation, faster search and access to more games and apps,” said the Facebook.
Here are some of the highlights of the iPad app:
- “Use your fingertips to scroll through your News Feed. Give the screen a swipe to page through albums. Pinch a picture to zoom in. Whatever you’re up to, using Facebook on your iPad just 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.
- Your games, apps, groups and lists are in the left-hand menu, so you don’t have to dig around to find the stuff you use most. And your messages and notifications are at the top of every screen, so you can respond to friends and keep up with important updates–without losing your place.
- The app comes with a bunch of other new features: You can chat with friends right from your iPad, for example, or play games and use apps in full-screen mode. You can also watch high-res videos inline, record HD video and stream to Airplay devices,” revealed facebook.
