Facebook is getting ready to release an app for the popular tablet
Dated: Jun 17, 2011
More than a year after Apple introduced the iPad, Facebook is reportedly getting ready to release an app
for the popular tablet in the coming weeks.
More than a year after Apple introduced the iPad, Facebook is reportedly getting ready to release an app for
the popular tablet in the coming weeks. The Facebook app for the iPad has been allegedly in development
for almost a year, with Mark Zuckerberg taking a personal interest in making sure it is carefully designed
and optimized for the tablet. Facebook is also supposedly redesigning its website for the iPad, according to
people briefed on Facebook’s plans, who declined to be named because they were discussing confidential
product plans but were willing to be cited by The New York Times.
In addition to a slick design that has been tailored for the iPad’s touchscreen interface, Facebook
developers and designers have overhauled the Facebook Chat and Facebook Groups features specifically
for the app. The app also lets users shoot photos and videos from the iPad’s camera and then upload them
directly to Facebook.
The app isn’t really anything special: it’s just like the Facebook app for Android or the Facebook app for
iPhone, but made to take advantage of a larger screen. Still, it’s been a long time coming, and after several
design iterations, the app is now in the final stages of testing.
In the meantime, third parties have profited from Facebook’s delays. They have introduced
Facebook-friendly applications for the iPad, including My Pad, iFace, and Friendly. Once Facebook
launches its official app, many of them will likely lose millions of users. Apple will reportedly promote the
new app by featuring it prominently in its App Store.
