Finally. After months of leaks and debates, Facebook has finally released an App for iPad users. As The New York Times reports, Facebook has managed to clear out all bugs and is ready to release their App to iPad users. The App should be available for free to users globally shortly on the App Store. The App will allow you to access Facebook directly without having to open your browser, and also allow you to watch photos, profiles, videos, and your Facebook news feed right from your iPad within taps using gestures.
Along with the App, Facebook is also launching “Platforms” for mobile that will allow developers to integrate their Apps with Facebook. With bookmarks, developers of existing Apps for iOS will be able to integrate Facebook natively. The App is available here, get it now!
