  • FaceBook for iPad *RELEASED*

    FaceBook now reports that they have implemented an iPad version of FaceBook into the App Store.

    While FaceBook appears to have a page, here, stating that they have released an iPad version of their popular social networking app for iOS, the link, "Get The App" only takes me to an iPhone version of the app. FaceBook may be very close to releasing an iPad-resolution version of our favorite social networking site. It's important to note that FaceBook has posted this page on FaceBook; although, the app is not out yet. The fact that FaceBook's official page says that it's out seems to hint that it might be on it's way out perhaps even today. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Recently, the only way to get FaceBook on your iPad was to use a jailbreak hack that enabled the hidden iPad code in the iPad app. FaceBook quickly picked up on what jailbreakers were doing and released a patch which killed the usefulness of this tweak (FaceForward). FaceBook was expected to bring the iPad version of FaceBook out at Apple's, "Let's Talk iPhone" event the day just before Steve Jobs' death. FaceBook never appeared on stage. Could this be their follow-up?

    EDIT: FaceBook for iPad appears to have been officially released. It is universal for all devices. As always, it is free. It comes with FULL iPad-resolution support. The wait is finally over.

      Weird, install the iPhone version and it still is the iPhone version but in the AppStore I see an "Update" button that redownloads just the App. Did you do something special in order to update it? Thanks

      It would seem that it doesn't always update on the first try (weird I know - no idea). Try uninstalling and re-installing the Facebook application entirely.

      Thanks... I've done that 3 times now, I'll try restarting before installing again. Also, I am on iOS 5 GM maybe that's why... Has anyone with iOS 5 been able to update?

      I am also running iOS 5 GM. Installed directly from iTunes and have not had any issues thus far.

      What is the fascination with people now a days having to tell others what they are doing at any given moment?

      Okay, this might just be a complete unluckily situation, but I just updated the facebook app for my iPod touch 4th generation on 4.2.1. Tried to launch it, and my iPod froze for 2 minutes. Then i decided to do a manual restart (the home button+power button) and now my iPod is in recovery mode. wth?
