iPad Facebook App Timeline Update Delayed Till Mid January, Could Be Longer
Bring this to the iPad already
Facebook continues to snub the iPad when it comes to updates for the popular social networking site, and its accompanying apps.
The iPad finally got a native Facebook app earlier this year, but only because users discovered the App was fully contained within an updated version of iPhone app. Facebook released updates for its iPod touch and iPhone apps that include the companies new Timeline feature. Timeline, Facebook’s latest and greatest improvement to their social networking experience, re-imagines the user’s profiles as a constantly updating timeline or self contained “history of” page for that individual. It’s almost a surreal experience scrolling through every action and reaction you or a friend had in 2007.
This update was supposed to come to the iPad in December as well, but was pushed back at the last-minute due to some bugs discovered during advanced testing. Timeline on the iPhone and iPod touch appears to be working pitch-perfect, as well as other features like improved photo-management, subscriptions management, friends list, and other improvements. The iPad version of timeline is supposedly a touch optimized version of the full web experience.
However, according to 9to5Mac’s source the update has already been delayed once because of bugs “So, it would not be surprising for the update to be delayed once again.” Despite the pessimistic comment the source stressed the current release window is mid-January. Hopefully the comedy of errors that is Facebook’s iPad development cycle will finally smooth out in the new year.

Timeline and facebook are both aggrivating me to no end. I'll be deleting my account very soon. i just want to have status updates and share pics with my fam. Why make it so retarded? I can't even text anything to it since the amazing "update". Total garbage.
