After months of speculation, Facebook rolled out the long-awaited iPad app on Monday. It's available free from the Apple App Store, has bigger photos and lets you play games on the go.
Here are some of the highlights:
- 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 are bigger and easy to flip through, like a real photo album.
- 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.
Facebook has also made improvements to the iPhone app and m.facebook.com.
