Facebook for iPad launches


By

Facebook launched version 4.0 of its iOS app. With the update, the app now offers dual iPhone and native iPad support. Long-awaited, rumored often delayed, a native app has been something many iPad have wanted.

- Enjoy bigger, better photos: Your photos take on new life on the iPad. They're big, high-res and easy to flip through--like a real photo album.
- Focus on what matters: With less on the screen, it's easier to zoom in on your friends' photos, updates and stories.
- Navigate anywhere, fast: Just tap, slide or pinch to get from one screen to another and back again in no time.
- Never lose your place: Use simplified navigation to send a message, see your notifications or browse your bookmarks without switching screens.
- Play games on the go: Play your favorite Facebook games wherever you are, and on a bigger screen.
- Tap to send messages: A simple dropdown menu makes it easy to scan and send messages without visiting your inbox.


Beyond iPad support, version 4.0 also has some other goodies.

With improved search and browsing, the facebook.com features you use most are now just a touch away. It's a faster, fuller Facebook for iPhone.
