Facebook iPad App to Launch at iOS 5 and iPhone 5 Event?







Mashable claims that Facebook is actually launching its long awaited iPad app at Apple's rumored October 4th media even where the company is believed to be launching iOS 5 and the iPhone 5.
Quote:
Facebook will launch its long-awaited iPad app at Apple's iPhone 5 launch event on Oct. 4, Mashable has learned. In addition to the iPad app, Facebook is also expected to release a revamped version of its iPhone app and may unveil an HTML5-based mobile app marketplace.
The news comes after a report that a Facebook developer had quit with concerns that the iPad Facebook app may never launch.

According to Mashable, Facebook may also introduce a revamped iPhone app as well. There has been evidence in the past that the two companies would be working to integrate Facebook into iOS much as Apple has done with Twitter, but disagreements reportedly derailed the integration. Separately, we had received an unconfirmed tip that Facebook may actually be integrated with iOS 5, but we have been unable to corroborate that information.

Apple is expected to hold a media event on October 4th where the company will introduce the iPhone 5 and announce a release date for iOS 5.

Between Nuance integration and Facebook it seems there are several features in iOS 5 that are not in the beta versions the developers have been testing.

If that's true this is a kick in the teeth for the guy who's just quit Facebook after developing the app.. could have taken all the credit at the Oct 4th event! But I'm sure Google are paying more money for him to care about this.

I stopped caring about a Facebook app a long time ago. I spend less than 15 minutes on FB a week, tendency falling, as it is becoming more and more annoying to use.

I bet FB interation will come with 5.1 or something. I don't see it right of the bat if the iPad app developer just quit.

Apple is keeping Facebook alive. Everyone is leaving Boringbook and using Twitter exclusively these days.

Makes sense. I think I remember reading that their timeline feature is supposed to be released to the public on Oct. 3.

For me it's quite the opposite. I had a Twitter account 2 years before I had a FB account, and I rarely use Twitter (I haven't touched it for months).

I know iOS 5 hasn't even been released yet, but I'm already super-excited for 5.1.

If the new Facebook app is anything like the revised Facebook web interface, I'll pass. The new changes are a giant step backwards.

Who cares. I hope not, if so I'll skip that part of the keynote and go to the restroom.

@isaacdull
If you really believe any of them are any different (myspace, Facebook, twitter, google plus, etc etc), you're nuts. People will keep moving to the newest and coolest indefinitely, but there's no difference. My demographic has no use for it, so we're not on any of them. Kids and women will always be into these things and move from one to the next, most people will not be into any of them.
