Anyone know when Facebook is due to launch an app for the iPad?
I have the friendly facebook app, its pretty cool. Its only 99c so its not too much of a commitment.
if you're jailbroken using the official iphone facebook app along with FullForce from cydia is pretty good, shame there's no push for chat included but that's what IM+ is for
Friendly and Social seem to be the two big apps for the iPad. I use Friendly and it's fine but I like the free iPhone app better.
Social is by far the best and the developer updates consistenly, and his updates actually bring things to the table. Social will bring new life into "The Facebook"
i use friendly on the ipad and facebook on the iphone.
Absolutely no idea also why Facebook hasn't released an iPad app. I think they thought initially that opening it up on Safari would satisfy most users. I actually would want an iPad-optimized Facebook app similar to how they optimized one for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Haven't really tried the other 3rd party apps that people have mentioned here, but I think the Twitter universal app has a pretty nice format for the iPad. Facebook should really follow suit. On a more personal note, it would be great to have a "via Facebook for iPad" tag along with my posts that people can see. LOL
Maybe because the developer who did the iPhone facebook App left a while ago?
why do you need a facebook app? Just go to the webpage. This reliance on apps instead of the web is puzzling to me sometimes.
There's no good reason to have an app for Facebook on the iPad. You can do 99% of what you want to do on the website through a browser (chat being a notable exception.)
I downloaded Friendly, and it's nice and all, but I find the real website more familiar and just as easy to use.
I would like to be able to upload photos from my Photo Library app to FB on my iPad. Give me that and Chat in the app and I'm good to go.
Probably a question of what you are used to but I generally find the web site more confusing than the various apps. Especially since it tends to show nun-reproducible content and you can't come back to where you were.
+1 for Friendly Facebook
Cheap price and looks great too. Oh and chat feature is good to have
I'm surprised the Echofon guys released Echofon for Facebook for iPhone but not for iPad. Wouldn't releasing it for iPad fill the void better?
I like to go for friendly and I would recommend it to everyone, its nice and friendly.
can't believe its not out yet!
Social really looks nice to play with. for 2$ I think I'll buy it
I have both iPad apps and I am not very satisfied. I prefer accessing Facebook through Safari. It works better. At least I can access my groups, something that Social and Friendly do not offer. Actually both apps look like they are using touch.facebook.com
Same interface, same functionality.
I wish a better client comes in the near future.
Just access facebook through the browser. What is so hard about that? I agree with the earlier poater that wondered why the reliance on an app. On the iPad accessing the actual Facebook site is far better. One of the key benefits of the iPad is the fact that it is a great tool for accessing the web.
I use the Friendly App for 99.9% of my FB experience on the iPad, but for just the photo uploading I leave the facebook for iphone/ipod installed.
The friendly Facebook app now supports photo uploads and the web browser for Facebook within the app seems faster too now
I find friendly very cumbersome in the current release.
It annoys me to hell that I have to first select the account when I start the App, no quick look at my wall.
Especially since logging in at that point seems to fail every 2nd time or so and I have to wait and retry.
Needs another update before I use it again.
I, too, bought Friendly in lieu of an official Facebook app. I liked Friendly, but they've just released 3.0 and it's buggy as hell. Plus, despite claiming faster login, it adds an extra step due to multiple account support.
They need to:
1) Fix it so that it does actually login, instead of hanging; and
2) Make the multiple account login screen optional.
Considering i only have one account on it i think its strange that i have to click on my profile in order to log in. Surely its better to automatically login for users with only one account set up
I plan to email them about this and I hope that mine will be one of hundreds or thousands of such emails. With only one account, this new login screen is quite a big drop in usability for me. I just want to be able to tap the app icon and be straight into the news feed like I had before. Surely they must be getting so much negative feedback on this new setup that they will make it optional very soon.
