    I'm new to iPad and I guess there's no regular FB app?
    Do most of you just use the regular FB site on your iPad?

    I use Friendly for Facebook and it works well. Flipbook can read your Facebook account as well.

    My dad uses flipbook on his. It is a really good app, and you can use it for more than just facebook.

    Friendly works well, the ads are small if you don't want to pay for the pro version (what is it though, like a buck? It's one of the cheaper apps).

    If it's jailbroken, full force makes the iPhone app look great, looks like it's a native iPad app. Otherwise, Friendly works fantastic. Flipboard looks nice, but I find it to be limited and it never wants to update correctly or post comments, maybe it's just me but all I can ever seem to do is read, not write.

    Friendly is just a skin of touch.facebook.com, however, which I think is why Facebook hasn't released an iPad app, for the same reason they don't have a Mac or Windoze app, they intend for you to use your web browser to access facebook. You might just like pointing safari to touch.facebook.com

    I just can't use Flipbook
    It is just too busy and out of place for me
    It isn't the interface that I want... but lots of people love it

    I use Facepad. It is free with ads but I paid 99 cents for Facepad+ to remove them. I like it a lot.

    Just bookmark the safari link to your home page. Your name and password will be remembered. The app for Facebook is horrible.

    I think using the website on the iPad is horrible. Too much reliance on hovering that causes issues.

    Friendly has a really nice interface. I like it much better than regular facebook on my laptop.

    Safari browser works fine. There is no need for an app for everything.

    lol epic fail. quick access with touch screen friendly controls for ease of use. of course you need an app for everything, it just makes sense.

    Agree with this and it is nothing to do with functionatlity of iPad and everything to do with terrbile design and interface of Facebook. It really is appaling design considering the large profit they make. It shows that money can not buy you the class of apple design.

    I completely agree that the hovering issues are annoying, but I still use Facebook in Safari as I find it the easiest to use.
