    How does it look? Also lite.facebook.com how does that render? Is there a Facebook HD app yet? Thanks for input.

    I'm using the Facebook Ultimate App. I do not like it. I'm waiting for the official FB release.

    Facebooknapp looks horrible as it is not an hd version. So you getbthe tiny iphone version or the double res one. The website looks the best and the lite will load the fastest. I'm using the website.

    I'm noticing I'm not needing apps like eBay or Facebook as I can access them in safari. In case you haven't noticed, there's a settings in safari for adding the bookmarks bar. So perfect. All we need is tabbed browsing. Please.

    Well there isn't an Facebook for iPad app yet but when it does come out it will be you best option. The iPhone app just looks wierd blown up. So far I have been using the actual website which i have to say is doing pretty good. The only problem I have encountered is the chat bar doesn't stay the bottom. It stays fixed in the middle. But it's small and on the side, so not really that bad

    Yep, but the chat bar stays in the middle of the page.

    Just the normal desktop site works and looks great on the iPad. Aside from the chat bar needing to be fixed and a few areas in the site where scrolling doesn't work, everything is fine. Honestly as far as I sm concerned, there is no need for a iPad app, just tweak the site.

    Facebook looks great in safari. But you can't upload media.
