    I have been using mypad and it has been working fine, offers basically the same functionality as the native Facebook app on the iPhone. Still, I would rather have an official app just because it probably will work a little better. Also, using Facebook via flipboard is really nice, I would encourage anyone who wants an iPad app for Facebook to try either of these.

    Can't wait for Google + to be released to the public.

    Skype and Facebook for iPad come out in the same week? I'll believe it when I see it.

    ...

    So why on earth did it take facebook so long to make an official app?

    This should have been a priority for them :confused:

    Same here. I want it out ASAP so my other friends can join since it is getting tough to get an invitation.

    They still can't get the iPhone app right. It's still full of annoying bugs.

    I agree, seems like every update fixes something and breaks another

    Amen. My screens now spend more time updating than actually showing me what's going on.

    iPhone FB app is not perfect but it's much better than another iPad app that we paid for like Friendly and such BS:(

    Agreed. The iPhone app isn't perfect but it is so much better than the alternatives, like Friendly.

    I thought for sure they would announce this app was coming out today. Oh well. :|


    I really get the impression Facebook just doesn't take these devices that seriously. That's why the phone app is so slow to be updated and improved, and the iPad app was never a priority.

    Does this mean they'll be integrating a video chat thru the Facebook app for iPad?

    I use Facebook so I don't need to actually talk to people to keep in touch. The last thing I want to do is video chat with them.

    Actually. I don't think they will.
    If they are that late releasing a basic native app for the iPad, I won't be anticipating one with their newest features. I don't understand their neglection for iPad all this time :mad:

    i hope something big is in the works. the facebook for iphone app is pretty much unusable at this point. it spends like 2 minutes loading every page. I can go over to my computer, open a browser, goto facebook, then load the comment on facebook quicker then it will take the facebook app to load the same comment

    The ipad was neglected because Zuckerberg said “The iPad isn’t mobile”

    As soon as Google+ becomes fully public, I highly encourage everyone to give it a look.

    Additionally, Google+ is in the App Store approval process right now, unlike FB that could seem to not give a crap about mobile devices. Time to dump FB like a bad habit.
