    It's October 4th, where is it?

    The iPhone 4s is a disappointment, but not as disappointing as the Facebook iPad app not being released!

    It's a good question. Speculation on Leo's TWiT panel this morning was that large heads at Apple and Facebook kept colliding, and they couldn't come to an agreement.

    One interesting thing is that twitter is highly-integrated into iOS 5. I wouldn't be surprised to see a means of sending a tweet through Siri.

    It's pathetic how long it's taking to release. I guess the developer who quit Facebook was right, this app will never see the light of day!

    as far as i can tell, no one at facebook or apple confirmed that it was going to be released today. just rumors. so nothing was "supposed" to happen.

    Facebook doesn't give a twit or a tweet about Apple and its devices. I personally don't see it happening ever.

    i've no idea how anyone believed that rumour in the first place, it wasn't about the iPad so why would they announce an app designed for a device they aren't announcing?

    Same with project sparten, it's not designed for the iPhone so it was never going to be mentioned.

    The keynotes were disappointing but more because most of the time was spent replaying wwdc but i guess since there wasn't much to announce they had to pad it up somehow :rolleyes:

    Was it just me or did anyone else see the Facebook app in one of the slides during the keynote? I think it was when they were talking about businesses using the iPad. It may have been a different app but it looked like the Facebook one.

    Edit: This?
