What had been in talks for almost a month now has finally turned to reality as the Facebook app for the iPad was released. This comes as the social network opened its arms to the mobile world by bringing the Facebook Platform to Mobile, bringing its third party app developers more tools to play with.
There are over 350 million users accessing Facebook each month via mobile devices that is a mammoth number for Facebook to completely leverage. Facebook Engineer Luke Shephard, stated that the development is still far from over and that they have only launched the Official iPad App. We will be seeing a lot of updates, especially with a closer integration of the virtual currency called the Facebook Credits. It will be interesting to see how this shapes up and how much usability does the entire tap to go experience brings to the iPad/iOS users.
