Facebook for iPad Arrives.

The reports have finally come to fruition. The rumour was that Facebook was going to launch the app at the iPhone 5 event (where Apple eventually displayed the iPhone 4S). But now, it's here. Facebook for iPad is rolling out to the App Store (still rolling out, every App Store may not have access to it yet). The app is designed to emphasize photos. When you view a photo in the Facebook for iPad app, the picture will take up the entire screen. You can pinch to zoom in or out of the picture. It has a left hand navigation bar for the News Feed, photos, messages, groups and settings. You can also get notifications, chat and search on the Facebook for iPad app.
Facebook for iPad supports HD video and AirPlay, so users can watch videos from Facebook on their Apple TVs or other Apple devices. The app also allows users to play games in full screen mode, so for all you Farmville addicts, you can now sow your strawberries in full screen. Zynga and EA will support Facebook Credits for their games on the Facebook for iPad app. The app is slowly and quietly rolling out and is available for free from the iOS App Store.
