Facebook for iPad app features
Facebook app 4.0 has been redesigned and I love the simple and clean interface. Now you can access messages and notification at the top of every screen. Never miss any important updates again.
While you can “like” and “comment” on friend’s post but you can’t “share” it on Facebook app. It’s a missing feature!
The Facebook for iPad shows bigger photos and you can flip through photos in album, just like the default Photos app.
You can access left-hand navigation by tapping the menu button the top left or simply swipe to right to reveal it. The left navigation menu shows your favorites, groups, pages, and apps. But “friend lists” is missing.
Want to play Facebook games on iPad? Now you can playin the Facebook app. The supported games including the famous Farmville, Texas HoldEm Poker and more.
Missing “Chat” in Facebook for iPad?
I was searching for “Chat” function in the Facebook iPad app. It is not in the top menu bar, not in the left-navigation… In the end, I found it – Simply turn your iPad to horizontal mode and the Chat will appear on the right hand side. Silly me!
By the way, Facebook for iPhone has “Chat” in left-navigation menu, under “Apps”.
Upload photos in Facebook app
Like to upload photos to Facebook? The new Facebook for iPad allows you to take photo, record video, and upload them to Facebook in the app. Not using iPad 2? You can still choose a saved photo and upload it.
My two cents
Before this, I was searching for the best Facebook app. I tried many paid and free apps but couldn’t find any. The 3rd party Facebook app for iPad are mostly buggy and sluggish.
The new official Facebook is sexy, clean and, most importantly, it works smoothly. Hope the next update will add some missing features like sharing and friend lists.
Tip: If you have trouble to launch Facebook app, try to uninstall the app, restart iPhone/iPad, and re-install Facebook app.
