Hard to believe there isnt a official FB app for iPad yet. Anyone venture to guess why the delay?
Because there's no need. Just use the regular website to do all your Facebooking. The website has all the functionality as if on your desktop/laptop. You just can't install any of those add-ons...which you wouldn't be able to do with an iPad app anyway.
That's what I've been doing the whole time. It works exactly the same, the only thing it doesn't have is that chatting thingy.
Thats not entirely true... Full FB, Mobile FB, and Touch FB Websites dont allow you to upload photos via iPad's Safari browser. (Flash is needed for facebook.com to upload photos)
However the iPhone Facebook app does allow you to upload photos from the iPad (no flash needed).
I realize I could use the iPhone app to just upload photos... but it would be nice to have a one-stop-facebooking app.
Actually that's not entirely true. I cannot post a status update nor post on someone's wall (I can however comment) on the webpage in the browser. For some reason it clicks but doesn't bring up the keyboard.
I just updated my status using the full Web site. Clicked on "What's on your mind?", keyboard came up and my test posted correctly. Same deal with posting on a wall.... no issues.
because FaceBook is evil!!
Not to mention push notifications!
I have been using the app called ....Friendly Facebook app.
It works great and actually a lot better than the one on my iphone. It was not free but well worth the couple of bucks I spent on it. I tried using the browser and it sucked but now with the friendly app I am a happy facebook user again.
Yeah, go in the market and search for friendly - facebook browser or something along those lines. It's a great way to access facebook on the iPad, however there are some kinks that need to be worked out.
