facebookAfter months of waiting and speculation on when owners of Apple’s iPad will get to see an official Facebook app on their tablet, the day has finally come. The Facebook app has finally hit the iPad and it sure does look awesome to the extent that you might believe it was worth the wait. The best part it is, that the app was also updated for the iPhone & iPod Touch which seems to be exactly the same as the one that hit the iPad. With a slight interface overhaul, we show you what has changed.

The app’s interface has been redesigned keeping the large screen area of the iPad in mind, so now you have a Menu that slides in from the left of the screen to allow you to easily navigate through the different pages and options. Facebook has done away with the older main page which listed various buttons related to your profile. Now, you have a clean, sleek menu. The same interface goes on to the iPhone and iPod Touch devices as well.



You now get to surf through high resolution photos courtesy of the bigger screen on the iPad, while simple drop down menus add to the convenience without having you jump from page to page. Also the Search function seems to have gotten more easier and snappier.

The app increasingly seems like it’s desktop counterpart or the mobile Facebook, but whatever it resembles, the app has managed to impress us. You can download or update your existing Facebook app from here via iTunes, or you can simply update it via the App Store from your iDevice.
