iPad Finally Gets a Native Facebook App, Unofficially.
If you have been using an iPad, you would know that currently there’s no proper Facebook app available for the iPad yet. The one which is available in the App Store is for the iPhone and the iPod touch. Yes you can run it on the iPad as well but only in native iPhone’s resolution, or in the pixilated x2 size mode. Seeing this, Sobees has come up with a useful Facebook client app for iPad which in all fairness does the job well.
sobees for Facebook is the one Facebook application for the iPad you’ve been looking for! With its gorgeous, cutting-edge design, this feature-rich app brings your Facebook community to a new level. Get a look at your friend’s activities (did they update their status, share photos or videos?) organized in a neat, newspaper-like home page. With sobees for Facebook your can also browse your friends, view their profile, see all the pictures that have been added recently in a great way and manage all your events and birthdays in a calendar view!
With Sobees for Facebook, you can do all the common tasks which one would expect a Facebook client to do. The key features of the app are as follows.
View status updates, links, pictures, wall posts and videos from friends.
Look at all of your friends’ pictures on one page (like a real “face book”).
View your friends’ profiles and walls.
Manage events and birthdays with an optimized calendar.
Update your own status and post comments or likes to the statuses of others.
View recent photo albums from your friends and family members.
Check out the video below which shows some of these features in action.
Since there is no other dedicated Facebook app for the iPad yet, and we can’t say for sure when will the developers over at Facebook will come up with one, you can give this one a go! It is functional, and is totally free for this month.
