Update 1: The app is now live! Click here to download it.
The moment you’ve been waiting for is almost here. The official Facebook iPad app will be available for download in the App Store today, as noted by the NYT. A Facebook software engineer describes the new Facebook for iPad experience:
Mr. Dubinsky highlighted the use of multitouch gestures within the app, a feature that is not available on the Facebook Web site. “Use your fingertips to scroll through your News Feed. Give the screen a swipe to page through albums. Pinch a picture to zoom in,” he wrote.
Facebook highlighted other key features in the announcement: Photos and videos are given prominence in the app and can be viewed full-screen. Users can also capture photos and videos with the iPad and put them directly into the Facebook news feed. Gaming and Facebook Chat are also major components of the app.
This is a long time coming, especially after the iPad app was actually hidden in the iPhone version of the app. It is set to go live any minute, stay tuned.
