The app is designed primarily as a consumption experience, which is why the app emphasizes photos.Photos really shine on the iPad. They are bigger and easy to flip through, like a real photo album. It’s like having a slideshow with all your friends and memories, wherever you go.Facebook for iPad supports HD video and Airplay, so users can watch Facebook videos through their Apple TVs or their other Apple devices
The app comes with a bunch of other new features: You can chat with friends right from your iPad, for example, or play games and use apps in full-screen mode.The app also makes great use of the overlay menus found in other iPad apps. When you flip the iPad horizontally, the list of your online friends appears and you can chat with them as you do other things on Facebook.
Your games, apps, groups and lists are in the left-hand menu, so you don’t have to dig around to find the stuff you use most. And your messages and notifications are at the top of every screen, so you can respond to friends and keep up with important updates-without losing your place.Facebook for iPad is now available in the App Store.
