Yesterday was the big Facebook announcement and a few goodies that came out included a new and welcomed update for Android devices as well as an update in terms of the iPhone app. And similar to the other times an iPhone app update was released, there was a groan from iPad users in that an iPad specific or even a universal app available. Well, it turns out that an iPad app was not announced because yesterdays event was a mobile event and according to Zuckerberg, “the iPad isn’t mobile.” Personally I am not sure I fully agree, while it may not be a mobile phone the iPad still should qualify as mobile. Anyway, here is to hoping that something comes in the future, but at least in the meantime iPad users have apps such as Social and Friendly for their Facebook-app-on-the-iPad needs.
