Facebook being one of the biggest online media sites, have yet to release a native iPad app, and with the launch of the new iPhone OS on Monday and developers getting their apps for iOS 4 ready, this brings into question why Facebook still have nothing to present.
According to MS Siegler at TechCrunch, millions of iPad owners are yet to have a Facebook app and are having to use imitations which Facebook have been less than happy about. Considering that the post-iPad launch was almost 3 months ago, has customers asking when the iPad app will be expected.
The present Facebook Android app has been more than disappointing whereas the iPhone app on the other hand owes its thanks to version 3, therefore, giving it the limelight that it rightly deserves. The latest iPhone update (3.1.3) has brought varying opinions of some customers.
Along with this, Facebook have overlooked the UI bug which creates the main screen in the app when accessing new messages or friend requests on a customer’s account. On the upside of all of this, the ability to write on walls and view videos in the app is promising, although this in itself looks to have teething problems.
Unfortunately, with the departure of developer Joe Hewitt who was seen walking away from the Facebook project last November, things have taken a downward spiral for this online media site.
