Finally, after long being in the development, Facebook‘s official app for iPad has been released for the masses. The exact contribution of George Hotz is not yet known but being an iOS guru he must have contributed to the development process of this long-rumored app. Even before the release of this app, thanks to FaceForward jailbroken iPad owners were able to enjoy the unofficial leaked Facebook For iPad App.
Facebook’s official page for iPad app states:
