iPad: Facebook App Is Here - Who Cares?

The Facebook app for the iPad is here.  Does it matter?  Maybe if you use it a lot and wanna waste more of your time away on it, then okay, this is a big deal.

Here are a couple of screen shots I took from the iPhone 4.

I think the gaming that the app brings is very interesting from a curiosity standpoint and how "HTML 5" this all really is.  Supposedly, this is all based on a new gaming and Web platform that Facebook has been working on with Apple's help.

What else do you get?
  • Higher rez pics
  • Better navigation (we'll see)
  • Ability to spy on your friends (I've got Foursquare for that).
  • Again, gaming...most interesting addition.
What I don't see is better privacy but coming from Facebook, that'll never happen.

If this is your cup of tea, its available in the iTunes store or your app store on your iOS devices now. For the rest of us, it's "meh" update.
