Many new iPad users have complained about the lack of Facebook apps that are currently available. Social networking is becoming more and more popular and you would think Facebook would be hurrying along an app designed for the eager iPad user.
Luckily there is now an application to keep us going until the official facebook app is launched. Mashable reported today that the new app called ‘Sobees for facebook’ is designed for the iPad and its larger screen. The app uses similar features to the desktop version of facebook. Some of the available features are:
- View status updates, links, pictures, wall posts and videos from friends.
- Look at all of your friends’ pictures on one page (like a real “face book”).
- View your friends’ profiles and walls.
- Manage events and birthdays with an optimized calendar.
- Update your own status and post comments or likes to the statuses of others.
- View recent photo albums from your friends and family members.
The app is free (iTunes Store) now until the end of May so it is an ideal time to go and try it. After looking at the app via Sobees website it certainly looks like it has a unique design. They described it as a newspaper-like interface and it certainly looks that way. It seems a great app to keep in touch with all your friends and family.
