The facebook app ***** on the iPad! the iPhone version of it is waay too small and when you try to make it biger it's all blurry and stuff! I am very disappointed! Does Apple intend on making an app in reasonable proportion for the iPad???

I know that a lot of apps do not have conducive specs for the iPad..but come on!!

    Apple doesn't write the Apps (for the most part - they do have some of their own). Facebook would write the App for facebook!

    Isn't Facebook responsible for doing that? Tell them you want it.

    How do you go about telling them where it may actually do something? Do they have a request/complaints page?

    This is truly annoying. How can Facebook actually not have this app produced yet?

    Sad to say, since I love my iPad, development is pathetically lacking. I certainly hope this isn't apple holding back developers. We need useful apps.

    You don't need a Facebook app on the iPad. Just use the web page as someone else suggested.

    If there is an iPad version of Facebook, I can't find it in the App Store. The only one I can see is the iPhone version, which, as the original poster points out, is kind of ugly on the iPad. I have no problem accessing FB through Safari but sometimes the app is useful.

    I use the iPhone app for uploading photos to FaceBook. It's easier and you don't have to email the photos to your account. You can also chat if you wish too. You can't chat using the ipad Safari version. Lastly, you can see responses at a fast glance. If I remember right, it' free.

    If I want to use the web version I use Perfect Browser and change Safari to emulate the desktop version. This gives you chat and let's you see who is on line.

    Could you tell me more about this and how you do this?

    You can do the something with Safari on yor desktop. Open Safari... Safari Menu... Safari Prefernces... Advance Tab... Check, Show Develop menu in menu bar.

    Safari Menu... Develop... User Agent... Pick the browser you want to emulate. When you go to a web site the site will think your using the browser you picked and will display the web page accordingly. Some sites want you to use a particular browser, for example... banks. Sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn't. Basically, you are fooling the web site...

    With Perfect Browser you have the same preference setting, it's called web rendering. It has the same browsers you can pick from with one addition, Crome. Perfect Browser has some neat things like, full screen and tabs to name two. It's just as fast as Safari that comes with the iPad. I more conformable with Safari and I use it mainly.
