MediaPost.com revealed that Facebook is preparing to present its app for the iPad in the coming weeks. The New York Times cited sources that said the app has been in production for the past year and is currently going through final testing.
Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly been heavily involved in the development process of the Facebook app, which is expected to surpass the basic website features by allowing users to shoot and upload photos and videos with the iPad’s built-in cameras, in addition to including revamped Facebook Chat and Groups features.
Industry analysts believe that the new app should be a major boost to both Facebook and Apple. With 250 million Facebook users actively accessing the site on a mobile device, the convenience of an app optimized for iPads could influence potential tablet buyers to choose Apple over all others.
