Apple iPad Official App On Its Way From Facebook?

It appears there is a great deal of speculation surrounding social networking site Facebook and Apple’s iOS platform lately, we’ve already heard rumour that Facebook is secretly working on a photo sharing app for the iPhone, followed by a covert project called Project Spartan that will apparently rival the Apple App Store, and now the latest rumour is Facebook is associated with an official app for the Apple iPad.

According to 9to5 Mac, the New York Times is reporting Facebook is in the process of delivering an official Facebook app for Apple’s iOS tablet, and have been working on said app for the last year.

The word is the Facebook iPad app has so the rumour says been overseen by Mark Zuckerberg, and has been “carefully designed and optimised for the tablet,” according to a Facebook employee.

Apparently developers have overhauled Facebook Groups and Facebook Chat for the iPad app and apparently “goes beyond” current features found on the Facebook website by enabling Apple iPad users to take images and video and upload to Facebook right from the tablet’s cameras.

And unnamed source that has apparently seen the iOS app in action has said, “The photo and video experience is amazing, offering full resolution and full-screen images.”

The word on availability of the new official Facebook app for the Apple iPad is that the app is expected to see launch in the “coming weeks.” So there you go, if all turns out to be true iPad users can expect an official Facebook app to play nice on their tablet quite soon, so who’s excited?
