Facebook are said to be planning to “launch something awesome” next week in the mobile space, which can only truly mean one thing; the first official Facebook app for Apple’s iPad looks to be just over the horizon.
Though there’s no official line on what’s to be revealed, it’s not too difficult to figure out. Facebook recently revealed that an iPad app had been in the works for over a year, and with Zuckerberg telling collected journalists that Facebook’s Seattle office (where the company work on mobile developments) have something very interesting to reveal it’s a pretty safe bet on it being the iPad app.
Facebook are also said to be developing a new photo-sharing application for the iPhone.
Despite their massive desktop web presence, Facebook’s mobile offerings to date have been a little lacklustre, lacking much of the functionality of their browser-based sibling. With Google’s recently revealed Google+ network offering a seamless mobile and desktop experience, it looks as though Zuckerberg’s team now realise they have to up their game.
