It took them a while but Facebook has finally updated their iPad application with Retina display graphics. The update also brings a few new features as well as minor bug fixes.

Considering how big Facebook is, I find it slightly disappointed they take so long to release such a simple update. Anyway, we have listed the full change log below for those of you interested…

  • You can go offline in chat
  • The right profile picture appears for everyone
  • Your list of friends always includes all your friends
  • In sets of photos, your name is displayed correctly
  • Photos of people who like Facebook Pages load correctly
  • Your friend-request notification only lights up if you have a request
  • You can change your language to Czech, Danish, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Norwegian (Bokmal), Portuguese (Portugal) or Thai
  • If you’ve got a new Retina iPad, you’ll see a crisp, high resolution interface

You can get the new update by loading your App Store app directly from your iPad.

  • can you see timeline now?

  • what about timeline? Very disappointing from such a company

    It’s no Timeline and it’s nothing about this on update page in Norway and u can update when u searching it but it just updates same version u have before 😉

  • SMH … Why bother updating the FB app if it still doesn’t support Timeline??? So now you have a “high resolution interface” for Facebook app v1.0 basically … SMH

  • They cannot fix the freakin cache issue with photo comments. I post a comment, someone replies, I click on the picture, and it only shows my comment. There is no slide to refresh, though there used to be, but it didn’t function.

    Considering how big Facebook is, I find it amazing that their iDevice apps are so poor. Buggy, shoddy, poor quality.

    To say it was coded by monkeys would be a bit unfair. To monkeys. It’s time Facebook spent a bit of money on hiring some decent devs to put together an app that works.

    Twitter for iPhone is a good example of an app that works as it should.
