Facebook photos are also bigger and easier to scroll though and new swanky new app allow users upload self made videos straight on to their wall. 

Slight tweaks for tab configurations have also been made – games, apps, groups and lists are in the left-hand menu, meaning less digging around and messages and notifications are at the top of the screen.

“With the iPad app, you get the full Facebook experience, right at your fingertips,” and it’s fun to play around with, The Social Network said today.

“Use your fingertips to scroll through your News Feed. Give the screen a swipe to page through albums. Pinch a picture to zoom in.”

The app comes with a bunch of other new features: instant chat with friends, watch high-res videos inline, record HD video and stream to Airplay devices, and also let you play games and use apps in full-screen mode.
