RUMOR: Facebook to Announce iPad App at ‘f8’ on September 22

Posted on August 28, 2011 by

Facebook is holding its developer event, known as f8, on September 22nd. It’s expected they will announce a Facebook app for the iPad during the even.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had previously said the iPad didn’t fit the category of a mobile device, and a dedicated client would not be made for it. But with the huge popularity of the iPad and the lack of touch-friendliness on Facebook’s website, it looks like he is changing his mind. It was discovered in July that an iPad client was hidden inside an update to Facebook’s iPhone app, and for a short time it could be hacked to work on the iPad.
