UPDATE: It's out! Go get it!

The waiting is over, folks, as Facebook has let us know that Facebook for iPad is set to hit the App Store today! It appears as though it will be available as an update to the Facebook for iPhone app.

In addition to an interface designed for the iPad, some of the app's great advantages over the web is that you can chat and play Facebook games.

I complained nearly a year ago about Facebook not having an iPad app, and it's great to see them finally release one. I sure as heck can't wait to get my hands on it!

  • Enjoy bigger, better photos - Your photos take on new life on the iPad. They're big, high-res and easy to flip through—like a real photo album.
  • Focus on what matters - With less on the screen, it's easier to zoom in on your friends' photos, updates and stories.
  • Navigate anywhere, fast - Just tap, slide or pinch to get from one screen to another and back again in no time.
  • Never lose your place - Use simplified navigation to send a message, see your notifications or browse your bookmarks without switching screens.
  • Play games on the go - Play your favorite Facebook games wherever you are, and on a bigger screen.
  • Tap to send messages - A simple dropdown menu makes it easy to scan and send messages without visiting your inbox.

We'll let you know as soon as the update becomes available!
