Facebook enthusiasts are often the victims of shabby development where mobile apps are concerned, suffering through either bulky and hard-to-use third-party apps or stiff, barely usable official apps.
One mobile device that offers a guaranteed fantastic Facebook experience is the Apple iPad 2 via a selection of premium third-party apps that are both intuitive and full of awesome features. Without further adieu, here are three of the absolute best Facebook apps for the iPad and iPad 2 (and iPad 3!).
Friended, an app freely available in the iTunes store, presents users with a unique column view, giving you the ability to see various important pieces of Facebook data at a glace. The minimal but rich interface has been designed especially for the iPad and so it makes perfect use of every pixel, providing a quick and easy-to-use experience.
If a clean and simple interface is important to you, especially if you have many friends to keep up with, the Friended Facebook app for the iPad is for you.
Widely hailed as the best Facebook app for iPad available, MyPad ranks well above its competition in iTunes. Offering all of the Facebook features available to you on the web, even including the often elusive chat and timeline tools not available on most Facebook apps, MyPad combines everything you need to quickly and easily interact with your social circle while on the go – as an added bonus, it even supports Twitter!
Boasting the simplest interface found on any Facebook app for any mobile device, FacelyHD for the iPad offers a quick, intuitive interface, allowing easy navigation around Facebook’s different tools and features even on the reduced screen space. Fully customizable through its ability to be skinned, FacelyHD also packs a punch with its good looks, boasting push notifications and built-in Facebook chat to set it apart from much of the competition.
It’s a short list for a reason, folks; these three Facebook apps for iPad blow the rest, even the official app, out of the water. While the app you choose to rely on will likely have much to do with your personal tastes and needs, you can be sure that any one of these apps will include the features you need to stay active on Facebook everywhere you go.
