Facebook iPad App Hiding in the iPhone

What ever happened to that Facebook app for the iPad that was mentioned months ago? It’s hiding in the latest version of the iPhone app. TechCrunch discovered a hidden code for the iPad app while poking around version 3.4.4 of the Facebook iPhone application.

While the dodgy app for the iPhone was met with negative criticism, TechCrunch says the iPad version is “very good.” The navigation got a thumbs up, and the tech blog seemed to like the left-side navigation system, overlay menus, and photo features. It’s still unclear when the iPad app will be officially launched, but people with jailbroken devices can start checking it out if they know what they’re doing.

Over a month ago The New York Times was briefed about the upcoming Facebook app, which was personally being overseen by CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg later confirmed that Facebook had several launches planned in the coming weeks. With the discovery of the hidden code, it’s probably safe to assume that a release is not too far away.
