Facebook iPad app discovered, jailbreak tweak available now
A report from TechCrunch confirms an official Facebook iPad app has been discovered buried in the code of the latest Facebook iPhone app update. Not only did they discover hints of the app, they were even able to run and use it (image above).
The Facebook for iPad app has a completely redesigned interface that takes advantage of the device’s larger display, with a left-side pane accessible via a gesture and the usual overlay menus we’ve seen in other iPad apps.
While getting the Facebook for iPad app to run on your device will take a little more than the average user is willing to go through, it's a simple process if your iPad is already jailbroken. Thanks to app developer and iOS jailbreaker “Chpwn,” you can now convert the Facebook iPhone app into the iPad version with a simple tweak called FaceForward. The tweak is available in the Cydia app store now via the BigBoss repo and is as easy as installing it and re-launching the Facebook app.
