Facebook is yet to release an official application for the iPad, and with its founder Mark Zuckerberg claiming the device was “not mobile,” we’re not likely to see one anytime soon. Zuckerberg wants us to use Facebook in our iPad’s web browser, which is fine for some, but others prefer a dedicated application that brings simple photo and video uploading, better chat support, and a user interface better suited to a touchscreen device.
It’s no wonder, then, that iOS developers have attempted to fill this void, and are slowly started to introduce their own third-party Facebook applications to the App Store. We’ve selected the best apps currently available for getting your Facebook fix on your iPad.
At the top of our must-have apps list this week is Free-App Hero, a fantastic app tracker maintained by experienced, professional game reviewers with an encyclopaedic knowledge of thousands of iOS apps. Unlike other free app recommendation services, Free-App Hero recommends only the best games, because they’re the best – not just because its developer paid them to recommend it.
Google’s latest application, Google Translate, is also in this week’s choice of applications. One of the best language translation services is now available on your iPhone, with the ability to translate words and phrases between more than 50 languages. It has some great features that make using Google Translate a pleasure on your iPhone.
Pillboxie is an excellent application for those that require regular medication, providing you with an incredibly simple way to create a schedule for your medication and get reminders when your pills are due. Never forget your pills again and discover the easiest method of managing your medication on your iPhone.
