Facebook Release iPad App and Lead Engineer Quits to Join Google

Many Facebook users have been asking about Facebook for iPad. Finally it’s here and is available free from the Apple app store from your iPad or iPad2. The new app puts the full Facebook experience right at your fingertips. It’s very fun to use seeing as you can swipe through albums, pinch to zoom photos and flick through your news feed all from the palm of your hands.

Lead Engineer Quits Facebook

The lead engineer of the Facebook iPad app, Jeff Verkoeyen, has quit and joined Google. He announced on his blog that the app was feature rich and ready to be released back in May, but Facebook kept pushing it back another 2 weeks, and then another 2 more. He thought his App would never be released and was extremely angry seeing as he devoted so many working hours into it.
