Facebook iPad app finally available to social network junkies

At long last, it's here. The app that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg didn't want to give us is finally here — Facebook's official iPad app — is up for download and it's pretty polished.

iPad users have been waiting over a year and half for an official Facebook app. After several delays and leaks, Facebook quietly released its iPad app without any fancy press events.

Patience is a virtue, right? If full-screen Facebook apps and games, watching and recording HD videos, viewing high-res photos, online chat has you falling off the edge of your seat, then the Facebook iPad app is waiting for you.

The Facebook app is a free download and it's available on iTunes. We've only had a little bit of time to run it on our original iPad, but so far, we like it. It sure beats going to the full Facebook website every time through Safari.
