Facebook for iPad gets Retina update

Facebook for iPad gets Retina updateThe busy bees at Facebook are seemingly constantly churning out updates for their various apps, and this time it’s the iPad version getting some Team Zuckerberg loving.

Of course, predictably, compatibility with the new iPad’s Retina display is the main feature, but there are lots of other little tweaks too.

I installed the update the other night, and the change log for version 4.1.1 makes for amusing reading. It’s incredible that some of this stuff wasn’t corrected before release.

Behold:

  • You can go offline in chat
  • The right profile picture appears for everyone
  • Your list of friends always includes all your friends
  • In sets of photos, your name is displayed correctly
  • Photos of people who like Facebook Pages load correctly
  • Your friend-request notification only lights up if you have a request
  • You can change your language to Czech, Danish, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Norwegian (Bokmal), Portuguese (Portugal) or Thai
  • If you've got a new Retina iPad, you'll see a crisp, high resolution interface

Why would the wrong profile picture appear for people? And why would your friend-request notification light up if you didn’t have a request? Great stuff, Facebook. Great stuff.

Still no time line... I can't understand why they've not done this yet, it was on the iPhone app months ago.
