Friended – the first native Facebook app for the iPad – has been updated this week, to Version 1.2. This is a pretty big update, despite the .x version number, with a number of good new features added. Here’s the full list of what’s new:

-Send messages!
-Greatly improved chat updating/refreshing
-Places check ins
-View, RSVP and create Events/Birthdays
-Pinch and zoom on Photos
-View and add tags to Photos
-Choose/Add album to upload pictures
-Deleting Posts
-Liking comments
-View who likes comments
-In-line, tappable links
-View "People You Might Know"
-Edit Font Size, Facebook Account Settings and Privacy Settings
-Misc bug fixes/optimizations

I updated the app last night and though I haven’t had a chance to try out all the new features yet, the ones I did look good and work well. Friended has been my favorite Facebook app on the iPad for some time now, and recently I’ve found I visit Facebook a lot more often, every day even – just because it’s easy and pleasant to do via the Friended app. That’s saying a lot for the app, because I’ve never been a big Facebook user.

Here’s an App Store link for Friended; it’s priced at $0.99.

Friended – First Native Facebook App for the iPad?

Friended Facebook app for iPad

Friended is a new Facebook app for the iPad. Its developers reckon it’s the first truly native Facebook app for iPad. Here’s its App Store intro:

Introducing the world’s first native Facebook iPad app, Friended. Designed from the ground up for the iPad, Friended has all the features of Facebook you know and love, designed into a gorgeous iPad interface.

-News Feeds
-Comments/Likes
-Photo Galleries
-Notifications
-Messages
-Chat
-Groups
-Quick view profile popovers

I’m not a heavy user of Facebook, but I have been using it a lot more just lately – so I gave this app a quick try earlier today. It’s quite nice to use and seems pretty quick at most things. It lets you see a lot of elements at once (e.g. live feed, recently posted pictures, friends, live chat bar with online friends shown etc) – and makes good use of popovers to let you interact with them easily.

Using live chat worked very well, and overall the app looks fast and solid so far – after just a brief trial run.

I think I like the interface of the Friendly app just a little better, but I’m going to use both apps a little more and then share some further thoughts.
