Well, today's a really big day for Apple lovers because the new iOS 5 has come out for iOS devices. As I write, I am downloading the new iOS hoping it'll take less than 2 hours so I can spend the evening enjoying all the new features on my phone and iPad. However, let's not digress.

This post is all about Facebook which now is a Universal app to fit both the iPhone and iPad beautifully. It's been updated to do a much better job and give you a more enjoyable experience while networking with your friends and family. You may think that the Facebook app is old news, but the update has made it somewhat of a new one actually. I have always used some other Facebook-like app on my iPad and now I have a choice between the original and similar apps. Some of the features you can expect to see on Facebook are as follows:

Facebook for iPad:
- Enjoy bigger, better photos: Your photos are high-res and easy to flip through, like a real photo album
- Navigate anywhere, fast: Just tap, slide or pinch to move from one screen to another
- Play games on the go: Access your favorite Facebook apps and games, wherever you are
- Focus on what matters: Zoom in on your friends' photos, updates and stories
- Never lose your place: Share a photo, update your status or send a message without leaving News Feed
- See who's nearby: Check out the Nearby map to see what your friends are up to

Facebook for iPhone:
- Start a chat, keep up with friends' photos and status updates
- Look up a phone number
- Upload photos to Facebook

Specifically in Version 4.0, you will find the following changes:

- Improved search and browsing
- Games & Apps: Play games and access your favorite apps on the go
- Navigation: Send a message or see your notifications from any screen, and swipe to browse Facebook without losing your place in News Feed
- Bookmarks: Your groups, pages and apps are all in your left-hand menu, and the ones you use most are right on top
- Search: Search for anything on Facebook—people, apps, pages and more—without having to click around or switch views
- Security: A few updates to make the app more secure

I have been running Facebook on my iPad since yesterday to see if it works as solidly as it's cracked up to do. Yes, it has done a fine job. Nice resolution, easy navigation, clear and clean look makes me want to return to this app when I am ready to catch up with friends.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Enjoy a fresh, simple yet effective new feel to Facebook while sharing your life with family and friends."
