iPad Review: Sobees Facebook app

This image described by iPad, apps, sobees facebook, Sobee

Sobees known for their twitter client, has ventured into the iPad with a native Facebook app. While we were hoping for an official app from Facebook to match their iPhone outing, this is just as good.

It’s smart, snappy and stylish, with a cool magazine style layout. It looks great in landscape and portrait mode. All it’s missing is allowing the user access to Facebook groups and pages that they moderate and it would be a complete winner.

The app lets you view friends‚Äô status updates, wall posts, pictures, videos and links. You can peruse your friends‚Äô recent photo albums, manage events and birthdays in a striking calendar view. 

You can also update your status, comment and ‘like’ events very easily from the app. It even gives you a 'Breaking News' story of a friends recent update.

The app is even free for the first month!
