Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the “iPad is not mobile” last year in response to a question about why there wasn’t a Facebook app for the iPad. And yet, note that third party apps for working with Facebook occupy the top three positions of Apple’s iPad social network apps category:
1. Friendly Plus for Facebook
3. Facebook Touch HD
There’s also a Chat for Facebook app at number 8 in the top 10 paid social networking apps for iPad list. If we expand the list to the top 20, there’s also Pica HD – Facebook Browser (#17), Tap to Facebook (#18), and VideoTime for Facebook (#20).
There sure seems to be a bit of demand for Facebook iPad apps. And, I’m sure that the developers of these third party apps hope Zuckerberg and Facebook stay out of the iPad app business.
