The free app, which has reportedly been close to completion since May, has been one of the most-requested apps for Apple's wonder-device, and its iPhone iteration is the most-downloaded app in the App Store's history.
"Use your fingertips to scroll through your News Feed. Give the screen a swipe to page through albums. Pinch a picture to zoom in. Whatever you're up to, using Facebook on your iPad just feels fun," Facebook's Leon Dubinsky wrote in the blog post announcing the app.
While details were immediately scarce, on Facebook's iPad app page the social network touted its "simplified navigation to send a message," a less cluttered interface and easier navigation given the iPad's 9.7-inch screen.

The app is available for free in Apple's App Store.
