Facebook app for iPad gets Retina Display upgrade

Facebook for iOS has now joined other apps in supporting the new iPad’s Retina Display. An update was released today that brings the app to version 4.1.1, adding several minor improvements and bug fixes for all iOS users. However, those with the third-gen iPad, now get to enjoy a crisp interface with full screen images that take advantage of the high resolution 2,048 x 1,536 display.

Most of the improvements in version 4.1.1 of the Facebook app seem to be those that fix previous quirks. They include the ability to now go offline in chat, having all your friends included in your friends list, and other corrections to photos and names that may not have displayed properly before. Photos of people who like Facebook Pages now load correctly and the friend-request notification lights up now only if you have a request.

Additionally, there are new language options, which include Czech, Danish, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Norwegian, Portuguese, and Thai. And of course, for new iPad owners, you can now view crisp high resolution Facebook photos. The update is available for download now from iTunes.
