Launches Facebook iPad applications

The new version of Facebook for Apple's popular iPad tablet has been rumored on industry blogs for months. Facebook said the iPad app will offer enhanced photo-viewing capabilities and messaging capabilities.

The company said it would require third-party app developers to support Credits in the mobile versions of their games that interact with Facebook.The rule only applies to games aimed at users of the Facebook website developed using HTML5 technology and accessed through a standard browser.Facebook said the specialized iPhone app version of its service would not support its Credits currency, in accordance with Apple's terms of service.

The dual announcements plug two key holes in Facebook's product offerings and could provide a way for Facebook to generate revenue from the more than 350 million users who access its service on mobile devices every month.
