Facebook For IPad Adds Support For New Ipad Display; Still No Timeline

Facebook released a new version of its iPad application today, which adds support for the retina display on the new iPad.

Version 4.1.1 of Facebook for the iPad also addressed some bugs found in previous versions, and added support for eight new languages.

However, support for timeline was not one of the new features included with the updated app.

Here is the list of new features from the iTunes App Store:

  • You can go offline in chat.
  • The right profile picture appears for everyone.
  • Your list of friends always includes all of your friends.
  • In sets of photos, your name is displayed correctly.
  • Photos of people who like Facebook pages load correctly.
  • Your friend-request notification only lights up if you have a request.
  • You can change your language to Czech, Danish, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Norwegian (Bokmal), Portuguese (Portugal), or Thai.
  • If you’ve got a new retina iPad, you’ll see a crisp, high-resolution interface.

Readers: With all of the emphasis on timeline for both profiles and pages, are you surprised that the new profile is still not supported on Facebook’s iPad app?
