Remember the pre-released Facebook application for the iPad, which was initially discovered Sunday night and widely reported on Monday? Don’t get too attached to it.
Toronto computer engineering student Marvin Bernal tweeted Monday afternoon that the social network had blocked logins to the app, saying, “It appears that Facebook has disabled logins through the ‘iPad’ version. Time to wait for an official release,” according to Computerworld.
As originally reported by MG Siegler of TechCrunch, the iPad app was discovered within the code for Facebook’s iPhone app, but iPad owners who wanted to install the unofficial app had to jailbreak their devices, with The Next Web providing now-obsolete step-by-step instructions on how to do so and install the app.
According to TechCrunch, the app will still launch, with new users being rejected at the login screen, and “existing” users, like Siegler, having access to limited functionality, with features like notifications having been disabled.
