TechCrunch discovered that Facebook's iPad app has been hiding in the code for their iPhone app.

It looks like the iPad app may be released very soon. The best news is that with just a little effort you can run the iPad app now. I did a short post on this at my site - the app is looking great too.

The Log In screen looks very nice. But I keep getting a message that it is not able to log in now, and to try back later. I just logged into FB from the old App just prior to making the changes and it was fine.

Hmmm. I had no issues earlier today. When I saw your post I logged out and tried logging straight back in. I got the 'Login Failed' error - saying try again later.

Same problem here too, I wonder if they've blocked it on purpose!?

I also was able to make the tweak and had the app running earlier.
I too am getting the same error message.

According to @chpwn you need to be jailbroken and install FaceForward from Cydia for the app to work on iPad.

Got it working again. Wonder if they will be able to block this tweak too?

Or ... wild and crazy idea - maybe they could just work on actually releasing the flipping app instead of worrying about fighting these tweaks.

Ok, so I just got an iPad today, and the first thing I did was jailbreak it since it came with 4.3.3 still! So the jailbreak me tweak still worked. Anyway. I have now enabled faceforward on it, but, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to log out! I have been searching for quite a while... Anyone have a clue?
Thanks in advance

Slide the page to the right or tap where the 3 bars on top of each other are. This will show your username, news feeds, messages, events, etc...
Tap on the down arrow by your name and you will see the log off, security settings, etc... Area.
