HP builts own Facebook app for the webOS TouchPad.Video.
HP webOS TouchPad will launch in July 1st with their own made Facebook application and it seems is the first official Facebook app world´s made for a tablet. Meaning, there is no other OS for tablets that have made an own Facebook application, Blackberry Playbook was made with the help of Facebook platform and Adobe.
Along the left rail, which pops in and out, you’ve got your main navigation: Newsfeed, Messages, Events, Places, Friends, and Photos.
The Newsfeed can be viewed in both a stream view or a more tablet-friendly tile view. The tiles make better use of typography and images.
Also notice the addition of Places and Photos to the left rail navigation. Places opens up a map with nearby activity and the ability to check in. Photos displays your Facebook photos in a tiled album view. Profiles also highlight people’s photos. You can toggle between their wall, info, and photos.
The app really takes advantage of the extra screen real estate to good effect. Photos and Places especially shine.
