Do Twitter/Facebook apps make sense on an iPad?

in iPhone edited January 2014
I'm looking forward to Saturday delivery of my iPad, thinking about what an iPad version of Facebook app might be like.

And then it hit me--why bother?

The 1024x768 size of the screen means the normal web site would work fine on an iPad. Why even bother with an app?

I guess mobile Safari doesn't let you upload photos (does it??), so that's a benefit.

But using the browser-based version of will let me get to lots of features that don't work on the iPhone app (sending a message when accepting a friend, sharing other posts, etc.).

What do you think?

    I thought the same thing. The Facebook functionality of the web version will be great on a screen that size. I wouldn't even bother downloading the iPhone version of the app. If they released an iPad version that added a lot of functionality, then i would consider but I don't see why they would.
