Best thing is there are no ads on this page and only things of importance are displayed. The search bar is very handy and allows finding pages, friends and other things easily. Though zooming is not possible while viewing a page on iPad, the Multitouch functionality of iPad allows you to scroll the page with finger tips.

Even chat on Facebook is supported by Friendly, which was launched by striking the icon of chat at the lower end on right side of the display. Once it is opened, the list of friends online will be displayed on left side of the screen. The remaining estate of the screen will display the chat which gives an enjoyable experience if chatting.

Though the work of Friendly is amazingly beautiful simulating Facebook for Apple’s iPad, it has some minuses too.
