According to the report by American technical blog Mashable, FaceBook will officially announce FaceBook iPad apps on Apple iPhone 5 release conference on October, 4, 2011. In addition to FaceBook iPad apps, it is predicted that FaceBook will also announce iPhone apps revised version as well as a mobile apps market bases on HTML5.
At the beginning of this year, it is reported that FaceBook is going to release iPad apps. As a matter of fact, the development of FaceBook apps has been finished for a long time. Some people say that the delay of FaceBook iPad apps lies in that the relationship between FaceBook and Apple has become tense during the past two years. For example, FaceBook Connect cancelled the link to Apple music social network Ping, because Apple did not confirm FaceBook that it would take up the bandwidth of FaceBook.
There has been rumor that FaceBook should be integrated into Apple iOS mobile operating system , but due to the inconformity on cooperation details, Apple finally chose to integrate the miniature blog Twitter to the latest generation iOS 5 operating system.
But with the goal to beat Google, Apple and FaceBook is gradually to take what they need from each other: Apple is without social platform while FaceBook is with mobile platform. And the sign the two companies reach to the top is that FaceBook will announce iPad apps on iPhone 5 release conference.
There has been report that FaceBook has established a mobile platform service plan called “Spartan Project”, with the aim to challenge Apple iOS platform and the relevant mobile services. “Spartan Project” employs the standard technology based on HTML5 and its target user group is mobile phone users. But the latest news shows that Apple has helped FaceBook on this project.
