Tired of accessing Facebook using browser on your iPad ? We have found a way to get rid of it.
In the recent Facebook iPhone app update (version 3.4.4), it has been discovered that it contains a hidden code for the Facebook iPad app, which is expected to be released soon.(There is no official iPad app for Facebook released till now)
To make the app work and also to get rid of the web-only Facebook experience on your iPad before the official release, our friends at Techcrunch have come up with a how-to tutorial. Here is what you have to do:
Note: Make sure that your iPad is Jailbroken.
Step 1: Download and Install the Facebook app for iPhone on your iPad. (Download Link)
Step 2: Open Cydia —>Search for iFile and Install it.
Step 3: After you are done with the installation, open iFile. Go to: Applications > Facebook > Facebook.app. Locate a file named ‘Info.plist’ and open it in the Property List Viewer.
Step 4: In the next step, scroll down until you find the string of text UIDeviceFamily. Tap it.
Step 5: In the upper right corner of the screen, you will find a ticket system with default setting ‘1’, change it to ‘2’.
Step 6: Go Back to the Home screen by pressing the home button and reboot your device.
That’s all you have to do. Run the app and enjoy the experience. 😉
