Facebook iPad interface gets desktop-style sidebar in landscape mode

updated 01:11 pm EDT, Mon June 16, 2014

Shows events, trending content, games

Facebook is rolling out an update to its iOS app that will allow iPad users to better see content outside of their news feed, according to an official blog post. When in landscape mode, iPad users will see a right-hand sidebar styled after the one visible on Facebook.com. This includes a quick view of upcoming birthdays and events, and trending topics.

A unique addition is trending videos, displaying the most-shared clips "among your demographic," as Facebook explains. Also visible should be My Games and Popular Games sections. Facebook notes that for an iPad game to be listed in the app, a developer must register their title with Facebook, integrate Facebook Login if they don't have a Canvas app, and upload a video to the relevant App Details page in App Center.
