Facebook Messenger gets a native iPad version


Facebook Messenger makes the most sense on a phone, but plenty of people still want to chat on their tablets -- and apparently, Facebook knows it. The social network has just updated Messenger for iOS to support the iPad, letting you carry on a conversation without having to either dig through chats in the main Facebook app or rely on third-party titles. The iPad interface mostly behaves like a super-sized version of what you see on an iPhone, although you miss out on a handful of recent feature additions, like tap-and-hold video capture and the split-screen selfie mode. There's no corresponding native interface for Android tablets just yet, although the iPad refresh suggests that one might be on the horizon.
