Facebook-Messenger-iconFacebook has really improved their mobile messaging experience. Their Facebook Messenger app combines traditional Facebook messages with Facebook chat messages in one simple to use, beautifully easy to read app. The app has been available on iPhones for a while, but now it’s available on iPad as well.

As gottabemobile.com reports, you could always use the iPhone version of the Facebook Messenger app on your iPad, but now that the same app has been upgraded and made for both device formats, it has some features that make the iPad experience even better.

For one thing, you don’t have to have the iPhone app in the middle of your iPad screen. Facebook Messenger on iPad is now a two pane experience similar to that of Apple’s own messenger app which allows you to view contacts on one pane while viewing your active messages on another.

One of the best parts of the Facebook Messenger app is that it finally brings a native Facebook chat experience to the iPad which allows you to seamlessly carry on your Facebook chat messages from your computer to your iPhone to your iPad. Much the same way iOS Messenger allows you to do with your fellow iOS owning contacts.

The app is free and available now in the iTunes app store. If you currently have Facebook Messenger for the iPhone installed on your iPad you should have an upgrade notification, take it.

Here’s a link to Facebook messenger in the iTunes app store.
