Finally, Facebook for Andoid gets split screen support for tablets

I remember writing a post about the laziness of Android app developers compared to those on iOS. One of my gripes then (back in 2012) was how many Android apps do not have landscape support in tablets. Facebook and Twitter were two culprits then. It has taken three years since then for the Facebook for Android app to get split screen support in landscape mode. And it isn’t even full implementation. The split screen layout only exists when viewing your timeline. In other menus, it’s back to the same old single column.

Anyway, half bread is better than none. Facebook for Android finally has some measure of split screen support for tablets. Hurray!


  1. Facebook always been the type to implement on the feedback it gets from its users over time,can hardly knock them for their improvements to the social network. ,
