Facebook iPad App Still Snagged in Negotiations - NYTimes.com

In June, I reported that the Facebook iPad application had been in the works for almost a year and was essentially complete. According to people briefed on Facebook’s plans at the time, the app was scheduled to be available in the Apple iTunes store a couple of weeks later.

It never appeared. No big announcement. No shiny new iPad application. Just silence.

The app, it turns out, had become the hostage of a tense negotiation between Facebook and Apple executives for a deal to further integrate Facebook into the next version of Apple’s operating system, iOS 5.
