So you have your shiny new tablet in front of you, fire up the market, download the Facebook app, and then it hits you: this app sucks. It was meant for phones, not tablets. Wouldn't it be great if there were a Facebook app that was optimized for tablets? Yeah, that would be pretty rad... Oh, wait, there is! It's called FriendCaster Tab, and according to the developer, it's the first Facebook app optimized for tablets.

It covers all of the basics that you need out of a Facebook app, including status updates, access to the news feed, and the ability to like and comment friends' status updates.

It also offers a customizable background, so you can look at something pretty while feeding your social networking addiction.

This app is still under heavy development, as the developer notes that they'll be adding new features often. They've also opened the floor for suggestions on what you'd like to see incorporated into the app, so if you give it a shot, make sure to let them know what you think!

FriendCaster Tab is available now for free in the Android Market.
