Facebook Launches App Center – We Take a Look
Facebook, the social media giant launched its own App center. This Facebook App center is just like app recommendation portal which features iOS apps, Android apps, also other web apps. We can see that Facebook has taken a similar step to like that of Apple and Google. Like, we have Google Play store and also Apple’s app store where we can find apps along with their description and ratings and the same is with the Facebook App center.
Facebook App Center review:
Facebook Company formally launched this app center on 7th June. If we look more into this app center, then in simple words, it’s an app recommendation engine and comes with a social rating system built directly into Facebook’s website and mobile apps. Facebook declared its plans to launch its app center in may, and finally the app center has now rolled out officially for 900 million Facebook users. Currently the Facebook App center feature with about 600+ apps which are separated by several categories like games, music, sports, etc. Well, the number of apps will grow drastically in a short span of time.
Just like all app stores, Facebook App Center does have description and details about each application along with screenshot of the same.
In Facebook app center, you’ll get suggestions of apps based on app ratings and what your friends play. And you will also get paid apps here. You will also get most loved high quality apps at app center based on user ratings and engagement.
The app center looks quite similar to those of Apple and Google counterparts, but it works in a different way. As several Facebook Apps are actually iOS and Android Apps with Facebook integrations, it will refer users to other app stores to download them. Facebook will sell some of the apps directly from the App center. But the Facebook App Center will also host links to apps found in Apple’s iOS App store, the Google Play store for Android devices and web-based apps that use Facebook’s Connect login platform.
The unique feature that I like about Facebook App center is the ‘send to mobile’ feature, which allows you to send apps to your mobile which you discover on Facebook’s website and as you send on your mobile device where the apps will automatically be downloaded and installed from the App Store or Google Play.
The launch of Facebook App Center is of course good news for developers who persistently look for latest ways to increase visibility of their apps, and it would be fascinating to see how well it works for them.
