We have always been fans of Angry Birds and Pinterest, the most popular apps that Facebook has. But there are still users who are not familiar with these apps. The reason why? It is because there is no central location to where you can find them.
Now, Facebook finally comes up with a solution. They now began to roll out there latest App Center to its nearly 1 billion users. With this, users would now be able to find games, application and social utilities easier and quicker.
The App Center is now available on Facebook’s website and can be accessed on Apple and Android devices. The good thing is, the App Center itself will offer you apps based on your interests, apps your friends like, or apps they have liked in the past.
Facebook changed the way to introduce trending apps. They disregarded the old way wherein your friends send you annoying requests wherein the apps they invited you doesn’t even pick your interest.
The newly established Facebook App Center will feature about 600 apps, mostly games. The following apps are reviewed by company to ensure quality to the users. Expect games such as Zynga’s “CityVille” and Electronic Arts’ “The Sims,” to be there as they are the most popular games as of now in Facebook.
Of course, there are many useful apps there to and not just games. Apps concerning music-listening services such as Spotify to what-you-just-ate tools such as Foodspotting are there too to satisfy your app needs.
“We spend all day, every day building a platform (so that) great social games and apps can exist,” said Matt Wyndowe, product manager for apps and games at Facebook. But when he is questioned where to find the apps, he said this: “Up until now, we haven’t had a great answer to that question.”
Facebook is not intending to compete with Apple and Google on mobile app stores. But rather, the will just send users to other app stores to download the program. Users will also be able to get mobile apps from their PCs by using the feature called “send to mobile.”
The App Center was already rolled out last Thursday night on US time. Other countries besides US will be able to access it over the coming weeks. Just standby and watchout.
