Tonight we have heard that Facebook will be launching what they will call the “App Center”. This Facebook App Center will be a feature that will assist users in finding new mobile apps for their respective device that can be used with friends. From what we understand the App Center will only contain what they call “high quality” apps.
Facebook will be measuring the quality of the app based on user reviews and input by users of the app itself. The app recomendations will also be personalized from user to user to be sure that everyone gets the most out of the recomendations. On top of this you wqill be able to see the apps that your friends are using to give you the opportunity to get in on the same ones.
The Facebook App Center will be added to the Facebook mobile app for both Android and iOS, and of course will be able to be found on Facebook.com as well. Once you find the app based on the recomendation and reviews you can download the app. The download will actually take you to the Apple App Store or Android Market based on the device. If you are looking through the apps on Facebook.com you can send the link to your phone for later downloading as well.
We are likely to see more attempts at new services based on Facebook’s recent IPO fail but this one seems to have been in the monds for a while. The Facebook App Center has already started rolling out to users and will start out showing around 600 apps. The new App Center feature is supposed to get to all Facebook users within the next few weeks. If you play with it let us know what you think in the comments below.
