Facebook App Centre Launched To Make App Discovery A Social Experience by JideTheBlogger(m): 8:52am On Jun 08, 2012
There's more to Facebook apps than 'Angry Birds' and Pinterest, but many users wouldn't know that because there hasn't been a good, central way to find them. Facebook Inc. is trying to change that. Facebook began to roll out its App Center last night to its nearly 1 billion users, so they can find games and other applications with social components more easily.

The App Center, available on Facebook's website and on Apple and Android mobile devices, will recommend apps to users based on their interests, the types of apps their friends like, or the apps they have liked in the past. The new App Center will initially feature about 600 Facebook apps, mostly games, reviewed by the company to meet its quality standards.Games, such as Zynga's 'CityVille' and Electronic Arts' 'The Sims,' are the most popular types of apps on Facebook.

Facebook said that on mobile devices, the App Center won't compete with other app stores, such as Apple's or Google's. Rather, the App Center will send users to those other stores to download the programs. People can also get mobile apps from their regular computers by using a feature called 'send to mobile.'

The App Center, which Facebook announced last month, was rolled out to U.S. users last night and will be available to everyone else over the coming weeks.
