Facebook Unveils Own App Store

Facebook follows the footsteps of Apple and Google as it launched its own app store called App Center, starting with 600 apps. This is the latest effort by the company to boost its mobile business.

The Facebook app store is already operational. The social network has explained that the project started with 600 applications and that the service is available for both desktop and mobile devices equipped with iOS and Android operating systems.


The App Center, which was announced last May, is used not only to inform the user of new apps, but also to encourage developers to sell their own applications. Zynga Games, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are among the first applications available.

“All applications will store images and a detailed description on them so that the user has all the necessary information before installation,” said Matt Wyndowe, Head of Facebook Applications and Games.

Users of this new platform can find their favorite applications through several sections: by contacts (for applications from your friends), by category (in the best qualified, best-selling or trends), or personal recommendations (recommended applications). Once the user selects an application, he will be sent to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
