According to Facebook,” Home is the family of apps that puts your friends at the heart of your phone.”
Finally proving that Facebook is into people and not gadgets, Home makes everything on your phone friendlier.
Family Of Apps
“From the moment you turn it on, you see a steady stream of friends’ posts and photos. Upfront notifications and quick access to your essentials mean you’ll never miss a moment. And you can keep chatting with friends, even when you’re using other apps.
It’s all part of Facebook Home.”
With over a billion users worldwide, Facebook doesn’t see the sense of building a phone as that will go to just one percent of its total user population, reason a free download of its Facebook Home makes sense.
Facebook says the Home will be available on the Google Play Store April 12 or those who want can pre-order the HTC First™ which has the Facebook Home pre-installed.
Follow Everything, From Your Friends
Users will have live feeds on the cover, see latest posts from friends and on what they are doing, wherever they are. Facebook added that friends fill the screen,” As soon as you turn on your phone or press the home button, you see a stream of posts from News Feed. Cover feed puts the spotlight on whatever friends are sharing now—photos, status updates, links and more.”
Home also gives notifications about calls, events, Facebook updates and from other apps on the home screen and a user can choose to tap the stuff they want or swipe away the stuff they’re not into.
Whether downloaded from Google Play Store or on the pre-installed on the HTC First will have Facebook notifications, Chats, Messenger, texts and Facebook messages and the App Launcher will help anyone launch into other apps like Instagram and other apps. Facebook Home for Android will available for download from the Google Play Store on HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II.
