Facebook’s new App centre, a site that helps you find cool new apps for your smartphone and the web, is now live. The goal is to help you find the best apps to use within Facebook or on your smartphone. App centre will give you recommendations based on what your friends are using.
Most of these apps have been around for a while, but now that the new App centre makes it easier to discover and connect them with Facebook, we decided to take at another look at some of our favourites.
This role-playing game takes place in Marvel's universe. (Just like the Avengers movie.) You take command of popular Marvel characters such as Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, etc. and battle against the evil Loki's minions.
If you're a big Hulu user, this app will let you share what you watch with you Facebook friends. It's also a good way to discover new stuff to watch based on what your friends are watching.
Fandango isn't just about buying movie tickets. It's also a very powerful recommendation engine for movies. If you connect Fandango to Facebook, you'll be able to share the movies you've seen, reviews, etc. with your friends. That's a really cool way to discover movies you're missing out on.
Goodreads is a social network for book-lovers. You can create queues of books you want to read, rate your favourite books, and get recommendations from friends. Connecting Goodreads to Facebook gives you an even better chance to discover cool stuff to read.
Foursquare recently got a hefty update that focuses on venue recommendations. That's a great reason to link the app to your Facebook account. Letting your Facebook friends know where you go makes it a lot easier to discover new places.
Airbnb is a platform that lets you rent out your home, spare bedroom, apartment, etc. to people who need a temporary place to crash. The app is immensely popular, and connecting to Facebook will make your search a lot easier.
