launched their App centre last night.
App centre isn’t a traditional app store like the one on your iPhone or Android phone. Instead, when you select an app on Facebook and send it to your smartphone, you’re redirected to either the Apple App Store or Google Play store to download it.
Think of App centre as a recommendation engine, not a store.
The App centre is available on Facebook’s website, but instead of making you download another separate app, Facebook added the App centre to the sidebar of the current iOS and Android Facebook apps.
App centre is currently stocked with 600 apps that Facebook has deemed worthy of its promotion.
Visit the Facebook App centre now by heading here.
Now you're taken to the App Store. You can download the app from there. It's already integrated with Facebook.
Here's the popular VEVO music app. Since it already has a Facebook app, you can either view videos in your browser or take the experience mobile.
You can also view apps on the web by Top Rated, Trending, and Top Grossing. That's useful when you want to find the most popular apps. You can also view apps your Facebook friends are using, which makes it a lot easier to discover new apps.
