To showcase the best apps of the web social giant Facebook has launched its own ‘App Centre’ today. The most celebrated social networking site will sell its own apps through the store, said Facebook engineer Aaron Brady on the company blog.
“Today, we’re announcing the App Center, a new place for people to find social apps. The App Center gives developers an additional way to grow their apps and creates opportunities for more types of apps to be successful,” Facebook wrote in a note with the title ‘Introducing the App centre.’ “In the coming weeks, people will be able to access the App Center on the web and in the iOS and Android Facebook apps. All canvas, mobile and web apps that follow the guidelines can be listed. All developers should start preparing today to make sure their app is included for the launch.”
Users of Facebook App Centre will have exclusive apps like Draw Something, Pinterest, Spotify, Battle Pirates, Viddy, and Bubble Witch Saga and so on.
“Everything has an app detail page, which helps people see what makes an app unique and lets them install it before going to an app.
Success through the App Centre is tied to the quality of an app. We use a variety of signals, such as user ratings and engagement, to determine if an app is listed in the App Centre. To help you [developers] monitor user feedback, we are also introducing a new app ratings metric in Insights to report how users rate your app over time,” added Facebook.
