Coming soon: Facebook App Center

Coming soon: Facebook App CenterIt’s long been rumoured that Team Zuckerberg planned to take app-related stuff to the next level, and this week it officially lifted the lid on the Facebook App Center.

In the next few weeks, the social networking giant’s 900 million+ user base will be able to use Facebook App Center to, er, find apps. What else?

The Facebook App Center will be available through the cyberweb, as well as the iOS and Android apps. Cue: moaning from the three people who have Windows Phones. Look, no one cares about you. Yet.

We’re promised that high-quality apps with high ratings will be prominently displayed, while those with poor ratings or that don’t meet the quality guidelines won’t be listed.

To qualify, apps need to have Facebook login compatibility, so that’s the likes of Draw Something, Pinterest, Spotify, Battle Pirates, Viddy, Bubble Witch Saga… and so on.

For the actual downloading action, users will be redirected from Facebook’s App Center to the App Store or Google Play.

“We are excited to give developers a new way to grow their apps with the App Center,” says Facebook’s Aaron Brady.

Jan, officially Facebook’s biggest fan, is already limbering up.

If they could just pull all the games that need facebook logins off the other stores and centralise them here it would be good.

Jan, I think we should set up a facebook page in honor of you, forcing your presence on the socialweb :)
