Facebook App store arrives in the UK
Facebook has started rolling out its Apps store marketplace internationally, and have launched a version for UK users on Friday morning 6th July 2012.
Facebook’s App store centre launched in the united states early last month. It’s similar to Apple’s, Google’s Aapp store. Allowing users to browse apps by category, such as Games or Sports, and filter to show apps that are available via the web, mobile or both. Apps are recommended based on collective ratings, personal recommendations and what’s trending.
More than 600 apps are featured on the App Center. The Apps are not new and are able to sync with your Facebook account.
What has changed? Well now you can go to Facebook.com/appcenter and choose apps you want to download on your smart phone. Those apps then show up as notifications in your Facebook mobile app. Click the notification and it will take you to the regular app store on your phone so you can download the app in question. But you still need to go back to the Facebook app to authorize the app you just downloaded.
