Facebook Home has finally been released, although not without its problems. I’ve been monitoring several forums who have been keeping an eye on the release of the launcher, and at the moment there are still some issues.
Facebook Home has been dominating a lot of technology news headlines over the past few days, following it’s announcement last week. The Android launcher is due for an official release on a handful of devices this Friday, the 12th of April. However, the application APK files have been leaked onto the internet today, and are available to install right now on a number of unsupported devices, including the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
Facebook is set to launch their Android launcher ‘Home’ in just a matter of days, so to get people excited for it, they have launched the product’s first official advert.

The Twitter application for Android was updated last night, bringing an updated UI with is better suited to Android’s ‘Holo’ design guidelines.
Facebook have sent out invites to another event, this time teasing a ‘new home on Android’. This has once again sparked speculation that we’ll soon have a Facebook phone in our hands, even though the last attempt at a Facebook phone didn’t work so well.
Nobody really knows what to expect at with the new Facebook phone, other than it’s thought it will be made with HTC again.
The event might not be to announce a new phone at all. Personally, I’m rooting for a new Android application, although it seems unlikely that the company would release an updated app for Android and leave the iOS crowd out of the loop.
As of yesterday, an update to Google+ is available to be downloaded in the Google Play Store. The update brings a number of small user interface tweaks to make the overall use of the app a much more pleasurable experience.
Windows 8 users can finally get the official Twitter experience, following the company’s launch of a dedicated app for the platform earlier today.
Last night, Facebook revealed a new design to the News Feed, and it’s extremely impressive.
