For the past seven days, I have been using Facebook Home, the social network’s home replacement for Android, which pushes people ahead of apps. So far, the only device which comes pre-installed with Facebook Home is the HTC First, which in reviews around the web has been praised for allowing the user to switch back to stock Android, which doesn’t sound too good for the launcher. After one whole week of using only Facebook Home, here are my views.
Facebook have just announced ‘Home’, a new launcher app for Android which makes connecting with your friends easier and quicker than it has ever been before.
In the past few years, applications have been released to do just about everything you could possibly want. Applications for fun, productivity and even survival are popular on each platform’s appropriate app market place, but in the case of Android, my favourite apps are Home Replacements. Android is the only mainstream operating system which allows you to change the user interface through something so simple as an application, and Action Launcher Pro is a prime example of how to tweak Android for the better.
