Although it’s reported to have less than satisfactory performance, many people are interested in trying out Facebook Home. After nine days in Google Play Store, this app has managed to reach 500,000 number of downloads.
Keep in mind that the current Facebook Home app is exclusive to some high-end handsets such as the HTC First, HTC One, HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Based on reviews from users, most of them say that the app launcher has a gorgeous look with the ease for chat, but unfortunately does not support folders and widgets. Regardless of its popularity, one of the Google executives Eric Schmidt, don’t afraid if the launcher application will replace the default Android stock launcher which could lead to the loss of Google control. Eric said that the home launcher has become a huge support for the Android mobile platform.
