Facebook Home now available for select Android devices


The day is here, Facebook Home is in the Google Play Store and ready to transform your existing handset into a Facebook Phone. That is, provided, you own one of the select devices with official support. So far the only models on the market with Facebook Home’s blessing are the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and HTC One X+. Looking ahead a few weeks there will also be support for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.


How many of you are willing to give this a shot for your home screen? How many of you are considering going with the HTC First and starting fresh with a new phone?

    Tried it, deleted it – no widgets and folders keep me from enjoying the Android experience. It’s even tough to get to the phone to make a call….which is what the device is really for….duh!

    Left Facebook behind when promoted posts kept showing in my timeline. Who seriously needs the main launcher dedicated to FB?
