Review Facebook Home

Sergei Petrov
Facebook Home - a new proprietary shell-launcher for Android-powered smartphones from the world's largest social network Facebook . The shell is made in order to bring the integration of mobile devices with social networking to the next level.
For the first time the shell was shown along with the announcement of a new corporate smartphone HTC First, which was developed in cooperation directly by HTC and Facebook. The main idea of ​​the application - it's simplicity and minimalism, as well as access to the chat in just one click.


The program has a very pleasant and pretty fresh interface. Classic desktops here as there are none, the whole free area is the latest news. Instead of changing desktops are replaced by the news, but rather serve as background images attached to them.
At the bottom of the screen shows the large round button with your photo, which, when pressed performs several functions. If you click it, and take up, then open all the programs, to the left - will open Messenger, and to the right - recently launched application.
The most beautiful element of the application - this incoming message. They are opened in the form of beautiful round icons with pictures of friends that appear on your screen, no matter where you are. By clicking on this icon, you will immediately find yourself in a dialog box, and you can immediately send a response. Incoming notifications from other applications, such as Gmail, are displayed in a beautiful bands middle of the screen.
The menu is fairly standard applications interface with the familiar pages. Differences here are three buttons at the top that allow you to quickly change the status, take a photo or Check-In.

Features Facebook Home for Android:

  • New unique interface;
  • News and photos of your friends on the home screen;
  • Instant notification;
  • Like with a double-click;
  • Rapid transitions to Facebook, Instagram and more.
To view the application you must have the latest version of Facebook and Facebook Chat. Only then can you set the shell itself, which work immediately after login.
The main and obvious drawback - it's complete uselessness of the program in the absence of the Internet, but now it is very rare when everyone is sitting on unlimited tariffs.
Summary. Facebook Home - an interesting and unique of its kind launcher for Android, which is definitely find its fans, but the degree of convenience yields virtually all of its competitors. Sufficiently bold and logical move on the part of the largest social network. We'll see what comes of it.
