Tag - App Center
Following shortly after a leak, Facebook has officially launched its long-awaited App Center. The portal is mainly meant to guide people to Facebook-connected iOS and Android apps -- though web apps are highlighted as well -- and currently lists over 600 titles. "Send to Mobile" buttons are featured on app pages, the Center redirects people to the App Store or Google Play as necessary.
Facebook's forthcoming App Center portal will feature a "Send to Mobile" option, allowing users to purchase apps on a desktop or tablet and have a notification delivered to their phones. The feature duplicates capabilities already found in Google and Apple's app stores, but uses Facebook's notification system. The Send to Mobile option is expected to be ready in time for the App Center's launch later this year.
