Facebook’s been planning an HTML5 app center to try to tackle Apple’s App Store for quite a while, and now Techcrunch has what they say is the first shot of what it’ll look like in the official Facebook iOS app. In fact, we might all see it as soon as tonight, at an app-themed press event to be held in San Francisco.
Facebook on their part is playing mum, saying: “Since we announced the App Center to developers last month, we’ve been testing it with a small percentage of users. We have no further details to announce at this time.”
For me, all I can say is if App Center requires me to load Facebook’s execrable app, I doubt Apple has anything to fear.
