Facebook App Center Leaks, Could Launch Tonight Through Official iOS App

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.

    This could easily be in preparation for the Facebook phone more than being used on other platforms such as ios and android

    The screen shot is pretty much what it looks like on my phone. Just a collection of the apps people already use on facebook just more easily located to discover. Instagram…Spotify…etc. Not that exciting unless something big is announced at their event
