Facebook today announced their plan to launch their very own app store for all devices, all platforms and for all prices, to make the social app discovery as easy as possible. Although right now the app center was not available to every user, in the coming weeks they would be made available for both web and mobile users.
In mobile, for iOS, Android or mobile web the users can search and browse through apps available on Facebook app store and if they wants to install the app they would be redirected to either Apple’s App Store or Google Play to download the app. Also, Facebook insists the app developers to use Facebook login to increase their popularity through the social networks very own app store.
The developers who wants to list their apps on Facebook app store need to create a detail page for their apps, which will be showed to users as app description page. Also, for developers who creates the detail page and submits their app before May 18th will be given top priority on verification and listing them on app store.
Facebook also provides guidelines and tutorials to help the developers through the process of creating their app detail page and submitting their apps. For developers who are willing to offer paid apps on Facebook app store can register their apps through this form. If you are wondering what this paid apps is all about, then this is a new feature on Facebook where its 900 million users can pay for apps to use them on Facebook.com itself. Sure it not only will bring a lot of developers crowd towards paid apps but I hope that there will be some quality apps developed simultaneously.
