Facebook Home Download Mark Hits 1 Million
By on May 13th, 2013

A month after its release, Facebook Home has finally crossed the 1 million downloads milestone, after the company released a minor update few days back as a part of its “new every four week” cycle.

However, after the release of Facebook Home, the launcher was heavily criticized by users and was poorly rated in Google’s Play Store. In the first 10 days after its launch, the app was downloaded 500,000 times, however, it took twice as long to hit the other 500,000 downloads. The app has been awarded a cumulative two-star review from the more than 16,700 reviews on its Google Play page.

Facebook Home Ratings

Facebook product director Adam Mosseri said that the latest Facebook Home update includes the following changes and improvements:

  • Chat Heads improvements that make chatting more seamless with fewer steps.
  • A new, full-screen interface for your dock of apps that you can access more simply through a single swipe.
  • Subfolders within the app dock, kind of like you see in the iOS app launcher.
  • More “Blue’s Clues” pop-up prompts to educate users on new features.

Facebook has also said that it is carefully going through most of the valuable reviews and feedbacks given by users on Play Store and has promised that in the upcoming updates it would probably make the necessary changes that users are suggesting.
