Topic of this post is about the new Home Application from Facebook. Want to be smarter by using your Smartphone? Than just use Facebook. FB has introduced last week Home App as the new interface that the social network has designed for Android Smartphone’s. Instead of apps or widgets, Home puts Facebook pictures and posts front and center. The family of apps that puts your friends at the heart of your Smartphone.
The FB says that with the Home App, everything on your phone gets friendlier. From the moment you turn it on; you see a steady stream of friends’ posts and photos. Upfront notifications and quick access to your essentials mean you’ll never miss a moment. And you can keep chatting with friends, even when you’re using other apps. It’s all part of Facebook Home, there’s no other phone, app or operating system like it.
Cover Feed: Just glance at your phone for the latest posts from friends.
Friends fill the screen:
As soon as you turn on your phone or press the home button, you see a stream of posts from News Feed. Cover feed puts the spotlight on whatever friends are sharing such as photos, status updates, links and more.
Get notifications where you need them:
Notifications about calls, events, Facebook updates and other apps appear on your home screen and stick around until you need them (All notifications are available on the HTC First. The free Home download includes Facebook notifications.). Profile pictures and app icons make it easy to see what’s what. Tap the stuff you’re into, swipe away the stuff you’re not.
Chat Heads and Messenger: Keep chatting, even when you’re using other apps
All your conversations in one spot:
Send and receive texts and Facebook messages in one place. Profile pictures make your group chats and one-on-one time more personal.
Chat from anywhere on your phone:
Jump in and out of conversations while you do other things, like watch videos or browse the web. Drag chat heads where you want them.
App Launcher: Get right to Facebook, Instagram and other essentials.
Choose what goes where:
You start with a couple of screens: an app launcher with the essentials, and a list of all your apps. Drag your favorites to your app launcher so you can quickly get to what you need. Add more screens as you need them.
Drag your picture wherever you want to go:
Move your profile picture to quickly get to all of the important stuff on your phone. Drag left to see your messages or start chatting with a friend. Drag up to open your app launcher or post to Facebook. And drag to the right to go back to whatever app you used last.
