It has been almost 24 hours since Facebook released Facebook Home in Google Play and the app has already been downloaded anywhere between 50,000 and 1,00,000 times. That is a decent figure to get an idea of how users are feeling about this much-hyped Android launcher from Facebook.
Well, the initial feedback is not very encouraging. As per the user reviews on Google Play, over 43 per cent of the reviewers have awarded the app just one star. 19 per cent of the users do think that the app is good and worth giving five stars, but such users are just one in five.
Being the first version, we can expect some hiccups here and there or the lack of some features, but still that is a poor response. As only the users who have installed the app can leave feedback on Google Play, these are some legitimate responses.
The downsides noted by the users include lack of widgets, lack for quick access to key phones features like PHONE app and other simply did not like the UI or got bored of it.
Have you installed the app till now, from Google Play or the APKs that are floating around? Do let us know your views in the comments.
