Default Facebook Home APK

http://androidos.in/2013/04/facebook...-for-download/

Decided I wanted to try this, grabbed the APK above. It's really good, makes for a very good launcher, even replaces my lock screen. I'm pretty shocked at just how good it is, Facebook did a good job here.

Sketchy as hell, no permissions required?

I thought they released FB Home on the US Play store?

I looked but didn't see it on my phone yet. Might just not have been pushed to the GS3.

I'll call you some other name instead. No permissions means it doesn't access anything sensitive on your phone. Really all it needs is your Facebook app and Facebook Messenger app. Those 2 have to be installed for it to work in the first place.

Yeah just noticed new permissions with the latest update. I didn't think FB Home could do any of the things they mentioned without increasing permissions at the very least.

More Facebook? No thank you. Why on earth is the app still not enough? And I don't even use that.

So seriously, why would anyone want Facebook Home? Sure plenty of us use Facebook, but it doesn't mean I want it to replace Apex Launcher or one of the many other excellent launchers available. In fact I read some reviews that while the interface is pretty good, it makes a lousy app launcher that lacks features common to nearly all other launchers. Gonna have to pass on this one, I do a hell of a lot more on my phone besides seeing the latest mobile uploads from my friends.

Other than the lack of widgets I love it. I'm sure they can certainly update it for some sort of widget functionality. Hell it allows me to use Facebook with no ads. That is not a negative! Most of the time I just have my phone on my bench at work with the screen unlocked scrolling through my friends posts. It's very nice.

Your Facebook app had ads?

I could see someone who is always on Facebook enjoying this "launcher". For me there is no way in hell I'd give up Nova for it. But again, I'm not on Facebook all the time.

Yes, sponsored posts strewn throughout the timeline. Hate that crap. Yours doesn't have that? It's a pretty common complaint now amongst my friends who use the Facebook app.

I mind it when it's as intrustive as Facebook is making it and when I can go to Google+ and get completely ad free. Free market at work. More and more of my friends are making the switch now too.

App is total crap for me. Hard to see pictures in full size, have to flip through so many pages to get to personal content, app launcher is a minimal afterthought. Don't get the point of it.

It seems like Google is putting a stop to apps that auto update themselves without going through the Play store.
