Facebook has unveiled a new initiative called App Center, which the social network describes as “a place to find social web, desktop, and mobile apps”. That includes any app on any platform that’s using Facebook’s open graph, including paid and free apps. The App Center will be accessed on Facebook’s website, as well as its iOS and Android apps. Each app will get its own page on the store, outlining what it does and how to install it. “Success through the App Center is tied to the quality of an app. We use a variety of signals, such as user ratings and engagement, to determine if an app is listed in the App Center,” explains the social network, which will provide analytics to developers showing how users are rating their apps. “Well-designed apps that people enjoy will be prominently displayed. Apps that receive poor user ratings or don’t meet the quality guidelines won’t be listed.”
