Facebook's App Center: the exciting bit is mobile

Last week Facebook announced that it would be creating its own version of an app store, aptly called the App Center.

Facebook software engineer Aaron Brady made the announcement via the company’s blog, explaining that: “In the coming weeks, people will be able to access the App Center on the web and in the iOS and Android Facebook apps”.

This will create a central place to find apps that use Facebook Open Graph, from Facebook.com or within the two most-popular mobile apps.

Embracing the 'app store' model

Apple's success with the App Store is no secret. 50m+ iPhone and iPod Touch customers have downloaded apps more than 2bn times. More than 85,000 apps and 125,000 app developers compete for a piece of the action.

So it's no surprise that more and more companies are trying to find ways to replicate the 'app store' model in some fashion. From Twitter to Intel, the model is being embraced.
