According to post by Facebook on its official blog that day, people will be able to access the App Center on the web and in the iOS and Android Facebook apps in the coming weeks, which aims to give developers an additional way to grow their apps.
“For the over 900 million people that use Facebook, the App Center will become the new, central place to find great apps like Draw Something, Pinterest, Spotify, Battle Pirates, Viddy, and Bubble Witch Saga.” Facebook engineer Aaron Brady wrote on the post.
As noted by Facebook, everything has an app detail page, which helps people see what makes an app unique and lets them install it before going to an app, with the social network also providing App Center Tutorial page and a separate Guidelines page for developers.
Meanwhile, Facebook said on their App Center Guidelines page that submitted app detail page will be reviewed first and creating one does not mean the app will be listed in the App Center, adding that they reserve the right to remove apps from App Center that do not meet a high quality bar.
