The app center Facebook announced last month could be very close to launch, as Facebook confirmed that it is being tested with a small percentage of users, and one of them leaked screen shots that were not previously available.
Facebook told TechCrunch:
Since we announced the app center to developers last month, we’ve been testing it with a small percentage of users. We have no further details to announce at this time.
According to TechCrunch, the icon for app center appears when users click the left-hand navigation feature in the Facebook iOS application for apps with unread notifications.
Users who access app center on their iPhones will then see featured apps at the top, along with the option of browsing a list of social picks, based on apps their friends are using, or a list of top apps, meaning the highest-quality and most popular apps, as determined by the social network, TechCrunch reported.
When an app is selected, the dedicated page for that app offers information including friends who use the app, what it does, and screen shots, according to TechCrunch.
Readers: Do you think app center and its social aspects will encourage more iPhone users to try out Facebook apps?
