Facebook launches App Center in India and seven more countries

Facebook has launched its App Center in India and seven other countries, They are-

1) United States,
2) Australia,
3) Canada,
4) Ireland,
5) New Zealand,
6) South Africa and
7) United Kingdom

In the coming weeks, the company is launching the App Center to users in Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey.

The company said that people in these countries will now see the App Center bookmark on the left side of their home page on Facebook.com and in the Facebook apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android.

“Approximately 80% of people active on Facebook each month are outside the U.S. and Canada. The global rollout of the App Center will continue over the coming weeks so that more people can discover high quality games and apps with friends”, the company said

The App Center lists high quality apps based on user feedback and orders them based on what a person is most likely to enjoy and the popularity in their country. Whenever possible, it shows app information in a person’s own language. For example, if an app specifies English as their primary language but also provides translations for Spanish, It shows the translated version to Spanish speakers and the English version to everyone else.

To prepare for the broader rollout, the company has added the Localize tab to the App Dashboard. There, you can provide translations of user information (name, tagline, and descriptions) for use in the App Center and across Facebook.

Some of the most popular apps and games on Facebook were built by developers based outside of the U.S., such as Diamond Dash (Wooga, Germany), Bubble Witch Saga (King.com, U.K.), Jetpack Joyride (Halfbrick, Australia), Angry Birds Friends (Rovio, Finland), Ninja Showdown (Noritown, South Korea), Soundcloud (Germany), Spotify (Sweden), and Deezer (France). The App Center makes it easier for people around the world to discover the best apps and games for them, wherever they are.
