Facebook have decided to open up an app store of their own. In their App Center users can find both free and payed version of applications different from the ones, which are popular in the standard version of the social network, as well as HTML5 application, which can be used through the mobile version of Facebook. The App Center is going to become available in the coming weeks and will be usable through both web browsers and the official Facebook applications for iOS and Android. Software developers can start preparing their applications from now, in order to make them compatible with the company’s requirements.

A representative of the company has shared with Venture Beat, that App Center has no intents of competing with Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store, but on the other hand Facebook might be able to surpass those two companies by being the first to offer a market for premium HTML5 applications. Currently the project is focused on providing users with software, which is strongly integrated with Facebook. The software developers, who want to take part in tests with payed apps, can already sign up for it, but normal users will have to wait just a little bit more. B. A.
