Facebook has announced the launch of an app store in the US, which is expected to roll out elsewhere in the coming weeks, as it aims to take on the entertainment market.
The store launches with over 600 web and mobile apps, such as Draw Something, Pinterest, Spotify and Endomondo.
Matt Wyndowe , who is involved in product management at Facebook, said in a blog post: “To make it easier to find social apps for mobile, the App Center is available in the Facebook iOS and Android apps, as well as Facebook.com.
“You can send apps you find on your computer to your mobile device using the new “Send to Mobile” feature. If a mobile app requires a download, you’ll be sent to install it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.”
