Facebook App Store
Guess what? Facebook is about to launch its own app store in an attempt to compete in the 'app war' with Google and Apple. The app store, available for computers as well as smartphones and tablets, will offer 600 different apps at its launch in the US.
Developers will benefit from the launch of Facebook's first paid for apps as they will be free to charge users for their applications. Furthermore, it will be possible to transfer the same app from a computer to a mobile phone by simply clicking the button 'Send to Mobile'.
With this move Facebook is trying to convince the stock market about its ability of generating revenues, an aspect that many investors have had doubts about.
