The guys say that for the over 900 million Facebook users, the Facebook App Center will be the new place to locate such apps as Viddy, Pinterest, Spotify, Draw Something, Bubble Which Saga, Battle Pirates and more, and every app will have a detail page.
Apparently the Facebook App Center has been designed to grow mobile apps that use Facebook, whether that be on the web, on iOS or on Android, users will be able to browse apps and if they wish to install a particular mobile app they will be sent off to Google Play or iTunes to download the app.
