Facebook Home is getting another update and this time around they are bringing even more social to your lockscreen. The folks at Facebook have announced integration with Flickr and Instagram as well as Tumblr and Pinterest. Simply put, those using Facebook Home will now be able to browse a full handful of social networks without even fully unlocking their handset.
Facebook is busy pushing another round of updates out today for their standard app, as well as the somewhat useful Facebook Home launcher. The update for Home will bring the option for users to enjoy folders for their apps. Which can then be used in the app tray, or on the newly added dock so we can access apps and such like a smartphone should, instead of being merely a social networking device.
Facebook has begun pushing out another update to their Facebook Home replacement launcher today, but so far we have no clue as to what actually changed. This isn't the first update, but most new features have arrived through the official Facebook app, not the Home app itself. It still says version 1.0 in the Play Store, and there is no changelog. So your guess is as good as ours.
HTC First has been an interesting handset to watch. The handset originally launched with a $99 price point that was quickly slashed to under a buck. When AT&T dropped the price to $0.99 (on a two-year agreement) that brought speculation about how things were going downhill for the handset. The carrier maintained the price drop was for a sale, however an end date has still not been announced.
Facebook have another product they'd like to share with the world. The man in charge, Mark Zuckerberg, and his entire team have been busy adding Twitter-style #hashtags to Facebook, introducing new home replacement launchers on Android, and even the HTC First "Facebook Phone" (fail) but apparently they aren't done yet.
HTC First hasn't been around for all that long and it already has what could be described as an interesting history. The handset launched with AT&T and was originally priced at $99.99. That price quickly dropped to $0.99 and that was followed by speculation of AT&T dropping the handset entirely. Putting that all aside, it looks like the Facebook Home-running First can now get Sense.
Facebook have just pushed out an update for their Android app, and it brings with it tons of new features and a few improvements to Home. To be specific, Facebook Home didn't get an update. The regular Facebook app has been updated which enables more features for all, and a few specific to Facebook Home. Their failed launcher is getting slightly improved and we have the details below.
HTC has been in the news a lot lately regarding their failed attempt at a Facebook Phone, again. We've also been hearing a lot of rumors about an HTC One 'Google Edition' to compete with Samsung's stock Android experience phone. With many questions around how the Ultrapixel camera and beats audio features would work without HTC's proprietary software we have an answer, and that is the HTC First Google Edition. Or just call it the HTC Second.
HTC First "Facebook Home" phone in the US market, it looks like the handset will not even be getting a chance in the UK. EE, who had already been accepting pre-orders for the handset has since confirmed they will not be launching the HTC First.
