Half a million downloads racked up by Facebook Home so far
The HTC First will launch in the U.K. sometime this summer as an exclusive of EE while the Facebook Home app launched last Tuesday in the U.K., on the Google Play Store. The international release of the app is on a staggered schedule and while the numbers so far are not indicative of a big hit, we would suggest not making such a rush to judgment until the number of phones that support the launcher is increased sharply. Meanwhile, it should be noted that the Facebook app for Android has between 100 million and 500 million downloads.
Have you tried out Facebook Home yet? So far, slightly more than half of those who have left a rating on the app have given it just one star. Let us know what you think by dropping us a comment in the box below.

Also, noting that the Facebook app for Android only has 100,000-500,000 downloads doesn't really mean anything, considering that most phones purchased from carries these days already have it pre-installed (or it gets installed on ICS/JB updates).

Er, yeah. I don't know how I missed that. Nevermind.
