Facebook Home APK leaks ahead of launch

Facebook Home APK leaks ahead of launch
Facebook Home, which was made official just days ago, is scheduled to launch on April 12. Are you one of those people who can't wait to give it a try? Well, you're in luck as a pre-release version of Facebook's Android launcher just leaked, pulled from an HTC First smartphone. 

This early version of Facebook Home consists of 3 APK files you need to download and put on your Android device. Reportedly, doing so is only possible on handsets with screen resolution no higher than 1280 by 768 pixels. It is also important to uninstall the existing Facebook app prior to installing any of the leaked APKs. Devices that have Facebook hardwired into the system won't let you do that, but if you have a Nexus smartphone, you should be good to go.

Just keep in mind that this leaked Facebook Home version is still buggy and some of its perks don't work. Chat Heads, for example, which makes it easier to keep track of all opened Facebook chats, isn't functional. Other features, however, seem to be up and running, so in case you're interested, proceed at your own risk by following the source link below!

Just because you hate facebook you want someones efforts to fail. They're trying to move more into android instead of every employee carrying iPhones there's more to it than just being a facebook fanatic

Their improving the UI for Android and they are not giving IOS this. They are making a huge attempt to do this right. What or who gives you the right to complain like a b*itch... that's right... No one.

"Just keep in mind that this leaked Facebook Home version is still buggy" it´s not a bug, it´s a feature......crappy just like the original app

it ould appear Facebook has disabled this on the server level because now everybody is just getting black screens where they're supposed to be seeing Facebook stories.
