Good news for all of you facebook fanatics that happen to be sporting Android devices running OS 4+ as the much hyped facebook home app is now available for you. The app hit Play today, April 12 although I suspect many folks won’t be able to run it unless of course you have the latest Android device running the latest OS – darn, I wish I had the Google Nexus smartphone now! The service brings together all your social services into a handy environment, providing you with quick access to comments, photos and such from your services… Like I said before, I had similar functionality on some Symbian devices and also find that the Windows Phone experience also provides similar functionality… I guess we’ll just wait and see what the feedback is like (note, currently the 1 star rating seems to be the overwhelming choice of those rating the app!). Of note, for some tips on updating your Android OS on your mobile see this post
