Facebook Starts Rolling Out Home Improvements

facebook-home2Facebook updated its Android app Tuesday, and enhanced Facebook Home, its all-encompassing skin for Android smartphones.

Facebook Home now has a dock, making it easier to access favorite apps.


The addition of the dock is the first of many improvements Facebook has planned for Home, improvements being made in part based on the reactions of early adopters to the launcher.

“We’ve spent a lot of time digging through the one star ratings,” Facebook’s Director of Mobile Engineering Cory Ondrejka told a small group of reporters earlier this month.

Facebook already has plans to add folders for grouping your apps to Home as well.

In addition to the changes to Home, Facebook added the ability to send multiple photos in a single message, and the ability to change who can see something you’ve already shared to its traditional Android app Thursday.

The updated Facebook Home and Facebook Android app are available now from Google Play.
