Does anyone else this Facebook home is a huge win for Android?
First off its a Native app. We have yet to see how it will run on older hardware (benchmark should be galaxy nexus), but its simple, fun, and graphically nice looking. It seems fast too. This will not only help the android NDK but showcase the flexibility of Pure android. Something that Amazon, Microsoft, and apple cant do. It also is a shot at Sense and Touchwiz and how much better they could be. Facebook has made a front end for android that is unique and makes you use their services so much easier.
All my friends have android or iphones, yet they all text. Why not Gchat, or Google+.
This helps show android off, and keeps the google engineers honest. there is and always will be a lot of work to do.
