Facebook is rolling out its app discovery service internationally, extending it to a number of markets in Europe, Latin America, North America and Asia. The service, dubbed App Centre, helps the social network's desktop and mobile users find and install apps that are integrated with Facebook's platform, such as Draw Something or Pinterest. As part of the international roll-out, Facebook is also adding a translation tool for developers.
First launched in June, the App Centre marked Facebook's continued ambitions to build its own app ecosystem, with the firm also announcing the ability for developers to charge for apps. Previously, all apps were either free or freemium.
The App Centre is now live in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, South Africa, and New Zealand across desktop and mobile devices. Facebook will roll out the service to Brazil, Germany, Spain, Russia, France and Taiwan in the coming weeks.
