Indeed, Facebook is more than just a mere traditional social network as the company launched App Center for all loyal users on Thursday, July 7, 2012.

Facebook’s App Center allows users to run and even download Facebook-connected applications on their computers and smartphones. With a personalized dashboard, App Center will sort out all apps to help users discover interesting stuff arranged by category and user ratings.

As of launching, Facebook’s App Center has more than 600 social apps to offer including Nike+ GPS, Ubisoft Ghost Recon Commander, Stitcher Radio, Draw Something and Pinterest.

App Center is available across different Facebook platforms including the Facebook.com, mobile web and on smartphones’s iOS and Android versions.

According to Facebook, more than 230 million people play games on Facebook every month. On more than 130 games on Facebook, there are more than one million monthly users recorded.

It is also quite noticeable that Facebook drove people to the Apple App Store 83 millions times last month. This information is followed by another statistics saying seven out of 10 top grossing iOS apps and six out of 10 Android apps have integrated with Facebook.

“From the mobile App Center, users can browse apps that are compatible with their device, and if a mobile app requires installation, they will be sent to download the app from the App Store or Google Play,” Facebook’s Aaron Brady said.
