Facebook has updated Messenger and main Facebook app this morning to prepare the arrival of Home (that is available only on selected devices, which are One X, One X+, First, Note 2 and SIII (eventually One and SIV). It looks like links are not up yet, but the app is live as you can see from this screenshot




-Personal Review:
I've been looking forward to it for nearly a whole month, following leaked previews on Modaco, getting excited for that.
Now that I finally got it, I'm kind of "yah, cool. Now let's go back to Nova"
That's not because I don't like it, the idea is nice. Probably it's just me.
I like the thing that with a simple swipe you can access your SMS/Facebook Messages, or main facebook app and the app drawer, but I'm missing many parts of my One X...
Widgets... that's android's pride. I need my widgets, like weather and news feed, and now I have to swipe up, open app drawer, scroll down to weather app to see if tomorrow is raining or not.
Long refreshing time... When I go back to facebook home after a while it needs 10-15 seconds to refresh news feed, and it's very annoying because it lags a lot in that moment, and can't do anything...
Btw, I love the new updates. Messenger app is nearly perfect now, I don't need to leave an app or a game to answer a text, and I love it
Please let me know your opinions, I would like to see if you agree and will use Home as default Launcher or not, and why

XDA users reviews:

"Worst app/launcher ever.."

"Dont think its gonna be a nice option to battery/data life.
Not much features as "normal" launchers, no widgets."

"Destroyed my battery today!"

EDIT: you need to update your build.prop to get it to work.

ro.product.model=SCH-I535
ro.product.name=d2vzw
ro.product.device=d2vzw

That's what I used, it makes your device look like the VZW GS3.
