Facebook's app that takes over mobile phones has been met with a flurry of negative reviews, as people complain at just how much Facebook Zuck & Co. have put into their phones.
The "Facebook Home" app became available to download on select Android devices on Friday, and at the time of writing had a rating of 2.4, with almost half of its reviewers giving it one star out of five. Many of the complaints revolve around the app making it difficult to access other phone features.
"Facebook Home Take your expensive mobile device and limit it down to apps and stalking," reads a sample one-star review. "Good job FB Way to try and move mobile technology backwards."
For some, Facebook Home just packs too much Facebook into a phone. The app replaces phone lockscreens with a rolling feed of pictures derived from the users' friends on the social network, and also prioritizes Facebook apps like Messenger above typical Android features.
Many one-star reviewers voiced their dislike for the way the app replaces a Facebook lock screen with a constant display of personal information. Others were more critical of the way Facebook Home makes it more difficult to access other Android features.
