Facebook Home app gets 'worst' rating from users


A majority of users have given Facebook's Home mobile a one star rating on the Google Play store. 

Out of 14,100 reviews of the free Android app, 52% rated it just one out of five stars. 

Nearly 16% of reviewers, however, gave it top marks, leaving the app with an overall 'below average' rating of 2.2 stars, reports news.com.au.

Facebook Home's main feature is a constantly changed display of photos and updates from Facebook friends that consumes phone's battery life and mobile data allowance. 

Critics have complained the app's main feature -- a constantly changing display of photos and updates posted by your Facebook friends -- consumes a lot of battery and mobile data allowance. 

Many have also complained that the app 'hijacks' a phone's home screen, making it harder to access other phone functions like number dialing, texting and email. 

The two-and-a-half weeks old app has however been appreciated it for its 'stylish' and 'simple' design. 

A spokesperson for Facebook Australia said that the app was 'a first step' and they were working to 'improve the experience'.
