Facebook Home Downloaded 500,000 Times in 10 Days, Receives Negative Reviews

Nearly 6,000 of the app’s 11,400 reviews give the app 1 star

Ten days since it's release, Facebook's new app, Facebook Home, which makes Facebook the home screen of one's Android phone, has already been downloaded 500,000 times. However, the majority of its reviews in the Google Play store are negative. Of the 11,400 reviews, nearly 6,000 of them give the app 1 star. ZDNet has the story:
 
It's been just over a week since Facebook released Facebook Home on Google Play, and the app has already been downloaded over 500,000 times.
 
The app's move into the 500,000 to one million download category was first noticed on Sunday by mobile analyst Benedict Evans.
 
Given Facebook Home's limited support for select, popular devices, it's hard to say whether the number of downloads is good or poor. However, the app is currently receiving a lot of one out of five star reviews from users. At present, one star reviews for Home dominate, whereas five stars is the most common review on Google Play for the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps.
