Care to take Facebook Home Beta for a spin?
If you do, and you have an Android device with a maximum display resolution of 1280 x 768 you can. The good thing here is that it doesn’t require too much thingamajig in order for you to set it up. Interested? Head past the break to know how to install it on your gizmo.
First up, you need to be able to uninstall Facebook app on your device as the Facebook Home APK cannot be installed while the other is still active. Next you need to download these re-signed APKs care of MoDaCo.com:
Once you’ve finished downloading those, all you need to do is install on it your device. Just be sure that installation from “Unknown Sources” is allowed on your gadget. You can check that by going to Settings > Security > Device Administration and make sure there’s a check mark on that field.
Do note though that the Facebook Home, being just a Beta version, still has its fair share of flaws including the Chat Heads feature. Still, the leaked APK should give you a good first-hand experience to the new Facebook Home. The APK is said to work on Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, so if you wield any of these devices (or any device 1280 x 768 device for that matter) you can give the new app a shot.
