Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One get Facebook Home

Facebook Home just topped 1 million downloads, a number that will likely increase with the recent launch of the mobile social network experience on two more high-end devices - the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4.

Facebook Home was made available on 12 April for owners of the HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S3, and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, while the HTC First was released with the app pre-loaded.

At the time, Facebook said the interface would be made available for the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 at some point after they were released in late April, but Home has not yet been officially released for those smartphones.

Home may be the Facebook's newest baby, but its original Android app has also been getting some attention this week, with a new update that brings stickers, the ability to delete unwanted comments from your posts, and an updated look for business pages. "Get directions, check in, call businesses and more right from the top of Facebook Pages," Facebook said in the app description.

As Engadget noted, meanwhile, the update also appeared to have added a new Facebook icon on the phone's notification bar for alerts, but it disappeared within hours.
