With bad user reviews piling up, Facebook Home (FB) has fallen out of App Annie's top-100 Google Play download lists for every covered market. Nonetheless, those who have downloaded Home are spending 25% more time using Facebook than before, giving Mark Zuckerberg & Co. a big incentive to right the ship. Updates will soon bring back two Android staples - an app dock and folder support - but there's no word on when a third (widgets) whose absence has sparked many complaints will arrive. Meanwhile, Home now supports Samsung's Galaxy S4, and AT&T has cut the price of the HTC First to a subsidized $0.99. (previous)

    After my experience with the Thunderbolt, I will not own another HTC.

    Nobody expected it to work anyway. Very few people want to use FB more with Twitter and SnapChat exploding.

    We aren't a fan of Facebook and didn't think Facebook Home was going to change much: http://seekingalpha.co... $FB

    I had an HTC android phone, android was bad enough, and then having a phone that couldn't even run a 3rd rate OS was the worst!

     

    Got a Nokia, never looking back.
