When Facebook introduced Home, an Android app that replaces the features of your phone with a customer user interface, the company said there were no plans to bring the overlay to Apple's iOS. The main hindrance being that, unlike Android which is open, Apple's operating system is closed. But Facebook's going to try anyway.
Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Facebook chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, said that while Android is allowing the company to "provide a more immersive Facebook experience than we can on other operating systems" it is working on bringing some of Home's features to other platforms.
“Home is based on the openness of Android. It allows users to customize in ways that Apple does not. We are going to release a new version [of our mobile app] on iOS, very soon … You will see some of the features from Home will be launched with Apple.”
Seeing as how most of new and novel Home features were designed to work within the UI, we're interested to see which features Facebook will bring over to the iPhone. Honestly, we're really just hoping Chat Heads, the unfortunately named but awesome texting and messaging portion of Home, gets spun off into a seperate app.
