Pay for an OSX app to improve Facebook experience?
I have always found these type of apps interesting, because, essentially, it is a commentary on the user experience (UX) of the original platform. Someone thinks a website or platform can use improvement, so they improve it.
The app is called Current for Facebook. For $1.99, you essentially integrate Facebook to your Mac desktop. I am not a Mac user, but if this app were for Windows 8, for example, would I buy it? Would I pay for better user experience? I don't know, to be honest. I feel that I am too accustomed to the Facebook UI to really care to change it...I would rather be comfortable than try something new. I mean, how many of us are outraged when they change something? To use a separate app seems like a lot of work. Some people think otherwise, according to some of the comments I read in the app reviews.
I'm surprised Facebook hasn't officially done this yet...I mean, look at Home. They're focused in the mobile direction, I guess. (There's even rumors of a Facebook phone?!!!)
Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!
