Facebook Home a truly new and unique experience for Android devices?

The Facebook Home press event is just about done. As we've already covered, there is no new Facebook phone. What is new is the "Home", which is a new UI to replace the home screen of your Android device. The big part of it is "Cover Feed" which automatically shows you a stream of your friend's content from Facebook, as soon as you turn on your phone.

Mark Zuckerberg announced that Home will be available for download on a few Android devices on April 12 in the Play Store.

 

The devices supported initially include the HTC One, HTC One X / One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note II.

What are your thoughts on Facebook Home and Cover Feed? Let us know if you're excited to try it out. I guess Apple being Apple and containing super tight control over their UI means there will be little to no chance of seeing something like this on the iPhone or iPad.
