Facebook Home, the Android front-end that claims to offer a people-centric rather app-centric approach, has hit half a million downloads in its first week, noted Benedict Evans (via TNW).

It’s an impressive number for an overlay that works only on a handful of handsets so far. However, we note that the poor reviews continue, with an average of 2.2 out of 5, and 1 star by far the most common vote. Based on the ratings, we suspect at least half of those downloads were people made curious by the hype and who removed it after a fairly brief play (like our own experience).
