Everyone loves Facebook, right? And lately it seems that everyone wants their own Facebook application. So, in response, the Dapper team (especially Uzi and Itai) has been working hard over the past few weeks to provide a framework for powering Facebook applications using Dapper, called the “Facebook AppMaker”. This means that anyone with a website can now use Dapper to create their own, automatically updating, Facebook application with no programming necessary. The AppMaker allows for branding (logos etc.) and provide functionalities such as remote search and retrieval, remote login, and multi-page apps. We’re currently opening up the feature in a private beta, but you can see a few examples here:
and many more to come.
If you want your own application, apply for the beta at email@example.com
The AppMaker is joining our month old DapperApp, which allows you to get content from all over the web into Facebook effortlessly. If you want to get latest movies, a search for patents, or anything that is on the web, you can consume it in Facebook with the DapperApp
