About the same time on July 2014 when we launched Pixotale app, a new interesting app named "homer" caught my eyeballs. The app got a lot of attention maybe because it was from Paypal's cofounder Max Levchin, but it's indeed an interesting app that solved a problem : use the social network for app discovery.

Recently Betaworks recently released #homescreen, it's almost a clone of Homer. Well, it has better design (maybe) and simpler, but the way it works is too much similar to Homer. I am a little bit surprised and confused since I thought Betaworks shouldn't be a copycat however apparently it's the trend today, even Facebook copied Taptalk recently into its Bolt.
