Facebook is coming out with a reading app that actually does so much more than just present plain content.
Paper changes the very way your Facebook timeline is viewed… and it is absolutely beautiful.
I, for one, am really looking forward to downloading this app the very moment it is available on the App Store.
Although Paper, in essence, is a reader app, it most certainly does more than perform like it.
You know what… I’ll stop talking and let you just watch the video instead.
What’d I say? Beautiful, ain’t it?
Paper also sports a cool WYSIWYG editor. If you’re familiar with the Flipboard app, you’ll get the idea.
It’s got all sorts of bells and whistles, too – Wide photos pan when you move your phone from left to right (and vice versa), articles are displayed like Twitter-style cards and so much more.
One thing Paper doesn’t support, though, is the ability to add your own chosen sites to your account. It’s got a preset content that Facebook’s new team has determined to be to your liking. Of course, these selections can be hit or miss. We’ll see if adding personal content will become a new feature in upcoming updates of the app.
Right now, Paper seems to show a ton of promise. So much promise that Facebook might even blow their own native app out of the water with it. Only time will tell.
Paper comes out on February 3rd on iOS.
