Facebook Paper For iOS Is Available Today

Feb 3 2014 - 9:50am

Many Facebook-ers already get their news from their News Feeds — but CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the rest of the Palo Alto-based company want to make that experience even more beautiful and visual.

Facebook Paper [1], which is available starting today, is a standalone iOS app that displays shared stories from your Feed and can also show you trending stories from across the web.

Facebook's Paper — not to be confused with the popular digital art app Paper [2] (free) — joins many other worthy contenders [3] in the "visual news app" category. Could it replace your current news aggregator?

Here's how Paper works:

The immersive look and feel of Paper is very similar to the Facebook Home [4] experience for Android, and we'll see whether or not Paper captivates an audience after US users download the app starting today. If Paper does prove to be better and more beautiful, why would we ever go back to the official Facebook iPhone app?
