Facebook has finally launched their very talked about new app in the App Store. The Facebook Paper app is the newest app launched by Facebook, Inc. and it is free to download. Facebook is hoping this new app is going to be a hit and bring a new experience to browsing your News Feed.
The new Paper app brings a distraction free way to browse Facebook. The new app allows you to browse Facebook with a new layout and a whole new experience. Paper even allows you to customize it with your favorite themes and interests. This allows users to see posts that they may have never seen previously. You can choose from the categories Headlines, Tech, Score (sports), Pop Life (entertainment), and Flavor.
Paper also allows you to tilt the screen so that you are able to explore high-resolution photos and even see the details of the picture up close. Another new feature is the ability to watch videos on Facebook in full screen mode. Paper also have voice tips until the user is more comfortable using the new app.
When you open Paper you will see a larger photo at the top that will periodically change to different posts from your friends. The bottom half of the screen contains your News Feed. You will be able to swipe this from left to right to see more updates from your friends. If you swipe the larger photo at the top of the screen, you will be able to explore the categories you chose.
On the startup page of Paper, swiping down will allow you to access your profile, create a new post to update your status, and a settings and edit section. To get back to the main page, simply swipe up. The main page still has the friend requests, messages and notifications in the upper right corner.
Paper for Facebook may not be for everyone, but if you are a Flipboard fan you will probably love this new app. The Facebook Paper app is compatible with iOS 7 on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app can be downloaded for free in the App Store.
