Facebook recently released its latest mobile app Paper, elegantly integrating social networking and news reading. With Paper, you can keep in touch with friends but also catch up with world news. Rather than just being a content reading experience, Paper could actually replace Facebook for some users.
When you launch Paper, a video tutorial welcomes you and familiarizes you with what to expect. Then, you can browse your redesigned Facebook News Feed, along with 18 other sections, neatly organized in a large panel.
In the News Feed section, you see a big cover image of a friend's update at the top of your screen, while at the bottom you see the stories. You can swipe through the stories in half or full screen, and if you want to see a story you pull the screen up and read it in newspaper style.
In the top half of your Paper you can swipe through the Headlines, Flavor, Cute, Well Lived, Tech, or Creators sections, and with some cool tricks you can add or reorder your favourite sections. If you get bored or want to change a section, you simply scroll down your Paper and view the rest of the categories.
Photos look especially impressive with Paper, when for example you use the panoramic viewing, where you can tilt your phone back and forth or move it around to see the edges of the image.
The Paper app looks way better than Facebook, as there are no cluttered columns packed with text and photos. Instead, the panel gives you a sleek and smart view of news. Paper has also got notifications, friend requests, messages, so you are always a click away from your friends.
Facebook Paper is available solely on the iPhone for the time being, but hopefully we can get it on Android devices or iPads soon. You can download it for free from Apple's App Store.
