Facebook announces Paper, a FB reading app that blows the FB app out of the water

This morning, Facebook announced Paper, a beautifully designed reimagining of Facebook that may make it so you never actually use Facebook’s regular app ever again. In short, FB just blew itself out of the water. Taking design cues from the likes of Flipboard, Medium and Google +, Paper strips the linear nature out of the normal FB feed and gives you a swipe and gesture happy full screen news, photo and video app. Oh, and it’s ad free for right now at least. Oh, and it’s only for iPhone and only in the US, and you can’t get it right now, you’ll have to wait until Monday, February 3rd.
