Facebook announces release of a new app called ‘Paper’

There have been rumors of a new app brewing in the Facebook application factory and today confirms that the social network giant is indeed creating a new app. The app is called ‘Paper’ which seems to be a Flipboard styled newsfeed app. This newsreader app will be released on this coming Monday. 

From what the video shows, this app actually looks quite stunning! The animations looks fluid making it a nice looking newsreader for all your favorite subjects. Paper will combine news articles, videos, photos and your Facebook friends posts. Some of the content will be from agencies like The New York Times and TIME Magazine.

Paper mimics a lot of what Flipboard looks like with the ability to, well, flip through pages from left to right and pull down on an article. What’s nice about his app is the articles take up the whole screen from edge to edge.

Paper makes it easier to share stories right from within the app itself without leaving the app. You can Like, Share and Comment within the post itself.

After taking a look at the promo video, do you think you will give it shot on Monday or are you content with Flipboard? iOS and Android will be able to download from their respective stores on Monday.
