Paper by Facebook

Facebook is launching a brand new app that hopes to change the way you read news and browse updates from your Facebook friends - Paper.

The main aim of Paper is to help users explore and share stories from their friends. Users can also choose types of stories which Facebook has curated together. But you can't choose specific news sources unfortunately, like you would in an app like Flipboard or Feedly.

The app doesn't have any many buttons or elements at all, it's all very gesture based. Stories appear in cards - very much like Pinterest.

Facebook say they've been working on the app for nine months and the developer behind Letterpress and Tweetie has also helped.

Paper will be available on iPhone only and US only on the 3rd of February. So that leaves a lot of the world out and is only limited to one device.
