Paper – stories from Facebook by Facebook, Inc. (Free, 54.0 MB): This Flipboard-style Facebook client not only allows you to read and interact in the online social community more elegantly, it also offers a graceful means to catch up on other news. Before even getting to the browsing part, the app asks you select whatever news topics interest you for inclusion beyond your Facebook feed. The 20 total categories consist of everything from political and pop culture highlights to stories intended on making you laugh out loud. Once personalized, it’s time to begin perusing. Similar to its influence, the app can be navigated almost entirely and comfortably using just a thumb, literally (in the virtual sense) flipping and flicking through content using swipes, drags, and taps. The general rules are push upward to view in fullscreen, flick sideways to switch articles in a category or the topic itself, as well as pull downward to hide or minimize content, except for options, such as composing a post and accessing settings, those are revealed by tugging from the top of the main area. As a nice touch, because the app is designed to be primary operated in portrait orientation, images are zoomed to fullscreen and panned simply by spinning your iDevice left and right, though tap to zoom and landscape remain possible. Lastly, the app does indeed support content searching plus article archival and sync services: Pocket, Instapaper, Pinboard, and the Safari Reading List.
