App of the Week

Everyone who is anyone has a Facebook nowadays. I’ve even seen pets with their own Facebook. No joke, look them up! Whether you want to connect, share, promote, engage or just creep, Facebook is practically your main course for it all.

Unfortunately with all of the updates for the Facebook app it has become extremely annoying to navigate through. It seems like every other day there is a new “update” which alters the interface, adds one more way to pry into your personal information and give you ads and other suggestions you don’t want.

No worries though, since Facebook is going no where anytime soon I found the perfect app that will help you dislike Facebook a little bit less. One of my friends put me on to the “Paper” app and it completely simplifies Facebook and in my opinion makes it 10 times better.

How it works: The app is compatible with iPhone 5, 6, 6 plus and iPads with iOS7 or better operating systems. If you are using an iPad you will need to search for “Paper” and choose the iPhone only option for your app search. Once the app downloads you can sign into Facebook with your login information and the app will walk you through a brief step-by-step tutorial on how to use the different features.

The app comes with a simplified interface that allows you to swipe from “stories” (posts) with your finger tips and will display items your friends liked or were tagged in as a backdrop. Tired of Facebook? This app will allow you to add sections of pop life, trending, pride, etc. to your “paper” to browse through other topics like an organized, filtered newspaper.

Overall I would give this app five stars because it completely simplifies Facebook, takes out the ads and ads filtered categories to your paper when Facebook becomes too much. Try out this app and tell us what you think of “Paper” app using the hashtag #GlamorousPaper
