Facebook Paper AppFacebook has officially released its Paper news app for iOS. The new application is initially available for the United States, for which the editorial content of the app is geared only. You can choose about what categories you want to to read about, but the editors of Facebook determines what news it is important to you. It is not known when Paper comes available to other countries.
