Rumours about a Facebook news reader app have been circulating for years, and now they've not only come true, they could spell the end of the Facebook app as we know it.
Paper is a news curation and reader app that pulls in stories, photos, videos and links from the user's Facebook feed - alongside Facebook's own notification bar and action buttons.
All stories are displayed on a customisable picture-led grid, and the app has been designed to make it easier to share content with other people.
