Facebook Paper

Facebook is rolling out an update to its Paper app for iPhone users bringing a better photo sharing experience to the alternative News Feed app.

Starting with version 1.2.5, Paper will now support the new Favorites album from the Photos app introduced with iOS 8. This means you can easily find and post photos that you’ve favorited with the heart icon in Photos when sharing with Paper. The photo browser also makes finding photos and videos from your Camera Roll easier by organizing them chronologically.

Facebook also says the new version of Paper speeds up overall performance with faster responsiveness. Version 1.2.5 is the first update to Paper since last October when Facebook added iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus optimization. The alternative Facebook app for iPhone users launched nearly a year ago bringing a full screen layout and news reader features to the social network.

Facebook Paper is available for free on the App Store.
