facebookpaperFacebook today updated its Paper app to version 1.2.5, adding several improvements to the app's photo management capabilities. It's now possible for users to access their "Favorited" photos album on iOS for faster sharing of preferred photos, and the Camera Roll in the app organizes photos by date.

The "Favorites" album was introduced with the iOS 8 Photos app revamp and houses all of the images that a user favorites via tapping the heart icon on individual pictures within the app.

Today's Paper update also includes performance enhancements that are designed to make various features within the app run faster, including photo uploads.

We've been working to perfect your experience with Paper. In this release, we've focused on making it even faster and easier for you to share photos, in addition to fixing a few issues you've let us know about. Thanks for your feedback!

Here's what's new and improved:

- Camera Roll organized by date. When selecting media to share in the composer, photos and videos are now organized by the date they were taken.
- Share your Favorited photos. Quickly share photos from the new Favorites album introduced with iOS 8.
- Faster performance. We've improved the responsiveness of several parts of Paper including posting a photo.

First introduced in January of 2014, Facebook's Paper app is a news creation and curation tool that pulls in content from a user's Facebook news feed and other well-known publications, organizing it into a magazine-style layout for easy reading. Many people have come to prefer Paper over the standard Facebook app to read through their news feeds.

Facebook's Paper app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Oh, Thank God

Just what I needed, ANOTHER Facebook app. I think it would be useful to have a separate Facebook app for friends whose names start with letters A-M, and another for friends whose names start with letters N-Z. Maybe a daytime Facebook, and an evening Facebook too.

Anyone else think that "Paper" seems like a dumb name? It's like Facebook is trying too hard to be streamlined and cool but really isn't.

Thank god they fixed the way photos are organized in the camera roll. The random way they were displayed before was just an insanely dumb oversight and made it impossible to share photos via the app.

What about Paper makes it unsuitable for the UK market?

This. Very annoying. You can change App Store to the U.S. and download it but that's not the point.

Why is it only available in the U.S.?

I downloaded Paper upon its release. Liked some aspects, but ultimately deleted it (partly due to the photo handling).
I may check it out again. Had pretty much forgotten about it.
