The Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Paper application is now available for download. Right now, it’s only available to those living in the United States. Fortunately, there is a way international users can download the app before the international release.
Step one: change iTunes settings
The first step is to change your iTunes account to make it think you are living in the US. Users will have to load App Store on their iPhone, then tap the featured button (which is at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen) and simply scroll down all the way to the bottom. At the bottom, you should notice a horizontal button with your Apple ID, tap it to see the “View Apple ID” option right at the top portion of the pop-up menu. You will then be prompted to put in your password, then you will see a small list of options for your account including country/region where you currently live. You can then choose United States to view the country’s version of the App Store. Afterwards, you will have to agree to the Terms and Conditions. Right after that, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) requires you to put in a valid payment method but you can skip that (choose ‘None’), then hit next. From there, you can locate Facebook Paper and download it onto your phone.
Facebook Paper description
Facebook Paper is a new application that lets users share stories from friends in a unique distraction-free layout. This application displays articles from trusted news sources in a beautiful design with high-resolution images and full-screen videos. This new application is similar to other popular news applications like Flipboard, Pulse, Google Currents, and Zite.
This generation of well-designed news sharing applications makes it easy to read (and share) the latest news stories on mobile phones and tablets. It also provides a more convenient way to read the news instead of just opening different news applications.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Paper requires iOS 7 or later and it’s not compatible with older iOS versions.
