Facebook issues update for Paper, its iPhone news feed app

The new app from Facebook, Paper – stories from Facebook, received its first update this afternoon.

Paper-iPhone5-lgThe app was released nine days ago, and already over 5,000 users have given the app star-ratings inside the Apple App Store, with two-thirds of them 5-star.

For those outside the U.S. who can not download the new app, because the app is currently only in the U.S. Apple App Store, The Next Web published a handy guide on how to download the app anyways. Their solutions works only because the app is free, otherwise one needs a credit card from the same country as the international app store to buy anything – it’s a pain, isn’t it?

Here is the “what’s new” description:
