Try Facebook Paper before its official release in Ireland

It’s been getting rave reviews in the US (despite some comparisons to Flipboard).

The standalone App was released for IOS in the US this month and is yet unavailable in Ireland. See Facebook’s video here for more details.

However, the tech wizards at 256 Media have already had more than a sneak peek. Infact we’ve downloaded it to our iPhones and so far are very impressed with the user experience.

We definitely see a use for Facebook Paper for anyone in marketing who creates, curates and distributes content.

Try Facebook Paper on your Irish iPhone

Read below to find out how to try Facebook Paper on your Irish iPhone. Remember you need IOS7 to run Facebook Paper so it will work for anyone with an updated iPhone 5 or iPhone 6. One word of warning: this runs contrary to Apple’s T&Cs and you may lose some paid Apps so do so at your own risk.

Once you’ve followed the below steps and installed the App a helpful video loads automatically to talk you through the features of the Facebook Paper.
