Facebook Paper gets several improvements in major 1.2 update

updated 02:28 pm EDT, Mon June 16, 2014

Adds mentions, hashtags, photo-related features

Facebook has released a significant update of Paper, its story-oriented reading app for the iPhone. The focus of v1.2 is on parity with the main Facebook app and website. Users now have access to hashtags and trending content, for instance, and friend mentions can be included in posts. The privacy settings for a post can be changed after the fact, and tapping and holding on a post's text will let people copy it.

Photo editing and management has received several tweaks. Users can finally edit their profile and cover photos from within Paper, as well as view the full list of people tagged in an image. When browsing photos, zooming in fullscreen will let users tilt their phone to pan around them.

Facebook has also made general performance improvements. The app is a free download for devices running iOS 7 or later.
