Last week we told you about Paper, Facebook’s standalone newsreader/storytelling app. Today Paper launched as an iOS special application. But past being iOS special, the app is also apparently U.S. unique. Our sibling website TechCrunch has offered up an useful work around that will certainly permit you to download and install the app if you’re locked out based on something as silly as where you live.

This method just functions considering that it’s a free application, so keep your eye on the prize and don’t go trying to download paid applications that aren’t offered in your country.

  1. Visit the App Store.
  2. Visit “Apple ID:”
  3. Login with your password as you typically would.
  4. When you’ve logged-in, go to your environments locate “nation”, then “change nation or region”, and transform your nation to “United States”
  5. Click “none” when it asks you for repayment information.
  6. Look for Paper, download it, after that transform your country back to wherever you’re from. Voila! You have actually acquired Paper, at the very least until Facebook updates the app with a region lock.

We’ll have an evaluation of Paper up quickly. In the meanwhile permit us know what you think about the application in the remarks listed below once you have actually acquired a chance to offer it a spin.
