Paper offered access to feed news and special content from other sources. All organized as a kind of digital newspaper where the news unfolded with an animation similar to Flipboard, with style and no advertising. Paper focused on the content that interest us and was a member of the list of friends, messages, search and notifications. Updates of our contacts were better that ever thanks to the design on screen complete.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, Paper never managed to take off. The application remained exclusive to the United States, and after some months disappeared from most downloaded applications count. The Android version remained in the Inkwell and the Creative Labs division passed to better life by the end of 2015.
