Apple (link no longer available), The Verge, and Fast Company have all praised FiftyThree for their innovative (and friggin’ cool) app called “Paper“. And we love it.

They’ve also developed something called “Pencil” and “Book” — all of which are super awesome, and are definitely worth a Google hit and then a mosey on over to their shop, if you’re so inclined.

This app has been all over the news, iTunes, and tech mags since 2012. It’s not new news, per se.

And yet, somehow, Facebook missed the headlines.
