FiftyThreeâ€™s Paper responds to Facebook's Paper app
J Thoendell stashed this in Apps
Stories reveal character.
Thereâ€™s a simple fix here. We think Facebook can apply the same degree of thought they put into the app into building a brand name of their own. An app about stories shouldnâ€™t start with someone elseâ€™s story. Facebook should stop using our brand name.
Technically the name is "Facebook Paper" not "Paper".
But seriously, isn't "Paper" a generic enough word that it should not be a brand?
It's an odd trend in mobile apps -- Jelly and Secret are two examples -- that make these apps unfindable in the appstore because their names ARE generic words.
