How to download Facebook Paper if you live outside of the U.S.

Facebook Paper

You’ve probably heard it – Facebook launched the Paper app for iPhone users, allowing them to browse their newsfeed like it’s a magazine. At the moment, the application is available only to the users in the U.S. with global expansion likely following within days… or weeks.

This limitation may prevent the majority of non-US residents from getting the Paper app today; but not the savvy few reading this article.

Here are the few steps you should take if you don’t live in the U.S. and you want to enjoy the “Paper experience” today:

  • Go to the App Store.
  • Go to “Apple ID” and log-in with your password.
  • Go to your settings, find “country,” and then “change country or region” to “United States.”
  • Set payment information to “none”.
  • Search AppStore for “Paper,” and take it from there.

Now you can return your country settings back to normal and enjoy your Facebook newsfeed in a whole new way. Enjoy!

Final note – the trick described above will work with any other app as long as it’s free to download.
