Facebook Shutters Creative Labs

Sad news from Facebook, too: the part of the company that was responsible for a bunch of fairly unpopular but rather nice apps has been shut down. Most notably, Creative Labs is behind Paper, which has always been a far better Facebook experience than the official Facebook app. It was last updated in March, yet it still doesn’t support interactive notifications or any other recent iOS features. It doesn’t support many of Facebook’s most recent features, either, like Instant Articles.

Facebook has pulled a bunch of Creative Labs’ apps from the App Store, but Paper remains. I don’t think it’s going to last much longer.
