Paper Versus Paper

FiftyThree CEO Georg Petschnigg thinks Facebook should change the name of its new Paper app:

There’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 shouldn’t start with someone else’s story. Facebook should stop using our brand name.


What will Facebook’s story be? Will they be the corporate giant who bullies their developers? Or be agile, recognize a mistake, and fix it? Is it “Move fast and break things” or “Move fast and make things”?

I link to this because I was hanging out with my good friend Gilbert today, and it just so happened that he showed me FiftyThree’s Pencil stylus for Paper. He let me play with it for a while on my iPad Air, and I really enjoyed using it. It’s awesome — so much so that I plan on ordering one for myself.
