Facebook released an update to its news reader iPhone app Paper Tuesday, allowing users to more easily share the stories via Facebook messages, text or email.

The app has been well-liked among those who use it, earning an overall rating of 4.5 stars (out of 5). However, AppData download estimates show that Paper has fallen flat.

Here’s a look at what else this update of Paper provides, as noted by the iTunes page:

  • Turn off sound effects and enjoy the silence
  • Create stories in languages that use multi-stage input, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean
  • Experience other improvements that make Paper even more reliable and—hopefully—that much more fun to use!

We’ll see if these enhancements help, but so far, iPhone users have been slow to download Paper, even with shining reviews. On Feb. 4, one day after release, AppData estimates pegged Paper as the top free social networking app in the U.S. (in terms of downloads). Today? It’s the 28th-most downloaded free social networking app in the U.S., and 285th in terms of U.S. free apps.
