What's New in Version 1.4
Fixed a bug with viewing videos from YouTube following changes to their API.
This is a beautiful app with great stories! I often find that I don't have enough time to read anymore. Paragraph delivers the stories right to my iPad, leaving me with no excuses not to just read them! And as long as the quality of the stories remain this high (Franzen, Egan, Keret, etc), I'll keep coming back!
A smart, slick curiosity cabinet
It is a huge relief to have others do the leg work that I will never do to allow me to explore and sample diverse stories and jump from known to unknown talents. i look forward to the next, and i also really like that there is music and short films commingled with short stories. very cool.
Very very nice
A great idea and well executed. To the developers, for some reason scrolling on the iPad mini is a bit sticky, it keeps moving the bookmark to the region but I just trying to scroll.. Anyway, it's a small issue. It's a free app with great content!
