"At Eli5, we’re always on the lookout for ways to improve the way people discover and consume content. With Papyr, we’ve created a solution that cuts through the social media clutter and brings users the best of the web in a clean, easy-to-use interface. By working closely with our team of designers and developers, we were able to turn a problem into a product in just a few months. And now, as an independent company, Papyr is helping users discover and engage with the content they care about."

That’s why we put in extra effort to design Papyr with a focus on creating an experience that mimics reading an actual book, complete with added features to enhance the experience even further. No distractions, just an enjoyable and seamless reading experience."
