Used to love it.

Something happened to Paper, my favorite drawing app, because it used to draw completely on one’s intuitive sense, without cluttering up one’s mind with having to make decisions about the size of the brush etc. etc. It used to be simple and it worked well. Something happened, and it’s getting more complicated. Developers always feel that they have to give you more options. Sometimes I feel in America we have too many options. So many that they get in the way of creativity. Now, sometimes the brush doesn’t work, or the roller to automatically fill shapes. The photos on the front of the journals arrive cattywampus. My recommendation would be to STOP with the added options, and make what you have work every time. Also, please move the “go back” button to the tool tray, and make the tools look more different so as to easily distinguish one from another.

Useful App, Ridiculous Premium features

I have been using this app for a few years now and got the Pencil by 53 before I had gotten my iPad Pro + pencil. Originally, the notebooks were listed along the left side (as in Notability) which made them easy to view and select. They now scroll across the screen and only the front-and-center notebook is visible, which makes finding and selecting a notebook difficult.
A bigger problem is the subscription. Features that I would consider fairly simple (changing the size of pens, cutting and pasting across notes) are subscription (premium) only features. Several other apps - Notability, GoodNotes, MyScript - are all $10 or less for a one-time purchase and offer similar features. If drawing is your thing, Procreate, Concepts, Sketches, SketchBook, or one of the Adobe apps are all <$20 (or free) and, again, often offer improved features. I mention this for 2 reasons - for one, if I were going to spend money on an app, I would put my money into one of the above apps. With that said, Paper is an elegant app that would be worth $5-10 +/- because it is well designed and seems useful as a place to sketch and organize ideas. Despite its limitations (and my frustrations at what I consider a ridiculous Premium service), I still use it quite frequently.
