Editors' Notes

Ingeniously designed, Paper presents a powerfully modern tool for writing, drawing, note-taking and beyond. Sketch out ideas and whip up diagrams with a rich selection of responsive brushes. Using simple gestures, quickly annotate photos or transform text into beautifully formatted lists. It’s an excellent medium for capturing and organising the thoughts and images that you need every day.

User friendly

I’ve been using this app for about t years now and honestly it’s been great the whole time. At first, I was using it for very amateur sketches and found it quite boring, but after giving it a second shot I found that you can do a lot. I’m now producing high standard artworks with lots of detail and the best part is how easy it is to use. Man, I feel like a sellout or advertiser saying this, but it is so good if you dedicate a bit of time experimenting and trying out the different tools. However, for very experienced artists, this app probably doesn’t provide as broad a range of tools and customisability as you would need

Decent app but...

This is certainly one of the better apps that I’ve come across and the learn to sketch sounds very exciting. The only problem I’ve had is with some of the support pages, which are poor, in my opinion. They rely on drawing which aren’t overly intuitive and don’t particularly help. As an example, the fill roller (in pro) doesn’t seem to fill objects, only create them. I’m sure it does, but I can’t figure out how. The auto shape generator only randomly recognises that I am trying to draw a triangle. While it certainly wasn’t a perfect triangle, it was close enough to know that’s what I attempted 9seven attempts before it realised I was drawing a triangle0. Again, it is a good app and I am mainly focusing on the few negatives.
