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.

Plz fix

I can’t get paper pro so it’s rlly annoying coz I can only use tiny brushes and it’s hard to color stuff in and all so can you at least make it so people who can’t get paper pro can change the brush size

App update ruined experience

I used to use Paper for doodles (using a better app such as ProCreate for actual design) but the latest update, the one pushing the pro subscription, removed all the covers from my notebooks (and put them as the first page for some reason) and completely removed all the effort I’d invested. It no longer feels like an app I’m bothered using. Tools I spent money on seem to be still present, but are now buried.
Strikes me as a company making their product worse so they can charge subscriptions, rather than creating new valuable features that users will want to pay for. For example, I paid for the colour mixer tool, which now seems pointless. Apps should come with a warning when an upgrade will actually make the app worse. While Paper was cool when it launched, these days competitors do everything better and with more respect for existing users. Time for me to uninstall.
