Great but could use more functionality for serious note-taking
I love this app. The writing is generally responsive and looks natural. I also like the password feature to protect any possibly sensitive information. I take a lot of notes for work, about 7-9 pages per day. It’s a lot and I need to be able to search them relatively quickly. However, you can’t search notes or quickly flip through them. The page turning arrow is annoyingly slow when you have any type of volume. I’d also like to see more subcategories like tabs or groups of books. I have the Bamboo Fineline which is great when paired with the app as well.
Inkspace cloud storage does not work
I have several hundred pages of important notes and sketches on this app. I need to have them backed up and unharmed so I can reload them onto a new iPad. In the top right corner the app offers storage through Inkspace if you sign in. I sign in, it says I can return to the app, so I do and it appears to be backing up. Within 5 seconds it stops randomly and still shows a red “x” on the cloud icon. When I press the icon to redo it I’m completely signed out as if I never tried in the first place. I’ve tried over and over at least a dozen times and it’s the same thing.
If I absolutely have to I’ll go through each notebook and download each of the ~700 pages individually to my photo gallery. It is frustrating to not have a functioning cloud service from a brand that has such a large presence in digital art and communication.
Great App for teaching
I’ve been using Bamboo Paper App since 2014 and over the years I’ve been wanting several features add it to make the work flow better and more productive.
Bamboo Paper is a great because it integrates with your work flow and provides you with the capabilities of sharing your work with others. The ability to be able to share your work across other platforms and syncing your work makes it possible to work from almost anywhere.
I gave it five stars but because of the following I will rate it 4.9 stars. This leaves room for the following:
I wish that there were other choices in the type and color of lines to format the pages, that there was the ability to type on each page and that there was a better way to control files, and manage your notebooks. More pens and productivity tools.
This app has been around for a long time and from the beginning it has been a tool to go to when I’m teaching. I strongly recommend this App if you are a presenter, teach take notes or just like to doodle.
Start using it today! I will be looking forward more tools integrated into the page and better file managements.
