Good item. Hopefully you guys keep working to make it better.

Good item. Hopefully you guys keep working to make it better. I am having hard time adding left margin, right margin, top margin, and and extra customizable margins. I don’t see these features. And you guys need to optimize these applications to for iPad Pro 12.9 3rd generation. I am currently using this device.

Please add these stuffs. If you add these all features that I mentioned above I am definitely going to purchase other paper types. Thank you. And truly sorry for the previous “rude review.”

Great for simple graphs and grids

I just need to make basic graph and grid paper with different options such as color, line width, spacing, etc. This app does exactly that! I can save them as high res PDFs, or images with transparency, bring them into Notability, or print them.

The cons:
Besides creating simple graphs, this app is not intuitive at all.

There are some editing functions - drawing lines, freehand drawing, adding notes- that are clunky, and I couldn’t quite get them to work. There is a Help section with some videos, but no written instructions anywhere and the videos didn’t explain the drawing and editing features very well. The developer website also has no additional information.

Overall the app does the basics very very well, and that’s why I give it five stars. It’s worth the .99 to not have to open up Adobe Illustrator to make custom graph paper. I would love to see updates with more robust drawing and editing features and a more modern feel and interface.

I really hate seeing negative reviews because people didn’t take the time to read the app description! This is not meant to be a note taking, drafting, or drawing app!

I finally found the graph apps I was searching for. I am a lacemaker and doing design work by hand. Designs I am working on require special dot sizes, inches or mm. I found the sizes were preset on dot graphs. I wrote to a developer and suggested to be more flexible with sizes. In one week later, he made it happen. Now I can create any sizes on dot graphs. I never expected to hear from the developer. How wonderful! I tried this app and found to be very user friendly, nothing really complicated. The developer appreciates suggestions to improve.
