What’s New

Version 1.25.0

Added Meter Guides to Music paper.

Use meter guides to line up your notes to make it easier to read and play music. Use a "disappearing ink" for the guides so that they will disappear when photocopied. Or scan your music and edit with a photo editor to remove guide lines of your own color choice.

Guide lines come in 1, 2, or 3 (triplets) lines per beat and follow time signature (numerator). First line in beat is "accented" to make it easier to count beats when multiple lines per beat is used.

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.”

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your updated review. A release or two back improved iPencil support on the iPad Pro. The latest release 1.21.0 focused on making the app easier to use. The updated interface should make it easier to find features like margin settings.

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!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your positive review and kind comments for improvement. The latest release, 1.21.0, focused on making the app easier to use. A snap-to-grid feature was added to Paint, which should make placing and positioning text and lines easier. GridMaker now includes a set of video tutorials that walk through how to get started with the app and tips for using its advanced features.

Works, but very non-intuitive to use

After purchasing this app, my initial review was a firm one star! After playing with the app, I found that it is actually quite useful as an engineering tool. Usage is highly non-intuitive however. You have to do a lot of icon touching to find and open windows that allow you to adjust line spacing etc. again, non-intuitive.

But hey, buy it for a buck and try it. With patience, you will likely find that it does what you want.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your updated review. The latest release 1.21.0 focused on making the app easier to use. One big change permanently fixed the side tool bar to the right. Also, a few functions were moved to the tool bar so they are no longer nested and some functions were simplified (such as how numbers are entered by typing or incrementing.)
