Love and Hate


I’ve been using Paper since Dropbox first released it. I’ve loved the simplicity of it, great interface, easy to share, etc. It’s great for documents I need to share with clients or keeping notes, and planning. I want to use this all the time, but sadly, there have been too many little bugs to use it for anything too serious. I have written project proposals in Paper in the past without much issue, but these days, a long document with copy, pasting and other editing, it’s super inconsistent and erratic. I would think that basic undo/redo would be a no-brainer but, unfortunately, it doesn’t work in Paper. I will have made 5 changes, hit undo, and it undoes something I did 8 steps ago. Content that I copied a while ago gets pasted randomly in the document, content shifts, I touch the screen to edit specific text and it jumps to the bottom of the document, it’s crazy and sometimes impossible to recover from. Too much time spent dealing with the bugs and not enough time just writing and knowing it’s reliable. Again, I want to love it and use it more, but I had to give up on the app with document I’m currently working on.

Very promising


Paper seems to have a lot of potential (and on my devices anyway, hasn't yet crashed), and it's great to have the potential for this kind of thing built into Dropbox too. That said, Paper has what's to me an annoying way of presenting folders and documents. As far as I can tell, it doesn't want to show you the actual folder structure that you've set up, it does that thing of showing a list of ALL your folders at one time, whether or not you've nested them inside each other, and it orders folders and/or documents by Recently Viewed -- with no option to have them displayed alphabetically by name instead. I hate that. My brain wants to see and work with the folder structure that I've set up, and wants the folders and documents listed alphabetically by name. So until those options are offered in Paper I won't be using it. But otherwise it seems like a nice app, and if you aren't bugged by the All Folders (and listed by Recently Viewed) thang, maybe it's for you.

Nice App that Needs Some Work


I use this app because I wanted to consolidate the services on my phone. It is mainly my new go-to for shareable to do lists (replacing the national be notes app)

They recently removed the option to easily select different heading sizes, which is really annoying and almost made me switch apps, but the biggest bug that bothers me is when you’re creating a new check list item the (add new item and press return to create another) previous word mashes up with the new word you’re typing (you can see the mangled word in autocorrect). So you either need to accept the word is wrong or go back and manually add a space.

Again, overall I think the app is acceptable for my purposes, but if I wasn’t already paying for Dropbox I probably wouldn’t use it as much as I do.
