Bamboo Paper - Notebook

By Wacom

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Turn your iPad into a paper notebook and capture your ideas everywhere, anytime. Taking notes, sketching, and drawing is as straightforward and simple as using real pen and paper.

Use a selection of six expressive pens and brushes for writing, sketching, coloring, and marking. Wacom´s Universal Ink technology WILL gives you the best drawing and writing experience available on your iPad and lets you easily exchange your notebooks between Bamboo Paper on other mobile platforms without any loss of quality or ability to edit.

Enrich your notes or journal with photos. Add images or photos to your page and sketch or write on top.

With Inkspace your notebooks are automatically synced to the Wacom Cloud. This new Wacom Cloud feature also lets you view and easily share all your Bamboo Paper notebooks from any web browser through the Inkspace web portal. You can also export and share your work to a variety of other cloud services and social media (Dropbox, Evernote, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, etc.).

With our unique zoom function, you can draw or write fine lines and fit more notes onto the page.

For the best result and experience, use Bamboo Paper together with a Bamboo Stylus. For advanced note-taking or sketching, try the thin-tip pressure sensitive stylus products from Wacom: Bamboo Stylus fineline and Intuos Creative Stylus 2

Prefer to start on real paper? Capture your ideas with pen on paper on this new smart folio by Wacom and digitally shape and refine them later in Bamboo Paper.

Can't make in app purchases work

This is a great app, and my daughter and I both love it and use it frequently. For whatever reason, I cannot seem to be able to purchase any of the tools from inside the app, and the in-app purchase option is missing from the App Store. It also seems like online support is only available for hardware products. I tried emailing and got an auto-response back that basically said "thanks for your feedback, but we don't address individual customer issues"

Still, this is my go-to app for sketching and note-taking. Please fix the in-app purchases!

Disappointed 😔😔😔

This is pretty much a notebook. Good for note takers but not the greatest app for art. There are limited colors (no color wheel swatch) and unless you pay for the stylus ($30-$70), you're stuck with limited tools (pen, pencil, marker thing) and there is no visible way to add layers the way professionals would. I bought the $70 stylus and makes little to no difference than using my finger or a dollar store stylus. It just unlocks 3 more tools (brush, watercolor, crayon). Overall, big disappointment and reluctant to use a wacom product for art ever again. Also, I'm pretty skeptical and worried for privacy with that suspicious contract we are forced to agree to at the beginning. Still concerned about that.

Great App but Can't Restore Purchases

I used this app a lot with my Apple Pencil. The textures of the paper and smoothness of the pencil and application make this a great app for drawing or wring down thoughts. I journaled in the app for awhile.

The downside is that I bought all of the notebooks and pencils but when I needed to redo load it, there was no way to restore my purchases. Apple support said to talk to Wacom(the developer) and they in turn sent me back to apple. That being said, I signed up for the Wacom Cloud in hopes that would assist in the problem, but it did not. So, it is a great app, but I don't recommend buying anything!
