When inspiration happens, put it on Paper. Paper is the best way to capture and connect your notes, photos, and sketches. Create checklists, spotlight details in photos, and sketch diagrams with unbeatable speed and ease — Paper is like a wall of sticky notes for everything that inspires you.

Paper’s swipe-to-style formatting makes creating checklists and notes faster and more fun than any other app. The photo spotlight tool helps you quickly clarify essential details.

Bring text, photos, and sketches together. Keep your ideas organized, and see everything in one place to make connections you can’t see in siloed lists.

Paper’s unique visual notes are designed to help you get your point across quickly and precisely. Paper also lets you share your ideas any way you want to, including as professionally-formatted PDFs, Keynote and Powerpoint presentations.

The original iPad version of Paper is a winner of Apple’s App of the Year and is used by millions around the world. The Universal version adds support for iPhone, in addition to text, photos, and sketching, all beautifully designed for touch. Paper is completely free with no in-app purchases.

What's New in Version 3.3.1

This update fixes a few bugs in the Reorder Spaces dialog, one bug with the Diagram tool, and also ensures that your photos are properly saved when you exit the canvas quickly.

Passcode / sync

Crazy you would promote an app for iPad pro which obviously compliments other devices but not have any sync. It you synced with Evernote or Dropbox automatically this would be a killer app. But having my meeting and business notes locked in this device and to a paper 53 account is too risky. Penultimate is the pick atm until sync is working. Having passcode so anyone can not just browser through client notes would also be good.


Everything is really good but can you add a feature that auto colours between the lines? That would be really good because I make art requests in a forum and it takes too long to colour everything in by hand. Thanks!

Cannot import more than one image

Please add this to your future update.

Be able to import more images to one paper.

Have a basic layering function in image section like I'm be able to bring an image on top of a drawing or in between two shapes.

Would be much much more functional if those are added in the future.


PS: Is there a way to change brush size at all?
