Customer Reviews

Forgetting true patrons.

This is probably the most disappointing update I've seen. I used to be a huge 53 fan since the day it launched, I even bought the Pencil. I haven't subscribed as a Patron because Paper has been progressively getting worse. Gestures are slow to respond, it's frustrating to use and it's often confused to what it wants to be. And frankly, I've just gotten back to paper and pencil.

This update comes out, and has a half implemented copy and paste feature. Where if you make a cut and hide the dock, good luck not deselecting your cut before you open the dock to hit the copy paste button. But worse, it's only available to 53 Patrons, and not patrons that purchased the Pencil or even the brushes when they were IAPs. I understand that you need to incentivize people to subscribe to become a Patron, and I'm 100% behind you on that. But 53, you seem to forget who your real patrons are.

Even if you said, for a limited time (say 6 months or a year), anyone that's purchased a Pencil or an IAP (when you had them), would get the perks of a Patron - that would make a huge difference. Especially when those perks are just copy and paste....

Sync doesn't work reliably

I have to manually restore back-ups in order for my iPhone to have the same documents as my iPad. Every. Time.

New backup leaves blank screen

Blank screen. Back up lost. This app is only for noodling. Don't trust it with anything more.
