Bamboo Paper - Notebook

By Wacom

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Bamboo Paper is a digital notebook app to help you capture your creative moments and thoughts. With this app taking notes, sketching and drawing is as straightforward and as simple as using a real notebook.

The app offers a selection of six expressive pen tools for writing, sketching, coloring and marking. Wacom’s vector based inking engine allows unlimited zooming and scaling without quality loss.

Choose a notebook style that fits your personal preferences and activities the best. Four carefully designed styles offer the best experience for visual thinking, note- taking, journaling and art creation. Each notebook style comes with a selection of paper types offering a variety of textures, colors and grids.

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

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

Export your creations to a variety of cloud services (Dropbox, Evernote) and social media (Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook).

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

What's New in Version 2.5.1

Set your writing posture to enjoy improved accuracy of your Bamboo® Stylus fineline™ or Intuos® Creative Stylus 2.

Close but no cigar

I've been using other note taking apps and so when I downloaded Bamboo Paper, my expectations were already high - especially as their styli seemed to be the more responsive on the market.

I am using a Bamboo Stylus Solo (which is the budget end of the range). Using this, the app is responsive and there is no discernible lag when writing - actually one of the best apps I've tried, in this respect.

In terms of the options of the app (paper selection, pen type, ink colour, etc.) I found this fine and comparable to other apps.

However, the zoom function is limited - once you are in zoom mode, you have to manually mover around the page, and this can get very disorientating.

The whole page/book navigation feature is nice, but if you are navigating a large number of pages, this starts to get unwieldy.

Some suggestions for improvement:
- when in zoom, have a carriage return
- have an option to view/navigate thumb nails from a grid.

The real benefit of Bamboo Paper is that it is free. This is why I gave it four stars.


This app improves with every update. I wasn't keen at first as it came with my drawing board "Bamboo" and didn't use it for a long time but of late I have gone back to using it, it still needs more thought, but it is getting better so long as they keep expanding with the paper, not other silly bits of apps. So keep it going and don't lose it the idea of Paper with Bamboo.


An excellent app that meets all my needs. I use it to sketch out my thoughts and ideas and it works fantastic for me. For those that moan about this app I suggest you look at your own lack of creativity. Those with a creative mind can make amazing work with this app. A bad worker always tries to blame his tools.
