*** The Story of Paper ***

On March 31st, 2010 we released an app named Litho Shop which began with the phrase, "No need for Paper!" Litho Shop is a mildly complex app with real paper textures and design tools.

By 2012 we began working on a pure, simple, inclusive app to be the polar opposite, we decided to give it the most basic of names, Paper. The poetry was not accidental. Paper would be the opposite of Litho Shop.

We followed Apple's Rules, that is, we went into our Developer account and created the App "Paper". The name Paper was assigned to us by Apple as NO ONE ELSE was using it. We worked on and submitted the app within Apple's given timeline and guidelines.

While working over many months, as is the norm, other apps with "Paper" in their name came and went. How? Do to glitches in Apple's system. A Developer can add extra words to an un-available name, or game the territory settings to give the illusion of apps of the same name, and even change the name of an older app and enjoy what looks like an earlier first use.

Well, there may still be others around, or maybe they've moved on with another name, either way, welcome to the 1st, and what should be the only, iOS Paper.

Excellent App

This is the best app I have found for getting quick sketches, ideas together.
Using it for storyboards and to encourage a 5 and a 6 year old to dip their toes into Art.


Love it but...

Why isn't it the same as the ipad version? This makes me sad.

Not bad

The benefit of this app over other paper apps out there is the style and texture of the paper. Unfortunately you cant group your drawings into journals/sketchbooks as you can in other free paper apps. However, additional brushes and pens etc are included which is nice. In saying that, again other free paper apps work just as well. If your looking for that extra visual edge to you digital drawings, it's probably worth 69p.
