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.

Too much crashing for basic functions

I use bamboo paper to take notes during class lectures. I like to draw the diagrams sometimes using different colors and widths. I used to love this app and recommend it to friends who want a light but functional note taking app.

Since the new update, the only cool thing to come out of bamboo paper is the logo. Every time I try to change the pen color, my app crashes. Every time I try to go back to another page To read notes, the app crashes. Please fix this now. This app has become barely functional and I'm apprehensive every time I open it up.

I might switch to another app that supports my fine line. Thanks for creating the stylus, but it's a bit sad that the native app of the stylus doesn't even work.

The Choir Preaches

What the EFF Wacom?! Like my previous reviewers, I was a loyal and regular user of the app pre this latest upgrade. Most of my introduction into digital drawing was due to the immediacy and lightness this app offered. Now it just crashes or goes brick all the time, getting worse the longer I work on it. I don't trust this app anymore - I literally have to screenshot every few minutes! Not ideal when drawing from real life… or doing anything for that matter. What a time to offer what seems to be beta-testing on your core users. You think we're gonna stick around when the IPad Pro comes out?! Fix this ASAP or else there are 3 more apps I'm gonna run to.

One of your biggest users ... But ..

I'm a big fan of this app , however there have been some small problem that kept brewing lately , and I want to keep having this app so ..
First of all ,there's this major glitch where the app closes every time I pick a color. You need to fix these bugs asap !!
Second, I would really like it if you guys extended your palette and added more colors.. There's a great number of artists users here after all!!
Third , having a ruler or a scale inside the app would be awesome. Layers too if possible .
Fourth, I wish you could share our artworks more often on social media. And I wish you participated in social media all together more often.
Last but not least , please go back to the original icon design.. It was awesome!
