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 ambitious note-taking or sketching, try the pressure sensitive Intuos Creative Stylus.

Paper take notice...

Paper was the pioneer and gave us an incredibly simple interface for sketching on the ipad. This is obviously a direct rip-off but with some noticeable improvements that are hard to ignore.
I like:
-tools are almost identical but somehow more responsive??
- the lined paper options are great
- nice to have crayons
- finally able to change my tool size
I truly miss:
- flipping the page is still better in Paper as is pinching to zoom and move pages around
- moleskin theme is hard not to love in Paper
- zoom is better in Paper
- the paint mixer is so amazing in Paper

Overall Paper is still closest to a natural sketchbook experience and I love it but I'll be watching this one. It's good in so many ways!

It's highly unlikely but if Wacom add Adonit Jot Touch support to this app I'll buy all the extras and won't look back. The Wacom Creative stylus is OK but expensive and I prefer the more precise tip of the adonit jot touch. As a daily Wacom user for the last 20 years I'm surprised they didn't get this right!

Paper hasn't added new features very quickly and they don't support any relevant styluses aside from their own which isn't pressure sensitive. Nobody likes a black box.

Not a convert yet but man is this the best response yet to Paper. Well done Wacom.

Great for Artists - Needs a few tweaks

Bought this with the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus for my daughter because she loves drawing.

She was frustrated that the notebooks didn’t come in landscape mode. We use the work around of locking the orientation of the iPad so she can draw in landscape mode, but it would be nice to have custom page presets for different ratios.

I also found it frustrating to thumb thru her journals and not damage the artwork. I guess you have to swipe along the bottom. Maybe a kid version of this app, or better safe controls would keep me from destroying her sketches by accident.

Since this is her first stylus, it seems like better reporting of how well the Stylus is working would help. A list of supported apps that now support the stylus would help. Bluetooth pairing, battery strength in more detail would help troubleshoot.

Share choice leaves out Apple Message. Please add it. Doesn’t appear to be an iCloud or DropBox sync support, or if it is there I didn’t see it.

Dissapointing improvement after all this time

After my last review on 2012 , i compare this again to some other hand writing apps, and i still think that this is the most responsive hand writing app compare to other. It is very nice to write with almost no lag whatsoever.

The problem is, other apps improve so much within these past year with all new improvement and features. It makes this app, that improve so little, quite undesirable. Make the no lag response such a waste.

The wrist protection is still far worse then other apps. Its better than before, but it still leaves so many accidental marking and not auto erase it.

There is still no text input option.

There still no cut copy and paste function.

People who uses other apps are welcome to try this app and see what i mean with the no lag response, you will be amazed, and then will be quickly let down by the lack of simple features in this app.

I gave it 4 stars in 2012 hoping that it will improve. After all this time, only minor functionality improvement, i gotta mark it down to 2 stars.
