Ratings and Reviews


Perfect for me

This is just what I was looking for - a way to make custom graph paper, some that's not available off the shelf. If you're wanting more than that, yes, you'll be disappointed.


Can’t draw on grid lines

I use grid paper for sketching plans for woodworking, but was disappointed that this only allows you to shade in each square, and not draw lines along the grid lines. You can’t even draw a line across but you have to tap each square individually.
For me, it’s a total waste.

Developer Response

Version 1.14.0, now adds the capability to annotate the coloring pages with both text and lines. So, besides coloring in a pattern on your grid, one can add notes and lines (freehand or straight) to highlight things. You can edit note text, color, font size and placement. One can edit line color, line width and placement.

Very Useful App & And Superb Service!

I downloaded this app to help me in creating knitting designs. With it, I can precisely graph my personal gauge with the particular yarn I plan to use. The standard graph papers I can find in stores only have squares in 1:1 ratios. I do not knit in 1:1.

Initially, I had a problem setting up subdivisions to view my charts in 1" x 1" blocks with 3 rows across and 4 rows down. So I contacted NNN's support. That was yesterday. Looked for the reply today, only to find it had been answered - yesterday!

The reply included instructions to make the graph paper I needed. With step-by-step illustrations! However, one step was omitted, choosing a color to unlock divisions controls. I managed to get that on my own.

Nevertheless, the quality and timeliness of the support was some of the best I have ever experienced. (And I need a lot of help. Lol)

If one needs to make custom graph paper, I highly recommend this app!
