Simply Phenomenal - Both Paper and Pencil
"Reviews"? Where you're going... you won't need "reviews"... This app could have cost 10 times the price and I still would have made the purchase.
Save yourself the time of reading the countless stellar reviews and just download it - you will not be disappointed. Elegant design, uber-functional UI (user interface), and I can't even begin to detail how positive my experience was with FiftyThree's customer service has been - I had the pleasure of an entertaining exchange with the customer service staff via email about replacement parts for my Pencil due to my obscene use of the device which has become indispensable to me. I'm awestruck - love the way it writes and draws! I use both Paper and the Pencil stylus which I purchased via the website. - I scored the walnut one which is an absolute joy to use. I now use my Jot stylus to prop up the left side of my cable box which is missing a little rubber bumper and used to lean to the side a bit... I'll probably never use it again for its actual intended purpose now that I have the Pencil Stylus. To the Team at FiftyThree - Great job on the products... You've set the bar pretty high.... Please keep it up....
Lots of Potential, But...
This app is really neat, the ink and paint acts and blends very realistically. The rewind tool is inventive and easily accessible, however it can be touchy at times. In addition, the option to print all of your work into a physical book with the cover of your choosing was very nice. The color tool is by far my favorite part of the app, well worth the purchase.
However, the lack of layers is almost a deal breaker! Please add layers! Beyond that, there are only a few other small gripes I have with the app such as variable tool and maybe a few more tools like chalk, airbrush and paint(watercolor is really nice, but it’s hard to beat good ole fashioned paint). The other bit is that compared to other professional apps with all the bells and whistles, this app is overpriced. This app is $8.98 for all the tools. Procreate and Sketchbook are $5.99 and $4.99 respectively, and are arguably better than this application. The price alone costed this app nearly two stars!
Is this app worth getting? Maybe? It still has room to grow and hopefully the developers at 53 become more proactive. I have ordered the Pencil 53, this may change the whole experience and I will update my review afterwards.
Paper is a game changer
The moment I drew my first line in paper I knew I had to have an iPad. In the years and updates since, I've only come to love it more.
Drawing in Paper is incredibly fluid and intuitive, the tools are perfect complements (and worth every penny), and the page motion and organization system is so beautiful that merely showing people the app has earned me more than a few art and design contracts.
People complain that there are no layers, that the tools have preset sizes, that the app doesn't do x, y, and z that another app does. All of those statements may be true, and yet it doesnt change the fact that while drawing in any medium will make you a better artist, creating with restrictions will improve your imagination.
