This is not Paper 53, it's Piles 35

If you begin an app as beautiful little notebooks and add on colored backgrounds, go back, even smudge, these are simple additions to make the UI a little smoother. At that point you should have stopped and left us our happy little app. The minute I opened that so-called upgrade and saw weird random stacks of paper, all the diagramming tools I thought "this is not my beautiful app!" I bought an app with notebooks. Now I can't use it w/o an account, can't use it on my pro at all. The crap dead ink is another. I don't get it. Why didn't you just create a new app and charge your $8 for a singular audience who wants this like other developers. Then the little notebooks version would still be there . This should be 2 apps not a horrible de-evolution. I know,it's too late. I'd pay to have my old app just up to the point you added the Line/arrows.

(Fixed)Broken Pencil

Smudge is now a setting for while using Pencil. I admit to not being too sharp for not being able to find the settings icon. Stumbled on it on accident.
This update broke one of my favorite features of this app and Apple Pencil, the app knowing when my finger is on the screen while using Apple Pencil. Very useful for blending and much easier to zoom as well. I like to zoom in while using colored pencils, now it's very hard to do so without the app thinking I'm trying to make a pencil line with my finger. Also my wife did some wonderful things with water colors with the old functionality. Please fix and the app is 5 star again!

Apple Pencil, Syncing & Erase Dial

So the Apple Pencil finger blend/rejection is not working consistently. I have found that If the app detects you palm and the pencil for a short period then it will reject your finger even when you move your palm, but there seems to be a time limit that causes it to go back. Case in point, if the option is turn on it should either blend or completely reject 'everything' except the Apple Pencil. 2 Stars because I like the app. I just find the constant stray finger marks extremely annoying.
Syncing is also I feature that is sorely missing, maybe start charging for the app in order to better support it?
The 2 finger tap backwards seems to work consistently, its the 2 finger dial rotation that needs some work.
