No sync across devices, no Mac app? Patrons? No thanks
This is not the award-winning version of this app that many people ALREADY PAID FOR. They ditched that version a year ago and have been struggling to make a notes app that actually makes sense. Now they are looking for patrons? After making it clear they will ignore their paying customers' requests and instead tell you what you want from their app? No way, FiftyThree. This version misses the mark by a long shot. The UI is not intuitive, and many features that used to work quite smoothly are now glitchy or hard to find. The great art tools are still great, but Paper is trying too hard to be all things at once. I still miss the old version of this app. Now, it seems FiftyThree misses the enthusiastic user base they had for that version, who were willing to pay to support their work. Too bad.
The app is supposed to be universal, but it does not sync between iPhone and iPad, and there is no app for Mac. That makes it less than practical or useful as a notes app. You cannot switch to portrait mode on iPad, which is frustrating to say the least. The frequent tweaks and updates seem all about coming up with new names for notes and notebooks, and new configurations for menus, and not much else. Now they want "patrons", and soon enough they will ask for subscribers. This app is not worth paying a monthly fee for, at all.
Patron? Are they ...
... kidding? But there is redemption--read on.
Mission creep and abandonment of early, unique features that worked PERFECTLY remain a big problem. Although the previous update was a slight improvement, and got the app back from 1 to 3 stars for me, I am going to knock them back to 2 stars for continuing to ignore their early adopters. I used to feel comfortable entering the app and just sketching, painting and doodling and putting together notebooks. I paid $7 or $8 for all of the tools while they were still charging for them. I didn't mind it when they went free a couple of months later.
If Fifty-Three is stuck on this business app idea, maybe they should consider something like a separate "Paper Classic" and revive the old notebooks and all of the other original caffeinated features. How hard could that be? I'd pay to be a patron of that!
I can only give it one star.... for what it is.
Back in early 2016 I got this app, thinking it would finally be my answer to looking for a good drawing pad. I opened the app, signed up, and it worked great! Until I had to do a factory reset on my iPad..... I re downloaded the app, hoping that all my old drawings would be there, but I logged in and it was just a light blue screen. Since this seemed to be a pretty good app, I thought I'd let it load. It sat there for about 30 minutes until I checked on it only to find that nothing had happened. I deleted it and re downloaded it again, and again, and again, only to get the same results... it's been like this for about three months now, considering it's now 2017. I don't know if there was a bad update to it as of right now, but I don't recommend wasting your time.
