No sync across devices, no Mac app? No thanks
This is not the award-winning version of this app, they ditched that one a year ago and have been struggling to make a notes app that actually makes sense. 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.
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. I still miss the old version of this app.
Is pretty noice
Paper by 53 is a great app for mapping when I don't have access to a computer. It has a simple interface and can be navigeted easilly.
But there are a few things to consider adding that will make this app a little better.
One would be the Addition of layers.
Layers (in my opinion) are essential for advanced drawing, as they allow you to have certain things on top of each other that need to be layered (For example, Flag maps. They require at least 3 layers: one for the map, one for the flag and one for the outline of the borders). With one layer, it is impossible to achieve this.
The second thing is a thinner drawing utensil. I find the other ones too thick, and it is simply to hard to trace things precisely. Something like a fine pencil would be very helpful.
Finally, a universal bucket. With the current bucket, you can only fill things you have sketched, which is a bummer. If i were to make a shape with the paintbrush, for example, and i want to fill it, I would have to do it manuelly with the paintbrush, which is just tedious.
New version is a terrible mess
This used to be my absolute favorite app. I bought a freaking $60 pencil stylus for it for god's sake. And now this mess is foisted upon us. Disorganized, terribly implemented, no journal view, which is what made this app so great to use. Now there's a notes "feature"? Charts and graphs? This was the app that famously restricted the color palette to ensure a particular painting and drawing style - and now it looks like some lame app you got free with Microsoft office lite. How far we have fallen! Please, for the love of God, go back to what this app was all about. I feel stupid for spending money on the pencil now, and for telling everyone about the app, you made a fool out of me.
