Pen 'N Paper

By MadSwan, LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The perfect compliment to the built in Notes app. Take notes, draw sketches, scribble reminders, email a handwritten message to friends or family. Pen 'N Paper's handwriting is fast and responsive. It works great with fingers or a stylus.

Pen 'N Paper is now free, at least for awhile, to promote the paid Pen 'N Paper HD which is a fully universal version that works great on the iPad too.

Quick. Easy. Notes. That's It!

A sleek interface and intuitive design lets you easily add as many sketch notes as you like in a matter of seconds. Get in, sketch down your note, email it if you'd like, and get out. It's that easy.

We worked hard to perfect the handwriting in Pen 'N Paper so that it is fast and natural. Quickly switch between black ink, red ink, and an eraser that is just the right size.

Pen 'N Paper is simple, but it isn't missing the tools you need. It keeps 30 undo levels as you sketch. Also send a handwritten note or diagram through email or export to the photo library or clipboard.

Have an iPad as well? Get Pen 'N Paper HD that works on both your iPhone AND you iPad!

Note from the Developer:

You may be asking "but why would I need another sketch app?" Well, if you're anything like me, I am constantly needing to jot down quick notes and tidbits of info. That translates to tons of sticky notes and scrap pieces of paper all over my desk. What that also means is that I can never find the piece of information that I'm looking for when I need it. I wanted a place where I could consolidate all of that information and be able to easily find the info when I needed it. Sure there are plenty of other apps out there that let you choose pretty pen colors and let you pick a pretty flower paper to put your note on, but I don't want to deal with any of that. I want to get in, sketch my note and get out. As we were developing Pen 'N Paper I was able to start using it to sketch out ideas or write down the width and height of a particular element. It was amazing to see the clutter of little notes disappear from my desk. I could easily get to my information, and when I was done with it, I could delete it with one tap. I could also easily email some ideas to the other developer to get his feedback. If nothing else, I know Pen N Paper will help me out greatly as we continue to develop other apps, but hopefully you will also be able to find it extremely useful as well.

EZ 2 Use - Look Forward 2 Options...Possibilities!

A real note taking app that allows handwritten input instead of depending on keyboard entry. The functionality is there. It's accurate, straight forward, and clear. I look forward to seeing this app grow - more color choices (black & red currently available), more note colors (only blue available), more backgrounds (only a sticky note available), larger notes (only sticky note size available), more stroke options (only thin solid line available), and maybe even insertable emoticons (none available). This definitely delivers the basics. Now can it become a "go to" app by breaking out the bells & whistles? Such upgrades would surely warrant fans.

More colors please

Wish there was more colors and a scroll down option so I can make a longer shopping list. Would love to be able to draw but want more colors than black and red on a blue background plus it won't let me add to pre existing notes. Also it lags a little and that creates breaks in my writing. Please make better I love the concept!
