The notes and to sketch app Paper from developer FiftyThree is finally available for the iPhone. The app lets you easily create and edit notes and put your ideas on digital paper.
All your ideas on virtual paper
Note apps are plentiful for the iPhone and iPad and all have more or less the same goal: to increase your productivity by giving you ideas in a clear and organized way. Paper is no exception in that regard because this new app allows you with a few swipes and taps to enter notes, add photos, drawings and annotations. You can also highlight details of your pictures with a light pressure on the button.
But the way Paper does this on the relatively small screen of the iPhone, is particularly fine. The app was already available for the iPad and developer FiftyThree has had to tinker a lot to it to also make it functional on Apple’s smartphone. This has led to a note-taking app that in principle is not inferior to the tablet version. You have all the editing tools at your disposal (including various types of pins) and can quickly and easily create a list or reminder, where the main parts are highlighted.
Of course it is also possible to use only text and, for example, draw a to-do list with bullets. By swiping to the right on a line, you can make a bullet or task from there. Notes are brought together in stacks of paper that you can search and categorize. That happens with beautiful animations. The stacks are equipped with a name and easy to view in a scrolling list from the home screen of Paper.
Finally, the app gives you the ability to create PDFs or share your ideas via Keynote or PowerPoint. The beautiful interface, simple swipe controls and visibility ensure that paper is really worth it for those who want to try a different note-taking app. You handwritten notebook can at least in the trash.
