I’ve always thought that iPads are underused when it comes to handwriting and sketching purposes – mostly because of their lack of a precise and comfortable stylus. But even without the perfect input device, FiftyThree just released their awesome sketching and writing app for iPads.
Paper is a free app for iPads that allows you to write, sketch, and color beautiful images, preferably using a stylus. It also offers full support for the Retina display on the 3rd Gen iPad. I’ve seen quite a few different drawing and painting apps, but none of them seem as clean and fluid as Paper. The UI efficiency sort of reminds me of the Clear app. The best part of the app is the rewind feature, which lets you playback what you just created. The watercolors are also pretty nicely rendered.
The app is free and you can easily share your creations through Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter. However, in order to use all features, you’ll need to make some in-app purchases – since some of the brushes are sold as add-ons. And at $2 a piece, it can add up quickly. Still, Paper is a cool app with a beautiful UI, and you can check it out for free now over on the iTunes App Store.
