Description

“Ideal for jotting down notes, sketches, or your next big idea, this phenomenal app sets a new standard” - Apple App of the Year award winner

Used by more than 13 million people worldwide, Paper turns your iPad into a digital notebook, with everything you need to bring your ideas to life. Best of all, Paper is now completely free.

IDEAS BEGIN ON PAPER.
“App of the Year & Apple Design Award Winner”

Sketch out a new product design, chart your progress, or outline a great business plan. Paper is the essential digital notebook that works the way you think, with no fussy settings or distractions. In addition to its five original tools to Sketch, Write, Draw, Outline, and Color, Paper also includes Think Kit, allowing you to create diagrams, charts, and wireframes at the speed of thought. Paper’s tools, along with unlimited, secure, cloud backup are all offered for free with no in-app purchases.

CREATE WITH PENCIL
“The Best iPad Stylus” — Wired and The Verge

Express your creativity more naturally with Pencil—FiftyThree’s handcrafted Bluetooth Smart stylus. Pencil’s unique Surface Pressure technology allows you to use Pencil’s tapered shape to fluidly control the width and strength of lines. You can also flip to erase, blend with your finger, and rest your hand comfortably on the screen with world-class palm rejection.

JOIN THE MIX
“People are at their best when they create.”

You don’t need to be an artist, or even know how to draw to be creative and use Mix, the sharing network built right into Paper. Mix takes away what’s scary about facing the blank page and leaves you with a fun place to get inspired and share your ideas. Find the perfect template for a task, learn a new skill, or make new connections with collaborators around the world. Mix is where the world creates together.

What's new in version 2.5.3

Think Kit is here! Now Paper gives you the power to create diagrams, charts, and wireframes at the speed of thought. Think Kit adds three new tools—Diagram, Cut, and Fill. Powered by the Intention Engine™, Think Kit helps you quickly create powerful, personable graphics to express any idea, and continue seamlessly into your favorite presentation app.

Diagram
Create flow diagrams, org charts, axis lines, and wireframes. Diagram is a smart pen that transforms circles, rectangles, and triangles into corrected “smart shapes” that you can easily fill and arrange. You can also draw straight lines and connectors between smart shapes.

Fill
Add color to your ideas. Quickly create freeform color fills for trend lines and pie charts, or tap on a smart shape to fill it.

Cut
Rearrange shapes and create patterns. Select anything and move it with the Cut tool. Tap with selected objects to copy.

The Think Kit tools live just to the left of the tools you’ve come to know and love, and you can get back and forth by swiping sideways on the tool tray.


Connected to your workflow
To go along with the release of Think Kit, we’ve also redesigned Paper’s sharing functionality. Now you can create beautiful, custom formatted presentations that open in your favorite apps, including PowerPoint and Keynote, and save to Dropbox and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Try it out!
Think Kit’s Intention Engine™ is based on years of research by FiftyThree, but we’re including the entire Think Kit toolset for free in this version of Paper. Think Kit works best with Pencil, our award-winning Bluetooth stylus. Get one today at http://shop.fiftythree.com.

Once you’ve had a chance to try Think Kit, we’d be grateful if you’d leave us a review in the app store! A good review helps us more than you probably imagine, and now that reviews go into our Slack channel, we read and often talk about every one of them.

Other Improvements
Lots of bug fixes and stability improvements.

Makes you feel like you can draw, whether you can or not. A truly beautiful app that gets out of its own way and lets you play with paper and tools with which to draw and color.
