    Best App EVER! Notetaking, drawing, brainstorming

    Hey all, just found Paper by 53 and WOW is all I can say. It is an incredible app. I've tried numerous note apps for so many reason, personal, professional, journaling, etc. and they all have some good points, some bad points, etc. But I just read about Paper by 53 last night and in 30 seconds I was sold and bought the app for $7.99. You don't have to buy all the features, but believe me you should. I used this all last night and this morning to create notes, plan out a meeting for Monday and draw and I am in no way shape or form an artist, but I feel like one if I want to and it makes your writing look gorgeous even if you don't have good handwriting. I HIGHLY recommend trying this for free and see what you think. I have no connection with the company at all. Just passing along a good thing!

    I agree. Magnificent app. I bought the full version based on the amount of feedback the developers are collecting for future updates. I'm hoping for brush size and opacity settings.

    I downloaded this app when it first was released and very soon after purchased all of the brushes. Amazing app! I have to agree its probably one of the best.

    (sigh) Been watching this app explode over the last week, and resisting, hoping someone would expose it as an overblown same-o-same-o; that I'd not be buying yet another drawing app.

    Woe is me. Seems I'm doomed to give it a try.

    I am completely obsessed with it! It is so easy to use and see what you have on each page and make sense of your notes. You can write, draw, etc. and then email your thoughts to yourself or others. It's just brilliantly done. I do wish you can email an entire book however, instead of a page at a time. Unless I'm missing something... anyone know if that's possible? Anyway, I used it all day and just love it. Beats all the other note taking apps in my opinion. Simple but powerful.

    Well, I like it so far. Just about the right balance between function and simplicity. Lets you doodle or sketch quick ideas (and make them pretty) without getting bogged down in menus and options.

    I'll have to play with it a few more days to decide if I'll actually use it. But if it hits the sweet spot for a person, I don't think the $7.99 price tag for all brushes is excessive.

    Did give it a try and I have to agree to OP that it is definitely a great app!
    Give up your resistence!

    I only have the original and watercolor brush. Haven't decided if I need other brushes and whether I'll use it instead of apps like Noteshelf. I like my Jot stylus with it. I don't find the need to sketch/draw, usually use photos to illustrate something so am not sure if it can meet my needs for a note app. Its more a fun app for me.
