Paper by FiftyThree has been updated again just hours ago, introducing a new sharing functionality and at least a couple of other changes.
A former AppAdvice App of the Week title holder, Paper is a sketchbook app for iPad that’s gorgeous both on paper and in reality. Making use of an unapologetically minimalist design, Paper lets you create journals to chronicle your thoughts and help bring your ideas to fruition. Equipped with a variety of virtual writing and drawing tools, Paper offers flexibility for your creativity.
The latest update to Paper is only its second update since its release late last March. Last month, the app was updated with Camera Roll export, Twitter hashtag customization, and a quick introductory video. This month, the app’s sharing component is further improved with the addition of automatic PDF conversion. Post-update, you can now share an entire journal in PDF format via email. Also, you can opt to open the PDF version of your journal using other apps, such as iBooks, Adobe Reader, and Dropbox.

A distinct innovation introduced by Paper at launch is its special undo gesture, which is shown in the how-to video above. Usually referred to as the “rewind,” it lets you undo your recent actions simply by making counterclockwise circles on the screen with your two fingers. The update adds, aside from the obligatory bug fixes, deeper history to the rewind gesture in that it lets you undo more on a page than previously possible.
Paper by FiftyThree is available in the App Store for free. It comes with Draw, Sketch, Write, Outline, and Color tools. The first, Draw, is free to use, while the others may be unlocked via in-app purchase.
