Paper lets you take simple text notes, sketch drawings, annotate photos, and more, just as if you had pen-and-paper.

Swipe to stylize. Paper's new text notes lets you swipe to create checklists, bullet points, and even headers. No matter if you need text notes, image annotations, or just some doodles — Paper now does it all. It works even better on the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil too, in case you want to turn your iPad into a full handwritten note-taking machine.

Image annotations

Image annotations. Now you can add images to Paper and annotate directly. It's never been easier to snap that photo of something, mark it up with some notes so others know what the heck you're talking about, and then send it off. Everyone will understand what you mean with clearly marked up and annotated photos.

What is it about?

This one burst onto the scene and immediately became the darling of artists and non-artists alike. It is just so easy to pick up and start using, with or without a stylus. Its free price tag makes it an absolute must-download, though of course, in-app purchases unlock even more features. It's simply beautiful on the iPad's retina display and a pleasure to use.

For those who...

  • Need simple text notes
  • Want to draw
  • Need to annotate photos

Not for those who...

  • Don't need to draw
  • Have a more complex and powerful app for their note-taking
  • Need reliable syncing across multiple devices

Why we love it

Paper is simple to use and comes packed with a ton of useful tools that make note-taking, photo annotation, and drawing easy.

App Store Description

Paper® is the immersive sketching app for capturing ideas anywhere. Over 25 million people have found their personal creative space in Paper—handwriting notes, drafting, diagramming, sketching, and giving form to their vision.

Sketch, draw, diagram, color, write notes: No matter what the inspiration, you can get it down on Paper. Capture your ideas in beautiful, 3D Journals that keep you focused and in your creative flow. Fast, gesture-based navigation makes it easy and natural to use Paper. Easily move your ideas into Paste, our app for creative teams.

Every tool tuned to perfection: draw, sketch, outline, write, color, diagram, cut, fill, and mix. Auto-correction snaps rough drawings to straight lines and crisp shapes for quickly drafting architectures and diagrams. Drop in templates like grid, lines, and storyboard to help structure your ideas.

Paper’s simple, quiet interface and gestural navigation offer you space to create without the distraction of controls and sliders. Pencil and touch superpowers let you draw, cut, and move without switching modes. Drag to easily rearrange pages, group notes with sketches, annotate photos, even "undo" with a gesture and stay in the flow.

Arrange your personal set of Journals with beautiful covers to customize your creative space. Expand your pages to view them as a grid for easy organization.
