Paper is an iPad app for sketching and creating free-hand outlines. I’ve seen a lot of people use it over the last year, but I couldn’t get myself to pay for it when there were other good sketching apps available for free. Last night I received an email from Paper’s marketing department in which they announced that the app is now completely free to use. All of the in-app purchases have been made free too.
Paper can be used to sketch notes, draw pictures, or write outlines in notebooks in the app. I like using apps like Paper because sketching notes allows me to create outlines in any format that I like, quickly connect ideas through arrows and lines, and illustrate ideas when words aren’t enough. Sketchnoting on an iPad enables me to edit and share sketched notes more quickly and easily than ever before.
