Editors' Review


Paper enables you to express your creativity, using a wide range of drawing tools. No matter your skill level, this app helps you create stylish pieces.


Automatic stylization: Paper's included drawing tool is a fountain tip, so everything you draw gains a certain flourish.

Beautiful interface: You can visually select the type of drawing tool that you want, and then select your color with a single tap. It's elegantly laid out, very easy to use, and very intuitive.

Rewind feature: By rotating your fingers in a counterclockwise motion, you can "rewind" through the previous actions you've executed. Rewind is easy to use and allows you to undo a mistake without damaging your work.


Very limited free version: The free version of Paper is very limited. The worst part is how they flaunt all the tools you don't have access to. It's a very cleverly executed way to get you to pay more for an expanded toolkit, but it makes it a little more difficult to just sit back and enjoy the free version.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a great drawing application, Paper is well worth a download. The fountain tool creates beautiful sketches and is fun to play with, whether you're an artist, a designer, or just looking to have some fun.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 3.6.0
This update to Paper introduces a fast navigation sidebar for quickly searching and browsing between your work. We've improved the card preview to show your creations full screen so you can swipe between cards without accidentally marking them. This update also includes ink enhancements for Apple Pencil and a stylus settings option to use your finger to cut and paste.SIDEBAR AND SEARCHWe've redesigned our basic navigation structure to be more efficient and we've added search. Moving between your work is now more like a sprint than a marathon. FULL SCREEN PREVIEWSwipe through your work full screen. We've made the previews in Paper big and beautiful so you don't have to enter edit mode to see the details. INK ENHANCEMENTS We heard your feedback and adjusted Paper's inks for Apple Pencil. The previous ink pooling and transparency levels have been restored for the Write tool. The Draw tool's pressure response has been improved at flat drawing angles. QUICK FINGER CUT & PASTEIn what we've dubbed "scissor hands", connecting Pencil by FiftyThree or Apple Pencil to Paper now gives you the option to automatically use the Cut tool when your finger touches the canvas. Your stylus can draw or write with the selected ink tool, and your finger can quickly cut and move pieces of your sketch. If you use Paper to take notes or arrange diagrams, you may find this particularly useful. To turn this feature on, go to Pencil Settings and select "Cut" from the list of options for your finger.Enjoy.The FiftyThree Team...Love Paper? Please give us a review!
