Just stumbled upon a limited-time free iPad app and decided to try it out. Wacom released a sketchbook/writing app for the iPad called the Bamboo Paper. I must say sketching and writing on it is a very smooth experience. The current version which I’ve tested only allows for a single notepad, but it has a library function which is probably catering for multiple notepads in the future.
Features are pretty standard where you can choose blank or lined pages together with different ink thickness and colors. You can also email your notepad as a pdf and can also print it out over wifi. One thing I found a bit hard to use is the zooming and panning feature which feels a bit sluggish. You pinch it to zoom in and out and pan the page with 2 fingers. Sometimes I just end up messing it up with extra strokes but there’s a handy eraser to erase it and also an undo function.
Overall it’s a cool app which feels nicer to write on with an iPad stylus and it’s also free till end of June. So go check it out.
Cost: Free (till 31st June)
App size: 8 MB
