  • Amazing notepad, frustratingly easy fix

    By Euphoricfob
    This app is my favorite digital notepad by far, I use it for everything. But can’t you just make it easier to make text notes? Very frustrating that every time I press plus to make a new note or whatever, I have to go back to change it.
  • Content Sync Please

    By macworm
    I love and live this app. But the fact that we still don’t have content sync in a world of iCloud is ridiculous. I’m tired of seeing new features that aren’t sync. I need to be able to have my content on iPhone and iPad. And I’m probably dreaming to ask for web access to jpegs of my drawings.
  • Awesome!

    I do my homework assignments on here sometimes, and I always get 100%s. Paper is a great way do instill inspiration and imagination. This app is a great way to get things done. Great work!
  • Great!

    By Art4sale
    Super fun to doodle and work on techniques! Love to play around and looking forward to new tutorials
  • Devs fixing bugs, but features are slow to arrive

    By Pixelflow
    Paper 4.0 is getting better all the time, but still lacks parity with version 3.0. Some quirky interface design choices remain. Wish they were more open about Roadmap.
  • 53 Paper Review

    By OutcastRacing
    53 Paper has like, little 3D books that have all blank pages and I get to draw on them. I love it!
  • Whatever happened it’s a beginning

    By Ghostmoth
    This poor app started so high, altered beyond the original design and then looked like a big comeback only to get the rug pulled out, i.e. we bought notebooks, we ended up with paper stacks, got notebooks again and got charged all over again. Got the covers back. Sheesh. Do I trust using this? What if a year later they decide to do it in paper airplanes. Sheesh.
  • Fantastic update!

    By jacobbwright
    Most of the time, updates add features but also increase complexity. This update keeps the past features but simplifies the interface back to the style I knew and loved. Thanks 53!
  • Almost Laughable Failure.

    By MatthewAV
    Wow, they’ve kept my former review pinned at the 1st to the 3rd review from the top. I’m flattered to motivate them. Semper Fi.
  • Update makes this unusable

    By Spc Miller
    Used to be great for story boards, but now this app is nothing short of frustrating! Can’t reorder pages, and missing all my old templates. Too bad, used to love this app.
