Welcome to the gorgeous, but oh-so-frustrating awesomeness that is Paper by Fifty-three.
While some features on this drawing app are just amazing, like blending colours and being able to print a book of your work, actually making work worth printing, on the other hand, is another matter.
While my drawing (see above) isn’t bad, I could have done a more exact job on ProCreate.
Also, with such a lacking selection of tools (and at $1.99 a pop per tool) I really think Paper needs to up their A game. Don’t get me wrong, it makes pretty pictures, and their way of mixing colours is unique, their drawing in a zoom window option is an innovative touch up idea, but that’s about it.
While the ad for turning your Paper projects into a real life book (Moleskin) shows detailed sketches, actually getting it to look anything that detailed will not be as easy as draw and print. The undo option (accurately named “rewind”) is an annoying two-finger circle motion that sometimes will make you scribble all over your drawing before you get it to activate and undo what you did.
I could go on, but really, you should try it for yourself and see if it’s worth the gimmicks.
