Great app 5/5
This app is really cool I just wish it had peach so I can color my characters
Paper Pro 5/5
Kind of disappointed that I paid for paper pro & I can’t even use it YET!
Neato for Purty Art Stuff! 1/5
Wow, they’ve kept my former review pinned at the 1st to the 3rd review from the top. I’m flattered to motivate them.
Too expensive too much troubleshooting 2/5
I have brand new ipad and apple products but even though my apple pen works on free apps like sketch icant seem to pair my apple pen and i dropped $100 on the year subscription.
I love this app!! I’ve written 6 childrens books with them!!
Love this app 4/5
By The balanced movie critic
This is the easiest app to use but is also incredibly elaborate with tons of cool features. I love it and use it on all my devices though my iPad Pro and pencil it’s amazing.
NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS TRICKERY 1/5
WHILE I WAS BROWSING THE INTERNET THE PAPER 53 APP UPDATED ON ITS OWN WITHOUT ME EVER GOING TO THE APP STORE TO UPDATE IT. AND NO I DID NOT MISTAKENLY UPDATE THE APP. I WAS FINE, HAPPY AND PLEASED WITH THE PREVIOUS VERSION WITHOUT EVEN THINKING ABOUT UPDATING AND WHILE BROWSING THROUGH MY HOME SCREEN, IVE NOTICED A NEW UPDATED PAPER 53 ICON ON MY PAGE. I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS, THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME TRICKERY GOING ON WITH DEVELOPERS POSSIBLY UPDATING APPS WITHOUT THE PURCHASERS KNOWLEDGE. I AM VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT THIS AND WANT MY APP REVERTED TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well done 5/5

I am a fan.
I like the latest upgrades 5/5
By Qiao Feng Charlie
I began using paper in 2015 as a tool to refresh my water color skills without wasting so much paper. Result; my water colors are returning to the levels I enjoyed years ago before work interfered with my art, however the nature of digital ink lured me into this new medium.
The ability to undo/redo, save and go on knowing that I can return to that point in time to try new combinations and the ability to utilize my art in a variety of modes tiny miniatures to large color water color paper digital prints. In 2016 I think I also fell in love with the 53 stylus. The ability to morph from paint to smudge & blend like charcoal while in blue tooth mode and hold my longtime favorite drawing tool - a carpenters pencil... or so it seems.
This latest upgrade, the ability to choose from a variety of brush/tip sizes is just what I’ve needed. I still do some water color, but for portability my iPad Pro and stylus allow me to sketch when the spirit moves me. In fact I sometimes ‘touch up’ colors by importing a photo that been rendered in greys and apply fresh color. One such original from 50 years storage, freshen up in a several different color modes is my best seller.
Truly a marvelous tool. Thus far I’ve not tried the Apple Stylus (spendy & doesn’t seem as intuitive to a long time carpenter pencil sketcher) and free trials of other drawing painting apps have not measured up.
In sum, this app does what I wanted - allows me to relax, experiment, do over and produce “high quality digital water colors”
Thank you for let me play in your app I think is great
Great app ever for drawing and writing journal 5/5
I love this app,
프로 유료 결제했다 5/5
기본적으로 드로잉앱이지만 여러 템플릿도 제공해줘 필기하기 좋음. 노트커버와 브러쉬 크기때문에 프로버전 구독했다.
Kind of disappointed 2/5
I wish there was a way to customize the pages. I want to be able to see the dots even when the page is zoomed all the way out. Also not a huge fan of how the pages are set up. It would be great if there was an option to work on one single page instead of two pages at the same time. Also the brushes are not very precise and don’t respond well with the Apple Pencil. Other than that, it is a decent app. I like that it uses actual books for organizing. Visually, the app is stunning. I will continue to use the app in hopes that developers will continue to improve it and add more features.
Lacks organization of notebooks... 3/5
Overall this is a good drawing and notes app, but the home page shows a bunch of notebooks with only one title. Without pro, you could use colors to code which notebook is for which project, but you have to select the notebook to see the title. They should have a list view or have the titles float with the notebooks so you don’t have to go to each one to see what it is called.
Other than that, this is a solid app with some good features.
Awesome app 5/5
I’ve been using this app for years. It’s been easy to use and very addictive.
I have used 53 Paper since it first came out, and it just keeps getting better. Clean, simple, uncomplicated, easy, fun.
Well done and worth it.
Upgrade 4.0 a Little Bumpy, But Nice Recovery 5/5
Converting to 4.0 was a little bumpy, but they have recovered nicely and app is working pretty well now. They continue to add features that are very nice.
Used t be the best 3/5
This used to be the best note-taking app, bar none. I liked its ease of use, its inutile nature, and its many features, especially the ability to transfer notes in several formats across different devices, and the ability to organize notes by groups and transfer these in full too. I stayed with iOS mainly because it’s not available in Android. Then came the latest update, and it all changed. The new layouts are flashy, but counterintuitive. Some functions are available in one layout only, which is really strange. You enter one category and it’s difficult to move to others. And now the ability to transfer entire groups seems to be limited the paid version. I didn't think I would say that, but maybe it’s time to change. All the best features are gone.
Great app 5/5
Really having fun 4/5
I didn’t give it 5 , but I’m no artist. I wish the snap to round and parallel lines was better because I rarely draw anything straight enough for it to tell they are side by side. My fault not theirs. I have loved it for trying out Jewelry designs, to rearranging furniture. Have fun!
Just keeps getting better 5/5
Started using Paper by FiftyThree when it first came out...liked it then and even more now with each improvement. More to come...can’t wait!
But I miss the One Note Feature... 4/5
I have 2, 53 pencils that my husband and I share for the price of one Apple Pencil (that doesn’t have an eraser) I am in HR and documenting is a must. I wish 53 would bring back the option to connect one note. Not being able to use this for my very important quick notes has been an adjustment that I’m not to fond of... please please please bring it back!
PS. What the junk happened to the mix? Why is that gone too? :(
Good ideas but too simplified and empty. Needs more. Not free enough. 2/5
By Emerald 26 26
It’s a beautiful app but it’s missing layers. There is also that almost everything costs money.
I’ve Given Up on This App 1/5
After seeing an update was available I thought to give it another try. Instead everything is still frustrating. I found myself saying ‘no, stop’ to all the stupid design and UI decisions. I’d actually pay for the pre-4.0 version, but since that functionality is never coming back (just like synch between phone and iPad is never coming) I’m done. Saved off whatever I needed and deleted everything.
Frustrating beyond belief as this was, at one time, a very useful app.
Love Paper53 5/5
By God’s Grace
I use Paper to draw out ideas and designs. I love this simple interface and ease of use of the different tools. Highly recommended for all ages.
Sometime the Apple Pencil lag. 4/5
I like the design but I do think it need improvement like the sensitivity when I lay my hand on at the same time I’m drawing or writing. And the ruler pen should have the square shape available or maybe try to have it recognize a lot more basic shape, I don’t like to make straight lines and eyeball it to make a perfect square. Is annoying.
Can’t log-on to Facebook 4/5
I reinstalled this app multiple times and I cannot log-in to my Facebook account. It states something went wrong all the time when it looks like its working.
Delivery leaves much (much) to be desired. 2/5
Paper app is aesthetically pleasing and good for quick sketches and notes. Seems to be it though. I don’t mind paying reasonable prices for good features but FiftyThree wants a subscription to a moderate quality app, a bad move for business in my opinion. It will only push consumers to other apps with one time fees. Especially when Paper has noticeable bugs. The Pencil is a decent stylus when tandem with Paper but once again FiftyThree would make more money by putting an effort into making it compatible with the Procreate app. Makes for a decent passive stylus anyway.
Paper app has its merits but I would never dream of spending a dime on a subscription to a drawing/note taking app. It’s almost laughable. This day and age there are just too many subscription based products to warrant another. Don’t knock their stylus, use Paper for free, purchase another app for art.
**Take note FiftyThree**
Does not work. Save your money 1/5
A subscription to change brush sizes is absurdly greedy. No pre-built shapes either. Fortunately there are other apps with more features for a fixed price.
New update 2/5
I just redownloded this app and was unhappy that I would have to pay to insert pictures - I had previously paid to use the app and it’s features - it seems that it is free now but you can pay to upgrade. Is there a way to let people who paid have those features?
I love sketching using Paper and my new iPad Pro makes it even better. Great colors, brush sizes, ease.
Bug report version 4.1.2 3/5
- Two finger tap undo wont apply on the first try but indicator appears on screen, only on second try undo works and indicator takes really too long (at least 3 seconds) to disapear.
Tested on ios 11.3.1, iPhone 6s plus
Paper is very modern and intuitive app. Thanks for this beautiful and ingeniously designed app.
Best Game Ever!!! 5/5
I used to have this game and I loved it! I accidentally deleted it and then I forgot about it. I got it recently and was dismayed that you couldn’t get scissors without paying. I kept the game, but I didn’t use it that much. One day, I decided to try it and I had pro! I don’t know why it happened but with or without pro, this is the only art game I’ve played for years without getting bored! Definitely 5 stars!
GREAT PRODUCT - TERRIBLE MONEY GRAB 2/5
By This end up
Anything functional is hidden behind a paywall. This would be fine and dandy...accept these folks think the answer is subscription based.
Want fun covers?
5.99 every 6 months
Want custom canvas?
5.99 every 6 months
Want all brush functionality?
5.99 every 6 months
Make it paid, or make it free...subscribing feature is disgusting in my opinion...and I will BE5 MONEY they scrap subscription model within 48 months.
So much fun 5/5
I wish I could draw. This is a fun app to play with
Just with we had layers.
My love 5/5
Good and sassy craft!
Identity crisis 4/5
One of the cool things about Paper was how intuitive it was to use. They seem to have dialed back the functionality in order to appeal to presenters. It has always been a kind of sad thing that this great little app has never really found its niche. I hope they are on the right track this time.
Easy Drawing and Studying 5/5
I really like the new Pro feature that lets me erase with my finger so that I can quickly get back to drawing. Smooth animations when opening/closing notebooks, but I wish that they bring back the old notes where I could enter tasks and even create pages of text.
The new year is a great idea 5/5
By azooz and yara
The new year is a great idea
Nice Application Overall 4/5
Paper is a nice application overall. I don’t use it enough that the price for the add-ins would be worth it - I wish they had a price to just buy, not an ongoing subscription.
I like this app
Drawing App for Normal People 5/5
The new stroke sizes is ingenious; it gives us more freedom while maintaining the simplicity if the app. Continuously impressed with one of the best apps for the iPad.
I’m so grateful that so much effort and care is still being put into this app. It really is one of the best apps ever made for the iPad. This isn’t a professional’s drawing app. This is an app for normal people. Using it is delightful, it has the best inking engine I’ve ever used, it has the best shape detection I’ve ever used. 4.0 is a massive improvement. I love being able to bundle notes with a canvas. So many small, annoying details from 3.0 are gone. Thank you!
Great app and nice to be back! 5/5
Just got a new iPad with the Apple Pencil and it’s wonderful to use this app again. Bought this when it first came out years ago and it’s great to be back.
Paper 53 is one of the best note apps 5/5
I like the clean interface and ease of both note taking and drawing
