Squid (formerly Papyrus)

Squid (formerly Papyrus)


Papyrus is now Squid! More info: http://goo.gl/PM3KA0


Take handwritten notes naturally on your Android tablet or phone! With Squid you can write just like you would on paper using an active pen, passive stylus, or your finger. Easily markup PDFs to fill out forms, edit/grade papers, or sign documents. Import images, draw shapes, and add typed text to your notes. Quickly select, copy/paste, and move content between pages and notes. Organize your notes within notebooks and increase your productivity!

Turn your device into a virtual whiteboard or give presentations in a class, meeting, or conference by wirelessly casting to a TV/projector (e.g. using Miracast, Chromecast). Export notes as PDFs or images, then share them with others or store them in the cloud!

Squid is vector based - keeping your notes beautiful at any zoom level and on any device. You can erase entire letters and words quickly with the stroke eraser tool, or just parts of words with the true eraser tool. The selection tool allows you to change the color and thickness of your handwriting and even resize a drawing whenever you want without any loss in quality.

Squid takes special advantage of active pens on capable devices to provide natural, pressure sensitive handwriting. Just write with the pen and erase with your finger!

Squid is designed to be both powerful and simple to use, allowing you to take notes quickly and efficiently.

New papyrus I bought the premium version for papyrus - why do I need to re-buy features I already had before?

Truly amazing app - a must have for people who want a powerful note-taking app, specially if you have a note device ( I have the Note 12.2) and it is very fluid, i definitely recommend it. Another app i recommend for people who like this app is LectureNotes which is highly customizable. Bamboo is a decent app but lacks the features of Squid/Papyrus or LectureNotes.

Works great, and +1 for privacy, unlike evernote

No shared clipboard The clipboard is not shared, so you cannot paste an image or something else into a note
