Papyrus - Natural Note Taking


Take handwritten notes naturally on your Android tablet or phone! With Papyrus 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!

Papyrus 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.

Papyrus 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!

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

Good app on NotePro This is a good note taking app on the Note Pro tablet. It would be 5 stars if you could resize text boxes. There are times when I'm taking notes and need to copy text into the note. The only way to get that text to fit a normal page is to make it so small its difficult to read.

Needs updates I love this app and have bought everything but honestly it needs to update way faster. In terms of features and functionality and ease of use itcan't compete with lecture notes. There isn't even a search for note title feature. I would switch at this stage to lecture notes but I've invested way too muchto change.

Buggy as heck The ONLY reason I still use this app is because there are times when I am studying where I need LectureNotes open but still need to write in a different notebook. So far, this is the only handwriting app that has multi window support (which is buggy as ****) and allows writing with the SPen and erase with a finger. SNote doesn't even support the second feature. If this app didn't crash every time I opened another app in multi window view, it would be a good app. If it saved my work before crashing, it would be at least a 3 star app. Emailed support months ago as requested. Never heard back from them.

The cloud feature could have been better. Should be able to save all the notes from different devices into one place (like Dropbox), instead of just creating backups.

Best writing app I've tried This is absolutely the best note taking app I have ever used. Worth every penny I paid for the pdf import pack, in fact I would have happily paid more. I use it almost every day at uni, and it has been a real game changer. I feel that this a brilliant app, and would whole heartedly recommend it to eveyone!
