Papyrus - Natural Note Taking

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.

Great note taking app I use this app every day to take class notes. It's everything i could ask for. The online forums are a good tool to provide feedback and it's nice to see where the developers plan on taking things. I'd love to see the ability to reorder pages in the future, but from what i can gather that is already in the works. Would also love the ability to backup to Google Drive instead of dropbox, and select tools straight from the ribbon instead of having to go into a dropdown list. Great job, love this app!

Scribble Like a Baller Definitely worth the unlock. I use this daily for work, home and fun. Tic Tac Toe? Hangman? Funny Portraits of People on Public Trans? Yes please, and endlessly! Love the select, copy, scale, move features that allow you to organize and reorganize your notes any way you like. I even use it for live markups during presentations. Bonus points: the highlighter is really realistic! I am pretty much in love. Update: been using this to execute digital contracts as well, just open the PDF, sign, save and send.

Can't export documents? The pdf markup feature is great and wanted to use this to fill out forms then send them as attachments. Oh wait, there's a catch. There is no way to do this. It's locked inside their proprietary database. SMH, smh.....
