Productivity App Paper Lands on iPhone


The popular iPad productivity app Paper is finally making its way to iPhones.


Developer FiftyThree on Thursday launched Paper version 3.0, deemed the "biggest update in the app's history" with support for Apple smartphones and a slew of new features. The app combines all your text notes, lists, photos, and sketches in the same space, letting you capture your ideas in whichever form you like.

"You can see and make sense of your ideas by having them laid out like a wall of sticky notes," FiftyThree said. "This is the whiteboard in your pocket that can help lay out presentations, or group similar ideas together for a moodboard."

Version 3.0 was "built for speed" and touch, letting you swipe your finger to create a To Do list, or tap and hold items to re-prioritize. "It's never been this easy to create shopping lists or organize talking points," FiftyThree said.

You can also organize your ideas into separate Spaces, which you can name and customize with a cover image. There's no limit to how many Spaces you create. Plus, the app opens to a new note every time, so you can get down your ideas, as soon as they strike.

As for photos, you can now tap to hone in on a specific detail, as well as annotate your images with notes and drawings. When you're ready to share your ideas, you can export them to PowerPoint, PDF, Keynote, Dropbox, or post them on social media.

"Ideas. They strike at any moment and come in many forms," the company said. "Screenshots or photos of things we want to remember, checklists, loose sketches, stream-of-consciousness words, diagrams, emails to ourselves — whatever your idea and whenever it hits, Paper's cutting-edge tools will capture and communicate it with speed and polish."

Paper 3.0 works across iPads and iPhones that run iOS 8 and above. It's available for download in the App Store.
