That doesn’t mean that a stylus is completely forbidden when using the iPad. It just means that a stylus shouldn’t be required because humans already have a perfectly good, durable, sensitive stylus. The finger.
No app on the iPad exemplifies the drawing pad of paper and pencils than PaperDesk.
This clever iPad app works like a sheet of drawing paper, a pad, a notebook. Create notebooks of drawings, writing, notes, and save them and sync backups to Dropbox.
Only iPad storage limits the number of notebooks you can create and use in PaperDesk. Think of it as a notebook or drawing pad with unlimited paper.
In this case, though, PaperDesk has tools for drawing, multiple new fonts, custom characters, color picker, ink, undo levels, and a clever way to rest your wrist while drawing on the screen.
PaperDesk doubles well as a note taking app, either using the built-in keyboard or by handwritten notes.
And, of course, like most well developed iPad apps, PaperDesk also shares– Dropbox, GoogleDocs, Mail, Twitter, and AirPrint.
PaperDesk can also import PDF files from other apps, or from Dropbox or iTunes, and you can drop in images from the iPad’s camera, or Photo library.
Both drawing and taking notes are intuitive once you figure out where all the appropriate tools are located. Some vector graphic tools would be a nice addition, but considering the $4.99 price tag, I’m not complaining. There’s even a PaperDesk Lite version so you can try before you buy.
