App Review: Paper

Looking for an easy to use, beautiful app to record notes in a journal? Look no further than Paper, a free app by I was told about this app by a junior high reading specialist who also works with English Language Learners. After looking at it, I can tell how right she was!

You can create journals for different students, subjects, or ideas. For example, the ELL teacher I work with had each of her students create a journal to record the vocabulary they are working on each day. Students can date each entry and record their learning. The pen strokes are beautiful! It has a calligraphy feel to it. It makes my sloppy handwriting look somewhat artistic! 

The free app comes with a single pen with a variety of colors to choose from. There are in-app purchases available for other writing tools. Several exporting options are available. You can go with the popular iPad options: Twitter, Facebook, or Tumbler. Or you can export one page at a time to the Camera Roll. 

So give Paper a try! There aren't too many apps that give you functionality that is paired with aesthetics. But I don't think you'll be disappointed when you see what Paper has to offer.
