You know those great ideas that come all of a sudden and that you can never remember when you need to? You know that you've hit the right key but because you didn't write it down, it will probably be forgotten forever. That's why you should always carry around pen and paper to be able to write down thoughts, reflections, things to do, and even the shopping list. It's much more useful than what you may think. Nevertheless, with the development of mobile phones and other portable devices, we no longer need to carry around anything else to write.
One of the most used applications on our phones is probably one that we can write down stupid things, things we need to look into, outstanding tasks, and whatever springs to mind. There are loads of apps of this kind but some of them are rather rudimentary. What if there were an app that apart from allowing us to write also let us draw with great simplicity? Well, it has already been created by Wacom (the same guys behind the drawing tablets) and it's called Bamboo Paper. You can download and install its APK file totally free of charge on your Android device.
Turn your Android into a notepad and capture your ideas at any time and in any place.
Draw and write
This application works just like any traditional notepad. You can change its covers, the design of its pages, and add sheets as you fill up the previous ones. It comes along with quite a few structural tools that you'll have to pay for except for the first two ones:
- Watercolor brush.
Choose the thickness and color of the stroke amongst the default options and start creating. It also comes along with a useful function to undo and redo just in case you make a mistake. If you've got a Wacom ID, you'll be able to associate your Wacom Cloud account and the contents of Bamboo Paper to quickly access all your works and notes from wherever you are.
Use a selection of six pencials and brushes to write, draw, color in, and mark.
Basic version vs complete version
Although the basic version already includes a wide range of tools that you'll find very handy when you carry them around with you, there are also quite a few options that are only available via in-app purchase. Thus, you'll be able to buy different elements in batches or packs:
- Packs (the pro pack includes absolutely everything).
- Styles (touchscreen pencils).
