Use Paper if you want to turn your device into paper
There are few choices of tools, compared to the similar kind of apps available in market, but most of them beautifully emulate the texture of the material when applied to a real piece of paper. The app has an unique undo feature by drawing a counter-clockwise circle with two fingers, however, it is not very easy to control.
Students could use this app to jot notes and record their ideas at any time. The freshly added Think Kit tool set even allows them to create visual models, chart, frames, etc. and open in common apps like powerpoint which makes it extremely convenient for doing projects with presentations.
The minimalist app is extremely simple to use, users could use it without any tutorial except maybe knowing the basic controls. However, be aware that the controls and drawings motion get mixed up frequently.
Tips for using the product
The developer provides a stylus, pencil, which could enhence user experience with the app, e.g. pressure sensitivity and palm detection. But the app works fine with other stylus.
