Description
Turn your iPad into a paper notebook and capture your ideas everywhere, anytime. Taking notes, sketching, and drawing is as straightforward and simple as using real pen and paper.  CREATE YOUR OWN COLORS  Set any color and create a custom color palette with 36 color swatches. Express your creativity with all possible colors.  ANNOTATE WITH PHOTOS Enrich your notes or journal with photos. Add images or photos to your page and sketch or write on top.  ADD TINIEST DETAILS   With our unique zoom function, you can draw or write fine lines and fit more notes onto the page.  GET YOUR IDEAS FURTHER   Activate the free Inkspace Plus features in your bamboo paper app (wacom ID required) to automatically sync and access your sketches and notes from anywhere, at any time, across all your devices. Easily export and share your ideas in different file formats, such as .psd, .svg, and rich text. And collaborate on a real-time canvas with others – no matter where you are.  CAPTURE YOUR IDEAS WITH A bamboo STYLUS  For the best result and experience, use bamboo paper together with a bamboo Stylus. For advanced note-taking or sketching, try the thin-tip pressure sensitive stylus products from wacom: bamboo Stylus fineline and sketch.  START ON paper WITH A bamboo SMARTPAD Prefer to start on real paper? Capture your ideas with pen on paper on the new bamboo Folio or Slate by wacom and digitally shape and refine them later in bamboo paper. EXPRESS YOURSELF NATURALLY bamboo paper now supports tilt*, so every stroke looks authentic. It detects the angle of the pen so you can express yourself in the most realistic way. *Depends on pen and device capability.
Good software but hope to fix the compatible problem for iPad Pro 11
by MapHarvest on 2020/05/26 20:50
It works so well for me when I am using my iPad Pro 10.5. It is so simple and clear. But after I changed my iPad to iPad pro11. I found a huge ugly black marine space on both the right and left side. Hope the problem can be solved.
书写很流畅,但是容易误触

Severely Needs UI Update
by Clombings on 2020/05/15 04:18
THe whole app feels old and in need of balancing, fine-tuning and a user-options menu that would allow us to set preferences. For one: if you’re drawing too slow, the color picker will appear where you are drawing. I cannot express how many times this is fumbled up my drawing experience.. please take this out or let me turn it off. Two: zooming on the page is the least responsive zoom experience of any drawing app I’ve used. Half the time it doesn’t work and ends up putting a line of ink through my work where I was using my fingers to zoom. Three: please give the eraser fixed size options, the way it changes size based on scrub speed leaves almost no consistency if someone is trying to articulately mask or clean a sketch. Four: please let me change the paper type of each individual page. I have paid for all of the tools and I use them. I like to have journals for different focuses, and sometimes my different focuses would benefit from different paper types. I would like to keep all of my focus in one place without having to start a second journal on the same topic just to have a different paper type. Five: Black and dark paper types need to trigger the UI to switch to light toggles. When using black paper, I have to go searching for UI toggles and it’s deeply frustrating. Six: please get rid of the Wacom Pen Sync button that exists on every page. I have an Apple Pencil and will never use anything else. I get that you make this hardware, but I don’t need it visible all the time. Put it on a different options page. Seven: Allow cellular data sync. Eight: The color palette system is limited, I wish it felt more like procreate. Nine: placing and adjusting an image is incredibly frustrating and I hate this app to its core when I’m trying to get something done and the palm of my hand triggers the image adjust dialog. Ten: Please let me doodle on the covers of the journals and overall create a more personalized user experience. Eleven: Please let me stack journals, archive journals that I no longer wish to have out. This would be amazing for me as I generate a lot of content and would like to put old projects away. Twelve: I would like higher resolution pages, at least to have the option of them. Exported images are very low resolution. It would be nice if I could at least print these sketches on PAPER and have them hold a 1:1 quality with the size of my screen.. Maybe just give me the freedom to set the dimensions of a notebook? Or have it be infinitely flexible like Moleskine Flow? Thirteen: searchable handwriting. I would pay for this tool. If you had this in your app, it would be a college student’s dream.
Nice app
by orthodoxchristian on 2020/05/08 15:39
I’m giving this app 4 stars bc I’ve been looking for a note taking app and this has worked best. A couple things to improve on, but overall it is great.
The worst app in the world
by kt_thetruth on 2020/05/07 15:38
Where do i even begin... takes a long time to load pages, skip pages randomly, sometimes it takes me out of the app and just being the whole notebook from the beginning of the pages so now i have to flip all the pages manually from page 1 to 40 in the time that takes a snail to go across the entire continent of America. Please make this app better, after all you’re not charging cheap prices for your styluses. As for now i wish App Store has a rating of 0 stars
Good but improvement needed
by esbee@9 on 2020/05/01 19:10
I liked this app a great deal with the variety of colors and rule style. However the most annoying feature was the inability to name my notebooks so I have to remember which color is for what subject.
Bamboo paper
by sarah roseabell lola on 2020/04/25 17:42
It’s great and really fun too!
Love this app!!!
by Ranter13 on 2020/04/22 18:45
Want the stylus but unavailable. Works great with apple pen. Love the features but would like more! Keep up the great work!
Digital journal
by Coach McKoy on 2020/04/19 16:49
I love this app so much that I use it as my full time journal now. I’m able to add photos to my written memories. You can even share a page with someone else. I highly recommend using with an Apple Pencil or stylus.
barebones.
by bubble gum 37 on 2020/04/16 00:44
not many tools, can’t change the eraser size making it almost impossible to draw.
Best ever electronic notebook
by Tigr28Rt on 2020/04/15 02:29
I love the intuitive and simple way Bamboo Paper works to allow sketching, importing photos, and generally anything you’d want from an electronic notebook.
Amazing
by GrankTheDank on 2020/04/13 20:34
Amazing notes app. I’ve had no problem with Inkspace cloud, or exporting files .will or pdf to my google drive.
Nice and easy
by zsecdrvdtbuijnm on 2020/04/05 17:01
Very simple to use. Very straight forward
Great app! Love it! Thank you so much!!

Great app! Love it! Thank you so much!!
Good For Digital Homework
by Isujejdnsnmdd on 2020/03/20 12:40
This App is a good App if you don’t need a lot of storage. The only annoying part is touching the ink and it doesn’t switch back so you hace to go to the wheel and touch your color as close as possible. Please tell me if their is a different way.
CANNOT DOWNLOAD UPDATE

Great App for teaching
by LariosOnBass on 2020/02/09 03:51
I’ve been using Bamboo Paper App since 2014 and over the years I’ve been wanting several features add it to make the work flow better and more productive. Bamboo Paper is a great because it integrates with your work flow and provides you with the capabilities of sharing your work with others. The ability to be able to share your work across other platforms and syncing your work makes it possible to work from almost anywhere. I gave it five stars but because of the following I will rate it 4.9 stars. This leaves room for the following: I wish that there were other choices in the type and color of lines to format the pages, that there was the ability to type on each page and that there was a better way to control files, and manage your notebooks. More pens and productivity tools. This app has been around for a long time and from the beginning it has been a tool to go to when I’m teaching. I strongly recommend this App if you are a presenter, teach take notes or just like to doodle. Start using it today! I will be looking forward more tools integrated into the page and better file managements.
Great program
by Gman2020!! on 2020/02/05 05:16
It’s very good
Wonderful tool
by Poidawgie on 2020/01/29 17:00
I love this app, I can use any pencil and it works! I use this to write my meeting notes and the fact that you can’t add pages so easily is wonderful. Plus I can draw diagrams as I write my notes so that I don’t have to keep two notebooks. Great job you guys I love it!
So Handy!
by ORFlowerGirl1 on 2020/01/29 05:16
Bamboo is so handy to doodle and take notes. Easy to use & fun!
LOVE!
by MaddieRocks on 2020/01/28 23:51
I just wish the notebooks could also sync to the iCloud too.
Need Split Screen Support ASAP
by anthonyrios048 on 2020/01/24 03:55
I love this app so much But I wanna be able to read things on my iPad mini 5 while taking some notes
Great!
by Jkdwckhrekjvfelperknbwkebjond on 2020/01/23 12:16
Great sketching app! Easy and intuitive UI.
Great app
by Illnana824 on 2020/01/14 17:06
Love the notebook feature. I use this for all my to do lists and open items lists at work!
Wonderful but would love if it can add more
by Arin' on 2020/01/07 23:01
I really like this but also wish I can copy paste a text. Or I can do it if I’m on a pro? I am using free version at the moment. Please let me know if it’s possible on pro version.
Almost perfect
by jswirly on 2019/12/25 12:48
LOVE how natural the writing is. It is still the closest thing to real paper I have found. I use it regularly for journaling. Wish it had better palm rejection and could rotate horizontally. Then I would give it 10 stars!
Nice one
by Avagana Kakar on 2019/11/27 18:55
Need more brushes
Great app.
by Marwa.A on 2019/11/08 05:09
I’ve been using Bamboo app to take handwritten notes for a few months now and i really love it.
Split screen
by Abi Kitty on 2019/11/05 01:20
Please allow this to use split screen on the iPad Pro. It doesn’t work properly.
Awesome!
by matthewwangreviewer on 2019/11/04 06:16
I have a Bamboo Fineline 3 that works on iPad 5. The hand rejection works really well. I would like it if they put in change drawing to vector and color fill.
Integrates the Best with Wacom Bamboo Pens
by BÜRDŠ on 2019/10/26 22:25
So, I mainly take my notes in Microsoft OneNote rather than Bamboo Paper, but there are still things I prefer about this app over other note taking apps. It actually pairs with your pen over Bluetooth compared to competitors who just register the Bamboo Fineline 3 as a “touch stylus” or equivalent to using your finger.
No palm rejection
by H4m3 on 2019/10/09 17:28
I disabled gestures like the app said but my palm keeps making dots everywhere. Also how is there no selection tool? Brush sizes are small medium and large? I even bought the full package and hardly an improvement. This is good for doodling at best but no pro work is being done here despite the multiple notebook.
Finally!
by THE REAL LION on 2019/09/20 07:28
I couldn’t use this app again since I started using iOS 13 Beta I was scared they might never update this app again (because they barely do). For that, I tried other apps of similar functionality, but none of them satisfied me. I have to say that this is my best app for scribbling things and arranging them for keeps. Thanks, guys, for updating this app and renewing my faith. My gratitude 🙏🏼
Needs more
by ana746875 on 2019/09/08 14:51
I have downloaded a lot of note taking apps and this one is my favorite in terms of functionality and writing flow with an apple pencil. But it is missing the key feature of being able to cut and paste! They could do so much more with the app if they offered these things as upgrades just as they do with the pencils and notebooks. I want to keep using this app but as a student the cut and paste feature is critical. Please add it!!
Excelente aplicación
by Hugol23x on 2019/08/30 23:16
Gran cantidad de funcionalidades, aplicaciones intuitiva de fácil uso
Good but I don’t get the paper orientation
by Hsn5555 on 2019/08/29 14:45
Why do you insist on having one paper orientation? The writing is great and amazing but you need to also consider adding more features. For example, I want to add a keyboard text to my page. I also should be able to do screen capture and record my voice so I can have a complete whiteboard experience.
Doesn’t work well with Bamboo stylus on Air 2
by jrlhamo on 2019/08/26 05:24
Bought the pen and app for my iPad Air 2 for taking notes. The pen doesn’t work well enough on the app to use it for writing. Useless and disappointing.
Love!!!!!! Love anything and everything from Bamboo!
by ecbox on 2019/08/14 15:50
I love this app. I have it on my windows computer as well. It is tricky to try to connect the two devices. I couldn’t restore my previous purchase so I had to purchase for apple. The different types of notebooks and style and pens are so great I love them. I can do just about anything and everything I need.
Love it
by henny in honolulu on 2019/08/13 07:53
My new zero waste minimal journals! I love to write, doodle and gather photos and ideas, and Bamboo Paper with my iPad and Apple Pencil gives me the freedom of paper without the waste or clutter. Plus I can export precious pages to Google drive to back them up, which is nice.
Great for note-taking and to sketch if you had their stylus.
by CJ-4693-6806 on 2019/08/06 07:34
I love this app to draw and take notes with. However, it's compatible with my apple pencil. It's compatible with only wacom stylus. I have a hard time drawing on this app.
Needs more features
by dickard mcgraw on 2019/08/03 22:04
Not enough organization tools in the app to allow folders within certain subject areas. For instance, i would like to have a class folder and within that be allowed to divide sheets into different chapters so i can easily find them. Pen responsiveness is great Wish there were more features similar to the notability app to be honest because i find that app much more comprehensive to use, but the bamboo pens work wonderfully on this app which keeps me hooked
Worst backup
by Ben94116 on 2019/08/03 05:11
After installing the app on new device I could get the featureI bought back
My go-to for quick art and design sketches
by car&shanna on 2019/07/20 14:01
Versatile, easy, nimble, shareable for quick ideas. Complex, layered, beautiful for in depth designs and works of art.
Best stylus app for drawing ever
by franrap on 2019/06/22 14:10
Wow. If you have a bamboo sketch you need this app Amazing
Exactly what I need to plan closet
by Sydnehhhhh on 2019/05/13 13:47
Exactly what I need to plan out the closet organizer I am building for daughter’s walk in closet. Didn’t need anything fancy and this was perfect.
Like the simplicity...
by 44ljb44 on 2019/05/05 05:35
... but I wish the eraser would adjust smaller. I need a fine point eraser to make make exact adjustments to drawings
Apple Pencil not supported
by FrankieT on 2019/04/10 15:58
I like this app. But unfortunately it does not support the Apple Pencil either first or second generations.
Muy bueno
by jimongeCR on 2019/04/01 17:33
He usado BAMBOO desde sus inicios y para mi funcionalidad ha sido excelente. Ha evolucionado adecuadamente conforme han pasado los años. He visto otras herramientas y no he decidido quedarme con esta hasta el momento.
App ok but not great
by Roi Des Rois on 2019/02/22 03:20
This seems to be more for drawing than note taking. It’s not as sensitive to the Apple Pencil 2 as built in notes or Penultimate. Also doesn’t have landscape mode.
Awesome
by gimmeamin on 2019/02/17 23:23
This is easy to use and I love the different books
Not really that great
by Geraldine1508 on 2019/02/17 12:58
I am trying to get it to do something useful for the last 30 minutes. I bought the pen and it just doesn’t do anything.
Way Cool
by kolduny on 2019/02/09 17:12
A very good app for sketching on the go.
BEST APP EVER
by Valerianromero on 2019/01/23 18:41
never had a better app for my notes! Thank you.
Tools, Notebook types not restored, Crashing
by MegGriffin'sTwinSister on 2019/01/19 02:30
Used to be great, but now along with the issues below, the app randomly crashes after being opened for several minutes. This erases any progress I’ve made on an open page and restarts with an empty sheet. — I’ve used this app for nearly 2 years now with my Bamboo Intuos stylus. I had to uninstall the app yesterday for storage purposes not related to the app. I reinstall it today, sign in to Inkspace, connect my stylus, but the complimentary full tool set is greyed out and will not restore. There is a button that says “restore” but when I press it, nothing happens. It doesn’t try to load or anything. It’s extremely frustrating to suddenly not have access to these tools for free when I have had them for this long with the stylus.
Amazing!
by humiî on 2018/12/27 01:52
This app is very nice!
Needs more writing tools
by CraigC24 on 2018/12/26 21:38
The ability to “lasso” and move writing, a ruler/straightedge, and ink to shape would make this app 5 stars
Desperate need of an update
by izgirty on 2018/12/24 04:36
App is good in basic form... but requires more set of tools to compete with others... • why not add more pen types such as fountain pens and calligraphy pens... • Also need ability to circle text and cut them to move them around. • Why not add ability to convert written text to typed text... • Please include ability to insert text boxes and type with keyboard (with the ability to change the size of text box)... • Add ability to change paper type at any time... • Annotation of PDF files should be standard... • Need to add option to ignore palm when using pen... • Need to use Apple pencil's full features of pressure and double tap... • Need to have option to add comment boxes that hide and pop up when needed.
Lacking a function to export original images
by 康村德华刘 on 2018/12/11 19:07
I am a graduate student enjoy using this app to take lab notes. Also I like to combine experiment results with notes. I can import figures. But after that, it will be great if there is a way to export this original figure in the future without losing the resolution of this figure.
Simple & Clean
by Omgrobwhy on 2018/12/06 18:50
This app is perfect for me and my needs. Separate notebooks with free cloud storage accessible from iOS & Android, 4 stars cause my purchases aren’t transferred on the same Wacom account across platforms. Stylus Tip seems to work better within this app that other notes apps.
Pretty good.
by Dabdoug on 2018/12/04 01:40
Nice to have something to draw with that you can’t get started right away
The Best Writing App
by Gf John on 2018/11/28 14:26
Hands down, no challenger for this app. I tried all of them. I keep coming back. Only 4 stars as with the latest update palm adds dots on the writing area. Please fix.
Great
by Cheryl K on 2018/11/27 21:10
I have used it for years, which they had for the iPhone! I would really love it for the iPhone, hint hint
Good one
by hfcffgghbj on 2018/11/25 22:40
Very good one, used a lot
Okay
by ughgodno on 2018/11/24 17:07
Handwriting feels great but there is no palm rejection. Turning off gestures as they suggest does not work. There are dots everywhere. I’ve seen reviews with this problem from months ago - any plans to fix this issue?
Not working
by B-Choomps on 2018/11/13 01:17
Doesn’t upload my notebooks to the cloud. Doesn’t upgrade to most recent software.
Improve the pencil support
by Aman Dembla on 2018/10/05 19:19
Whenever I write with pencil, my palm leaves spots/dots on the whole screen and it’s so frustrating to keep erasing and undoing.
Great App
by I Am Clear As Crystal LLC on 2018/09/28 12:07
Wished I would have purchased a fine tip bamboo pen but other than that, this app is wonderful. Being able to change pen angles allowed me to hold my hand on my iPad. I was trying to purchase an iPencil but own a 5th gen iPad and purchased a Wacom product instead and so far no complaints. I’ve only had the product and pen for a week. We shall see
Perfect for school
by 1TyJ on 2018/09/01 04:20
Although I do not have the bamboo pencil, the Apple Pencil work perfectly!
Almost perfect....
by IAMEGI on 2018/08/01 18:46
Bamboo Paper in my honest opinion has probably the best and smoothest interface. I’ve used multiple apps for note taking, even ones that charge an arm and a leg just to be presented with some laggy or glitchy technology. But Bamboo has taken note of what true to life note taking should be like and reinvented it for a tablet. Whenever I’m taking notes with my Apple Pencil it doesn’t feel like I’m writing on a tablet, that’s how smooth it is! But although I have a list of great things to say about it, I still have some wants from it to. This app would be my to go to app for all note taking if... A few updates came around. My main pet peeve is the fact that notes can’t be taken on landscape. Whenever I start my notes on portrait I’m forced to keep taking them on portrait. It’d be awesome if you would incorporate the ability for the paper to rotate with the orientation desired. Along with this, the app still glitches when zooming in and out during note taking or designing. I always get the pop up that if I turn off multitasking it’ll make it better but it actually makes it worse. So as a result, this causes unintentional writing or marks on paper. Not as major, but recording during note taking process or recording option when a note taking notebook is chosen would add a lot of value to the app. Lastly, there should be more personalization options for the notebooks. I understand there are a variety of notebooks we can choose from that come with their own paper layout and cover but having the ability to interchange the covers would move this app to my #1 note taking app, actually my sole note taking app. I hope that some of these thoughts are already being worked on because I honestly can’t find a better app that makes note taking fun and stress free.
The app is great but
by Hasib67 on 2018/07/30 04:12
It needs the ability to add text and other note taking tools will be great for example categories.
Love the responsiveness
by The Ryan. on 2018/06/25 12:31
This app was rise really well with my Wacom, which on an older iPad is not as easy to accomplish as one might think. The only thing in my opinion which would improve this product is ease of accessibility across iOS/OSX devices. I know the company has a cloud sort of option but I did not find it effective or user friendly. Please improve this aspect of the app for a 5/5!
Homework Helper
by Mormont65 on 2018/06/24 15:01
This app has been a huge help, perfect for homework.
Need more functionality mobile compatibility
by Powercenter09 on 2018/06/22 03:01
Page preview, search and index is least expected. Categories and subcategories will help... Mobile compatibility will help view the contents. Individual page styles.. like lines in one page and dots in other page for the same notepad.
Finally!!
by Octet to cat on 2018/06/19 11:22
After hunting around the App Store for THE APP to replace paper, It has made itself found. Fluid Ink, Natural feel and free to use for general note taking ( there are a few add ons such as crayons and a water colour brush you must buy to use) make this app my definite favorite!
Can’t get support
by MtHaleyGirl on 2018/06/16 21:46
A simple “search” box would do wonders for the FAQ but I cannot easily find ANY way to contact this group. I purchased the whole package and bought a new iPad and none of it is showing up. I’m afraid I tried to sign in with the wrong account and now I cannot use the email address I THINK the purchases are linked to. NO HELP AT ALL CAN BE FOUND. I have this small expectation that when I make a PURCHASE no matter how small, that I am able to get help when the PRODUCT I PURCHASED IS NOT WORKING. I’m sick of being treated like this as a consumer.
Love the app
by Agry76 on 2018/05/23 01:00
I love this app for my mediocre drawings. But it could use more colors, and maybe an auto-fill. I have to color everything in. Otherwise it’s awesome
So easy to use! So versatile!
by BNat666 on 2018/05/21 16:21
This is a magnificent app for me as a casual user, because of all of its options and versatility in notebook types and writing options. I DO wish there were a much bigger palette of colors to choose from, but I still wouldn’t demean this great app by saying thee aren’t enough! I also have this app on my Android phone and it’s just as much fun and useful there as it is on my iPad! If you need an app that will let you write in your own cursive style, design sets for high school theatre productions, or just explore your inner digital artist (and almost literally anything in-between,) then I would tell you to look no further; THIS IS THE APP YOU'RE LOOKING FOR!!!
Absolutely a great app
by Thad G. on 2018/05/08 17:31
I couldn’t find what I needed in most apps where I could utilize my pencil, but Bamboo Paper is by far the best.
writing and sketching
by Cody1kenobi on 2018/05/07 03:49
One of the best apps I’ve found for writing and sketching. The zoom in feature is an easy way to get detailed in your notes or drawings. This app has responded well to a number of budget styli that I have tried. Works great with my Apple Pencil!
Very disappointed
by katkingly on 2018/05/04 14:48
I logged into my paper account so that my 5 notebooks would not be lost. Well, the app crashed and reinstalled itself. It did not help to have backed everything up because all of my notebooks were gone. I only use this app for throw away ideas now. I bought the bamboo pen and everything. Oh well. Buyer beware.
So close
by Flufferson on 2018/04/29 00:45
Tried with the Apple Pencil, worked fine but the Palm rejection fails and leaves dots everywhere. Would be my daily notes app if this was fixed. The lack of screen rotation also bothers me. I get that you can just use a notebook with vertical lines but it seems like an odd restriction in 2018.
Good but could be great
by J_Lynch on 2018/04/28 22:24
This app is good in that there are multiple options for page types, color options for notebook covers, and works well with the Apple Pencil. However, it could be great with options like the ability to design your own notebook covers and the option for multiple page styles within a single notebook.
No PDF import
by unhandyandy on 2018/04/28 18:48
That’s a deal-breaker.
Inkspace cloud storage does not work
by britt.s2 on 2018/04/24 22:30
I have several hundred pages of important notes and sketches on this app. I need to have them backed up and unharmed so I can reload them onto a new iPad. In the top right corner the app offers storage through Inkspace if you sign in. I sign in, it says I can return to the app, so I do and it appears to be backing up. Within 5 seconds it stops randomly and still shows a red “x” on the cloud icon. When I press the icon to redo it I’m completely signed out as if I never tried in the first place. I’ve tried over and over at least a dozen times and it’s the same thing. If I absolutely have to I’ll go through each notebook and download each of the ~700 pages individually to my photo gallery. It is frustrating to not have a functioning cloud service from a brand that has such a large presence in digital art and communication.
Poor screen reactivity.

I’m in a notes heavy anatomy class and after filling an entire notebook in two months I decided to start taking notes on my iPad. I use this with a Wacom stylus. Specifically the bamboo sketch which I love drawing. Using this app however is frustrating and time consuming. The middle inch of my iPad breaks up whatever I’m writing and turns it into these fragments of letters. At first I thought it was an issue with my screen and had done a bunch of testing but it’s on this app that causes the malfunction.
Pretty decent, but glaring problems
by MisanthroFun on 2018/04/12 08:17
This app is pretty good, but it is missing a lot. Wrist recognition would be life-changing because I cannot rest my hand, swiping down for notifications breaks functionality until next app restart, is not full screen which means drawing near the bottom risks pulling up the dock and/or overview and drawing near the top risks pulling down the notification screen (see previous), the automatic “correction” of my movements ruins any kind of speed (should be scalable by user), and I do not appreciate parts of the app being paywalled when I paid money for one of your styluses in the first place.
Amazing and free
by CutieUni21 on 2018/04/07 00:35
Finally a free note taking app that functions well and offers different ways to take notes!
Crashing

Used for 4 years no problem. After last OS update it’s crashing. Fix it, please.
Love this app!!
by iBridget on 2018/04/05 23:03
*Developer updated, and I am upping my stars as it is once again working on my ipad Pro and everything is there, all my tools. Thank you dev! This is the only drawing app I really enjoy using.
Nothing but crash
by djoleson on 2018/04/05 05:17
Very unstable in iOS 11.3. Say goodbye to your sketches.
Won’t launch
by CecyZu on 2018/04/05 03:08
I’m very excited to try this app but unfortunately every time I try to open the app it won’t launch... I’d love to get help to fix this problem
Loved it but now crashes
by Old Uber Lover on 2018/04/05 02:12
Please fix as it won't open and crashes immediately after trying to opens since installing ios 11.3. I really blame Apple because their ios is garbage but you need to fix the app. I have notebooks of notes I can't access and need badly! 5 stars once it is repaired.
Keep crashing
by nodimesh1 on 2018/04/04 03:31

Will not run on iPad Pro 10.5 inch
by mlt56 on 2018/04/02 22:12
App opens and then closes immediately on iPad Pro 10.5 inch. This app and Bamboo Fineline that worked fine on previous iPad Air are not a good option on the newest 10.5 inch ipad
11.3 broke it !
by The slugggg on 2018/04/02 21:36
Nice program. Have used for years. After updating to iOS 11.3 Bamboo no longer boots, just opening screen then crashes.

Inkspace cloud storage does not work
by britt.s2 on 2018/04/24 22:30
I have several hundred pages of important notes and sketches on this app. I need to have them backed up and unharmed so I can reload them onto a new iPad. In the top right corner the app offers storage through Inkspace if you sign in. I sign in, it says I can return to the app, so I do and it appears to be backing up. Within 5 seconds it stops randomly and still shows a red “x” on the cloud icon. When I press the icon to redo it I’m completely signed out as if I never tried in the first place. I’ve tried over and over at least a dozen times and it’s the same thing. If I absolutely have to I’ll go through each notebook and download each of the ~700 pages individually to my photo gallery. It is frustrating to not have a functioning cloud service from a brand that has such a large presence in digital art and communication.
Great App for teaching
by LariosOnBass on 2020/02/09 03:51
I’ve been using Bamboo Paper App since 2014 and over the years I’ve been wanting several features add it to make the work flow better and more productive. Bamboo Paper is a great because it integrates with your work flow and provides you with the capabilities of sharing your work with others. The ability to be able to share your work across other platforms and syncing your work makes it possible to work from almost anywhere. I gave it five stars but because of the following I will rate it 4.9 stars. This leaves room for the following: I wish that there were other choices in the type and color of lines to format the pages, that there was the ability to type on each page and that there was a better way to control files, and manage your notebooks. More pens and productivity tools. This app has been around for a long time and from the beginning it has been a tool to go to when I’m teaching. I strongly recommend this App if you are a presenter, teach take notes or just like to doodle. Start using it today! I will be looking forward more tools integrated into the page and better file managements.
Finally, an easy note taking App
by Roy Rusha 721 on 2017/10/16 23:41
I just found this app at around 3am because I had some epiphanies and wanted to write them down, but not just on paper, I wanted to use my rarely used Apple Pencil. It got it’s work out after all I wrote this morning lol. This App is simple to utilize, make separate notebooks to stay organized, turn them into PDF’s and mail pages etc. Very user friendly compared to likewise Apps that claim they’re easy and make you pay for all the “extra’s,” whereas this one offers a couple of small add ones, they’re worth it just to make the experience of the app preference better...
Great but could use more functionality for serious note-taking
by mslowetoyou on 2018/02/03 14:19
I love this app. The writing is generally responsive and looks natural. I also like the password feature to protect any possibly sensitive information. I take a lot of notes for work, about 7-9 pages per day. It’s a lot and I need to be able to search them relatively quickly. However, you can’t search notes or quickly flip through them. The page turning arrow is annoyingly slow when you have any type of volume. I’d also like to see more subcategories like tabs or groups of books. I have the Bamboo Fineline which is great when paired with the app as well.
Tools, Notebook types not restored, Crashing
by MegGriffin'sTwinSister on 2019/01/19 02:30
Used to be great, but now along with the issues below, the app randomly crashes after being opened for several minutes. This erases any progress I’ve made on an open page and restarts with an empty sheet. — I’ve used this app for nearly 2 years now with my Bamboo Intuos stylus. I had to uninstall the app yesterday for storage purposes not related to the app. I reinstall it today, sign in to Inkspace, connect my stylus, but the complimentary full tool set is greyed out and will not restore. There is a button that says “restore” but when I press it, nothing happens. It doesn’t try to load or anything. It’s extremely frustrating to suddenly not have access to these tools for free when I have had them for this long with the stylus.
Keeps crashing all of a sudden
by RedneckNerd on 2018/02/09 13:21
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app! But lately, and it could be because I’m on the Apple iOS beta program, but today I tried to open it to view my knitting patterns notebook and it keeps crashing. I just used it a few days ago and it was fine and now nothing! I lost a star cuz of it. And stupid me never backed up my notebooks, so I even uninstalled and redownloaded and it’s still doing the sam thing. Is there anything I could do to fix? I don’t wanna have to hunt for a new app all over again! I’ve bought and downloaded so many and this was the winner!

Finally!
by THE REAL LION on 2019/09/20 07:28
I couldn’t use this app again since I started using iOS 13 Beta I was scared they might never update this app again (because they barely do). For that, I tried other apps of similar functionality, but none of them satisfied me. I have to say that this is my best app for scribbling things and arranging them for keeps. Thanks, guys, for updating this app and renewing my faith. My gratitude 🙏🏼
Needs more
by ana746875 on 2019/09/08 14:51
I have downloaded a lot of note taking apps and this one is my favorite in terms of functionality and writing flow with an apple pencil. But it is missing the key feature of being able to cut and paste! They could do so much more with the app if they offered these things as upgrades just as they do with the pencils and notebooks. I want to keep using this app but as a student the cut and paste feature is critical. Please add it!!
Great App
by I Am Clear As Crystal LLC on 2018/09/28 12:07
Wished I would have purchased a fine tip bamboo pen but other than that, this app is wonderful. Being able to change pen angles allowed me to hold my hand on my iPad. I was trying to purchase an iPencil but own a 5th gen iPad and purchased a Wacom product instead and so far no complaints. I’ve only had the product and pen for a week. We shall see
Love!!!!!! Love anything and everything from Bamboo!
by ecbox on 2019/08/14 15:50
I love this app. I have it on my windows computer as well. It is tricky to try to connect the two devices. I couldn’t restore my previous purchase so I had to purchase for apple. The different types of notebooks and style and pens are so great I love them. I can do just about anything and everything I need.
Great for notes for college
by Verenice6 on 2017/08/24 22:10
after getting my Apple Pencil , I was looking for the best app to take notes with in class. I downloaded so many apps and tested them all out. I saw the features each had and how much I liked them. This app was the only one I saw myself going back to. Awesome tools and you can have multiple notebooks ! Love it !!
Love the responsiveness
by The Ryan. on 2018/06/25 12:31
This app was rise really well with my Wacom, which on an older iPad is not as easy to accomplish as one might think. The only thing in my opinion which would improve this product is ease of accessibility across iOS/OSX devices. I know the company has a cloud sort of option but I did not find it effective or user friendly. Please improve this aspect of the app for a 5/5!

Really needs a few features
by Live and Grow on 2018/02/17 08:03
Handwriting experience is very nice, but the app needs, in particular, a lasso tool -- hopefully one that would allow the user to move, copy, cut, paste, change color, and change line style. The user gets the option of purchasing new notebook styles, but there are few differences among the styles. The app has improved over many generations, but the absence of the lasso tool is a deal breaker for me.
Needs more features
by dickard mcgraw on 2019/08/03 22:04
Not enough organization tools in the app to allow folders within certain subject areas. For instance, i would like to have a class folder and within that be allowed to divide sheets into different chapters so i can easily find them. Pen responsiveness is great Wish there were more features similar to the notability app to be honest because i find that app much more comprehensive to use, but the bamboo pens work wonderfully on this app which keeps me hooked
The worst app in the world
by kt_thetruth on 2020/05/07 15:38
Where do i even begin... takes a long time to load pages, skip pages randomly, sometimes it takes me out of the app and just being the whole notebook from the beginning of the pages so now i have to flip all the pages manually from page 1 to 40 in the time that takes a snail to go across the entire continent of America. Please make this app better, after all you’re not charging cheap prices for your styluses. As for now i wish App Store has a rating of 0 stars
Good but I don’t get the paper orientation
by Hsn5555 on 2019/08/29 14:45
Why do you insist on having one paper orientation? The writing is great and amazing but you need to also consider adding more features. For example, I want to add a keyboard text to my page. I also should be able to do screen capture and record my voice so I can have a complete whiteboard experience.
Great app
by victkid_original on 2017/10/19 06:01
I'm using Bamboo paper to take all my notes. I love this app so much. It creates a more intuitive feeling than OneNote. But it still missing some key features to make it as a serious notes taking application. I hope the team can add page insert/delete. Cut/paste, note split/merge and a better page scroll function in their next version.
Can’t get support
by MtHaleyGirl on 2018/06/16 21:46
A simple “search” box would do wonders for the FAQ but I cannot easily find ANY way to contact this group. I purchased the whole package and bought a new iPad and none of it is showing up. I’m afraid I tried to sign in with the wrong account and now I cannot use the email address I THINK the purchases are linked to. NO HELP AT ALL CAN BE FOUND. I have this small expectation that when I make a PURCHASE no matter how small, that I am able to get help when the PRODUCT I PURCHASED IS NOT WORKING. I’m sick of being treated like this as a consumer.
Integrates the Best with Wacom Bamboo Pens
by BÜRDŠ on 2019/10/26 22:25
So, I mainly take my notes in Microsoft OneNote rather than Bamboo Paper, but there are still things I prefer about this app over other note taking apps. It actually pairs with your pen over Bluetooth compared to competitors who just register the Bamboo Fineline 3 as a “touch stylus” or equivalent to using your finger.
Excellent, just need a little more
by Makwa3 on 2018/03/09 16:41
This is the most used app on my iPad besides maybe Safari. It is a great app, but I would like to see more updates more often with more function ability add-ons such as Archived folders, highlighter for note taking, dual notebook view, etc.... But overall I couldn’t say I’ve been more pleased.
Wonderful tool
by Poidawgie on 2020/01/29 17:00
I love this app, I can use any pencil and it works! I use this to write my meeting notes and the fact that you can’t add pages so easily is wonderful. Plus I can draw diagrams as I write my notes so that I don’t have to keep two notebooks. Great job you guys I love it!
Desperate need of an update
by izgirty on 2018/12/24 04:36
App is good in basic form... but requires more set of tools to compete with others... • why not add more pen types such as fountain pens and calligraphy pens... • Also need ability to circle text and cut them to move them around. • Why not add ability to convert written text to typed text... • Please include ability to insert text boxes and type with keyboard (with the ability to change the size of text box)... • Add ability to change paper type at any time... • Annotation of PDF files should be standard... • Need to add option to ignore palm when using pen... • Need to use Apple pencil's full features of pressure and double tap... • Need to have option to add comment boxes that hide and pop up when needed.
writing and sketching
by Cody1kenobi on 2018/05/07 03:49
One of the best apps I’ve found for writing and sketching. The zoom in feature is an easy way to get detailed in your notes or drawings. This app has responded well to a number of budget styli that I have tried. Works great with my Apple Pencil!
Good but could be great
by J_Lynch on 2018/04/28 22:24
This app is good in that there are multiple options for page types, color options for notebook covers, and works well with the Apple Pencil. However, it could be great with options like the ability to design your own notebook covers and the option for multiple page styles within a single notebook.
Can’t upload to Dropbox
by JWS 424 on 2017/11/14 22:05
Up until recently I was very happy with this app. An issue has developed where I am unable to upload a workbook to Dropbox. I also cannot email it to myself as the app does not recognize Microsoft Outlook as a viable email app installed on my iPad. Otherwise I enjoy the app and use it often for documenting notes and photographs.
So far the best I've found. But not perfect
by Nolan Sager on 2017/09/10 08:37
Palm rejection when using the Apple Pencil is poor and there doesn't seem to be a way to turn on a "stylus only" mode. I feel that would be a great addition to this app and would truly make it the perfect note taking app! Other than that, it's great!
Crashes on launch with 11.3 update
by Lesliesj on 2018/03/29 16:03
I have used Bamboo paper on all of my devices for years. I have found it easy and convenient to use especially for jotting quick notes, brainstorming ideas etc...Unfortunately since upgrading to 11.3, the app crashes every time attempt to launch it
Digital journal
by Coach McKoy on 2020/04/19 16:49
I love this app so much that I use it as my full time journal now. I’m able to add photos to my written memories. You can even share a page with someone else. I highly recommend using with an Apple Pencil or stylus.
Need more functionality mobile compatibility
by Powercenter09 on 2018/06/22 03:01
Page preview, search and index is least expected. Categories and subcategories will help... Mobile compatibility will help view the contents. Individual page styles.. like lines in one page and dots in other page for the same notepad.
Finally!!
by Octet to cat on 2018/06/19 11:22
After hunting around the App Store for THE APP to replace paper, It has made itself found. Fluid Ink, Natural feel and free to use for general note taking ( there are a few add ons such as crayons and a water colour brush you must buy to use) make this app my definite favorite!
Almost perfect
by jswirly on 2019/12/25 12:48
LOVE how natural the writing is. It is still the closest thing to real paper I have found. I use it regularly for journaling. Wish it had better palm rejection and could rotate horizontally. Then I would give it 10 stars!
Love it
by henny in honolulu on 2019/08/13 07:53
My new zero waste minimal journals! I love to write, doodle and gather photos and ideas, and Bamboo Paper with my iPad and Apple Pencil gives me the freedom of paper without the waste or clutter. Plus I can export precious pages to Google drive to back them up, which is nice.
Sooooo good
by aabhinayy on 2018/02/02 01:03
There are so many drawing apps and this one has everything that is good about all the other apps combined. The only problem is the in app purchases. It’s a little bit of a pain buying extra tools for drawing but other than that, it’s great
Cool
by d3atiq on 2017/10/14 10:01
Very handy app for taking notes. I like the customization options (cover color, paper types, lines, etc.) Suggestion for improvement: support right-to-left languages. Both by right-justifying the title and by providing a reversed notebook page option.
Lacking a function to export original images
by 康村德华刘 on 2018/12/11 19:07
I am a graduate student enjoy using this app to take lab notes. Also I like to combine experiment results with notes. I can import figures. But after that, it will be great if there is a way to export this original figure in the future without losing the resolution of this figure.
Good For Digital Homework
by Isujejdnsnmdd on 2020/03/20 12:40
This App is a good App if you don’t need a lot of storage. The only annoying part is touching the ink and it doesn’t switch back so you hace to go to the wheel and touch your color as close as possible. Please tell me if their is a different way.
Loved it but now crashes
by Old Uber Lover on 2018/04/05 02:12
Please fix as it won't open and crashes immediately after trying to opens since installing ios 11.3. I really blame Apple because their ios is garbage but you need to fix the app. I have notebooks of notes I can't access and need badly! 5 stars once it is repaired.
Great idea poor execution
by Madhattersam on 2017/12/04 19:13
The palm rejection of this app has always been and sadly still is, utter crap. You’ll work very hard on something only to find it covered in dot marks. Considering this is wacom, I set a higher standard for them and this is one of the few apps in the store that still has this issue. This app would be amazing if this issue was resolved.
It’s getting better
by Shanetrain on 2017/12/05 18:05
I used this with my iPad Air 2 and it was or is the best for that. Now I bought the Pro and this app doesn't do a good job at all with Apple Pencil. I've moved on to notability but really wish bamboo would fix their app. I like the format better on bamboo
Love this app!!
by iBridget on 2018/04/05 23:03
*Developer updated, and I am upping my stars as it is once again working on my ipad Pro and everything is there, all my tools. Thank you dev! This is the only drawing app I really enjoy using.
So close
by Flufferson on 2018/04/29 00:45
Tried with the Apple Pencil, worked fine but the Palm rejection fails and leaves dots everywhere. Would be my daily notes app if this was fixed. The lack of screen rotation also bothers me. I get that you can just use a notebook with vertical lines but it seems like an odd restriction in 2018.
Wonderful but would love if it can add more
by Arin' on 2020/01/07 23:01
I really like this but also wish I can copy paste a text. Or I can do it if I’m on a pro? I am using free version at the moment. Please let me know if it’s possible on pro version.
The app is great but
by Hasib67 on 2018/07/30 04:12
It needs the ability to add text and other note taking tools will be great for example categories.
App crashes after iOS 11.3
by Karthik_KS on 2018/03/31 03:07
Please update this app. I can’t spend a day without this app. I use it for taking notes and it’s the best app in the App Store for hand writing accuracy, but new iOS update killed it.
Amazing way to take notes.
by Cynhen107 on 2018/02/17 02:14
Amazing way to take notes in several different colors and point tips. Love it
Amazing and free
by CutieUni21 on 2018/04/07 00:35
Finally a free note taking app that functions well and offers different ways to take notes!
Bamboo is perfect for journals
by Leesi B. on 2018/03/21 20:31
I love using it to jot down my thoughts. Add pictures. I use it with my Apple pen and it’s cool and private. I can’t wait to see how it progresses over time.
