When we started the process of bringing Paper to the iPhone, we went back to the original concept behind Paper - capturing ideas. Sketches are obviously a great way to do that, but when we really spent time with the phone form factor and spent time talking to customers, it was obvious that pure sketching isn't going to be the primary case. The vast majority of people capture their ideas on the go with quick notes (e.g. emails to self) and photos. With that in mind, we built this new version of Paper and included text (including swipe to style), photos (including our spotlight feature), and sketching (including Think Kit).

We tried to bring something special to each aspect of the product, but we are particularly proud of the way that these pieces can come together into composite ideas, the way that you can quickly see all of the ideas in a particular space, and in just how fast it is to capture any concept you have.

We are eager to hear what people think and happy to answer any question about the app or how we built it.

The app looks great. I love the style of the drawings. Any plan to bring this to Android?

@wmorein what's your take Apple's announcement yesterday, specifically the Pencil? Will you continue investing in the FiftyThree Pencil (yes, same name) you launched months ago?

A desktop app (with flawless syncing) would be huge for me. Until then I may be stuck with default Notes
