When you launch Paper, you're greeted with a series of beautifully designed notebooks. You can customize each one with different images, and change the names - we have one just for ideas and another for sketches. Then, just tap or pinch open a book and it unfolds in front of you, displaying a blank piece of paper just waiting for your next creation.
Once you open your notebook, you are given one free tool - the drawing ink pen. Which is actually extremely useful and very expressive - depending on how fast you draw determines how thick or thin the lines are. It's like being able to write out calligraphy without the years of practice to perfect the skill.
Although the app itself is free, the additional tools are at an additional cost. But trust me, if this is something that you're interested in - it's worth it. Adding these tools is actually what makes this app so incredible. You have a sketching pencil, a thick outliner, a writing pen and a watercolour brush. You can buy each separately, or the whole lot at a reduced price.
And while this may not compare to real paper, where you can see the textures and smell the paint, it's as close as it's gonna get for something electronic. And this way - you can carry it with you where you go! Paper by 53 allows us to capture everyday on the fly - whenever you get an idea, you can easily open this app and write it down or do up a quick sketch.

And best of all? You can link your drawings to your facebook, twitter, and e-mail and share with your family and friends.
You may not be an artist, but this app will make you believe you are. So get in touch with your creative side, and start creating your own works of art.
