Most popular feedback for Endless Paper

Groundbreaking, but desperately needs a few features This app is one of a kind with it’s infinite zoom. It enables a never before possible way of advanced thought mapping. It needs these few features to become a recommendable at it’s price point. I think it with these it will become extremely popular. - iCloud file saving and syncing across multiple devices - Multiple file / canvass management - Path selection tool to move, cut, copy, paste drag, and resize paths. Other would-be-nice features - Cleaner line rendering ( no need for fancy brushes ) - Selection of path and turning i into links that jump to other places (bookmarks) on the canvass by tapping on the path. and link click history. To developer, this app should be 100x more popular than it is. I hope you can implement these features soon, so i can feel this app is totally worth the price and recommend it to others. Best wishes!

About Endless Paper

Let me introduce you to Endless Paper, a brand-new sort of app with an unlimited canvas that enables you to write handwritten notes, draw diagrams, develop ideas graphically, brainstorm with your team, arrange your thoughts spatially, and much more. Endless Paper is as easy to use as pen and paper, but without the restrictions of a physical medium. It is deliberately simple but immensely strong and quick. Endless Paper is the best tool to support visual thinking and communication, whether you're a scientist working on complex formulas, a manager brainstorming with your team, an engineer needing to visualize a problem, a designer wireframing your next UI, a student taking notes, or a teacher delivering captivating lectures. Ideally, Whiteboard Have you ever begun a paper sketch only to realize you wouldn't have enough room to finish it? With Endless Paper, you won't ever need to start over on a fresh paper, clear the space off your whiteboard, or—more importantly—limit yourself due to a shortage of space. Every large concept begins small, and because we are aware of how easily fragile new ideas can be, we purposefully created a flexible tool that encourages discovery when it is most necessary and when ideas are most at risk. Notes written by hand Write now, and we'll handle the rest. Your progress is automatically saved by Endless Paper in the background. You'll never need to manage documents or files. When you are, Endless Paper is prepared. It's not necessary to start from scratch, select a document size, or plan out where to keep it. Endless Paper has a lot more flexibility. The software takes advantage of the iPad's strengths as a device for 2D space navigation. Simply pinch to zoom and pan to move quickly through the interface and begin writing. You spatially organize your material rather than depending on documents and files. This not only offers excellent consistency throughout the experience, but it also replicates how your brain functions. Consider this. Most of the things in your environment, from your kitchen to your office, are arranged spatially. Editing and document management are not artificially divided in Endless Paper. At every scale and level, everything merely functions in the same manner. Replay Valued at 2,000 words Directly import photos onto your canvas. Bring your notes to life. Illustrate. Create mood boards to collect ideas. Take photos, then pin them. Import your go-to paper template, sticky notes, or study materials. Drag and drop from Photos, Files, Safari, and pretty much any other program is supported by Endless Paper. And to make it even more practical for those looking for ideas, we included tailored support for drag & drop directly from the Google Images search result page. Replay Simple on the surface, incredibly effective The use of Endless Paper is intended to be intuitive. The minimalism practiced here is not aimless. Simple interactions are used whenever possible to reduce cognitive burden and mistake rates. This enables you to give the task at hand your whole attention. Interactions come naturally, which is crucial in tense situations or when you give someone else your iPad who has never used the app before. Additionally, everything saves instantly, and you have infinite undo and redo. built for the iPad and the Apple Pencil Unparalleled performance is delivered by the specially designed Fractile vector rendering engine: Even when millions of strokes are being drawn on the screen at once while panning, zooming, or writing, you always get ultra-crisp, retina-quality vector rendering at a silky smooth 120 frames per second.

Even a technophile can miss the tactile feeling of writingon occasion — or maybe you’re still one of those people who writes faster than he types. In either case, Penultimate is a good solution for users who miss taking notes, doodling in the margins or drawing the occasional diagram for guidance. You can organize your thoughts into several notebooks with an infinite amount of pages. You can share notes via e-mail or send them to your Kindle, Dropbox or Evernote account. Your notes will be better looking if you use an optional stylus. 99 cents, for the iPad.

Endless Paper reviews

This intriguing app does an amazing thing, but it has some real limitations which prevent me from relying on it. On the plus side, it really is infinite, infinitely wide and also infinite zoom in both directions. And it seems stable. It has not crashed on me or lost my information yet. The new color selection, added recently, is a welcome addition! But what limitations! There is only the one file, which is the infinite canvas. You can’t close the file and start a new one. I understand that in theory you don’t need multiple files if you have infinite space inside your one file. But I’d like to be able to back up my work. For that reason, I’ve only played with this app, never used it for anything long term because I don’t feel secure against catastrophic data loss.

Cool concept and has some utility but in the end you can’t trust this app to retain important info (like your notes for work or school), and customer support is completely non-existent. To that end, this app is ultimately just a scribble toy and not worth paying any fee for it. I’d been using the app for a few months as a portable white board for work and had tons of notes in it. Then about a week ago the app froze while I was trying to take a screen shot. No big deal, it happens, but what was hugely disappointing was when I closed and relaunched the app for some unknown reason the entire thing jumped back in time by at least a couple weeks. It was like someone hit the undo button 10,000 times and redo was not an option. At least a week of notes and work gone in a snap. Again, if I ‘lost’ the last few minutes before a crash I could understand that, but a week plus?!?! Unacceptable. I’ve reached out to the customer support email address provided within the app but that was a waste of time, still no response over a week later. Would love to get my $10 back but probably not happening. Recommend avoiding this one until Epiphanie matures into a real developer / vendor.

I just bought this app and as it seems you are using the native tool set that apple has for pencil, but 2 very important thing are missing the first one, please can you add the selection tool? It is very important as you can save a lot of time selecting and duplicating an item, and 2, not as important as the first one, please allow to snip the tool menu to other side of the screen, for example I’m left handed and it is more comfortable to me to have the tools on the right side of the screen, thanks, hope to hear soon from you This is a little frustrating and disappointing. This app is not the cheapest one by far and yet aside from those comments I also discover when you export a file is a jpg with very bad resolution, I can,t share my sketching with my work colleagues with this image quality...

Penultimate reviews

Penultimate, used in conjunction with Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro 9.7, is hard to beat. It literally looks like i am using a sheet of paper and a pen to take notes in a notebook. I wish that it had sub folders for the notebooks as this would greatly help organize my thoughts when writing novels. Right now, I am using penultimate to create a children's book for my son. Using Procreate, Pencil, and the Smart Keyboard, it is the most seamless creating tool i have ever used. Granted, I haven't used this app with any other stylus. I have used other note taking apps with other styli and I have to say that Apple Pencil is the best ever. So maybe it is the pencil that makes this app so great. I have not yet felt the need to try any other note taking app because Penultimate satisfies most of my needs. Four stars because it meets those needs. I'm not feeling pressed to buy anything. Highly recommend in conjunction with pencil.

I use this app every morning for journaling and note taking for 4 months now. As a whole The app works pretty well, especially with the Apple Pen. There are a couple very annoying features though that brought me to write this review. 1. When I pop between apps by swiping up in the iPad (like readings I am going through), when I come back to this app it will sometimes put me back 2-3 pages in my notes from where I left off. This happens about 60% of the time and really gets annoying when you have to keep popping back and forth. 2. You can’t rearrange anything for better organization. Or at least I haven’t found a way and have looked for a long while. What I mean is, you can create folders to house similar documents but you can’t rearrange the order of the folders so that the most commonly used or similar topics would be grouped by each other. They just become scattered without any rhyme or reason. Also heaven forbid you spend an hour taking notes on something in the wrong folder/location, which I have done a couple times now. And that is unfortunately now where those documents live. There is no way of moving it to the correct folder, which in my opinion is almost a deal breaker for a note taking app. If this is possible it is not easily found in the app.

It's good but I keep finding things I wish it did I use penultimate to take notes for my classes on my iPad Pro. It's nice to just be able to write, not type notes. But it's not perfect. The two major things I wish it did was zoom in on pictures. I often times insert screen shots from PowerPoint or online and when I go back to review my notes I am always trying to use two fingers to zoom in on the picture which is just a feature the app does not do. I also wish it allowed me to arrange my notes in whatever order I want. I have my app organized so that each class gets its own 'noteboook' but when I open the notebook I don't get organize the 'sub notebooks' in my own order, the app automatically organizes them in order of most recently opened. My other big compliment and this one is really annoying! When I double tap my home button to switch between apps to say take a screen shot and then go back to penultimate the app opens at a page 2-3 pages above where I left it. This is probably the most disruptive feature the app is lacking to note taking in class. Maybe Evernote can make this happen in the next update. I really hope so! This app has so much potential and with a little more care it could be perfect
