App gains edge-to-edge drawing, new gestures

FiftyThree has released a major update of Paper, the company's iPad sketchbook app. Version 1.1 supports edge-to-edge drawing, making full use of an iPad's screen space. Each tool should now operate up to three times faster, and the Rewind function is said to have been made more intuitive, for instance rewinding further back the faster a person circles. Sharing settings can be customized by tapping service icons, one example being the ability to set default Tumblr tags and captions.

Also new are several improvements to the way journals are handled. Pages and journals can be grabbed through press-and-hold commands, and several multi-touch navigation gestures have been added. To create duplicates of items, users can press and hold the "+" button; this allows a single sketch to serve as a template. Finally, new pages can be added to a journal by swiping from the edge.

Paper runs on any iPad equipped with iOS 5.0 or later.
