Paper by FiftyThree iPad app redesigned for iOS 7, improved tools
Illustration creation app, Paper by FiftyThree, has introduced its latest version update. The iPad app allows users to create sketches, diagrams, illustrations, note or drawings, and share them easily. Featuring a redesign for iOS 7, Paper v1.6 offers improved performance, simplified icons, lighter colors, customizable typefaces, and overall improved readability. A new zoom tool has been added that allows tools such as Draw, Color, Erase and Blend to adjust their size when zoomed in, providing finer control over small areas without requiring manual adjustments. Additionally, the Dot size in the Draw and Erase tools is now linked to how long one presses--a quick tap makes small dots, whereas holding down longer creates larger ones. Paper by FiftyThree is free to download through iTunes.
