My favorite app on my iPad is Paper by FiftyThree [iPad – $6.99]. It’s an artist journal/sketchbook where you create journals and sketch, write, doodle or whatever on the pages. The app itself is free, but only includes the pen tool. Other tools (color, sketch, write, outline) are in-app purchases of $1.99 each or you can get them all for $6.99.
I’m a doodler at heart so this app quickly became a favorite. When I stumbled onto Stuff I Remember, a book two sons put together from their father’s childhood sketchbook, and How to Make a Journal of Your Life, about sketchbook journaling, I found even more inspiration.
It’s also quite easy to save journal pages as graphic images, so I can incorporate my doodles into my Day One [iOS – $4.99, Mac – $9.99] journaling apps. Now I have the best of both worlds – hand-crafted entries in a high-tech journal.
Does tech get any better than this?
