| Product News

Fiftythree introduced a new drawing app for the iPad on Thursday called Paper. The app offers a fresh look on drawing and sketching interfaces designed to make users feel more like they’re working with actual paper instead of an iPad display.

Paper includes a pen tool, and color, writing, sketching and outline tools are available as in-app purchases for US$1.99 each. The app was designed to take advantage of the third generation iPad’s Retina Display, includes a customized ink engine for more realistic drawing and painting styles, and offers a Rewind feature that lets you scroll back to earlier points in your drawings.

Drawings can be shared via Tumblr, email, Facebook and Twitter.

Paper is a free download at Apple’s iTunes-based App Store. Extra drawing and painting tools cost $1.99 each, or $7.99 for the full pack of five.

Is paper working on a old iPad and in Canada? I downloaded it and it is working except I cannot get any tools or to the store to buy the essentials.

I checked the specs, and Paper should work on any iPad model running iOS 4.3 or later. Try tapping a tool in-app to bring up the purchase screen. That’s how I bought the Essentials Pack.
