It’s been a while since Papyrus was updated. Actually, it’s been a long while like more than three years ago since we last featured this note-taking app from Steadfast Innovation. There may have been minor updates in between but the most recent one is the biggest so far because Material Design elements are now included. The Papyrus 2.0 now features what Material Design is all about and this is something users of the app will love.
The new look and feel of the app are very noticeable but what’s more impressive is the enhanced note-taking process that lets you “handwrite” text on a digital form. The app includes an interactive tutorial that will teach you to find and use the new features. With this update, you can also now import images and PDFs from an SD card directly. You can also export notes to the devices and move notes between notebooks. When it comes to navigation, you’ll see in the navigation drawer the “new notebook” and the notebook list actions. Backups can be created or restored on an SD card or straight to the device.
When it comes to PDF viewing, you can set privacy so only the thumbnail will show. You can also set password for security. The app won’t show the PDF unless intended or unlocked by the owner. Note thumbnails can show one’s previous position and page. You can now scrolling through them now boasts of an improved responsiveness. Or if you want to use a pen, you can go to the Active pen setting to choose ‘Input methods’.
The app has been downloaded almost 2.5 million times from different mobile app sources like the Amazon Appstore, Samsung GALAXY Apps, and Google Play. App is free to download but you can expect in-app items to be offered like Cloud Backup , Tool Pack, and PDF Import.
