About a week ago I spent $2 on Penultimate, an iPad app that lets you scribble notes on the screen and save them in notebooks. Maybe I didn’t have to though, because tablet-maker Wacom has recently released their own free iPad app, Bamboo Paper, that does basically the same thing. Almost.
The app, named after Wacom’s line of consumer-level tablets — and probably popped out to complement Wacom’s recently released iPad stylus — lets you do many of the same thing Penultimate does: save notes, change pen stroke and color, change background paper (although with limited choices), email notes as PDFs, even change the color of the notebook’s cover. The biggest thing missing though: multiple notebooks.
