Paper app, by the developer FiftyThree, has so far been promoted as a creative drawing app, but now the company thinks that the app might have appeal for business presentations as well. Paper has been updated with a new set of drawing tools collectively called Think Kit giving application a more business-like touch.
The Think Kit comes with Diagram tools allowing users to create objects like shapes, lines, and arrows. Using these new tools, you can quickly create diagrams, charts and wire-frames. While keeping the hand-drawn look, the app also keeps the Diagram neat and tidy. When the Diagram tool is selected, your roughly drawn shapes get turned into a neat versions automatically. The Smart Fill option allows you to apply different colors within shape’s boundary.
You can easily create pattern, rearrange and move shapes using the Cut tool. Once you’ve created your desired drawing, you can easily export your whole book or a single slide to either PowerPoint or Keynote.
Think Kit feature in the latest version of Paper comes as a free and automatic update for existing users. The app itself is also available for free, it used to offer in-app purchases but company made all its feature free back in February. It seems like the company is viewing Paper app as a hook to sell its stylus.
