Images and photographs can now be added to make handwritten notes and doodles come alive

The success of Wacom’s highly popular Bamboo Paper app continues with 2.5 million downloads to date. Through listening to customer feedback, Wacom continues to improve the app, making it more user-friendly. In combination with the recently launched Bamboo Stylus duo, Bamboo Paper is the perfect companion for an iPad. As well as enabling users to create and share ideas visually with handwritten notes, sketches and doodles, the latest version now offers exciting new features such as the facility to incorporate images and photographs.

Bamboo Paper is the ideal tool for personal expression, whether for business, school or home use. The latest upgrade takes this one step further. Perfect for illustrating a presentation, displaying favourite family photographs or livening up a recipe, users can now add images and photographs to their notes. Those images can be annotated or moved around the screen to help illustrate any notes or doodles already on the page. Photographs can even be taken on the iPad and incorporated directly into the app, ensuring that pages really come alive.

On the occasions where users prefer their work to be kept private – for example, if the information is of a sensitive nature – Bamboo Paper now provides a robust security feature. Notebooks on the app can be locked with a passcode in order to control who views them. In addition, there is a read only mode to prevent notes being edited by others.

Additional new features include the expanded library view, which is a new way of browsing, duplicating or deleting a Bamboo Paper notebook without leaving the library. Also, the improved interface for note taking in landscape mode is ideal for left-handed use. Bamboo Paper notebooks are valuable to users, which is why it can now be archived in the cloud using Dropbox or Evernote.

Bamboo Stylus family

Delivering a complete solution for end-users, Wacom’s flexible Bamboo Stylus duo and the colourful Bamboo Stylus solo range (offering a rubber nib only) form the growing family of touch screen Styluses that perfectly complement Bamboo Paper.

Present ideas with Bamboo Paper

Ideal for teaching environments and work presentations, the iPad can be connected to a projector. Bamboo Paper will automatically fire up in presentation mode, enabling users to show artwork, drawings, notes and ideas to an audience, which can all be annotated during the presentation itself. This helps to provide a more lively and interactive environment.

Bamboo Paper for Mac and PC

Although there are millions of people around the globe using Bamboo Paper on an iPad, the app can now also be used on a desktop computer. Notes and pages can be viewed or added if required while working on a laptop or PC.
