App of the Day: Paper by FiftyThree

Truly, this is one of the most elegant notebook apps we've ever seen. Period.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

At some point, you may have found yourself wishing that your iPad was a Moleskine notebook. Well, I haven't, personally, but that doesn't mean that I'm not delighted by Paper by FiftyThree. It's, well, like a Moleskine ... for your iPad. Paper is one elegant notebook. The app itself is free to download, and includes the pen tool and an array of colours to get you started — we love how smooth it is to draw, and the touch controls are genuinely clever. Additional tools are purchasable for AU$1.99 each, and you can get pencil, pen, texta and watercolour tools. They all look gorgeous. One minor niggle is that the colour palette is quite small — we're hoping to see an expansion in the future, but, in the meantime, it's still one of the most stylish notebook apps we've seen.
