The iPad is largely considered a consumption device for gaming and general entertainment, but is gradually gaining credibility as a viable supplement to learning, education and productivity. As time goes on, more businesses, schools, and similar organizations are turning to the Apple tablet for their everyday needs, and one key area which developers seemed to have concentrated on is that of note-taking. The iPad has many great offerings in this particular category, and PaperDesk by WebSpinner certainly belongs on that growing list, offering a plethora of useful tools.
The thing that immediately strikes you about PaperDesk, is its versatility. It’s designed to enable drawing of sketches, implementation of images, as well as the writing / typing of text, so covers most bases irrespective of what kind of task you’re undertaking. This ability to readily mix different types of content with ease makes it an ideal piece of software for young children in school, yet it’s also ideal for professionals, or older students in college or university.
It boasts the kind of power and features you seldom see in a free-to-use app, and not only is it very easy to use in a productivity sense, but organizing different notes and notepads into folders is also as easy as pie. One of the common gripes with such apps is that, while the actual note-taking experience has usually been finely polished, the sorting thereafter tends to be basic, but PaperDesk, with its in-built organization facility, makes light work of helping you keep track of everything you’ve done.
As mentioned earlier, PaperDesk for iPad is free of charge, and although free apps are often loaded with ads or promises of better functionality after an in-app purchase, PaperDesk plays nice, and you’ll be surprised at just how seamless in operation it is.
Please note, this app is for iPad only, so please don’t download unless you’re in ownership of one. In addition, PaperDesk requires iOS 5.0 or higher in order to install, so if you’re still on older firmware, you will need to perform an upgrade.
