After Microsoft famously scrapped its Courier tablet project, the engineers behind it decided to compile their talents and go for self. The result was FiftyThree, Inc., the development company behind the incredible and elegant Paper app. Paper app aims to make analogue activities like drawing, painting and scribbling notes feel both natural and enhanced using the iPad's technology. It has five modes: Draw, Sketch, Outline, Write and Color. The Draw feature is free, while the other modes can be unlocked in an in-app store for $1.99 each (full set = $7.99). Anything made in Paper can be easily exported or shared to your social networks and Tumblr. Download it and let your inner artist out.
