Creative Bliss: Wacom Bamboo Application

The Ultimate Notebook

With all this technology these days it’s hard not to transition into your basic applications. Before the smartphone was the Palm Pilot, where you were able to quickly take note of your important events, add contacts, and keep things organized. Fast-forward 10 years and the evolution of the smartphone has come a long way. Now you have a variation of mobile devices that can act as your personal assistant or even your very own journal/sketchbook. Who needs real paper and a pen anymore? Well, I know I do! Being an artist I still appreciate the feel of pen to paper, although I must tell you that I do revel in the fact that I can draw on my iPad. For those late night light bulb moments I love just being able to open up the iPad, go to my Wacom Bamboo Paper App, and let the creative flow begin.

First and foremost Wacom Bamboo Paper App is FREE!

Run and get it! It’s available on the Apple iPhone’s, iPads, and select Android Devices.

You can also add more notebooks for $1.99, not bad being that a journal or sketchbook in Barnes and Noble could run you anywhere from $5.99 and up. Really,  a cool two dollars is nothing with endless pages to create. Can you say, deal? Yeah, totally!

The description reads “the ability to create virtual notebooks for your iPad, letting you share your ideas visually with handwritten notes, sketches or doodles. Paired with the Bamboo Stylus, it turns your iPad into the ultimate paperless communications tool.”

It’s amazing. Point blank it’s just great, not complicated, easy interface. The ink flow of the pen feels like a felt tip pen; smooth and when used with a Wacom Bamboo Stylus Pen it feels that much more like you are writing with a pen.

There are 3 different pen and marker sizes and 9 different colors available to you with this app. It’s just enough to doodle or write things down. Remember this is not a full fledge drawing application, it’s just meant to act as your digital journal if you are an avid iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad user. I personally love it because it’s just so easy to write things down, brainstorm an idea, import pictures, send your notebook(s) to your email, upload it to iCloud or print it. So, for this application being FREE I would say it’s one of the better one’s compared to the one’s you actually pay for.

So go, give it a try, extremely easy to use and I am sure you will love it as much as I do. Happy Creating!


For those of you who have been keeping up with my articles you know that I use Wacom Bamboo for my creating and I wanted to report on one of the products I had. I have to say that I did love my Wacom Stylus Pen but now not so much. The tip of it is a small rubber dome that just tore on me. Keep in mine I did not use it any different now than any other time. I just think a pen that’s $24.95 should not rip or tear especially if it’s being used on a flat smooth surface like an iPad. So DON’T waste your money. I am looking into a better stylus and when I get it, I will be sure to inform you.
