  1. Better note organization: sub-notebooks/folders, labels/tags, etc.

    Provide a way to better organize notes, beyond the current notebook organization. This could be done with nested notebooks or folders, labels for notes, sections, chapters, etc.

  2. Sync between devices

    I would like to have my notes automatically appear on my other note devices with papyrus installed. E.g. Create a note on note 2 and it appears on my note 10 1. If possible allow editing too from that device.

    I know that everyone has been waiting a long time for sync and I want to reassure you that it is high on our list of priorities. As users of Squid ourselves, it’s something we really want as well! We appreciate your patience.

    This is something we’ve been investigating since the app’s inception and we continue to investigate constantly. Syncing is a very difficult problem to solve, especially with regards to handwritten notes which can be combined with images and text and contain backgrounds from multiple PDFs. I don’t have an ETA for when sync will be supported, but rest assured this is a high priority for us. We appreciate everyone’s feedback on this idea.

  3. Add Google Drive as a Cloud Option

    We currently support creating and restoring backups to/from Google Drive via the local backup settings: http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1185616

    I understand that this does not meet everyone’s needs. Adding support for Google Drive to the automatic backup options is something we continue to investigate.

    I recently wrote an open letter to Cloud Storage providers on this subject: https://medium.com/steadfast-innovation/open-letter-to-cloud-storage-apps-on-android-a2d0eb919fc4

    Please encourage your favorite cloud storage provider (i.e. Google Drive) to fully support the Android Storage Access Framework (as stated in the above letter). This will not only help us to better support backup and restore to ANY cloud app, but will help the ecosystem as a whole.

  4. Make a paid "Pro" version of the app instead of using multiple in-app purchase fir premium features.

    I have no problem paying for good applications but dislike the method of using in-app purchases, as they do not stay with the application if you move to a new device, have multiple devices, or even change then ROM. If you want to see money from your development efforts, make a separate paid "Pro" version in the Google Play Market, but don't nickel and dime users with multiple in-app purchases.

    Thank you all for your wonderful feedback! I just wanted to set a few things straight.

    First, in-app purchases are tied to your Google or Samsung account, depending on which store you downloaded Papyrus from. Purchases are automatically restored or enabled by Google Play or Samsung Apps on all devices you are signed into with that account. This means, if you get a new device, have multiple devices, or need to reinstall Papyrus, you only need to purchase the premium features once (as long as you use the same account). This is true for all applications in these stores (not just Papyrus) as it is handled by Google and Samsung. Please note, however, that it can sometimes take a little while for purchases to show up on other devices or after just installing Papyrus (usually it’s instant though).

    Second, we’re always trying to figure out the best business model for…

  5. Fewer clicks to switch tools

    I'd like to have fewer clicks to change tools. Like changing from pencil to eraser or shapes. Maybe there could be a quick change or some defaults.

    To change tools, you have to
    1. click the tools menu
    2. Click the tab of the tool
    3. Choose the specific tool
    4. Click out of the menu

    Then, you can start using it. And that is without changing any tool options.

  6. Enhance text tool with text wrapping, direct input, and resizable text boxes

    Need text input directly on page instead of the pop out input box. Also need text wrapping for smaller sheet formats for those who type as well as write notes. I would gladly pay the fee for that but not the current input

  8. Add the ability to insert shapes

    Some basic shapes such as lines, arrows, curves, rectangles, circles, hexagons, and triangles would be appreciated.

  9. Smooth Writing like in S note

    Add a filter similar to the one used in S Note. This app is almost perfect. When taking notes, a lot of the lines become jagged. S Note has a filter that corrects it as you write. You can see as you write in S Note, it is first jagged like it is on Papyrus then it smooths itself out to look like natural writing.

  10. Smart shape tool (auto shape detection)

    Create a smart drawing tool just like S Note has, with which you can draw approximate circles, rectangles, lines, and other shapes, and the program recognizes them and transforms them into perfect shapes.

  13. Add "wrist check" or palm guard

    I often write with a stylus, but I rest my hand on the screen. Can you add a wrist check/palm guard feature please?

  14. Allow direct export or sync with Evernote

    It seems like Evernote only OCRs handwriting from image files, not PDFs.

  16. Zoom window for writing

    Like in "good notes" for iPad, you could insert a zoom window witch allows you to write easier and faster. The good notes website describes it as followed:
    GoodNotes provides the zoom window to assist you to write in small size with your fingers or with capacitive styluses. Inside the zoom window contains a zoomed view corresponding to a rectangular area on a page.

  17. Swipe between pages in view-only (reading) mode

    I wish I could flip through pages instead of tapping the next page button during reading mode.

    It’s still on our todo list to support this directly, but I wanted to mention that it’s currently possible to password protect a note in a roundabout way: by importing a password protected PDF into the note. This will password protect the note with the password of the PDF. You can even delete the PDF from the note and the password will remain on the note.

  19. Make a battery friendly dark theme/night mode

    Implement a dark theme for papyrus, preferably black using grey text, as this can make a *lot* of difference in the battery life of devices with an OLED screen, because pixels get turned off when displaying black.

  20. Home screen widget for quick view of note

    You can add a shortcut to your Home Screen to open a specific notebook (see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1179331) or to create a new note in a specific notebook (see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1179328).

    It does not appear to be possible to create a widget that allows for taking handwritten notes directly on the Home Screen (due to the fact that you need to be able to swipe left/right to get to different pages on your Home Screen). Please vote here if you’re interested in a widget that shows a particular note on your Home Screen (and allows you to open it quickly to edit it).
