  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. 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.

    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.

  5. Quick draw for LINES, circles and other shapes

    Auto shape detection. This is especially very important for lines. Notability in iOS has this. If you draw a line and hold it for a second it will become a straight line that you can adjust. Simple convert to shapes will do for rest of the shapes. Best note taking app on the market, my GPA (civil engineer) went up 0.5 just thanks to you guys. Well done !

  6. Favorite Pens

    Please add the option to customize a pen menu with multiple styles, that way one would not have to keep going back and forth through the "menu" when switching between colors, stroke size, etc.

  8. Make a paid "Pro" version of the app instead of using multiple in-app purchase for 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…

  11. 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.

  14. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. Windows App

    I would like to vote for resuming support for Windows devices. Squid is a great app for recording tutorial videos with a pen (just enough features, responsive, and easy to use). I realize that you have limited resources, but I wanted to put the vote out there.

    We don’t disagree that there is a market for a cross-platform handwritten note taking app! We would love for Squid to be available on all platforms. We’re a small team and we don’t currently have the resources to expand to Windows (or iOS). We hope this will change someday!

  19. Vertical scrolling of pdf

    is there any plan to support vertical scrolling pdf?
    in case of pdf, vertically scrolling would be better.
    or, at least, i hope there is a gesture control to move next page
