Apple Pencil and Paper

New member | Level 2
If you were to add Apple Pencil support to dropbox paper it would become my only note taking app.

Current Status: Delivered


Hey there @Brent1230 - how are you today?

I am only writing to thank you for this feedback and using Paper!

As I've already mentioned here and here, I have passed this feature request to Paper's dev team for their consideration.

If there's anything else I can help with in the meantime, don't hesitate to let me know. 

Thanks again and have a lovely day!

Here for the same request! I love Paper and use it for almost everything. Please add the ability to sketch using Apple Pencil on an iPad.

I would love this feature as well! I really enjoy a LOT of the features Paper has, and I've begun using it more and more lately, but having that ability would be an AMAZING feature add for my ideal use case!

OMG yes, having the ablity to take hand written notes on the dropbox paper app would be ssssooooo incredibly helpful for so many reasons! Please let me know if this is being worked on or will ever become an ability otherwise I may have to stick with goodle docs...

Same here. I ditched Paper in favor of the Apple Notes app just so I could use the Apple Pencil. iCloud note syncing is unreliable, so I'd love to switch back to Paper, but until they add support for the Apple Pencil, it's a non-starter.

Also the same! I just started using DropBox Paper on my computer and phone and thought I could make the most of it with my iPad and Apple Pencil! Sadly I can't so I will have to continue on my search for the perfect note taking app across all devices. I'd love to be able to use Paper as my main notes app but having the Apple Pencil support for marking things up or quick wireframing in my notes it's going to be a no go! 

Please add this feature!

Yes exactly! I think most people can agree that Dropbox paper has really become quite advanced with a lot of great features but the main thing missing from it is the Apple Pencil integration. Please add soon so I can fully switch over ALL of my note taking to Paper!
