The go-anywhere, work-anywhere nature of the iPad opens the door for applications like Bamboo Paper. "The iPad is the ultimate multi-tasking tool for entertainment, business, school and home use. Bamboo Paper adds a whole new dimension to the iPad workflow and gives users new ways to express themselves in a personalized fashion," said Peter Kurstjens, Director of Applications and Platforms for Wacom. "Having a digital notebook such as Bamboo Paper for the iPad delivers a true-to-life pen and paper experience, allowing users to reach heightened levels of creativity and collaboration."
Bamboo Paper Highlights
Bamboo Paper lets users create virtual notebooks for their iPad. The customizable app allows notes and sketches to be shared visually, easily stored and archived for use at a later date. It features different paper types (blank, lined or graph) and several pen thickness selections. Bamboo Paper takes advantage of Wacom's experience and expertise in pen-based input by offering a natural and realistic writing and sketching application tool.
Besides being a digital notebook, Bamboo Paper can also be used in several other use case scenarios. Connected to a projector, it becomes a visual presentation tool in business to share notes or drawings with colleagues.
