Used this app before on tablets and it's a great app, but on mobile it looks like there is a bug. Every time I save my work and come back, everything on the page shifts up permanently and theres no way to move it back down. Slowly everything on the page gets erased, and each time I resume writing, my words are no longer aligned with the page lines/grid/dots.

Destroyed the user experience with auto color wheel. This was a great app that you could use for almost anything - scribbles, quick thoughts, sketches, block diagrams etc. Then some smart developer decided to add the feature where a tiny bit of pressure or quick movement of the stylus automatically displays the color wheel. Now you need to constantly tap that away. Also, there is no concept of margin - if you add too much to page length then the top section starts to disappear - no way to reset.

I've had a Bamboo folio for a couple of years now, and I remember early on, it worked really well syncing to this app via Wacom Inkspace. I found the Folio again recently, and the tablet and Inkspace work fine, but attempting to sync to Bamboo Paper doesn't work anymore. It refuses to import, and crashes the app every time. disappointing, because it reduces the features of the Folio, but it's still fine for basic notetaking.
