Taposé: iPad App Written Review
When it comes to drawing applications or note-taking utilities for the iPad, we’re somewhat prickly. Maybe this is because we’re quite serious about our art, or moonlight as graphic designers. Either way, we expect a whole lot of quality from these productions, which is why we’re unbelievably proud to introduce to you here Taposé by developer Zanther. The app is just about the best note-taking and pen drawing title we’ve seen in a very long time. It arrives with a wealth of features, incredible graphics, and enough suave charm to be the only notation machine you’ll need. For our full review of this killer app, check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, Taposé is a note app and drawing utility for the iPad. It’s most similar to the sort of apps we used back in college to take notes about the lectures, and then upload them to popular services like DropBox or Evernote—all of which you are free to do here with Taposé! However, we have a feeling that very few serious artists will be using the app to draw incredible masterpieces. Still, it’s got to be one of the best note machines we’ve seen in a while. Firstly, the app allows users to freely swap between an highlighter, a pen, a text tool, and even a copier. Each of these elements allows the user to create on the page a digital representation of a traditional analog note or message. These notes are saved in special notebooks, which can be customized in name, look, and paper. All in all, combining these features with cloud-support, we can’t think of a better way to quickly crank out half a dozen pages of notes on a lecture, or during a board meeting.
Design and Graphics
However, one of the absolute coolest things about the app is its gorgeous appeal. It’s obvious the developers spent a lot of time ensuring the app looks good, and the end result completely shines. We loved the notebook customization, as well as the smooth page flips. The physics engine behind the pen drawing is ace, as well. With our stylus in hand, it felt natural and smooth, just as we like. Aside from this, we had no trouble navigating around the app to find the notebooks and features we needed. We were especially fond of the sliding toolbar at the side that grants us access to the various pens and such.
Clocking in at three bucks, which is a fair bit cheaper than most better-known apps, Taposé is an incredible bargain. It’s fluid, organic, and looks fantastic on the iPad. What more can we say, other than go download it now and enjoy the splendors? Stop taking paper notes, and treat yourself to the absolute joy that is Taposé
Taposé requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
