Bamboo Paper iPad FAQs
Why is there a charge for additional notebooks?
The basic functionality of Bamboo Paper is free of charge. Users can try out the unique writing experience of the app without having to pay for it. For serious note-takers, we offer the ability to upgrade to the full experience through an in-app purchase. For $1.99 you get the Notebook Pack that enables you to add up to 20 new books to your library. You will also benefit from additional core features in the coming releases, once you’ve updated your app to the full version with the in-app purchase.
How can I add more than 20 books?
As part of a future release, we are working on extending the library so you can add more than 20 books at no additional costs. This will also come with ways to organize books in your library.
Do you plan any additional features for Bamboo Paper?
Yes, we will continue to add new features and provide these through updates of the app. Features that have been requested by users include landscape mode and re-ordering and deleting pages within a notebook. To stay tuned, follow us on Facebook where we will announce new features.
Can I rest with my palm on the surface when writing with a stylus?
Yes, you can. Bamboo Paper includes ways to recognize your palm and reject touches that your palm makes on the screen. It might not work perfectly in all situations, depending on how you hold your pen.
How can I save my notes?
Every stroke is automatically saved. If you close Bamboo Paper app, all your notes will still be there when you open it again. To back-up any notes, export individual pages or the whole note book in PDF or JPG format.

A single page is approx. 300kb, the book with up to 100 pages could go to 3MB maximum.
