    Another note taking app, this one distinguishes itself by a boat load of features, using your own handwriting.

    Another note taking app. This one is completely holo based and will look good when you're on a vanilla custom ROM or using a launcher with a holo feel. Worth checking out!

Take handwritten notes naturally on your Android device! With Papyrus you can write just like you would on paper using an active pen, passive stylus, or your finger. Easily markup PDFs to fill out forms, edit/grade papers, or sign documents. Import images, draw shapes, and add typed text to your notes. Quickly select, copy/paste, and move content between pages and notes. Turn your device into a virtual whiteboard or give presentations in a class, meeting, or conference by wirelessly casting to a TV/projector (e.g. using Miracast, Chromecast). Even export notes as PDFs or images to share with others or store online! Papyrus is vector based - keeping your notes beautiful at any zoom level and on any device. You can erase entire letters and words quickly with the stroke eraser tool, or just parts of words with the true eraser tool. The selection tool allows you to change the color and thickness of your handwriting and even resize a drawing whenever you want without any loss in quality.

Papyrus takes special advantage of active pens on capable devices to provide natural, pressure sensitive handwriting. Just write with the pen and erase with your finger!

Papyrus is designed to be both powerful and simple to use, allowing you to take notes quickly and efficiently.
