According to the professionals who already spent some time with the upgraded PaperLike, the installation process is unfortunately still the most disappointing part of dealing with the screen protector. On the other hand, the surface roughness was found distinctively more prominent by early adopters as reads in their promotion: “The sensation of writing and drawing feels very much like paper, with increased resistance compared to the version one – and almost no display noise. This is as close to a perfect screen protector for my treasured iPad as I can imagine.” PaperLike 2 has just started its month-long Kickstarter campaign and it is already fully funded with 22 days to go. You can still reserve yours for €29, a 5 Euros discount from its intended retail price. Naturally, digitalEPIGRAPHY is eagerly awaiting to test out the new PaperLike and we will share our hands-on experience as soon as possible.  For the last 2 years, Jan Sapper, PaperLike’s creator has been working on an...

For the last 2 years, Jan Sapper, PaperLike’s creator has been working on an updated version, trying to improve a few areas of his original design. 

An accessory that should be considered for anybody using Wacom’s solutions, whether in the field or in the studio. This little wireless device provides a set of seventeen customizable buttons and a touch ring to allow the artist achieving instant one-touch access to timesaving shortcuts. The Express Key can be placed anywhere while drawing, either on screen or in one’s hand, wherever is most convenient. It connects with a factory pre-paired RF receiver that slides into the computer’s USB slot, therefore its preset shortcuts can be used even without a connected Wacom screen assuming the Wacom driver installed on your machine.

For the last 2 years, Jan Sapper, PaperLike’s creator has been working on an updated version, trying to improve a few areas of his original design. He says that he has so far sold over 10000 iPad screen protectors and his customers are happy with it for the most part, with two exceptions: the surface could be a bit rougher and the display noise it generates should be toned back. We would add one more complaint to the pile, namely the ease of application. As we pointed out in our installation guide, applying the screen protector over such a large screen surface as the one on the iPad Pro 12.9 Inch can be very challenging. On the other hand, once installed, we never really had any complaints about the roughness of PaperLike. Thanks to the extra layer, penciling at the temple has become a lot more natural adding more bite to the Pencil while significantly improving on precision. Nonetheless, Jan and his team went back to the drawing board and tinkered and experimented with the material. As a result, they just launched a new Kickstarter campaign for their new and improved PaperLike version 2.
