Paper by FiftyThree is a free app that recently became available in the App Store. Created by ex-Microsoft employees, Paper allows users to draw sketches, diagrams, illustrations, or simple drawings. Paper features a minimalist and beautiful interface and has built in sharing options that allow users to share their creations on the web. Paper features all the essential tools (you have to buy most of them through in-app purchases, though). There are no settings to configure, which is always good.
The only downside of this app is that you have to buy tools including additional stencils in order to take full advantage of the app. It would have been better if the app was priced around $5 or less and featured essential tools instead of selling for free. One way of seeing this is you get to try the app before buying and i think not many users would mind that.
