Paper App. Report

At first glance, it seems that they have added more features to this application long time ago. I checked it, and did not see all these options. In my opinion, the drawing part was not easy to find, and it was not clear if it was there or not.

Some functions that can be found in Paper App are:

This is the main function of this application. The Paper provided is easy to handle in regards to drawing; moreover; you have access right away to the tools which also are very recognizable . The user can connect a virtual pencil to this application using Bluetooth so people make a more precise drawing. There are a total of nine tools and a palette to choose colors from. In this function you can write and take photos and then include them in your drawings as background or spotlight. Finally, you have the option to save it on your phone, share them through social networks and send it to different design programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator.

Spotlight details:


It helps the user to highlight a part of any photo that he/she wants. How does it work? You must first take or import a photo from your cellphone to the app., then it gives you the option to adjust the size of the photo and the spotlight option. When you  click  the latter, automatically the photo turns gray and now the user can use his/her your fingers to  point out the parts he or she wants to highlight. As soon as that is done, a circle appears with the original colors of the photography.

Make a list:


Users can type  a list of anything. Additionally, on the top of the list you can insert a drawing or a photo.



A fun experience happened to me in Samsung 837. I discovered new technology and design. Located in the heart of Meatpacking district Samsung 837 is a place in which you can have a virtual reality (VR) experience . I mean, here you can find the latest products and the latest Samsung technology that has in the market. This place is not like the others where you go and buy a phone. What they do is give you the opportunity to experience VR. For example: upon arriving at the place, one of the first experiences I had was the VR of a roller coaster in California. I was sitting on a chair which was moving according to the curves of the roller coaster. I had glasses on, and together with the movements of the chair was the perfect formula for  adrenaline rush.


They also have a virtual reality tunnel where you sit down and see a short video of different shots made in the world and outside in the space. In this mini room there was not movement so in my opinion  the roller coaster one was better.

Samsung 837 has a mix of classic and modern design, as they have a glass room on the first floor near the entrance where DJs play their music and give that chic atmosphere to the whole place. On the first floor, singers make their performances for free.

Passing by the DJs glass room there is a giant screen which is connected to a cell phone that is on the first floor, which takes selfies that later on were shown on the big screen. The interesting thing is that thousands of photos on Instagram formed the selfie that was taken with the cell phone.


There is also a gallery in which through many mobile, tablets and TV screens, project all the photos you have on Instagram And a female futuristic type of voice repeats the hash tags of several accounts in intagram at the same time. It was impressive and overwhelming but not doubt unique.

In general the whole experience was interesting, I notice that many branches of design were combined in this place, from architecture through interior, graphic and industrial design.
