Smarter Tools

Andrew S. Allen, the interaction designer behind Paper, in an interview with Joost van der Ree:

We made the tools smarter so you don’t have to have settings. Like our writing tool, you don’t have to adjust it, it makes your handwriting look good. It’s funny how many responses we’ve got from people who haven’t sketched in 15 years and it makes them feel like they can draw. To me that’s the promise of technology used right, when you enable people to really do things that they’re proud of.
