While some applications have added their own in-app settings and options for double-tap Apple Pencil controls, Paper keeps things basic by adhering to the built-in iOS options. This means that double tapping on the Apple Pencil in Paper will perform the action you’ve picked in the Settings app on your iPad:

Just choose the behavior you’d prefer directly in iOS Settings:

  • Switch to the eraser
  • Switch to the last used tool
  • Show the color palette

In case you’re curious, Paper is also updated to take full advantage of the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro display sizes, meaning there are no black bars letterboxing the app’s interface.

Paper is a free download, with in-app purchases, on the App Store.
