Pen and Paper Animation



Pen and Paper is a very easy to use drawing and animation application. The UI has nice 3D look and it is very intuitive and natural to use. There are no texts at all, but instead you can see big friendly icons and images. Also small children can easily use the application. It is simple and fast to create "Disney-style" frame based animations.

The application works in S60 5th edition touch phones, like: Nokia 5228, Nokia 5230, Nokia 5233, Nokia 5235, Nokia 5250, Nokia 5800, Nokia C5-03, Nokia C6-00, Nokia N97, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia X6

For S^3 devices, like Nokia N8, E7, C7, and C6-01, there is a beta version here

Download free "lite" version

Below is the link for downloading the lite version of the application. The saving and loading of pictures and animations have been disabled, but you can still load example pictures and animations which are included in the installation package.
PenAndPaper Lite v1.1 (S^3 beta package here)

How to get the full version for 99 cents (to enable saving and loading for pictures and animations)?

You can purchase the application via PayPal or a credit card using the button below. S^3 devices are not yet supported. The price is very low, only 99 cents! Note that you buy only the current version of the application, any future update is not included.

1) Use the "Buy Now" button below to buy it. It will cost you only 99 cents.
2) You will get the application by email after few days

Download example animations and pictures (works for full version only)

Unzip the file to the root of the memory card using OVI/PC Suite or the mass memory mode. The Pen And Paper application always uses the drive which has "biggest" drive letter. If you do not have a memory card you can unzip it to an internal drive.

Download free "lite" BETA version for S^3 devices like Nokia N8, E7, C7, C6-01

This S^3 version is still beta because SDL threads often panic when exiting the application. Below is the link for downloading the lite version of the application. The saving and loading of pictures and animations have been disabled, but you can still load example pictures and animations which are included in the installation package. Full version is not yet supported at all for S^3, because Python (needed only in full version) always requires network connection in S^3 for some strange(!) reason.
