    Augie shows off his sketchbook, conveniently located in a new app on his iPad. Plus, a heartbreaking tale of a man and his dog, and some newsbits from Seattle.

    I tried out that Paper app. The interface is very nice and there is a lot to recommend. When I saw that they were charging 1.50 just to add a single pen to the app I just got annoyed and deleted the app. With so many excellent apps out there for 69p I can't see any reason to pay about 7 just to get a single app fully functional.

    Maybe if my art stretched to anything other than one headshot of Superman I'd have felt differently.

    Yeah, the In App Purchase model is a bit controversial. It all depends on how you look at it, though. I only paid for the pens I'd use and the overall cost seemed worth it. I might go back someday and buy another tool, but at that point I think the overall cost of ownership will have proven itself out.
