What's New

This update adds support for the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil plus lots of bonus features for all devices!

With iPad Pro you can now use the pressure and tilt sensors on the Apple Pencil to drive any brush parameter of your choosing with the fancy new input curves system! A bunch of new brush presets are included which are tuned for use with the Pencil. You can also build your own and share them in the community brush library. Check the online help and SketchClubTV YouTube channel for new tutorials and demos.

Speed up your workflow and take advantage of the bigger screen sizes now with the most common layer operations included right in the main toolbar. Tap and hold the tool button to bring up a floating quick tool switch panel which snaps to screen edges and now remembers its settings between sessions.

New brush naming, starring, sorting, and view options have been added to give you quick access to all your favorite brushes! New brush features like pattern textures, saved blend modes, and input curves take the capabilities of this powerful tool to a whole new level never before seen on mobile devices!

The popular Procedural Bristles preset has been refreshed with a fantastic performance boost and improved variable bristle blending!

And as always this update includes all kinds of fresh bug fixes and smaller enhancements. Thanks everyone for your wonderful suggestions and feedback. There's a lot more on the way for you in 2016!
