Handwriting App Ink Adds New Fountain Pen Tool, Bluetooth Styli Support And More
Ink, the handwriting and drawing app for iPad developed by Intryss, has just received its first major update, four months after its launch in the App Store. Ink's first major update introduces a new tool called Fountain Pen, in addition to the existing Gel Pen, Felt Pen, and Pencil tools. Like its counterpart in the real world, Ink's very own Fountain Pen is recommended for producing beautifully elegant handwriting. The update also adds support for Pogo Connect and Adonit Jot Touch. Now, Ink can connect to these popular Bluetooth-powered styli to take advantage of their key features, including pressure sensitivity and shortcut actions. In line with this, Ink has been enhanced with a new Writing Mode for palm rejection. Furthermore, the update brings the ability to copy and paste text to and from Ink. Also, it delivers the following improvements:

The app is compatible with iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. Note that this is the last version of Ink to support iOS 5. "To continue to take advantage of the latest features in Ink, please consider upgrading to iOS 6 or higher," advises Intryss. "If you use iOS 5 you will still be able to continue using this version of Ink as long as you like - just make sure you keep a backup of this version as you will not be able to download it from the App Store after the next version is released."
