Pen & Ink, the highly rated iPad watercolor drawing app developed by Stepping Stone Software, has just gained a couple of significant new features through its latest update. Released in December 2012, Pen & Ink was updated to version 3.0 last February with a complete redesign of its interface and a major expansion of its toolset (see video below). It was then updated to version 3.1 late last April with enhanced export options and more control. Now, Pen & Ink has gone 3.2 with support for 4K output resolution and multiple canvas layers. Indeed, Pen & Ink now supports up to 4K output resolution in multiple formats and aspect ratios, including 4K cinema widescreen and 16:9 high-definition resolutions. A new addition to the app's already impressive set of different export options, this new feature allows exporting in available resolutions depending on device capabilities.

Pen & Ink 3.2 also includes better canvas orientation handling and bug fixes. Compatible with iPad running iOS 5.1.1 or later, Pen & Ink 3.2 is available now on the App Store for free, with in-app purchases offered for unlocking additional features.
