Powerful iPad drawing app Procreate has just received a major update with the move to version 2.2.
Along with being fully optimized for iOS 8 and the powerful A8X chip in the iPad Air 2, the app now features a new type of palm rejection. Developer Savage Interactive discusses more about Palm Support in the release notes:
Palm Support is like palm rejection, but better. It’s always on and you can use a regular capacitive stylus or even your finger. You can finally use gestures in tandem with resting your palm on the surface of the iPad screen without the worry of drawing over your canvas. Palm Support is completely transparent and will not interrupt performance or your workflow.
Users can now also take advantage of iCloud Drive, AirDrop, and AirPrint from the app.
Here’s a list of other changes:
- Rebuilt some major parts of Procreate to improve stability and memory usage
– Updated all stylus SDKs
– Added eyedropper as a stylus button option
– Added Merge Down to layer options menu
– Improved Palette Library interface
– Improved Brush Settings interface
– Interface tweaks throughout Procreate
– Bug fixes
Only for the iPad/iPad mini, Procreate can be downloaded now on the App Store for $5.99.
The last major update before today’s improvements, version 2.1, landed back in July. That version brought the ColorDrop feature, support for the Pencil by FiftyThree stylus, and more.
