Hey, isn’t that the actual display resolution of the iPad Pro? Well, it is. And it’s now supported by the popular social drawing app developed by

iPad Pro and Apple Pencil optimizations

Through its latest update, Sketch Club has been optimized for iPad Pro. What’s more, it has been made compatible with the the 12.9-inch tablet’s official companion pressure-sensitive stylus, the Apple Pencil.

“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!” notes. “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.”

Sketch Club iPad

The addition of iPad Pro support and Apple Pencil integration in Sketch Club make for a pair of significant improvements as the massive screen of the tablet and the convenience of the stylus lend themselves well to mobile drawing.

More improvements

Aside from optimizations for iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, the latest update to Sketch Club brings improvements for all other devices that it supports.

These include: quick access to the most common layer operations in the main toolbar; new options for naming, starring, sorting, and viewing brushes; new brush features such as pattern textures, saved blend modes, and input curves; a refreshed Procedural Bristles preset; and various bug fixes and minor enhancements.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.1 or later, Sketch Club is available on the App Store for $2.99.

Sketch Club offers drawing enthusiasts, ranging from hobbyists on iPhone to professional artists on iPad Pro, a place to not only create their masterpieces but also to showcase and share them with other people through the app’s integrated social network. Truly, not for nothing is it called Sketch Club.
