Do you have a device that has a pressure-sensitive screen* or are you using an iPad with an Apple Pencil? If so, you should totally try out the new “Stylus mode (BETA)” from the Quick Settings or Study Settings screens.
Turn your character-writing into your very own piece of art by combining this feature with the “Rawest squigs” mode, and share it here.
This setting can also work while using your finger, but you’ll get a little more control, and it’ll be a lot more fun to use with even an affordable stylus ( Jake’s current recommendation).
What devices are supported?
For iOS, this means any iPhone after the 6s (inclusive) with any aftermarket stylus or an iPad with an Apple Pencil or aftermarket stylus. For Android, this mostly means the Samsung Galaxy Note series with the S pen input. Unfortunately, Android device support for pressure-sensitive input is limited at this time, so an aftermarket stylus will likely not be able to take advantage of this feature. As far as I’m aware, the Note with an S pen is the only mass-market Android device that reliably gives pressure-sensitive input data. I would love to find out otherwise, so if you have a device not listed above and find that it seems to be supported with stylus input mode, post below and let us know!
Let us know what you think. This is a BETA feature, and we’d love to continue to make it better and better.
