Carbo 1.2 gets iPad Pro/Apple Pencil drawing feature

Mons, Belgium - Creaceed today releases Carbo 1.2 today with new drawing capabilities. This new version is specifically optimized for iPad Pro / Apple Pencil, and iPhone 6s pressure sensitive display. Carbo lets you capture and organize handwritten notes and sketches, bringing handwriting in the digital age.

Carbo's innovative scanning & visualization technology sets you free from pixel artefacts, while preserving all expressiveness of your original drawings. With version 1.2, Carbo brings a new pen tool that allows creating new notes or editing existing ones. Carbo's pen tool reacts to a number of input features of Apple Pencil such as pressure, velocity, tilt angle to provide variable thickness strokes. When not using Apple Pencil, Carbo reverts to using pressure (iPhone 6s) & velocity to provide a natural drawing experience.

New Features:

  • Sketching notes directly within Carbo is now possible, using either finger, styluses or Apple Pencil. This highly accurate drawing technology reacts to velocity, pressure and more
  • Creation of empty notes
  • New 'Pen' tool for drawing

Hardware Support:

  • Support for iPad Pro & Apple Pencil, including sensitivity to velocity, pressure, input angle, as well as improved accuracy over touch
  • iPad Multitasking
  • Support for iPhone 6s / 6s Plus pressure sensitive 3D Touch display
  • Other devices without pressure sensitivity: support for variable thickness based on drawing velocity

Device Requirements:

  • Universal application (iPhone, iPad) requiring iOS 9.0 or higher
  • Any iPhone or iPad with at least a 5-MP camera (iPhone 4S and newer models, iPad 3 and newer models, iPad mini)

Pricing and availability:

Carbo 1.2 for iOS 9 is available worldwide on the App Store in 11 languages (English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Portuguese, Norwegian, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese). Carbo 1.2 price is $7.99 (USD) and a free upgrade for existing owners.
