Linea Sketch 2.1 brings custom color pickers, new color sets, web design templates & more

Tuesday morning, developer The Iconfactory pushed Linea Sketch 2.1 to App Store, the latest and greatest version of its award-winning iPad drawing app with comprehensive support for pressure and tilt-based drawing using Apple Pencil or compatible third-party styli.

Version 2.1 brings custom color pickers, colors sets, new web design templates and more.

With custom color pickers, Linea customers can use sliders, hex values or an eyedropper to create their perfect color scheme, and keep a history of changes. Tying perfectly with that are new color sets that include pastels, art deco, flesh tones, app design and more.

And with new built-in templates, customers can create checklists for to-dos and groceries, prototype mobile apps and even create responsive web designs, with or without notes.

Aside from implementing a Tip Jar to support development of the app without becoming a subscriber, this edition of Linea Sketch also includes a couple of other nice-to-haves, like optimized performance, smoother pencil and pen tools, a bunch of bug fixes and more.
