[prMac.com] New Haven, Connecticut - Stepping Stone Mobile has announced the release and immediate availability of Pen & Ink: A Watercolor Notebook 2.0 for iPad. Pen & Ink provides an elegant and simple interface for creating and managing sketches, notes and drawings. A natural, photo-library style interface allows for drag-and-drop notebook organization. The 5 brushes and 2 erasers respond naturally to user's motion, creating intricate textures and colors without complex options or configuration.
Users will primarily interact with the drawing surface, which offers unlimited levels of undo/redo, image tracing from camera or photo library, pinch-to-zoom functionality, and a full-screen editing mode with no visible menus. Individual images or entire notebooks can be exported to email, photo library, Dropbox, Facebook, and Twitter, or sent to other image or PDF editing apps.
The photo-library style gallery interface allows easy reorganization of pages, including duplicating pages, moving pages to different notebooks, and rearranging pages within a notebook. Users can personalize notebook covers and change pages' background images. The digital ink is best-of-breed, with vivid watercolor, textured colored pencil, and elegant pen, all at Retina display resolution.
"Watercolor pigment is complex. Our approach captures the nuance without compromising ease-of-use," said Matt Feiszli, founder of Stepping Stone Software. "We've innovated where we needed to while using the best of Apple's familiar user interface. The result is an easy to use notebook with elegant output, remarkable flexibility, and convenience."
