support of new smart pen on Affinity Photo iPad

Recommended Posts




I am writing to you to suggest Affinity Photo iPad version to add support for a new smart pen,  SonarPen. It is the world's most affordable smart pen for the iPad at US$29.95. As a full-featured smart pen, SonarPen is designed to be easy to purchase, easy to use and also easy to support.


Supporting SonarPen in your app means existing and potential customers will be able to enjoy the enriched experience of an app + smart pen combination at the cost of a few cups of coffee. It is especially valuable for people with a tight budget and for owners of an iPad Air 2 or iPad 2017 which is not compatible with Apple Pencil. 


SonarPen features highlight:

- Pressure sensitive

- Palm rejection

- Shortcut button

- No battery or charging required

- Plug and play, no setup or pairing needed

- Magnetic pen holder bundled, bring SonarPen with the iPad


Adding support is really simple, developer of the popular note taking app, GoodNotes spent only 1 day for the migration. We made some free SonarPen samples for apps developer evaluation, and iOS driver is ready to dispatch. For more information, pls visit sonarpen.com.
