Layers - Pro Edition for iPad

Artists in the iPad and tablet community rejoice! Layers for iPad ($5.99) is ready for purchase in the App Store. If you have already bought the previously reviewed and notoriously powerful Layers iPhone app you know what this app is capable of. The app has a full iPad optimized interface and a bunch of new features to take advantage of the large 10″ screen and faster processor. For starters on the iPad Layers app you’ll have the ability to add transparent layers and use a history panel to jump back in time. You can add photos to your drawings and rescale them.

Layers for iPad

There is an online gallery in the Layers app and you can check it out for inspiration or create your own account where you can upload artwork you create. Others can comment on your work. You can even watch replays of your paintings in a timeline so you can see them come to life.

There is no pressure sensitivity in the iPad yet, and therefore not in Layers app which would make it a ton more fun to use, perhaps even with a stylus or drawing pen. Landscape support is used to show your recent paintings and activity in a well designed easy to view layout.
