    Pencil's got a good feature set, with palm rejection and tilt detection. Love using it with Paper, would be great to have it supported in ArtRage.

    We did some looking in to it during 2.0 development but at the time it didn't quite feel right for ArtRage. The Tilt mechanism in the stylus was used to generate 'pressure' data (the more you tilt, the higher the pressure data provided by the touch radius value) and that felt wrong for natural painting. Currently the device doesn't seem to support 'tilt' per se - It can be tilted to change a single value, but real tilt processing requires not only the amount of tilt but the rotational angle of the tilt, a second piece of data I don't believe the Paper 53 Pencil provides.

    We'll certainly be taking another look at it - We're currently working on a 2.1 update that should bring live tilt processing to the product but so far it looks like only the Apple Pencil will support both values required for tilt handling.
