What's new in version 5.95
- added iPad Pro support
- bug fixes

* As ArtStudio is still compatible with iOS5 (and works on iPad 1), we had to remove Wacom stylus support - because their latest sdk is not compatible with iOS5.x. We cannot use older Wacom SDK, because it crashes on iOS 9. Sorry.

* We are working on new ArtStudio for iOS and OSX, it will support all styluses and will add a lot of new features. Please follow us on facebook:
or twitter:
to keep up with the progress.
