Here's another iPad Pro prototype! ๐Ÿ˜€ This time I'm using the Apple Pencil for text selection + copy & paste in a Markdown editor ๐Ÿ“ I really love the idea of using the pencil as a dedicated pointing device - it adds a whole new layer of possible interactions ๐Ÿ‘

They're ๐Ÿฃ socks from Medicine - which is one of my favorite clothing brands here in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ (especially for socks, which, let's face it - is the most important piece of clothing ๐Ÿ˜…). Not sure if they ship abroad, but I can also recommend Happy Socks from ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช:

iOS lets you differentiate between touch input and pencil input (which is what I use to allow the pencil to select text without causing scrolling), so I don't need to do any sort of palm detection - the system handles all that stuff for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Does pushing and holding on the spacebar turn it into a โ€œtrackpadโ€ on the iPad Pro? It does on iPhone, kind of...

Looks great but this basically means when typing that text everytime I want to select something I have to pickup my pencil? Donโ€™t get me wrong I think thatโ€™s awesome work, but is this convenient?

This is the exact type of thing that I think makes the pencil a great mouse replacement for the iPad if we had more features like this for it built it! Awesome!

I'll either A) Open source it B) Publish it on the App Store or C) Both ๐Ÿ™‚ For now it's just a prototype but will figure out what I'll do with it soon. Regardless I'll definitely write some articles about my learnings on ๐Ÿ‘
