PENCIL. NOW AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE.
After many months working to lay the groundwork for global shipping and sales, we are thrilled to announce that Pencil is now available for purchase worldwide. To celebrate, we’re offering a special discount on Amazon.com.
Called “the best iPad stylus” by Wired and The Verge, Pencil is the latest in our essential suite of mobile tools for creativity. Pencil’s special expressive features, erase, blend, and adaptive palm rejection, open up a new world of creative possibilities in Paper and other supported apps. This fall, we’re also introducing Surface Pressure, a new feature that uses Pencil’s uniquely-designed tip. Surface Pressure makes expression from every angle possible, and is coming to Pencil with the release of iOS 8.

Pencil comes in two models: Walnut, made from sustainable hardwood and including a built-in magnetic snap, and Graphite in black, brushed aluminum. Pencil is now for sale on Amazon UK, France, and Germany, and is available for shipping worldwide from Amazon.com. You can see all of the places to buy Pencil here. (To redeem the discount on Amazon.com, just click on the “Clip Coupon” link. Offer ends August 4, 2014.)
It’s been a long road to bring Pencil into the world. As we mentioned in November when Pencil first launched to US and Canada-based customers, crafting hardware from scratch is a complex endeavor, and making it available to creators around the world requires people with experience ranging from industrial design and mechanical engineering, to embedded systems and manufacturing management. Not to mention, legal expertise and in-depth knowledge of global logistics and distribution.
Thank you for your incredible support through these past months, and for spreading the love for Pencil far and wide. We hope the tools we make continue to inspire you to sketch, to create, and to bring your ideas to life.

Finally.

Big move from Google on UI design of new Android platform.

As a designer, love their attention to this level of details on UI behaviours.

But, this seems such a programmer-killing design spec; can’t help but wonder how all the OEMs making custom skins and loads of developers who can’t care less about transitions, etc would respond/adopt.

SURFACE PRESSURE FOR PENCIL.
COMING THIS FALL.

Pencil, called “the best iPad stylus” by Wired and The Verge, is about to get better. Today we’re excited to announce Surface Pressure, a new feature that uses Pencil’s uniquely-designed tip. Surface Pressure comes to Pencil with the release of iOS 8 this Fall.

Same Pencil, More Expressive

Pencil’s tapered tip was inspired by the expressive richness of real pencil points, which allow creators to change the character of the line with the angle of the tip. With Surface Pressure you’ll be able to control the lines you create based on how much of Pencil’s tip or eraser is in contact with your iPad. Use the point for fine details or the angled edge for broad strokes. Surface Pressure unlocks new capabilities for each of Paper's toolsfill faster as you draw, shade as you sketch, or carve away in varying widths as you erase.

Stay in the flow and change drawing styles simply by changing the way you hold Pencilno stopping to fuss with the settings menu. This new feature is unique to Pencil and will be unlocked for all existing Pencil users with an update to Paper this Fall.

Commitment to Customers Old and New

We’re committed to always improving the products we build—not only for new creators, but for everyone who’ve been with us since day one. Pencil launched last November with palm rejection, flip-to-erase, and blend as core features. Surface Pressure builds on Pencil’s simplicity by unlocking a new spectrum of expressive possibilities.

Surface Pressure will come as a free software upgrade to the original Pencil this Fall with the release of iOS 8. U.S. and Canada customers can buy Pencil now on our online Store and on Amazon. We’re working hard to bring Pencil to international customers, too. Sign up to be notified when it’s available near you.

This looks awesome. Wish they’d expand the countries first though.

Google thinks about improving UX by reducing page load times, Apple thinks about UX by making it easier to scroll that page.
