iPad artists will be heartened to hear that Wacom’s Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is now compatible with Savage’s Procreate 2.3 software, the application of choice of many artists when it comes to drawing and illustration on the iPad.

Wacom designed its Intuos Creative Stylus 2, a pressure-sensitive stylus, with creative professionals in mind. By making the stylus compatible with Savage’s Procreate, Wacom will open its popular stylus up to a far wider base of professional artists.

The Intuos Creative Stylus 2 will be supported in Procreate 2.3 on all compatible iPads.

Users of the iPad Air 2 can connect and use all the features of the Intuos Creative Stylus 2 in Procreate 2.3, but it will remain officially unsupported. Savage and Wacom will continue to work together to improve and expand compatibility with the iPad Air 2. Other exciting additions to Procreate version 2.3 include the all-new Light Interface, along with stability upgrades and bug fixes from previous editions. The integration in Procreate is an important addition to the selection of supported apps with the Intuos Creative Stylus 2, and both teams look forward to seeing what their customers are creating with their newly compatible tools.

“Customers long hoped to pair the precision and natural feel of the Intuos Creative Stylus with the powerful and fluid tools of Procreate. This creative vision is now a reality due to the collaborative efforts of the Wacom and Procreate teams,” Wacom said in a statement.

Founded in 1983, Wacom is a global company based in Japan with subsidiaries and affiliate offices around the world to support marketing and distribution in over 150 countries.

Savage Interactive is the developer of illustration software Procreate for iPad.
