Version 3.1.1

June 12, 2020

  • Apple Pencil support: force touch, or double-tap the pencil to roll.
  • Force touch support for devices running iOS 9.
  • Haptic feedback support for older devices.
  • Haptic feedback is now disabled when in Low Power mode.
  • Now you can move between pages when the dice tray is out.
  • Force touch was not working if 3D Touch sensitivity was set to hard; now it does.
  • Touching dice to the right or left of the page dots is now handled correctly, and doesn’t change pages.
  • Locked dice are now moved inside the view the moment you stop dragging them around the screen, causing less issues with dice disappearing because of a change in view dimensions.
  • On iPhone and iPod touch, quickly switching to Pip from an app with the keyboard out doesn’t cause a visual glitch anymore.
  • The touch that opens the color picker cannot also change the color slot after the fact.
  • Touches on the color tray behave like touches on the color indicator, offering better user feedback, and disallowing opening the color picker if the finger moves.

Version 3.1

May 19, 2020

  • Pip now works on iPad, and takes advantage of Slide Over and Split View on supporting devices, so you can have your character sheet and your dice side by side.

  • Use force touch to roll on iOS 10+ and devices that support it.
  • Haptic feedback has been added to elements of the interface on supporting devices.
