iPad Pro with Apple Pencil

Post by Lynda Ballard » Mon Sep 21, 2015 1:13 pm

The new 12.9" iPad Pro will be out in November 2015. With the Apple Pencil it seems like it would be the perfect tool for Digitizing. Just load a picture and start digitizing right on the screen. The pictures and design files could be stored in iCloud Drive which can be upgraded to 50GB for just $0.99 per month. iCloud Drive can be opened on any computer and the designs transferred to a USB stick for use in the embroidery machine.
Please consider creating Embrilliance Stitch Artist apps for the iPad.

Embrilliance products run in computers or tablets that use Windows or OS X.

The iPad runs iOS which is not Windows and not OS X and therefore Embrilliance will not run on an iPad.

Yes, but with Parallels you can run any Mac program installed on your Mac from the iPad. Has anyone tried using that to access the digitizing feature with the Apple Pencil? I don't have the iPad Pro yet, but would be very interested to know if that scenario is viable. Regarding your response to the original poster, she wasn't asking if it worked on the iPad she was requesting that you consider developing Stitch Artist for the iPad. Your response was a bit dismissive and, frankly, rude.

I would love to use Embrilliance on my iPad. I only keep a computer for Embrilliance! I hate to think I have to purchase another computer if and when this one bites the dust just for Embrilliance. I’m Not tech savvy so I don’t understand running something off of the Mac! 🤷‍♀️

I was using my Embrilliance on a Windows 10 machine. I bought a new Mac Air, last of the old style, earlier this year, from Apple.com for $799. It is mainly for my Embrilliance software package. I am so happy with it. Fast boot time, clean easy use, easy to update. Have not turned my windows machine on in months. I also have an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil that I would like to run my Embrilliance on. I have all of the packages available for Embrilliance, and the software runs great on the Mac Air. I was not a Mac user, but after a few hours of playing, I was very proficient with the Mac, and could not be happier with my choice.

Good luck and have fun with your machine and Embrilliance. Either machine, the software is still awesome.

Pencil is not a mouse, like Wacom, Surface, etc. So there are problems there. Also, it would be very costly to make, as iPad shares none of the code used for the other OSes. Would anyone make purchase of such a thing? We're watching adoption rates of the iPad pencil and will continue to keep an eye on it.
