    Self-promotion warning!

    I too was intrigued by the iPad Pro as a design tool and even the iPhone. I started an iOS app that could create / edit Sketch documents. I stopped working on it after taking a job, but I think I broke good ground on gestures and UI.

    This is a demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z42LjDcFUz0

    Honestly, I think there is no excuse for there not being a version of Sketch on the iPad. It's sad that to make any edit on a Sketch document, I have to get on my Mac. The gestures are not that hard to figure out. Considering how many design tools there are, and how pretty-well-defined the requirements are in this space, at least for an 80% of people tool, I'm surprised there is not a version of Sketch on the iPad. We need to move forward on that soon. Whoever does will make lots of $.

      I think it's something to do with the precision and how the iPad handles input that makes it hard to replicate on an iPad... Figma devs have already covered why we don't see these kinda tools on tablets.. ultimately it boils down to needing a mouse.
