Perspective Guides - Lay down perfect perspective in seconds with 1 point, 2 point, and 3 point perspective guides. Freely adjust vanishing points and horizon lines on, or beyond, the canvas. Enable the customizable perspective grid for additional help when drawing.
Curve Ruler - Bend this ruler to create curves you can't get with the Ellipse tool. Scale, move, and reset it.

We've made some impactful improvements, the biggest being the removal of the trial.
The Blog location changed under our noses, but it has been updated. You can access it, once again, from within the app.
The **No Network** message no longer appears prematurely, and we added a **Back** button to retry after a real network error.
We made clicking the Close button a bit easier for all popup dialogs (it was previously a bit small for fingers).
