As the new iPad Pros start to arrive to consumers around the world, app updates continue to roll in for the new devices. Popular graphic design app OmniGraffle 3 has been updated this even with support for the new iPad Pro displays, as well as optimization for the new Apple Pencil.

For the second-generation Apple Pencil, OmniGraffle 3 is adding support for the new double-tap functionality. The app will respect the system setting for double-tap when there is an equivalent, but there will also be additional app-specific functionality available to users.

For those unfamiliar, there is an option in the iOS Settings app to customize the functionality of the double-tap action. This can allow for things such as switching between writing and erasing. OmniGraffle users, however, will have a bit more control over the double-tap functionality:

Apple Pencil (2nd generation) — Added support for the new Apple Pencil’s double-tap feature. OmniGraffle respects the system Apple Pencil setting when there is an appropriate equivalent in OmniGraffle, and offers additional Graffle-specific customizations in Settings (from the App Menu in the Document Browser toolbar).

In addition to new Apple Pencil optimization, OmniGraffle is also adding support and optimization for the new displays on the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros:

Support for New iPad Screen Sizes — Added support for the new iPad screen sizes and hardware changes.

OmniGraffle 3 is available for download on the App Store.
