Hey Andie! There is a stylus pressure sensitivity toggle switch you can turn on and off in the app settings. Check to see if that is turned off?

Hey, thanks for the feedback. What device do you have and what draw tool brush are you using?

A note pro, and i am using the little marker, the first tool to the left.
the pressure sensitivity works from the size 1 and bigger but smaller than 1 it doesn't work.

Thanks for your feedback. The stylus pressure does need a bit more tweaking. We will look into this. Is there any app in particular you are comparing the behavior to?

Hi. I hope the original poster doesn't mind me butting in, but as far as pressure sensitivity in other apps goes, I have to say that Autodesk Sketchbook is hard to beat. It is responsive and quick and you can easily draw the faintest of lines. You can build up a stronger line with repeated strokes or more pressure - just like the real thing. It is noticablty better and more natural feeling than all the other Android drawing apps and would certainly make a good benchmark.


Just wanted to add - the drawing and pressure sensitivity in Flipaclip on my Galaxy Note 10.1 is already pretty good.

Thanks for the input on this Ian. I'll take a look at that app.

Thanks for the provided info. Can you try going into FlipaClip settings and set the draw input to only Stylus? I want to verify the stylus would still draw with this setting and touch drawing would not draw. Thanks!

Hello! Apologies for any delay in getting back to you! We have plans to improve the tools to behave much better with touch so it will look like it has pressure support. Thank you!

i did that, and it does what it supposed to do. The stylus draws but not the finger.
