iPad is such a great device for brainstorming and capturing ideas from the physical world (camera) that it’s sad to see so poor support. This is something Miro has figured out. Hopefully, FigJam is coming to iPad through the new Figma app.

For left-handed users, a mouse (non-ambidextrous) isn’t an option for drawing. Apple pencil support would be HUGE! Please consider prioritizing this. Thanks!

Fingers crossed! I was really hoping that it would have good Apple Pencil support, as I currently use Jamboard, and OneNote for sketching. Having full support for the iPad would be the dream!

Hey just an update. Officially Apple Pencil is not supported … but if you have iPadOS 14.5, try Chrome for iPad! =) Scribble isn’t supported, unfortunately.

+1 for support

+1 would love this!

It roughly works with the app Figurative but if you don’t have a keyboard paired it won’t be very fun, but accessible.

This would unlock white boarding with my remote team. I can’t draw quickly with a mouse.

+1 Would love to use Apple Pencil in FigJam.
