    NEW Sketchbook Pro 6

    So i'm seeing a new version of sketchbook pro on the Apple App store. Has anyone else seen it? I can't seem to see anything about it even on Autodesks website. It looks like it's a Mac exclusive.

    Will be taking it for a test run soon as i'm done with my current work.

    Here's a link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sketc...53377898?mt=12

    I remember there was mention that Sketchbook Pro needed to update anyways to get in line with the new touch gestures for intuos5 and not just Mac.

    Fairly decent update - this one may take me away from mypaint.

    Yeah I'm actually liking those synthetic paints. Just trying to get more control out of them.

    Yeah, they're a little rough by default, but I've tried a few tweaks with some good results. I like new blender brushes as well. They could be better - like the option of picking your own custom brush tips for a more grainy or smooth blend, but still not bad.

    Out of curiosity for those who have purchased from Autodesk. Does it normally take a day or 2 to receive an email/serial on an upgrade version you downloaded?

    Good question Arshes. I bought my upgrade direct from Autodesk earlier today, received my purchase confirmation emails, but no serial number...yet. I've sent them a message asking what's up but, it being Autodesk, I've not had a reply as of yet. I can continue with the trial but it's a bit annoying having bought a product but not being able to use it as an owner.

    Thanks joeparis

    I did contact Autodesk and they told me it would take a couple days (which is silly, I bought the digital download so I didn't have to wait).

    Granted it's a minor gripe given how cheap Sketchbook Pro is. I do it to support software makers who make affordable solutions for artists.

    But I didn't have this problem with other software I purchased online.
    I didn't even get a confirmation email. I can log in and see the order

    As it says "Order Completed"
    As far as I care, if I didn't get my serial number and you're charging me, it's not completed.

    Ahh well.

    I've been playing email ping pong with Autodesk. Keep getting automated replies telling me the numbers are in my account page and in the order fulfilled email...which they aren't. They eventually sent the serial number - problem being that they did not include the product key also. A few more emails later they re-sent the serial number, again without the key.

    It was only through personal intervention from the SBPro Product Manager that I got both. I'm still chasing the Autodesk shop for the key, however, to see if they eventually understand that a serial AND a key are required.
