Apple Pencil Hover

So, apple just released the iPads pro with an exciting new feature called Apple Pencil hover, I am sure painting software can take advantage of that. Any Ideas?

I was thinking the brush preview can be shown when the pencil hovers above the screen, showing the brush size/shape/tilt and orientation live (with the option to automatically turn that preview off once you touch the screen). That should allow for more precision and possibly interesting "real" brush simulations, but there are likely many more possibilities to make use of that feature and I am curious to see how it's being used

I was emailing with the dev yesterday, they're already working on implementing the hover feature for the new M2 iPads! :)

Hover feature is there, you just have to turn on the cursor. You can do it here:
Artstudio > Preferences > Interface > Cursor Shape
