Pattern was a design and prototyping tool designed for the iPad. The intention was to create a notebook style drawing tool that would take advantage of the Apple Pencil, which was introduced around the same time.
At the time most drawing applications focused on freeform artist tools, such as brushes and other painterly effects. Pattern had a strong focus on more architectural qualities, allowing the user to create geometric shapes and lines that would adhere to the document grid.
Pattern also created UI specific drawing tools, such as device templates and quick wire-framing tools such as text. These tools were coupled with the ability to annotate freehand with the Apple Pencil.
