For many artists, Linea is a creative tool that’s just as important as Procreate and Photoshop. It makes us happy to see the app we created for our own sketches become something that so many other designers rely on.
But recently we’ve been seeing that more technically inclined folks are also discovering Linea’s power. Whether you’re an engineer designing bridges or a podcaster who needs to push a few pixels, Linea is a wonderful development tool.
Marco Arment’s experience of annotating building plans alongside an architect and his wife gets at the heart of it: your iPad becomes a miniature whiteboard with layers that you can use to think about problems.
I made this discovery during Linea’s development and have been preaching it ever since. Here are just a few things I did with Linea last year:
- Figuring out a perspective transformation on a curved surface
- Calculating a linear interpolation for a sparse set of data
- Debugging a responder chain issue
- Wireframing views and interactions for a new app
- Discovering that seasons can be represented using Bezier paths
- And, of course, my TODO list
These tasks are certainly creative, but not really artistic. If your work falls in similar lines, check out Linea today. You’ll thank your lucky stars!
