Paper by fiftythree, the popular iPad sketching app, has recieved a major update with a focus on expanded color options. New features center mostly around colors, including a color mixer, and new palettes. Additionally, Paper has added support for the Pogo Connect Bluetooth stylus, tweaking Paper’s Expressive Ink Engine to respond to pressure when using the Connect.

The new Mixer lets you play with different color shades while keeping Paper's natural, artistic feel. They're using natural blending technology to keep things smooth and logical. Add pigments as you would with real ink or paint, get results as you would with real ink or paint. Yes, yellow and blue makes green!

There's also a set of palettes which Paper says were hand-crafted by color experts. You can flip through them and when you find one you like, you can rest assured that all the colors on that palette will work beautifully, tastefully, together. Palettes are provided for presentations, drafting, portraits, and travel. (And you can create your own with the Mixer, of course.)

The update is free, and the Mixer is available as one of Paper’s paid tools for a $1.99 in-app purchase.
