With Haptic Touch, you can control the stroke with the pressure factor of your touch. In case you’re utilizing a more established iPhone, the stroke will only be affected by your drawing speed. With a quick swipe, the pen tool will create a thin line, while a quick swipe with the pencil will create a thinner, lighter stroke.

The marker tool doesn’t appear to be affected by drawing speed, yet you can layer your marker strokes to achieve a more richer, fuller color.
