I received this message today when I tried to connect my Pogo Connect to my iPad (4Gen):
"Pogo Connect support will return in a future Paper release."?
Pressure support is important to me and having it pulled out without explanation is frustrating.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Some work had to be done to part of Paper that affected Pogo Connect. We expect to restore support in the next update, which we are working on now. We included a warning in the update notes, but we understand that it’s easy to miss those.
In the next update. We do not have an estimated date.
Hi Lev and Gerald,
It wasn’t a choice we were glad to make. Fortunately it should be restored very soon. The work to restore Pogo Support has already been finished and will be in the next update. We just need to finish a few more bug fixes and then we’ll be ready to ship the release. I just want to reassure you that we’ve already managed to restore Pogo support, so you will not have to wait long.
Lev, yes you will need to update to the most recent version of Paper to use Pencil. You could do that now and regain Pogo support very soon, or you could wait for the update.
Gerald, blending with the finger and palm detection require distinguishing between the finger and the stylus. Pencil was built to be able to do this, but Pogo Connect was not. We might be able to find a way to make blend more widely available, but I just wanted to explain why it’s not possible to do it the same way for Pogo as it is for Pencil. Likewise for smart pairing. We designed and built Pencil specifically to be able to do this. Pogo Connect was not designed or built for it.
Michael, Pogo Support will be back very soon. We’ve completed the work to restore support and are testing the release for stability before sending it to Apple.
Ron, the last I heard was that support on the iPad Air was impossible. If they’ve found a way to fix it, I haven’t heard about that yet.
Jay, we apologize for the confusion. How do you think it could have been better communicated? I don’t think a global notification in the app would have been appropriate, because Pogo Connect is not widely used with Paper. What would be a better way to reach people?
I think it’s very complicated. The new version is being reviewed by Apple and will be out soon.
Please download the new update for restored Pogo Connect support. Sorry for the lapse in support.
Note: Pogo Connect and Pencil cannot be connected at the same time.
No changes were made to that. We never got that working to our satisfaction.
To my knowledge it’s available in the most recent version.
I replied to your post on the other thread.
That would be your decision. I will say that Pogo issues are generally low priority here, because only a very small amount of Paper users are using the Pogo stylus. When priorities are set, we try to work on things that affect most users.
We’ve been updating Paper pretty frequently these past few months.

Pogo support has been discontinued due to the low usage rates.
