We are thrilled to announce a remarkable achievement by one of our partners, Jami Couch.

Scribble Support for iPad

One of the standout accomplishments that earned our partner this prestigious award was his addition of Scribble support for iPad within the Flutter framework. Scribble, a feature introduced by Apple, allows users to enter text on their iPad using the Apple Pencil with incredible precision.

His work enables Flutter developers to leverage Scribble in their own applications, opening up new possibilities for note-taking, drawing, and text input. Users can create content effortlessly and intuitively, making Flutter apps even more versatile and user-friendly.

Enhanced Text Editing Support on iOS Devices

Another remarkable achievement by Jami was his improvement to text editing support on iOS devices within the Flutter framework. Text editing is a critical component of any mobile application, and Jami recognized the importance of ensuring a smooth and seamless user experience for iOS app users.

Through his contributions, he addressed numerous issues and challenges related to text editing in Flutter, improving the overall user experience. His work included optimizing text input, enhancing text selection and manipulation, and ensuring compatibility with the latest iOS updates. As a result, Flutter developers can now create apps with advanced text editing capabilities that rival those of native iOS applications.
