Archives For Digital Inking
There are signs that Digital Ink might be making a comeback of sorts. Of course for some of us it never really faded away. For all of Microsoft's efforts, and the efforts of quite a few passionate Tableteers in the original age of Tablet PCs, Digital Inking never really...
Well, well, well. This is an interesting pairing. Evernote is announcing that it has acquired Cocoa Box Design, the company that created the very popular Digital Inking iOS App, Penultimate.
Penultimate is still my favorite iPad Inking App and I've given (and will continue to give) most of them a try. I like the way Digital Ink lays down on the screen and the wrist protection.
Yesterday Google released an update to its iOS GMail App that brought new features like vacation responders, different signatures for mobile emails and scribbling.
It looks like the stylus and Kickstarter are an interesting match. We've seen the Cosmonaut launched on Kickstarter before. And now there's a new stylus seeking funding called the Estylo 1.1. What's different here is that the Estylo 1.1 is made of wood.
There's not much here yet, but GBM reader Jason Horrocks points us to this Channel 9 link that talks about pen and touch input. Here's a quote: Metro style apps are much better with ink! In Windows 8, you code your Metro style apps for touch, and get pen and mouse supp...
Been fielding a good number of private questions as of late regarding tablet options and alternatives to OneNote, specifically Android- and iPad-based ones. Trend seems to be growing, so I thought I should address it publicly. Beats turning it into my email signature.
Over the weekend I posted about Bamboo Paper, an Inking and doodling App for the iPad, that Wacom is marketing along side its Bamboo Stylus for the iPad.
I had a couple of hours or so to kill yesterday so I thought I'd hop over to the local Best Buy and go hands on with the HTC Flyer.
Chris Davies of SlashGear has an HTC Flyer in his hands and has put up a video that demonstrates the Inking functionality for that device.
You might have missed this over the holiday weekend, so here's your chance. The good folks at Phatware have given us five codes to give away a free copy of WritePad for the iPad.
The folks at Phatware who create WritePad for the iPad (and other platforms) have recently updated WritePad for the iPad to version 5.
I received this email from GBM Reader Adam K a few weeks ago. It's taken me awhile to get this post ready to respond but here it is.
Kickstarter projects I think can best be described as crowd sourced startups. A company announces a new product, takes pre-orders (or "investments") and eventually comes out with the product or project.
I'm sure you've heard that you can enable a few multi-touch gestures on your iPad (either the original or the iPad 2. We blogged about it here where you can find the instructions to turn them on.
It seems appropriate on some level to talk about my iPad usage after spending the last 11 months with the device now that we are on the cusp of the newer iPad 2 getting into consumer's hands as early as tomorrow.
This morning I received an email from a long time reader asking the question in the title of this post. Here's an except from that email: I’m a vice president in a large company and have relied on my tablet for more years than I want to admit. WHERE IS ONENOTE IN A...
Digital Inkers will want to check this out. No question about it. Is PhatPad for the iPad an App that will make Digital Inkers forget Tablet PCs.
OK, I'm just going to say this and then follow up with a review tomorrow. If you're like me and been looking for a good Digital Inking solution for the iPad, you need to check out PhatPad for the iPad.
Ina Fried at D: All Things Digital is reporting that N-Trig is hoping to woo Android Tablet developers to the world of pen and touch.
Good news for digital inkers who use an iPad. PhatWare the makers of WritePad, PhatNotes and other digital inking software has just released PhatPad for the iPad.
The folks at Netbooknews.com have gotten their hands on the peculiar Eee Note EA800 from Asus and put up an unboxing video. They give it a quick once over and note that they've been working with a Chinese language version of the device and an English language ROM that h...
The quest for a good stylus that works with devices using capacitive screens like the iPad continues. But I think I might have found a winner.
I've got one of these on order and I continue my experiments in stylus comparisons for the iPad, but in the meantime you might want to check out Josh Smith's review of the HardCandy Stylus on our sister site, Notebooks.com.
With the release of the Tega v2 and the HP Slate 500 many a Tableteer has been hoping, and some have been praying that the slate form factors will handle Digital Inking well on capacitive screens.
First up, before I get to the subject of this InkShow, thank you from the bottom of my heart and from my family for all the kind wishes, prayers, and support the GBM community has offered on the occasion of the passing of my Mother.
Like me, Hector Gomez is on the lookout for a good stylus solution for the iPad. It looks like he might have found one from Targus.
After writing up a four month look back at some of the Apps I've been using on the iPad and another on the dreaded sytli I've been testing and using, GBM reader Jim, pointed me to a recently released App, called Noterize.
In yesterday's post about my 4-month experiences with the iPad I mentioned I had ordered another stylus or two (I know right, the dreaded stylus, I'm such a FAIL).
Cocoa Box Design, the developers of the iPad App, Pen Ultimate (iTunes link) have pushed out an update (v 1.2) that makes digital inking for note takers easier.
TenOneDesign is teasing us with something that might never be. In the video below you can see them using a PogoSketch stylus to Ink on an iPad.
It is a little over two months since I got my hands on the iPad (WiFi model). I did an update 1 month in and while this two month update may be a few days late, it is only because we've been working hard to open Wayside Theatre's season opening production of Shenandoah....
As promised, Hector Gomez put up a video of Inking on the iPad with Penultimate. Here it is. Thanks to Hector for doing this. Like I said in my earlier post it is all about the timing of how the stylus and hour hand interact with the screen. http://www.youtube.com/wa...
Chris Davies of SlashGear has penned a post on why he thinks the stylus and Digital Inking isn't dead. Leaping off from Steve Jobs' famous quote, "It’s like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it." Chris does a good job of distinguishing between wh...
