Inklet Turns MacBook Trackpad Into A Sketch Tablet

Mar 30, 2015

Category: Tech

When is a laptop like a tablet? When you have one of Apple’s new MacBooks and an app called Inklet.

The new line of MacBooks features trackpad technology Apple is calling “Force Touch,” which offers a higher level of sensitivity and accuracy as it gauges how hard you’re pressing down. Using Inklet and a stylus you can draw right on the trackpad itself, adjusting your level of pressure to affect the thickness of the lines. The app is compatible with a number of programs, including Photoshop (CS4, CS5, CS6, and CC versions), Pixelmator, GIMP, and more. Inklet also promises advanced palm rejection technology, meaning when you forget your hand is on the trackpad, your artwork isn’t ruined. Inklet costs $25, or $35 with a Pogo stylus included.
