GfxTablet


GfxTablet allows you to use your Android powered Tablet to act almost like real graphics tablet! Connect your device via WiFi and start painting in any image editing program on your Desktop PC. This is best used when you have a Stylus Pen on your device, because the app supports pressure sensitivity!

Attention: Currently works only under Linux, because we don't know anyone that can develop a driver for Windows or Mac. If you want to see what the app does, try to boot with a LiveCD or install VirtualBox to run a Linux in your host system.

It was a lot of work to create this app! So If you want to support this open source project please consider a donation on PayPal (see details here: http://rfc2822.github.io/GfxTablet/). Thanks in advance ;)

Oh linux Can't get internet on my ubuntu. I really hate Linux. Would be nice if the developer provided the companion pc app in deb format for offline install. Making me clone a repo is just impossible in my case

I just wanted to say, don't reply with hate to people "blackmailing" you guys with a 1* rating... if they give it a 1* rating for another version of the app... just ignore it
