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 ;)

Awesome app Maybe it needs a CURRENTLY NOT FOR WINDOWS message for people who don't appreciate the good work you made, It works better than I expected, it don't even have publicity, it is definitely an awesome app.

Good app. Could use some updating(ie:customizable onscreen shortcuts and tablet background color choices like black or white to conserve battery life). On another note, not sure what everyone is talking about but the app works fine in conjucntion with my Windows 7 pc.
