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 ;)

Works awesome for games too! (SC, our! ) I love this app! This is software Samsung/Wacom should have bundled with every Note! I'm not sure how to do this, but could you add functionality for the button to work as a right click input? I also have a stylus that has an eraser on top that works with the S Note app and maybe some other apps, it would be cool if the eraser worked in GIMP and Xournal. Would the code have to be added to the Android side, Linux client, or both?
