Why limiting the Wacom digitizer of your Galaxy Note screen at just your mobile, and not using it for graphic design on your computer? Thanks to VirtualTablet, now you can use your smartphone/tablet as a graphic tablet for your Windows PC or Mac!
- Galaxy Note series (Galaxy Note 1, 2, 3, 4, Note 8.0, Note 10.1, etc)
- few ASUS tablets
- Windows Tablet (MS Surface, Slate 7, ATIV, ASUS Eee Slate, etc.)
Instead these are the devices that aren’t supported:
- Galaxy Tab
- LG G Pad, G3 stylus
- ASUS tablets
- Nexus Tablets (Nexus 7, 10)
- HP TouchPad
- other usual tablets & smart phones.
If your device is supported, we can start the tutorial: long story short, we need to install a client app on your smartphone or tablet, and a server one on your Windows PC or Mac.
- Download the client app for your device (Play Store: buy or free with ads; Windows Store)
- Download and install VirtualTablet Server for Windows 7/8 or Mac OS X (Lion and above)
- Be sure that both the device and the computer are on the same Wi-Fi network
- Start the server app first, and only then the client app on your device
- The client should recognize automatically the server address, so you just have to tap on Connect (otherwise, if you know it you can try to manually insert the IP address of the server, or you can try to disable your firewall and/or antivirus, but only if you know what you’re doing)
- Now your device is ready to be used as a Wacom tablet: open a graphic app on your computer and start drawing!
Obviously, the newer your device is, the more accurate will be the result on screen when you draw.
