Inklet Turns Macbook Trackpad Into Pen Tablet

by Lambert Varias

Ten One Design’s app could be a godsend to artists who can’t afford a full-fledged tablet. It can be used with any pen-like object, but when combined with the company’s Pogo Sketch pen, Inklet adds touch-sensitivity to your unibody MacBook/MacBook Pro’s trackpad.

Inklet also has handwriting recognition and supports a variety of applications, including Pixelmator, Circus Ponies NoteBook, Photoshop CS3, CS4 and Elements, Corel Painter and even Word 2008. It also detects “unwanted” trackpad touches, say when your palm is resting on the trackpad.

As great as it seems to be, Inklet doesn’t change the fact that the MacBook/MacBook Pro trackpad is quite small, so if you need a bigger area then you might find the Inklet too cumbersome. But if you’re strapped for cash or if you’re just starting to learn how to use graphics editing programs, Inklet may be just the thing for you. You can buy Inklet at Ten One Design for $25 (USD); a downloadable demo is also available at the website. Inklet is Mac-only, and it only works with the multitouch trackpads.
