Inklet

2.1.1
09 January 2018

Allows your trackpad to emulate a pen tablet.

Overview

Inklet allows your trackpad to emulate a pen tablet. When you're using a Pogo Sketch, the trackpad even becomes pressure sensitive.

Features
  • The full tablet - Moving your Pogo Sketch lightly around the trackpad will allow the cursor to hover without inking. Increase pressure to draw; heavier pressure will result in a thicker stroke.
  • Handwriting recognition - Inklet works with the handwriting recognition built into OS X. Use your trackpad to jot notes or doodle.
  • Advanced palm rejection - Inklet includes an advanced algorithm to detect unwanted trackpad touches. This means you don't have to worry about accidentally resting your palm on the trackpad as you draw.

What's new in Inklet

Version 2.1.1:
  • Trackpad nudging when inking starts and stops is now a lot more reliable. It’s a pretty great experience, and may soon be the default for Force Touch trackpads.
  • A small area of the trackpad that was previously unresponsive when drawing is now fixed.
  • Inklet preferences do a better job of noticing trackpad features and detecting when they connect or disconnect.
  • Performance is very subtly improved while a pen stroke is active.

Inklet installed and activated easily enough. I could get a "workspace" and move it around and resize it, but I could never get it to accept any input, despite trying a number of applications. However, I'll admit I didn't try very long, since the developer's draconian trial limitations do not encourage experimentation. I get to use the workspace less than a minute before receiving a popup that makes me wait 20 seconds before continuing? That is bizarre, irritating, and displays a total lack of respect for prospective customers. Set a total limit of 15-30 days, or even a limit of 30-60 minutes before forcing a restart of the program, but the current mechanism is ludicrous.

Puts up a popup often, without seeming to do anything.

Avoid this software. It's not very useful, except for slowing down your entire machine. My Macbook Pro was running really slow for weeks, then I read an article about removing unneeded Login Items. The instant I removed it, my machine was much more responsive. Then when I restarted, the computer was slow again. Inklet had reinstalled itself into Login Items! You need to uncheck the option in Inklet preferences.

Just played with the demo. Works fine with 2011 MBP running Lion. Any tablet/touchscreen pen works I just used the one for my phone. Was able to detect pressure etc. Quite intuitive I figured out how to expand and move the edit area with ease (2 fingers) Still thinking about buying it

I have a MacBook, running Snow Leopard. Tried demo version of Inklet. I must be missing something. When I try to start it, while using Illustrator or other compatible program, I get the error message: Cannot properly start Inklet. No multitouch device detected. Make sure your hardware is compatible. Contact info@tenonedesign.com with any questions. I just deleted it. I'm gonna buy a small Wacom for fifty bucks.

To the Developer: Your trial is preposterous. 40 seconds use before it freezes for 20 seconds is not enough time to try to get this thing to work. You must change the demo type otherwise people will give up in frustration as I have. What I have observed so far is that the handwriting recognition simply failed to work for me at all - only the cursor moves on the Ink tablet with no marks of any kind. I tried this about 10 times before I gave up. Another problem is that the cursor is very jerky. For example just setting the Pogo Sketch down on the trackpad moves the cursor out of the writing area. Once it is down the movement is unpredictable and erratic because every time the Pogo looses contact with trackpad the mouse jumps to a different area. PS Inklet's "Send Feedback" menu option does not do anything from what I can see.

PPS I did find the Feedback window after all. It opens behind all the others that are in use.

Hmmm. $20 for the software and $15 for a Pogo Stylus, when you can get a Bamboo Pen tablet for $50. Unless you're really needing to eliminate the external tablet, the Wacom probably has far more sensitivity and features.
