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

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
What's New
Version 1.2:
  • The last release (1.1) focused on improving the drawing experience in Inklet. This meant smoother lines, less lag, and more accuracy. 1.2 maintains these enhancements, but also makes it easier to navigating around the computer. Here's the full rundown of new features:
  • Full multi-monitor support: use the normal two-finger pan gesture to move your workspace over to an external display. The Inklet workspace will seamlessly work with any monitor configuration. Great for using an external monitor with your MacBook Pro.
  • Navigation-focused release: lots of little tweaks that make Inklet easier to use while selecting items and using Finder. New navigation preferences pane.
  • New anti-jitter algorithm: inklet helps you be more precise when selecting items. Jitter reduction makes working with larger workspaces even easier. For extra smooth operation, choose 'advanced jitter reduction' from the Inklet navigation 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

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.

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.

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.

"No multitouch device detected".. says Inklet when I try to launch it on my:
Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz

How come ? What kind of MacBook does one need to run this ?
