Wacom Inkling

PC Magazine
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Wacom Inkling is a nifty idea and very enjoyable to work with, although it's best as a set-it-and-forget-it device for capturing rough sketches, rather than a precision tool for professional artists.
  • Pros: Novel design really works. Lots of fun to use. Slick, self-contained charging case. Compatible with PCs and Macs. Exports to a wide variety of formats. Very easy to use in practice.
  • Cons: Not quite accurate enough for very precise drawings. A bit expensive as a rough concepting tool. The included Sketch Manager software works but is overly obtuse.

Wacom Inkling review

theverge.com
28 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Check out the desk of your average graphics designer and you'll most likely find a Wacom tablet plugged into their computer, likely the Bamboo or — if they have the budget — a Cintiq. These tablets are great for precision editing, but you've got to be at a computer to use them.
  • Pros: Excellent all-in-one carrying case design, Layering capabilities for designers, Compatible with any piece of paper
  • Cons: Sketch Manager software is unintuitive and poorly designed, Pen can be uncomfortable, Easy to miss strokes unintentionally due to hand placement

Tech2
3 April 2013
  • Summary: The Inkling is a new category of device. Unlike traditional tablets, you can’t see what you’re drawing on screen as you draw it, but you can use the Inkling anywhere at any time with just an ordinary sheet of paper.

Wacom Inkling

MacWorld
18 March 2012
  • Excerpt: After seeing impressive preview footage of the Wacom Inkling, we were very keen to get our hands on it. A tool that enables you to sketch directly to paper with a ballpoint pen, then upload the results to your Mac for editing? Sweet.
  • Pros: Use a real pen to draw with; upload in bitmap or vector format to supported programs
  • Cons: Early users have reported layer shifting issues and occasional export glitches
