Start Writing

Use the Bamboo Folio or Bamboo Slate pen and start writing on paper. When you're finished with a page of notes, press the button on the smartpad to save them to the Wacom Inkspace app. Don't worry if you forget to press the button before starting a new page. Your notes are timestamped, so you can arrange them later in the Wacom Inkspace app.

Your pen requires a special ink cartridge to work, available for purchase on the Wacom website.
