From drawing on a Snapchat pic, to handwriting and taking notes on your iPhone or iPad, our favorite apps and devices are catching up with the growing desire to personalize our digital interactions. The new Bamboo Fineline is the perfect tool to add that personal touch by offering an effortless and natural writing experience on our favorite touchscreen devices.
London, 22nd November 2016 – Our handwriting is our fingerprint on the world. It’s our way of making our mark. And yet our day-to-day digital communications are stuck in Calibri typeface and Power Point SmartArt. Bamboo Fineline is ideal for those who want to up their digital game. The fine tip smart stylus announced today is the third generation Wacom specifically designed for iOS. Paired with a compatible app on a Bluetooth® enabled iPad or iPhone, Bamboo Fineline offers improved precision, palm rejection and pressure sensitivity while the customizable shortcut button allows quick access to a range of functions.
“Bamboo Fineline is the premium pen for the person on your list who transitions from sketch noting, note taking and visual communication at work, to DIY projects like hand lettering, calligraphy or sketching at home,” says Mike Gay, Senior Vice President for Wacom’s consumer products business unit. The stylus has been fully integrated into leading note taking and sketching apps including Goodnotes, ZoomNotes, Autodesk SketchBook, Concepts, and Bamboo Paper. More apps like ArtRage, MediBang Paint, NotesPlus, and Noteshelf are coming soon.
For the Techy Trekker: Bamboo Omni
Wacom’s range of fine tip styli also includes the Bamboo Omni announced earlier this year. This smart pen works on most iOS and Android touchscreen devices and offers a fast, mobile handwriting solution to anyone who wants to personalize their digital work and play. Bamboo Omni is perfect for those who transition from their phones to their tablets over the course of a day, an hour, or a minute. Turn on the Omni and you’re ready to mark up a PDF, add your signature, or add your artistic touch to a WhatsApp, Facebook or SnapChat pic.
