Pressure-sensitive stylus support for iPad

We added support for three of the most popular pressure-sensitive styli in this version of Photoshop Touch: the Pogo Connect, Jot Touch and JaJa Stylus. Using the special capabilities of these devices, users can draw, paint and retouch their work in Photoshop Touch with a more natural look and feel. At this time, these styli support iOS only. We’ve also improved our brushing engine to make smoother strokes with or without a special stylus.

Adobe Photoshop Touch is available on the App Store for $9.99. [Direct Link]

This is not on the front page, but Will.i.am's piece 'O crap is?? :confused:

To be fair, while this update is neat, and some professionals will appreciate it (a costly Wacom Cintiq just got less tempting!)... it’s not really something that changes my life.

The Will.i.am contraption, on the other hand, has made me decide to dig a deep hole and crawl to the bottom of it.

What I would like next is that the iOS app interfaces with the Mac Applications of Photoshop and Illustrator so that I can use the iPad/iPodt as a drawing tablet with my Mac. Frankly the iOS is a crippled operating system since it doesn't let me work my way with my data. Instead of being data centric (what matters) it is instead App centric which is insane. My data is my work. The Apps are just tools. By making the iOS App centric Apple gets in my way of doing real work and makes the iOS devices into games and toys when they could be so much more.

Yep. The biggest thing missing from the iPad is a unified file system. It's crazy that every app developer has to use the Dropbox API for example to sync data, there's already a Dropbox app, let everyone hook into it. Devs having to constantly reinvent the wheel is taking them away from adding extra features to their apps.

That "Open in" crap is such a half-arsed measure to try and combat this glaring omission.

This is what I want! Make this Wacom!

I don't think the electromagnetic signal would make it all the way through the iPad and back.

They aren't really the same thing. The ipad version is quite limited in what it can handle, and you have nowhere near the same amount of drawing space. I don't see the two as being really comparable. What I like about the idea of drawing on an ipad is that getting away from the desk feels a little less restrictive when it comes to rough concepting. With something like that, the resolution limits wouldn't bother me so much. Otherwise there's no way I'm pushing 10k files through photoshop touch, and the ipad wouldn't support other software I'd need anyway. I avoided the cintiq due to the combination of price and quality control complaints. I've noticed Wacom go downhill on a hardware level over the past few years, so I really don't want to see how their most expensive options hold up. It's not like I never upgrade. I just have to stagger things at times, so having a $2500 item break at the wrong time would be annoying.
