    Air Stylus for Galaxy Note is the best way to use your tablet as a wireless, interactive display tablet for the creative software on your Mac or PC.

    Like the iPad version (released in June), Air Stylus for Galaxy Note creates a pressure sensitive second screen for your computer so you can draw or paint into software like Photoshop, Aperture, and Lightroom.

    Unlike the iPad, every Samsung Galaxy Note ships with pressure sensitivity built into the screen, and includes a stylus that makes it an excellent companion for Air Stylus.

    The easiest way to explain how well Air Stylus for Galaxy Note integrates with the computer is to show you a 55 second video we made:

    Avatron has been successfully growing via sales of our iOS apps, but with built-in pressure sensitivity and included S Pen, the Galaxy Note fits Air Stylus too well to for us to pass up.

    We do not envision Air Stylus as a replacement for an interactive pen tablet (e.g. Wacom Cintiq), but more as a way for artists to get a natural, pen-to-paper drawing experience for a fraction of the cost.

    At $14.99, Air Stylus is expensive by Google Play standards, but even the least expensive pen tablet costs 20x more.

    The iPad version costs a little more, but is selling pretty well in spite of the price.

    This looks great, i sell my illustrations on stock sites and every day use wacom for this. But here is one problem, you need free trial for this app, and screen on my note 3 is slippery, not like paper.
    But price is ok, chipest (good) table with screen is too much?

    iGameR,

    You're right that the screens have a much different feel than paper. We at Avatron are all big fans of the Wacom products.

    We're really aiming this app at people who want to draw more naturally than with a mouse but might not want to carry around (or invest in) another device.

    We're trying to figure out the best way to do a free trial. Google offers a 15 minute refund policy:
    https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/2844909?hl=en

    If you're going to try that with Air Stylus, the best way would be to go download the host app first and get your computer all ready to go before you purchase Air Stylus (which starts the 15 minute timer).

    Here's the download link: http://downloads.avatron.com/AirDisplayInstaller.zip

    The Air Stylus host app is the same one we use for our Air Display app. Install that, restart your Mac, then get on your Galaxy Note and buy Air Stylus. Once it's installed, tap to launch it, then click [ Connect ] from the Air Display menu on your computer and have fun!

    If you like it, it's yours. If it doesn't work out, follow the Google Play instructions above to uninstall the app and request your refund.

    One other cool thing about Air Stylus is that even if you don't want to use it for drawing, it still turns your Galaxy Note into a wireless, touch sensitive extra screen for your computer.

    Thanks again for your feedback.
