Accepted Solution

Digitized Pen

I am trying to use the pen as an input device for sending e-mails and other usages. I saw a demo on lenovo where they were using Notes Mobile and Gmail. He was writing all over the screen. That is why I purchased the tablet however the digitized pen is not available as an input device in settings. Am I missing something or  is there a driver or additional software that I need to purchase.

 

Thanks

Brian

Re: Digitized Pen

You need to download one more app: MyScrypt Stylus from the Lenovo Store.

 

Then you only need to select it from the keyboard selector on the status bar whenever the keyboard pops up

Re: Digitized Pen

So let me get this straight - the only way to use the digitzer pen on this $400 tablet is to download an extra $5 app?

To use it well and be satisfied it may cost more than one app. Smiley Wink

No; there are several apps, free and otherwise, that use the pen for input.  Try Quill ($1.00), WritePad Stylus (free and supplied by Lenovo), ezPDF, LectureNotes, Papyrus Beta.
