Ten One Design has released an updated version of its drawing plug-in, Inklet, adding pressure-sensitive drawing on the new Force Touch trackpad in all Mac drawing apps, including Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture and Illustrator. The new trackpad was introduced by Apple on the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.

This means MacBook owners with the new trackpad will enjoy enhanced, highly-accurate pressure sensitivity when drawing on the trackpad whether drawing with a stylus or with a finger.

Inklet for Mac adds an icon to your menubar that you click when you want to draw on your trackpad in your chosen app … 


Ten One Design said that the Force Touch trackpad plus Inklet allows people to leave their external drawing tablets behind when working away from the office.

“I did a quiet fist-pump when the new trackpads were revealed,” said Peter Skinner, a founder of Ten One Design. “They align perfectly with our vision for Inklet and mobile drawing without the hassle of external tablets.”

The company offers the app only for $24.95, or bundles it with its Pogo stylus for $34.90, both available from tenonedesign.com.

Apple recently updated iMovie to add haptic feedback via the Force Touch trackpad.
