Wacom Notes for Windows
If you are an aspiring author or designer, you'll love using the Wacom Notes software for note-taking. It's a powerful tool for managing your handwritten notes and can even work as a whiteboard for your presentations. Unlike traditional paper-based note-taking, you can use the digital version of your notes to create and manage your entire workflow. And because it works with Windows operating systems, you can get it absolutely free, by visiting the developer's website.
Aside from the powerful features and a reasonably affordable price tag, the tablet has a battery-free Pro Pen 2 stylus with 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity. The tablet is a bit hefty, though, and the absence of built-in shortcut keys makes it more difficult to multitask. However, you can add a Wacom ExpressKey remote for more convenient operation. And if you don't want to spend so much, you can also purchase additional keyboards for the iPad.
The tablet also supports PDF documents and allows you to annotate them in a variety of ways. It supports over 20 file formats and lets you sketch on documents. You can switch between different interfaces, take screenshots with a swipe, and screencast your work to a third-party app. The pen is also compatible with Wacom's Evernote software. If you're a serious artist, you can use the Wacom Intuos pens to take notes and create professional-quality presentations.
