    I know it's not pressure sensitive like a wacom, but this app seemed to be a good way for me to extend my laptop real estate, but more importantly to use it to directly input into an Adobe Illustrator window. Question is, has anyone used it this way, and does it work okay?

    I've thought about using a native iPad drawing app to draw and then somehow to import it into the mac, but this method seems the easiest without having to send files over.

    Just a bit jaded about trusting iTunes reviews, so wanted to ask you design gurus here.

    I use the Inkpad app on iPad and Dropbox to transfer vector drawings to my MBP. When transferring out of Inkpad through Dropbox you have a choice of five file types including the native Inkpad format and svg for vectors. I use Inkscape on my Mac, not AI, and have no trouble opening an Inkpad svg file. Inkscape will not open the native Inkpad format.

    Unfortunately, I have not been able to transfer Inkscape svg files to iPad and open in Inkpad. I need to keep experimenting with that!

    Yeah, file transfers are definitely a pain... hence my original question. Thanks though!
