    Using IPad as a Painting Tablet on Mac Computer

    Hi there

    Is there any way of linking an IPad 2 to a Mac Computer to use it as a Tablet for painting Similar to a Wacom type tablet? Any advice would greatly appreciated.

    I don't have an iPad but I gather some people have had some success doing this using 'Air Display' to make the connection between pad and Mac.
    Try Googgling; iPad as tablet for Mac and see what you can find out.

    I would note that any success in doing this is still probably not going to be as good as getting "the real thing". A lack of pressure sensitivity is the first thing that comes to mind...
    Still, keep us posted as to how it goes.
