    Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro and ArtRage??? Anyone thinking of getting this?

    Is this tablet a viable option for the ArtRage user?

    Well...it looks pretty good. I'm sure ArtRage would be great on it...whenever it comes out for Android.

    What I heard from Android Police (a well-known source for all things Android) is that Lenovo's a little slow on the uptake with getting Android system updates out. (And with Android L coming soon...)

    At this point I'm personally only interested in something you could draw and paint on like a Cintiq and had that whole functionality. Get that happening and I would definitely be looking closer.

    Galaxy Note!

    I have had the Galaxy Note 10.1 a couple of years now and I plan to buy the big brother Galaxy Note 12.2 nex week. The screen is 12.2 inches 2560 x 1600 px, and has Wacom pressure tech with 1024 pressure levels. I use a Wacom stylus and the whole thing works just great. At last there is one good sketch, draw and paint program for Android, that is SketchBook. I rather use the Note, not my iPad Air since the iPad Air (9.7 inches, 2048 x 1536 px) does not have the pressure sensitive screen. There are Bluetooth styluses that makes a workaround to get the iPad react something like pressure sensitive. I think it is far away from the feeling that I get from the Wacom stylus on my Note. Note is by far better. But, Microsoft released the Surface Pro 3 this autumn.

    The Microsoft Surface Pro 3, 12 inches screen size 2160 x 1440. It is the closest you can come to a Wacom Cinitq. I have tested Surface 3 and it is just great, exept a bit pricy. But anyhow half the price of a Cintiq. Best part of the Surface 3 is the pressure N-trig sentitive screen. The screen is that thin that the stylus actually touches the very point where the tip of the stylus hits. On both the iPad and Note the glass is a little distance from the "canvas", it is therefore a little hard to be precise. It does not bother me much, but the Surface 3 is better of course. The N-trig 256 levels of pressure is just as good as the 1024 as I find it. I can't really telle the difference.

    So I recommend the Galaxy Note 12.2 because of the Wacom driven screen and the best screen resolution. It also has a reasonable price. The iPad some good software, among them ArtRage, but no pressure sensitivity and also the smallest screen and lowest resolution. The Surface Pro 3 is by far the best "artis tablet" since you can run all Windows art programs on it, but a bit pricey as I said.

    The software on Android is a bit limited, but there is SketchBook, Infinite Painter, Corel Painter Mobile and some more. Soon also ArtRage. I hope and wait! and wait! ...and wait! ...and wait!

    What useful information, Henry. Thanks. That's all practical artist information, especially about the distance of the stylus tip to the picture. I hadn't even thought about that but it would matter.

    Technology and cost is catching up to where I'm getting ready to jump in somewhere and I would prefer to not spend an arm and a leg until I know I'll be comfortable with it and it's the best deal for the price.

    Come on ArtRage!!! Go Go Go!!!!!!!

    Ahora estoy pintando en una Samsung, cuya pantalla de 11" se puede separar del teclado, y se convierte en una eficiente y cómoda Tablet. Viene con un lápiz digitalizador incluído, muy sensible. OS Windows 8.

    Artflow

    If you haven't tried it already, I recommend Artflow for android. I found it better than sketchbook because of the brush selection (lots of brushes after in-app purchase) and brush settings as well as the more responsive and intuitive interface. It's no ArtRage, but I found it a good replacement for sketchbook pro. It also seems to be updated more frequently.

    I am beta testing Infinite Painter 4. It is just great, much better than Artflow, and yes, Artflow is good, but nothing compared to Infinite Painter 4. IP4 got a lot of good brushes, even good looking watercolor, perspective grids and rulers, a good interface and really all you can ask for.

    Still I prefer SketcBook because of the best interface there is, even a little better than the desktop version. All brushes are customizable. The workflow is the best I know of because of the same GUI and the same brush engine in both the app and the desktop version. It is easy to do sketching on my Note and send it to the desktop SketchBook for editing.

    I hope Artrage Android will have the same possibilties as SketchBook when it is released...
