Does it support standard Mavericks Gestures like three finger swipes for Mission Control?
- Asked by Vincent P
The Short answer is NO!
I bought this to replace my MagicPad because the physical clicker on the The Short answer is NO!
I bought this to replace my MagicPad because the physical clicker on the Magic Pad starts getting stuck in the clicked state every couple months and I end up buying 4 of them per year at $70/pop. Ouch. Sadly the gestures on this wacom thing are terrible.
So, you can do some of the normal actions you'd expect, but the gestures are different. For instance:
Dragging a window: 3 fingered swipe instead of Apple's Click and drag method. Apple's method is remarkably more natural.
Swiping through spaces: 4 fingered swipe (similar to Apple's, but Apple lets you use 3 also, and I prefer that, so again they win).
Selecting Text: again a 3 fingered clunky gesture that is not precise or repeatable. Its downright hard to do on this Wacom.
The thumb and three fingered gesture to explode the desktop or launch mission control: Not easily repeatable on wacom- sloppy recognition, but I never had a problem on Magic Pad.
IMPORTANT: When you use a Magic pad you get these native animations- like that little bounce when you hit the bottom or top of a web page after scrolling fast. Also when swiping between spaces and mission control windows you have a lot more control than with the wacom. This was perhaps the most disappointing thing- you don't notice these details until they are gone. The wacom makes OS X feel 15 years old. …

do you still need a trackpad?

I don't believe it is meant to be used in place of a trackpad, although you could use it that way... I don't believe it is meant to be used in place of a trackpad, although you could use it that way... People generally use these pads for illustration and drawing with Illustrator, Photoshop and the like. It is a specialized graphics tool. I usually use this tool along with the regular Mac mouse. …

Does this support all the gestures the normal Macbook touchpad does? Like 4 fingers up etc.?
- Asked by Oscar E
In theory yes, it has most of the gestures that OS X offers. However, the tablet isn't using OS X's In theory yes, it has most of the gestures that OS X offers. However, the tablet isn't using OS X's gesture recognition abilities, so you shouldn't expect them to be as easy to use as on a Trackpad. For example, I have a poor 50% chance to successfully 'tap with three fingers to look up the word' on the tablet, while I have no trouble doing the same on the trackpad. I can creatively combine gestures on a trackpad, like taping and holding a file, then swiping with another three fingers to drop that file on another fullscreen app, etc. This is barely possible to do on the tablet, as the result will be a bit unpredictable. …

Does it work with ipad?
- Asked by Francisco P from Cap Fed
This will not work with an iPad, because it was designed to be used on Mac OS X and not iOS. Same g This will not work with an iPad, because it was designed to be used on Mac OS X and not iOS. Same goes with most other tablets of this type.
What you are looking for is actually a Capacitive Stylus, which will work with any other tablets that are like the iPad and not the Wacom. The Apple Online Store does have one, called "Pencil by FiftyThree." There's also the (Disney/Marvel) Creativity Studio Deluxe Stylus, which also is designed for iPads. All three are under the "Toys and Hobbies" Section.
If you're looking for Keyboards that will work with an iPad, you may want to go to "Shop iPad" then click on "Accessories." …
