Introducing Air Stylus for Galaxy Note

We just released a new Android app yesterday: Air Stylus for Galaxy Note. 

Working with a host app on your Mac, Air Stylus turns your Galaxy Note into a pressure-sensitive second screen so you can paint directly into your computer-based creative software like Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Motion, or SketchBook.

“One simple way to get some extra mileage out of an old tablet is to turn it into a dedicated PC monitor. Even with just 7-inch tablet, you can use the extra screen to keep an eye on instant messages, email, or social networks. If you’re working with photos, video or music, the second screen could even serve as a dedicated space for toolbars. It’s also an easy second screen to pack up and take with you.

I suggest Air Display.”

It’s hard to go wrong with Air Display—the low price, intuitive interface, and wide range of compatibility make it appealing to a wide audience.”

“As more and more of us have begun to embrace this whole “cloud” thing, we’ve gotten pretty loose with how share files with one another—and how we access our own files. Because right now, more often than not, there’s another entity of some sort serving as the go-between in the whole process. But that may be coming to an end, if Portland’s Avatron has their way.”

Avatron is hoping that their prototype–currently about to close its Kickstarter campaign–will trigger a fundamental shift in the cloud storage space.

Everydisk on Kickstarter

Thanks, Kickstarter supporters! Our Everydisk project has reached 50% of its goal. But we only have 10 days left in the campaign, so if you know anybody who might be interested in backing the development of direct, secure, easy-to-use access to remote files, please send them a link to Everydisk. (Currently, we have everydisk.com pointing to the Kickstarter page.)

10 days: the tension is palpable here. It took us 20 days to get to 50%, so we need to double the pace to reach 100% in 10 more days. But with your help, we can do it!

“The big selling point behind Everydisk is its unlimited NAS-like storage. You get access to your entire disk, not just a special folder, the way you would with Dropbox and not just a standalone drive, as you would with PogoPlug or Transporter. According to the Avatron team, Everydisk creates its own secure tunnel between your computer and your access point, using Diffie-Hellman key exchange, offering you a way to confidently grab the materials you need.”
