Samsung opens up S Pen SDK to devs
Strong sales of the Samsung Galaxy S II have fueled Samsung’s phone division success and as the demand persists the Korean company has revised its 2011 sales forecast upwards. Apart from the Galaxy S II, the company is also basing its more optimistic estimate on expectations for sales of 2 million units of the Samsung Galaxy Note, the 5.3-inch powerhouse which sits between a phone and a tablet.
Now, it’s definitely not a device for the mass user, but creatives (and we don’t mean baristas) can make great use of the added space. And now, Samsung has released the SDK for its S Pen stylus for the Galaxy Note. This opens the door for Android developers to add support for the S Pen in their applications. The SDK weighs 2.43MB and comes with four major features:
- CanvasView : basic background for drawing,
- Pen Setting Popup : a pop-up panel for adjusting the width, opacity and line color,
- Eraser Setting Popup : Panel for adjusting width for eraser,
- Undo/Redo : Enable undo/redo previous draw.
