WILL™: Handwriting goes truly digital.

Even in our connected world, handwriting is the most intuitive way for people to create, collaborate, take notes and prove their identity. That’s why the market for stylus or digital pen-enabled devices is booming. It’s also creating a wave of new digital ink content. And that’s where you come in.

  • Why Digital Ink?

    Demand for apps that turn digital pen strokes into beautiful digital handwriting with a truly natural feel is growing fast. It’s a multimillion-dollar development opportunity, limited only by your imagination. And WILL™ is your secret success weapon.

  • What is WILL™?

    The Wacom Ink Layer Language or WILL™ uses algorithms to convert raw digital pen data into stunning digital ink on any device, and stores it in the .will file format. Wacom’s WILL™ SDKs leverage this technology to make digital ink app building easy.
