Wacom Ink SDK for devices
Wacom Ink SDK for devices allows you to integrate Wacom and third-party inking devices into your applications. The Common Device Library (CDL) SDK currently supports:
- Wacom Smartpads (Folio, Slate)
- Intuos Pro Paper Edition
- Apple pencil on iPad Pro.
Future releases will add support for additional Wacom devices, as well as inking devices from other vendors.
Platform-specific packages are also available for iOS, Android, Windows, UWP/Desktop, and Web, depending on the device.
The Common Device Library (CDL) SDK within Wacom Ink Connectivity is designed as one library that can handle different types of pen or touch input. The advantages of this approach include:
- Less implementation effort for developers: Integration of only one library, support for several pen input devices
- The flexibility to include support for non-Wacom devices in your applications
- The freedom to take full advantage of Wacom Ink Technologies to provide a high quality front-end and UI through optional receipt of RAW data from the device, without sacrificing the original data for internal/back-end usage i.e. it can deliver ink data but also retain raw pen data to be used in other ways.
- Easy access to the Wacom Ink technology ecosystem through smooth integration of Wacom ink technology.

Feel Multi-touch APIs
These APIs enable you to build applications that utilize the powerful finger detection and location capabilities of Wacom touch tablets. This stream of finger information can be used to create unique application features, including custom gestures or direct on screen manipulation.
Bluetooth Stylus SDK
This input SDK enables discovery of and connection to stylus devices, and the receipt of raw pressure and button state data. It also includes functionality to enable Touch Rejection, so that users can maintain a natural handwriting position without the display reacting to unintentional touches.
