Free Companion App Allows Artists to Focus on Their Work

Corel has announced the release of a new app that allows users to control the Painter 12 desktop with an iPad. Cinco is a companion app that gives users creative control of the desktop program. Cinco says that it integrates seamlessly into the Painter user’s workflow and allows them to work faster by quickly accessing the most used tools with the tap of a finger. The app can be calibrated to the best hand position where each finger represents a different tool, brush, media or command of the user’s choice.

Using the left or right hand, the Cinco interface can be adjusted to the most comfortable hand and finger placement. It works alongside pen tablets while tapping commands on the iPad, so users can keep their eyes on their work

The app can be customised to work with multiple palettes, tools and commands including adding layers, pulling up the color wheel or undoing brush strokes  A Wi-Fi connection, allows the user to pair the desktop and iPad and use an authentication code for a secure connection.

“Artists want to spend as much time as they can focusing on their work and not on searching for brushes, buttons or obscure hot keys,” said Andy Church, Senior Product Manager for Corel Painter. “What’s exciting about Corel Cinco is its unique handiness. It aims to keep the focus on the art and maintain the creative flow. You no longer need to take your eyes off the art to make selections or changes to Painter.”

Cinco is available as a free English iPad (iOS 5.0.1 and higher) app for a limited time only in selected Apple App Stores worldwide. Users will also need Painter 12.2 (Windows or Mac version) with the latest updates installed and an internet connection with Wi-Fi capabilities.
