The app has high compatibility with the S Pen for Galaxy devices,  taking advantage of features such as pen sensitivity and Air actions. Air actions allow you to quickly switch tools without touching the screen simply by moving the stylus, so you can enjoy a smooth drawing experience with efficient gesture shortcuts. If you don’t have an S Pen, you can use the app by connecting with a Wacom Intuos pen tablet or Wacom One LCD tablet.

“Clip Studio Paint for Galaxy" is also compatible with Celsys' one-handed shortcut device “Clip Studio Tabmate". The Clip Studio Tabmate can be used with Galaxy devices to perform frequently used operations with the press of a button, so artists can more comfortably create illustrations, comics, and animations.

We plan to hold an international illustration contest this September to celebrate the launch of Clip Studio Paint for Galaxy.  Contest information will be released on our official website and social media.
