pretty cool idea and works well
Once you figure out how to configure this app to Painter, it works well. Painter must be the latest 12.2 update, and both painter and iPad must be on the same network - in other words, when I followed the directions given on the support website, I could use the app. It works like a tablet, telling Painter what tools to use, by using the touch screen on the iPad to communicate with your computer. I hope I see where this app is going: that Corel will expand its capabilities to that of a drawing tablet to use with Painter, and if this is going to happen, it will be wonderful. Since this app is a new concept, new tool to use, and new to the app store, I hope people will give it a chance - it really is a handy way to change tools, colors and other things while working in Painter on my computer. Check it out, it's free!
Works great, and a workaround!
Once I was able to figure out how to connect, it works great!!
For those who use Macs, and are having a tough time connecting (in my case, it see's the Service Name, but when selected on the iPad, it just hangs up) there's a workaround. In the System Preferences/Network area, in the Network Name drop down list, select "Create Network" (this can appear in your Wifi list on the upper part of Finder window), create a Computer to Computer network, log into that on your iPad, and you should be able to connect. Maybe this will work also for Microsoft Windows also.
Giving it three stars since I haven't "used" it yet but at least I finally got it to connect. In my case, the problem was due to firewall settings. However, I had to poke around and discover this for myself - there has been no help of any kind from Corel.
I won't get into details since there are many variations of firewalls out there. However, I'll say that you need to be sure your FW is configured to 'learn' new attempted connections. That solved the connection problem for me. Now I have to see how usefull the app is by using it for a while.
