Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid Review: Android Graphic Tablet Tries To Do Too Much

It’s a slow day today, so we just have this. Check it out.

Sadly, the portable Android experience is far less satisfactory. Connectivity and portability problems Despite now being a year old, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is serviceable enough on the Hybrid, and Wacoms pressure-sensitivity integration into apps like SketchBook Pro makes it easy enough to dive into a drawing or a sketch. But the actual management of these sketchbooksand sending them off to your computerproved much more difficult. On a Mac, the Companion Hybrid needs Wacoms traditional driver software to function as a display tablet, but it also requires Android File Transfer for moving documents back and forth. The software isn’t functionally that bad, but third party apps on the Hybrid occasionally have trouble saving to a place that’s easily accessible via Android File Transfer. I eventually got around it by using Dropbox for those apps, but that may not be ideal.
