Samsung updates S Pen SDK to spread love for Galaxy Note II features

Jon Fingas , @jonfingas

Owners of the original Galaxy Note won't have to look on the Galaxy Note II with complete envy. Samsung has updated the S Pen SDK to 2.2, letting developers' apps respond to a hovering stylus with Note II-style tricks. More brushes, effects, fills and fonts also join the mix, although not every new tweak is finding its way back to the first-run Note: pulling out the S Pen won't trigger app features without a Note II or Galaxy Note 10.1 involved. Even so, what's in the new SDK could be the key to a more sophisticated (and very hands-off) S Pen ecosystem. You'll find the tools to make it happen at the source link.
