Free Companion App Allows Artists to Focus on Their Work

Maidenhead, UK - Wednesday 11 July, 2012 - Corel today announced the release of Corel Cinco for Painter, a new companion app that gives users complete creative control of the Painter 12 desktop with an iPad. Cinco integrates seamlessly into the Painter user's workflow and allows them to work faster by quickly accessing their favorite and most used tools with the tap of a finger. Completely customisable, Corel Cinco can be calibrated to the best hand position where each finger represents a different tool, brush, media or command of the user's choice.
