Highly recommended

Peripheral input devices 

As a drawing and painting app, Fresco has been optimized for use with a stylus. We recommend using pressure sensitive tablets and styluses (such as Wacom tablets or Surface pen). For the most realistic drawing, experience Fresco’s full drawing and painting capabilities with Wacom’s pressure sensitive pen displays and tablets such as Wacom MobileStudio Pro and Wacom Intuos.
