Anyone with a Magic Trackpad and Inklet/PogoSketch?

I just downloaded Inklet 1.3 update which is supposed to have (limited) support for the Magic Trackpad, but it isn't working for me.

The TenOneDesign developer blog hasn't been posted to since the update, nor any new tweets, and I can't find any other references on Google. Submitted a report yesterday to the developer.

I had 'tap to click' selected in my Magic Trackpad preferences, thought that could be affecting Inklet, but still no use after deselecting that option.

Anyone using Inklet 1.3 on a Magic Trackpad?

Just got an email from the developer.
Inklet 1.3 recognizes an internal trackpad if one is present, and Magic Trackpad if no internal trackpad exists.

So basically, Inklet/Magic Trackpad doesn't work on a MacBook/Macbook Pro, but should work with desktop Macs, with limited sensitivity function.
Maybe some day.

Inklet 1.3.1 is now available for download, new today. Not much in the way of Help files or support. There isn't even a post on the developer's blog.

I couldn't get 1.3.1 it to work with my Magic Trackpad, couldn't figure it out, and by accident hit my Pogo on my Magic Mouse- I was drawing... with a Pogo, on my Magic Mouse.
So I disconnected the Magic Mouse, and viola! Drawing with the Magic Trackpad!
I'm not getting pressure sensitivity, but I can draw with almost no pressure on the Magic Trackpad.

*To get Inklet to work with Magic Trackpad on a MacBook or MacBook Pro, you have to select 'Prioritize External Trackpads' in the 'General' Inklet preferences. This also disables the MacBook trackpad in Inklet. I had to use the keyboard sequence to activate Inklet/set workspace with the Magic Trackpad, as opposed to normally using the MacBook 'tap top left corner to activate Inklet workspace'. No response at all tapping the (any) corner of the Magic Trackpad.

Still have to do some goofing around, but it is nice to hold the trackpad in my hand, the way you would hold a small sketchbook, without the bulk and wires of a Wacom tablet.

Inklet also has a preference for 'finger', so you don't need a Pogo/stylus.
