Mobile Desktop Center

Wacom Mobile Center is a Mobile Mode application for your Cintiq Companion Hybrid that allows you to change settings, use Android apps, register and update your system, and select options for file management. You can also access product support, and product-related websites. The items on the left side of the Wacom Mobile Center screen allow open associated options on the right side of the screen.

If your Cintiq is connected to your computer and then disconnected, the Cintiq will switch to Mobile mode.
