Editors’ Notes

Astropad Studio transforms our iPad Pro into the ultimate graphics tablet for our Mac, and we’re astonished by its speed and versatility. Lag-free wireless connectivity, customizable Apple Pencil shortcuts, compatibility with all of our design and illustration apps—sometimes we wonder how we got along without it. Now we spend less time leaping technical hurdles and more time creating cool stuff.

My favorite app

I have hundreds of apps. Some for film making, some for games, some for productivity. This one is the one that truly transforms my iPad into another tool. I don’t know why apple didn’t build these tools in, but Astropad certainly covered it when it comes to working with Apple Pencil in graphic programs. There is no comparison to other apps that share or mirror screens and allow for pen input. This one is in its own league. Its great that they are inventing new hardware to allow for second screen use. If you use this regularly then Studio Annual is helpful but not needed to get most benefits. My only improvement request would be a way to enable apple pencils (which are the best stylus IMHO) to have an optional hover feature so you can have the curser move without making contact. But without hacking them, thats on apple to figure out. And for all I know maybe that feature exists, I just haven’t seen it yet. Bravo to this app!

Can’t own/buy this app - pay monthly

With so many great painting apps out there that you can actually *buy* it always amazes me how these subscription apps stay in business. This app costs $12 per month, every month. It’s like you’re automatically buying a new app every month. Just do the math, how many subscription apps can you afford? Say you subscribe to 5 apps at $10, that’s $50 per month! If that’s your spending limit that means you can’t buy any more new apps unless you stop subscription to one of the existing apps. But then you lose that app. All the money you paid them - gone! Subscription model for apps just doesn’t work for the consumers. I will only subscribe to services or content providers. But subscribe to a product? Never. Put a price on it. $50, $80, whatever, if it’s worth it we’ll buy it. But the subscription model “hides” the costs making it seem less expensive. Well let me “unhide” it. If you use this app for 5 years you will pay $400. And even then if you stop paying you lose it. Does it worth it? It might be to some people. I buy a lot of music apps, if even 10% of them were subscription based I would be paying $1,000 each month.

Some of the painting apps I *bought* and enjoy are: Procreate, Affinity Photo, SketchBook (before it went free). If they make the next version of these apps, I’ll happily pay again. But when I’m ready. Not automatically. I want to be in control of my spendings. This month I’m dropping $100 on apps next few months could be zero.
