Perfect for Starving Artists, but a little laggy

I believe I paid $4 for this app, which has all the capabilities of any drawing tablet app on the app store, costing a little more than a tenth Duet Display Pro's yearly subscription and a little more than an eighth Astropad's standard feature.
The only problem I have with this app is that it sometimes lags a bit. Fix the slight lag, and you have the best deal on the App Store. I can't get enough of this app.

A nice alternative

Being a hobbyist, it’s hard to find something that works like Astropad studio and duet pro without spending too much money and I am quite happy with this alternative. Maybe you’ll find this to be a bit laggy or something since the other programs are meant to give you good workflow, but if you’re someone who isn’t a professional this is for you. Honestly, it works for me and I like it.

I have had Yam pad for about two years now and it is pretty much a pro drawing tablet for a thousandth of the price. I use this all the time and customer service helped me with my problem quickly and responded promptly. I would definitely recommend.

Works great with my Apple Pencil
