Astropad Studio is our new, flagship edition of Astropad. Over the past two years, we’ve learned a ton about what professional creatives are looking for from a graphics tablet. We’ve taken that feedback and built Astropad Studio to go beyond a traditional graphics tablet. Check out our demo video:
We also invented a new interaction method we call Magic Gestures, check it out:
Let us know what you think! Happy to answer any questions.

@mronge killer videos, and a really impressive step forward from astropad into studio. Super stoked for you and your team.

@mronge So this will be a continuously developed product as with a CC subscription? Going to give it a try today.

@mronge So could you give me an example of what to expect?

@rijnbeek Sure, two updates we have planned are custom pressure curves and a stroke stabilization

@mronge Good to know, I'll give it a whirl tomorrow. Thanks for the feedback.

@mronge I am stretching it here but will this only ever be compatible with an iPad? Really want to replace my Wacom tablet. This app is probably one of the main reasons I'd ever buy an iPad Pro, but don't think I can justify the price point of an iPad Pro, haha.

@j_ennychu we're focusing on iPad Pro with Astropad Studio. For other iPads (and 3rd party styluses) I recommend checking out Astropad Standard: http://astropad.com/standard/ it's $30 on the App Store. Hope that helps!

@mronge reading this reply helped me feel better about you releasing a separate version with a subscription. i had purchased standard when you first released it. great app, worth the $30. but when i saw this new version it ticked me off. but reading you say that the benefits of upgrading are really more beneficial to ipad pro users, it made a little more sense and am a happy user again.

@kleerkoat we are also 100% committed to Astropad Standard. They serve different customers and we'll be updating both of them on a regular basis! Hope that helps

@mronge excellent, appreciate the reply. obviously you would like to have users migrate but maybe other user's nasty reviews could be quelled with a little note mentioning something along the lines of your comment in the app description. i don't like seeing good devs get trashed on the AppStore undeservingly. thanks again.

Loving the hell out of Astropad and this studio update! I was honestly questioning my iPad Pro before Astropad
