Blazing fast & crystal clear

Creating Astropad required innovative new technology we call Liquid. The result is stunning image quality and responsiveness.

Liquid features color corrected output and retina resolution. What you see on your iPad is the same as on your Mac.

And our built-in Velocity Control analyzes network conditions dozens of times per second to balance image quality and latency. So whether you're plugged in or wireless, your iPad will stay highly responsive.

What professional artists are saying about Astropad Studio

Brian Rood

Star Wars Illustrator

@broodone

You've just raised the bar to the next level... When I tell some of my colleagues about this they are going to freak, seriously.

Ben Bishop

Comic Artist

@bishart

For anyone who thinks the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil combo is not a fully capable working machine for comics, design, illustration etc... Astropad Studio just proved you wrong.

Ashley Mary

@ashleymaryart

The best part about Astropad is that it feels like I'm drawing in my sketch book, except my one pen tool is equal to hundreds. It's the most efficient way to get my work done without sacrificing quality.
