About Astropad

Built by former Apple engineers

We were inspired by the original Macintosh and early creative apps like MacPaint that opened up new possibilities. Our logo is a play on the Dogcow and a testament to the idea of the computer as a “Bicycle for your mind”.

In the post-PC era apps have become less powerful gadgets and professional creative tools have been under-developed. Starting with Astropad, we are on a journey to change that and re-define the drawing tablet.

We met at Apple in 2007 where Matt worked on QuickTime and Giovanni on Mac OS X. As ex-Apple engineers we are using our experience to build professional creative tools that work across your Mac, iPad and iPhone. We have ambitious plans for Astropad but we need your help.

Founders Matt Ronge and Giovanni Donelli
