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.

Brian Rood

I have to say, Astropad is such a gem.

I had invested in an iPad and didn’t have the funds to also have a huge Wacom tablet. I love the way Astropad works for me.

Carra Skyes

No lag, smooth, and every artist’s dream come true!

I've tried everything out there, from Wacom Cintiq to Mac OS Sidecar. Nothing came close to what you have achieved!
