Astropad Turns Your iPad Into a Drawing Tablet

vdStj7_9iQUdZi1kdHCKfJylNOh2CV4Lpa3ssxg9Aew

In the This Should Have Been a Thing All Along category, two ex-Apple engineers have joined forces to develop Astropad, an app that allows you to connect your iPad to drawing and painting programs like Photoshop.

It launches today, and it seems to have the potential to shake up a graphics tablet industry that is dominated by the expensive alternative Wacom. Although a company called Yiynova makes a high-quality and reliable 19 inch tablet monitor to rival Wacom’s Cintiq, the ability to use your iPad as a professional tablet seems like a no-brainer and I for one am glad that somebody is finally making that happen.

Head on over to Astropad to find out more details and even take it for a test drive, assuming you have Mac OS X 10.9+ and an iPad running on iOS 8.
