As I mentioned earlier that the app is meant to turn your iPad into a graphics tablet, it’s worth noting here that Astropad itself offers no drawing tools as such, but simply offers a gateway to the interface of say, Adobe Photoshop for example, thereby not limiting your options and letting you use it with your favorite drawing tools.

Astropad supports most pressure sensitive pens, giving you the freedom to work with a large selection of stylus tools.


Getting Started



When is Pencil coming? Adobe Ink?

Coming in the spring! Adobe Ink too. Since Pencil doesn’t have pressure, you can use Astropad in Finger mode with it… while you wait for full support.

Can I use a passive stylus that doesn’t have Bluetooth?

Absolutely! In that case, there is no need to pair your stylus and instead use Astropad in “Finger” mode.

Can I use the stylus that came with my Wacom tablet?

No, you’ll need a stylus specifically designed for the iPad. Here are a few we recommend.

Why doesn’t pressure sensitivity work with Photoshop CS5?

This a bug that is specific to Photoshop CS5 that we are looking into. Other versions of Photoshop will work.

What is the pixelation I sometimes see on my iPad?

Pixelation is expected and by design. We are optimized for displaying high quality still images.

If a large change occurs on your Mac screen and we are unable to keep up, we show pixelated content. This is a signal that we don’t have the full screen in yet, and that the screen image is loading. Astropad is honest, when the image is clear, you are assured what you see is the actual content, artifact free.

Sending high image quality over WiFi is really challenging. Ever wonder why we don’t have wireless TVs? or Wireless computer displays? It’s really really hard to do.

I have a 2009 iMac and all I get is a black screen on Astropad

This is a known bug that we are actively working on that is specific to this Mac. Keep an eye out for an update!

Will there be Astropad for Windows? or Android?

Not in the plans at the moment.
