  • Posted to Astropad & Luna Display Announce Windows Support, Oct 01, 2020

    Hey DesignerNews!

    Windows support for both Astropad and Luna Display has been our top feature request for years. On top of that, we've heard from many artists and designers switching to Windows that they miss our tools. So I'm excited to announce that we're in the final stages of coming to Windows!

    For those not familiar with our products, we build tools that enhance the iPad for creative pros. Luna Display is a hardware device that turns the iPad into a wireless display, now for PC and Mac. Astropad is a software that transforms the iPad into a powerful drawing tablet that can replace your Wacom. Astropad works with your Mac and a free public beta for Windows is coming later this year.

    We are launching Luna Display for Windows on Kickstarter today and would love to have you back us!

    We're also interested in your thoughts on Windows. Are you a designer on Windows? Or have you thought about switching?

    We're working on it. There is an extra electronics certification for Australia that we need to complete first. If you sign up for our mailing list, we'll let you know when we open up shipping to Australia!

    Hi Mariusz,

    Nope! However, it does work with Astropad so you can get drawing support + 2nd display. Really the best of both when used together.

  • Posted to 7 Design Portfolio Tips From a Hiring Manager, in reply to Terrell Griffith , Mar 28, 2018

    I've seen far too many portfolios with pages and pages of text and wireframes, and it's really easy to get lost.

    It's important that designers are able to summarize and simplify (honestly that's a major part of), so when I see tons of process and the end result is buried, I get turned off.

    Thank you, this is something we've been worked on for some time as you noted.

    We like to cook up crazy ideas like this and then let them simmer, knowing that eventually, we'll find a use for them!

  • Posted to Introducing Astropad Studio - Go beyond a graphics tablet, Jan 11, 2017

    Astropad Studio is our new, flagship edition of Astropad. Over the past two years, we’ve learned a ton about what professional creatives are looking for from a graphics tablet. We’ve taken that feedback and built Astropad Studio to go beyond a traditional graphics tablet.

    Check out our demo video:

  • Posted to Introducing Astropad 2.0: Turn your iPad into an ultra responsive drawing tablet, Aug 03, 2016

    Lately we've heard a lot of stories about people replacing their Wacom tablets with Astropad and an iPad. Our update will be free for existing users. Here's what's new:

    • High-performance Liquid upgrade: Powered by Liquid core technology, now running three times faster with massively reduced pixelation

    • New Velocity control: Analyzes network conditions dozens of times per second to balance image quality and latency

    • Refined pressure curve: Hand-tuned by artists for a more natural drawing feel

    • Enhanced software compatibility: Supports panning and zooming gestures across more programs

  • Posted to Astropad for iPad Pro - Turn your iPad Pro into a Mac drawing tablet , Dec 21, 2015

    We are launching today our official support for iPad Pro. The Apple Pencil and iPad Pro is fantastic, it's the hardware we've been dreaming of for Astropad.

    This update adds first class support for iPad Pro and Apple Pencil with things like tilt and full pressure.

    Happy to answer any questions.
