Astropad, getting a graphic tablet out of your iPad

Released last week, ASTROPAD is one of the most interesting software released in the Apple ecosystem in these last few months.

Pairing a free app on the iOS device, with it’s counterpart on OS X, it enables a two way communications between the video of your Mac and the input capabilities of the touch display of the iPad, becoming de-facto a graphic tablet (like a Wacom).

At download time you have a 7 days, full featured, trial period. Then you’ll have to pay ~50$ for it. From the fist test I’ve done with some friends the app behaves better with tools like Photoshop, Pixelmator and such… other than some CAD, where it misses some keyboard integrations.

The developers are really active and interacts with their customers (potential ones too), so be sure to follow @astropadapp also on Twitter…
