Astropad lets you use your iPad as a drawing tablet for your Mac. Support for FiftyThree's Pencil hardware accessory includes the eraser, which lets you flip the Pencil over to erase mistakes, as well as surface pressure, so what you draw changes depending on the amount of pressure you use.

The app has also improved support for a number of other styluses. You can see the full set of changes in the list below:

Astropad now supports Pencil by FiftyThree and it's awesome! We've worked hard on really great Pencil support so even the built-in eraser will work with your Mac apps!

A lot more great stuff is included:

  • Major accuracy and wavy line improvements for the Jot Touch Pixelpoint
  • Better palm rejection for Adonit styluses
  • Adobe Ink support (choose Adonit when pairing)
  • Pencil by FiftyThree
  • New prefs with built-in help

Astropad 1.1 is available for download now on the App Store.
