Astropad 1.1: Now with Pencil by FiftyThree

Apr 16th, 2015

Today we are happy to announce Astropad 1.1 and the most requested feature… support for Pencil by FiftyThree! We’ve been working closely with the team at FiftyThree to add Pencil, and we think you’re really going to like it.


We’ve built in special features like the eraser and surface pressure. Use the eraser to quickly wipe out mistakes in your favorite Mac creative tools! It’s effortless to switch between sketching and erasing, and it’s our favorite feature of Pencil.

Our Pencil support also comes with surface pressure. We detect how much of the tip is touching the screen and translate that into pressure.

So it’s time to get those Pencils out and take Astropad for a spin!

And More..

We have more goodies in this update as well!

  • We’ve added support for Adobe Ink, just choose Adonit when pairing to get setup
  • Major accuracy and wavy line improvements for the Adonit Jot Touch Pixelpoint.
  • Better palm rejection for Adonit styluses
  • New preference system with built-in help

Check it out and let us know what you think! If you enjoy Astropad, please leave us a review on the App Store, it means a lot to us!
