I'm not sure what the exact date the original AP was released but I was definitely a 'buyer' when I first noticed it was available.
I love the standard app and the 'Studio' version is a spectacular sequel and tool for the working iPad professional.
I still have my Adobe CS3 and 5 boxes, disks and the rest as well, three years of Adobe CC receipts ($50/month) and several Wacom tabs from over the years.
The subscription model is here to stay... but then again, it has been. For the price of a couple cups of coffee a month, here's an app that is comparable to hardware costing exponentially more and in many respects, with less features and certainly efficiencies.
If you own the 12.9" iPad Pro ...I have both iPad Pro models but use the larger model for work and the smaller for personal and 'fun'. If you, too bought a 12.9" and are a professional illustrator, designer, photographer or other creative who routinely uses the MacBook, iMac or other models of desk or laptop with software that takes advantage of an external tab... there's a 7 day trial - do it. Use it and close your ears to the incessant whining about price ... as it's a drop in the bucket of dollars spent to increase dollars earned
For hobbyists, standard AP is an amazing app. For a professional, it's another $65 to write off each year!
As a long term Astropad, I was hesitant about the idea of paying a subscription fee for Astropad Studio. Now, after fully using it for only a few days, I can tell you is absolutely worthy and absolutely stunning! The tools they created to allow me to control the Photoshop interface directly from my iPad Pro are just what I as hoping for, speed for drawing is impressive, and so is the retina support. For anybody complaining about paying a monthly fee, they simply don't understand that products like this, with this level of quality, need to be properly remunerated for the time and effort it takes to create them and maintain them. There is always the original Astropad with a fixed price, which was already amazing, but if you need the next step in professionalism, Astropad Studio is for you.
Great Product for Serious Professionals
If you're familiar with Astropad Standard be prepared to be blown away. Astropad Studio brings ammo to only maximize productivity and workflow and does so with innovation. I got an iPad Pro to replace my Wacom Bamboo (because I was tired of the lack of firmware support on Mac OS) with Astropad in mind and have been using it ever since. Now with Astropad Studio, I'm glad with my decision to make the switch from Wacom because this app honestly gives them a run for their money. Latency is amazingly low wirelessly, and when plugged in it's almost not there. The gestures help me move extremely faster and feel more natural than keyboard shortcuts would be. The yearly subscription totally worth it. I'm looking forward to the features to come.
