7 Day Trial Verdict: Just Buy a Cintiq

While Astropad’s functionality should be default out of the box software by Apple for the iPad Pro, it’s not. Astropad has made a decent product, but for the price you would be a fool to not just buy a Wacom Cintiq.

I’d certainly pay $30 or even $50 for the software as a one off, and consider buying future upgrades, but no chance am I buying a subscription for $80 a year when you can buy a used Cintiq that will depreciate far less than $80 a year. There’s no point if you understand math and believe the products are equal.

However, they are not equal products. The Cintiq 13HD or 16 Pro is infinitely better than the experience on Astropad for professionals. If you are just messing around, sure, it’s a very good experience for a one off price. If you are just learning, still, just buy a are already rich enough to own an iPad Pro.

Sorry Astropad, you will not get my subscription, nor my $30 for your “standard” app you’ve apparently abandoned (going by the reviews). Your UI is good, and the experience is good. Your product does what it says on the tin, but your ethics make this a one star. You cannot be trusted.

The only chance you have to get my money is if my Cintiq breaks for more than 7 days (thanks to Apple forcing me to have 8 different iTunes accounts that can’t combine). Then it’s a reasonable, though suboptimal backup.


As a creative designer I do so much on my computer its ridiculous. I purchased a Wacom Pen and Touch tablet but always wished I could use an iPad. This is revolutionary.

Be sure to also check out their kickstarter “Luna.” That turns the iPad into a wireless 2nd Display.

Look out Duet Display, here comes Astropad ;)

Thanks for fixing the palm rejection issue

I requested that we could turn off any gesture as my palm was being misinterpreted as Erase like 50 times a day. This latest update fixed that. So thank you!
