Astropad transforms your iPad into a full graphics tablet

Did you ever wish you could sync up your iPad’s drawing or painting app directly with your Mac? Now you can with Astropad, a brand new app that literally mirrors your Mac desktop via Wi-Fi or USB.

Created by two ex-Apple engineers – Matt Ronge and Giovanni Donelli – Astropad works with several popular brands of pressure-sensitive pens to create a pro-level drawing tablet that pairs with your Mac for illustration, sketching, painting and photo editing.

This always seemed like such a no-brainer to me. In fact, I’m surprised this kind of ‘tethering’ functionality isn’t built into iOS+OS X themselves by Apple.
