Air Stylus for iOS converts iPad into tablet for computer drawing apps

updated 04:02 pm EDT, Thu June 19, 2014

New app utilizes pressure sensitive styli, including new Adobe Ink stylus

Developer Avatron software, known for display extender Air Display 2 has launched a new app called Air Stylus. The app lets artists use an iPad or Android tablet as a wireless drawing surface for Mac- or PC-based graphics software programs such as Adobe Photoshop or Apple Aperture. With Air Stylus and a pressure-sensitive pen, users can draw directly on the iPad's screen into almost any computer-based creative software that supports pressure sensitivity.

Air Stylus will be compatible with Adobe's new stylus, and was built from the ground up to be compatible with Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, and more than 30 other creative apps that support pressure sensitivity. Following purchase of the Air Stylus iOS or Android app, users install the free Air Display host software on the computer, then tap to launch the app on their iPads. Once the wireless connection is made from the computer, users may launch their graphic design program, drag its window to the iPad's screen, activate the pressure-sensitive pen and begin to draw directly on the iPad's display.

Air Stylus 1.0 is $20 and available through the App Store in the Productivity category. It requires an iPad running iOS 7 or later. The Android version is coming soon to Google Play.
