Advice on using iPad2 as a tablet with AD

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have been thinking about buying a drawing tablet to use with Affinity Designer and have spent a bit of time trying to make sense of all the options.


Then it occurred to me that I have a (rather elderly) iPad 2 lying almost unused and maybe that could be used as a drawing tablet......


And, heck, there are a lot of options here too.   Two main questions to find answers to: which software to go for, and which stylus?   After some reading, it looks like AstroPad is one good option, or Duet.  No free trials unfortunately, so no chance to try them first.


So I wonder if someone has been through this already and can recommend a combination that works well with AD - and will run on an iPad 2?


Thanks a lot,
