New drawing tools: Astropad & Remarkable

reMarkable is an e-ink tablet that promises serious sketching chops:

The Marker is a super precise tool – down to the smallest details. It puts digital ink on the reMarkable with incredibly low lag. It’s designed to let you focus on the task at hand. No battery charging or Bluetooth set-up. The tip is carefully designed with just the right friction to deliver a paper-like experience.

Meanwhile Astropad, which lets you use an iPad & Apple Pencil to draw in Mac apps, has been around for a couple of years, but the new Astropad Studio ups its game:

TechCrunch writes,

Astropad Studio connects to a client on your Mac (which you download separately) and lets you select a portion of your existing display or displays to define as the interaction surface for use on your iPad Pro. A small disc icon on the iPad screen allows you to tweak the shortcut settings and check for additional commands. The commands available are terrific…

Astropad Studio requires a $7.99 monthly or $64.99 yearly subscription, but with math you get settings sync, additional support and a promise from Astropad that it’ll be updated monthly with new features and improvements.
