I am digging the combination. I do agree though that I am unable to input text into input parameters in software in general. This is a big hindrance because I can use it for beyond sketching. We even have some great custom apps that can utilize astropad. I just got the Smart Cover for the iPad thinking maybe because it’s hardware based instead othe virtual on screen keyboard it would work but it didn’t. So that was disappointing but I’ve contacted support about it. The pencil has been a joy to use and even with astropad the experience is joyful so far. I can also confirm the dedicated modifiers, shit, alt and control not working with the 3D apps. But the scroll did work (however the pinch, pan all behaved the same)
I would say in the future
- support of keyboard input, virtual or physical
- I would love to be able to log into this Ala VNC at some point remotely
Thanks for the hard work, I do love how easy it is to setup and get going. I was navigating MODOs interactive renderer and changing parameters, as well as painting on 3D models. And that a great experience sitting on couch while doing that, then switching to iOS while the render progressed. Love it.
Edit: regarding the pencil, your best bet is talking to an apple business unit or specialist and asking them to give you a call when a shipment is coming into the store. Or an approximate window of delivery time. They get shipments on a daily basis.
