UPDATE- I just answered my own question. Just went and tried to use the keyboard with Astropad Studio and sure enough, it fully works.
Which is really lame since you told everyone it was coming to the basic version bc obviously isn't.
The subscription model is crap; it was when Adobe started the trend years back and still is when every other company out there copies it.
If you need to generate more revenue to keep your company afloat, create some additional apps instead of squeezing as much as you can from loyal customers for one app that they will never be able to own.
I have to go return my smart keyboard and cancel my Astropad Studio subscription before I get charged for a second month.
