Duet Pro takes another stab at turning your iPad into a Wacom tablet

New, 7 comments

Duet Pro 2.0 available to download now

Today Duet is announcing Duet Pro 2.0, its latest iteration on the fantastically useful Duet Display iPad utility that turns Apple's tablet into a responsive secondary display for macOS or Windows computers. 2.0 builds upon the initial Pro release we tested in October, that turns an iPad Pro into a makeshift Wacom tablet for iPad Pro + Pencil owners.

Duet Pro 2.0 adds the following features:

  • Customized Pressure Curve: This allows for a personalized drawing experience.
  • Advanced Gestures: New gestures including double-, left-, and right-click; hover; four-finger tap; undo and redo; scroll; and zoom help users treat their iPad as their primary device.

  • Line Lead: A line preview to predict where the Pencil is before the OS does in order to speed up drawing. This can be turned on and off with a gesture directly on the iPad.
  • Touch Bar: Improved stability and speed since Duet added the feature in December.
  • Improved Color Quality: Rendering quality and speed has been improved.

Duet Display costs $20 for life while the Pro 2.0 in-app purchase costs an additional $20 per year (with a free one-week trial). If you're a digital artist, or aspire to be one, and you already own an iPad Pro then it's probably worth a look. Look for the app to go live at this link.
