The Duet Display software app has taken the creative industry by storm. Duet Display has allowed us to turn iPads into second screens for computers, but with new featured updates, the software now supports the Apple Pencil, allowing you to turn iPad Pro into a high-performance graphics tablet that’s able to compete with Intuos or Wacom drawing tablets.
Updates have allowed for creating a drawing responsive platform and to allow for better colour quality and colour correction. New updates also support Palm rejection and hover functionality. Though the software runs on both Microsoft and Apple platforms, the headlines as of late have been toward the iPad, and the new perceived benefits with the new Pro version of the app, which adds pressure and tilt sensitivity. The update is aimed at artists to use as a professional graphics tablet, like a Wacom.
Originally the software was used to as a screen share to across devices, allowing you to feel like a multi-tasking wizard, letting users turn their iPad into a second screen for their Mac with virtually no latency via wired Lightning cable connection. Now the Pro version of the app is allowing users, to use the Pencil as a pressure sensitive stylus for directly working in painting, drawing and other graphic apps including Photoshop and Illustrator.
Duet Display is a best-selling iPad app in the US, Japan, UK, Germany, and 17 other countries according to the Apple store, and the app is subscription-based, costing £20 a year. Fortunately, the price has been halved for a limited time as a promotion for the new Pro version.
