Duet Display, the app that allows you to turn your iPad into an extra display for your Mac, is today gaining new features designed to turn the iPad Pro into a high-performance graphics tablet able to compete with Intuos or Wacom drawing tablets.

The new "Duet Pro" capabilities allow Duet Display to support the Apple Pencil on a 12.9 or 9.7-inch iPad Pro, allowing users to draw directly on their iPads and have the result show up on a connected desktop app.

Duet Display is also being updated with new algorithms to make drawing more responsive and to allow for better color quality and color correction. Features like palm rejection and hover functionality are included.

Duet Pro will be available as part of a subscription tier that's priced at $20 per year for both new and existing customers.


Duet Display's pro features are available on Macs running OS X 10.9 or later and Windows machines running Windows 8 and 10. An iPad Pro is also required.

Duet Display can be downloaded from the App Store for $9.99, a temporary discount. [Direct Link]

Why can't users buy that functionality? $20 a year to rent it? Certainly lost me...

Wait, what?!?! $20 a year? That's a joke right. I'll stick to Astropad with no yearly "rental" fee.

I can't stand subscription apps; I'd rather buy something as opposed to have reoccurring bills for all eternity.

Ya I think that makes a lot of sense and agree. But the reason they can create such a high quality product is because they have additional resources to hire the best talent to continue improving it.

It is hard to maintain and update such a sophisticated app for a one time purchase which is why no one has done it yet.
HUH?!?! Adobe did this for more than 20-years. They switched over to to subscription because they knew they would make more money, a lot more money...not to better develop their software. Listen to every single user and they will say that Adobe apps have suffered since they switched.

Developers make more money by developing better software and offering the upgrades at a lower price to people that update than the new clients.

Software is a "product" not a "service". Netflix is a "service" not a "product".

Jesus Christ tightasses it's TWENTY DOLLARS PER YEAR for software that people are going to use for their professional jobs. TWENTY DOLLARS PER YEAR FOR PEOPLE TO USE, THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ALSO BOUGHT $1000 iPADS. Get some perspective...
It's not a "tight ass" thing in so far as that we are all getting subscription fatigue mainly. If you start adding things up, it becomes a daunting amount of "per month" for everything.

I'm happy to pay year over year - But not as a subscription. I want to own the current copy and be able to choose for myself if the yearly upgrade is compelling enough to justify more money.
