Avatron, the developer of Air Display, has today released a new iPad app. Air Stylus extends your computer screen to the iPad display and, in combination with a pressure-sensitive pen, turns the latter into a graphics tablet that works with a range of imaging applications including Adobe Photoshop and Apple's Aperture. 

Currently Air Stylus is only compatible with the iPad 3 and newer models, as well as Macs running OS X 10.7 or later. However, Android and Windows versions of the app are also under development.  Supported pressure-sensitive pens include the Adonit Jot Touch 4, Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus, and Pogo Connect from Ten One Design.

At $19.99 in the Apple App Store Air Stylus is not a cheap app but might still be a very sensible purchase for those who have been toying with the idea of investing in a full-blown graphics tablet. Just make sure there's enough room in the budget for a pressure-sensitive pen as well.
