The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are a formidable duo. The iPad Pro is fast, has a crisp, bright display, and the response of the Pencil on than display is something to behold. I don't use the pencil much, but I do like to have it with me. If you've not seen it, it is [...]

Like pens and pencils, styluses come in all manner of shapes and sizes, but one thing holds true with today's styluses... If you want a stylus with a [...]

  Inexpensive capacitive styluses get the job done, but battery powered active styluses can do a much better job of mimicking the pen on paper feel that most of us want when drawing or writing on our touchscreen devices. Lynktec is no stranger to styluses and I've reviewed several of their products (see related posts [...]

Stilo stylus review

stilo-stylus-6

Steve Jobs may have hated them, but I've always liked styluses. I have a collection of them because I'm always trying to find the perfect one that doesn't feel like a stylus at all, but more like a pen on paper. The latest stylus that I've had the opportunity to test is the Stilo stylus. [...]
