HAND Stylus Capacitive Stylus Review

on Thursday, June 21st, 2012

I’ve been looking forward to trying the HAND Stylus since first seeing one on KickStarter where it was funded for more than 12 times the amount originally asked for. In a market where so many styluses look almost exactly the same, the HAND Stylus offers some great features that will probably make it an instantRead More…

The Joy Factory Monet Stylus Review

on Monday, May 28th, 2012

My quest for the best stylus continues as I keep finding new ones that look interesting enough to try. The latest one to glide across my iPad is the Monet stylus from The Joy Factory. Available in Green, Pink or Black, this stylus looks more like a drumstick than a capacitive stylus. Let’s take itRead More…

LOGiiX Styluses Review

on Sunday, May 6th, 2012

At some point, most tablet and smartphone owners think about buying a stylus. Today I have threes styluses from LOGiiX to show you that can be used for writing, drawing and even presenting at your next meeting. LOGiiX isn’t a company that I was familiar with before they contacted me to ask if I’d reviewRead More…

MicroStylus Review

on Saturday, April 28th, 2012

For 99.9% of the things you do on your smartphone you don’t really need a stylus. But if you’re as addicted to Draw Something as I am, you may find that a stylus is almost a necessary accessory (say that 3 times fast for bonus points). At least if you want your opponent to beRead More…

Just Mobile AluPen Pro Review

on Friday, April 27th, 2012

I travel a great deal throughout the country and do my best to survey what the tech folks are using along the way. This is especially true in the airports, where people (young children to little old ladies and everything in between) are killing time on their various electronic devices. Over the past year orRead More…

Sensu Artist Brush Capacitive Stylus Review

on Thursday, April 26th, 2012

If you enjoy painting on canvas, you might find that you also enjoy “painting” on an iPad. Or if you’ve never painted before, doing so on a tablet is fun and way less messy. I am a doodler and don’t claim to have any talent whatsoever. I just enjoy drawing cartoons and thingamabobs whenever I’mRead More…

oStylus DOT Capacitive Stylus Review

on Friday, April 20th, 2012

A couple of years ago I reviewed a very unique Canadian made stylus called the oStylus. It had a very unique design with a bullseye style swivel tip. At the time I really liked the stylus because it made it much easier to draw due to the fact that I was able to see theRead More…

Ten One Design Pogo Sketch Plus Review

on Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

The Pogo Sketch Plus from Ten One Design is a stylus for capacitive displays like those found on the iPad, iPhone and Android tablets. Check out my full report after the jump. Note: Click the images in this review to see a larger view. Made of anodized aluminum, the Pogo Sketch Plus is available inRead More…

Adonit Jot Pro Stylus Review

on Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Accessories can sometimes be just as important to us as the gadgets themselves. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m always on the lookout for a new favorite gear bag, wallet, writing instrument, phone case, etc. Lately I’ve been fixating on finding the perfect capacitive stylus that I can use for drawing andRead More…

SGP Case Steinheil Ultra Mirror Half Mirror Screen Protectors and Kuel H10 Stylus Pen Review

on Friday, January 27th, 2012

When SGP Case sent me the iPhone 4 Valentinus case I reviewed recently, they included a couple of extra goodies in the box.  They sent along the Steinheil Ultra Mirror Half Mirror Screen Protector for iPhone 4S/iPhone 4/CDMA iPhone 4 and the Kuel H10 Stylus Pen.  While the screen protector is obviously only for iPhones,Read More…

XStylus Crayon for Nintendo 3DS/DS Review

on Saturday, January 7th, 2012

I remember the day I eagerly unpacked my first Nintendo DS.  At the time it was revolutionary–a touch screen gaming platform.  I inserted my first game (Nintendogs!) and picked up the stylus for the very first time.  It was then that I noticed said stylus had apparently been sized for a toddler instead of anRead More…

Tuff-Luv StyleUs Touchpen Capactive Stylus Review

on Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

I am on a quest to find the best all around stylus that I can use for drawing and writing on my iPad and / or iPhone. The latest one that I’ve had the opportunity to review is the StyleUs Touchpen from Tuff-Luv. It combines a capacitive stylus with a Black and Red ink pen.Read More…

Fylus Capacitive Fingertip Stylus Review

on Sunday, December 4th, 2011

Some people have trouble using capacitive touchscreens because they find their fingers are just too big for those tiny little keys on a smartphone screen.  Others don’t like to use touchscreens because they don’t like leaving oily smears on the glass.  Whatever the reason, some people want to use a stylus with their device, butRead More…

Nomad Compose Dual Tip Paint Brush Stylus Review

on Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

A normal stylus with a hard tip works fine for writing and sketching, but when you want to “paint” on your tablet, a stylus with a brush tip can be a much better choice. There aren’t many styli on the market that fit this criteria and I’ve only had the opportunity to review one otherRead More…

Targus Stylus for iPad Review

on Friday, November 25th, 2011

When I recently received the Targus Versavu Keyboard and Case for iPad 2 for review, I also received a Targus Stylus at the same time.  I thought I’d save the stylus for a separate review, and I thought it would be perfect for the series of holiday gift idea reviews Julie had planned.  Let’s giveRead More…

JAVOedge Apple iPad 2 Mini Stylus Review

on Friday, August 5th, 2011

This is the first year I’ve owned a smartphone, so this winter will be the first time I’ll have to deal with trying to answer a capacitive touchscreen phone while wearing gloves.  I know there are gloves that have the metallic threads sewn into the thumb and index fingertips, but it seems most of themRead More…

Monteverde One Touch Stylus Pen Review

on Friday, July 15th, 2011

Back in the day, all touchscreen devices came with a tiny little stylus that was hard to hold and easy to lose.  Eventually capacitive touchscreens that respond to the touch of your fingers evolved, and most people rejoiced.  Not everybody, though, because some people like using a stylus because they don’t want to smear theirRead More…

Just Mobile AluPen iPad Stylus Review

on Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Back when Steve Jobs introduced the original iPhone, he went on and on about how Apple decided to use the most natural stylus, your finger, for navigating the newly designed touchscreen. The advantages were obvious: You already know how to use your finger (no, not THAT finger), you can’t misplace it and it’s always there,Read More…

oStylus Capacitive Touch Screen Stylus Review

on Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

The iPad is known to be primarily a finger driven device, but it seems to be creating a revival of the stylus. Why? People who enjoy drawing and sketching want a tool to make it easier. We’ve been reviewing several styli since the iPad’s release and today I have another. It’s the oStylus Capacitive TouchRead More…

DAGi Stylus for iPad Review

on Saturday, September 18th, 2010

Got an iDevice?  Love to draw?  Hate to use your finger?  There’s a stylus for that!  Unlike many other styli like the Pogo Stylus or WirelessGround Stylus, DAGi’s Stylus has one advantage over them.  It allows the user to be able to see what they are writing/drawing on the screen. These transparent accurate capacitive styliRead More…

WirelessGround Capacitive Touch Screen Stylus Pen Review

on Monday, June 21st, 2010

Although the touch screen was not a new technology when the first iPhone was released, this device did usher in a new age in touch screen interactivity. Before the iPhone, most smartphone and PDA users employed a stylus as the preferred method of input. The iPhone changed that with the capacitive touch screen and trueRead More…

iClooly Multi-Touch Pen for iPad Review

on Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

The best thing about the iPhone and iPad is that they are finger friendly. No stylus needed. Sometimes a stylus does come in handy though and regular ones will not work with these devices due to their capacitive displays. I’ve reviewed other capacitive styli in the past, but today I want to tell you aboutRead More…
