My weakness for pens turned into a weakness for styluses way back in the Palm Pilot days. In a drawer somewhere, I still have a Ziploc bag full of old styluses that I'll probably never use again, but can't bring myself to throw away. That's why I have been happy to see that the stylus [...]

There are hundreds of capacitive styluses on the market right now. Small ones, big ones, fat ones, skinny ones and even ones that look and feel like a paintbrush. But of all the styluses on the market, there are only a few that have pressure sensitivity. Adding that feature can take your digital artwork to [...]

I opened my mailbox the other day to find the Sensu Solo paintbrush stylus waiting for me. Sensu isn't new to the stylus scene, they have been offering what I consider the most realistic feeling paintbrush stylus for over a year. See my review of the Sensu Artist Brush in the related links below. The [...]

pogo-tips

Earlier this summer I posted a review of Ten One Design's Pogo Connect stylus. This isn't an ordinary stylus. It's a battery powered, Bluetooth enabled stylus that pairs with certain iOS devices and provides varying line widths depending on the pressure exerted on the tip. Unlike the vast majority of capacitive styluses on the market, [...]

I must admit that I love to use a stylus when I am using my iPhone, iPad or even my iPod Touch. The problem I usually have when I want to use a stylus is that I can never find one when I need one. I have several but they are just not around when [...]

I am a big fan of tablets for my everyday reading of news, setting reminders, and writing down notes.  I've tried a couple of styluses back when I owned my first iPad, and I continue to try them for my Nexus 7.  I also enjoy a good old-fashioned pen when I need to write down [...]

I've seen a stylus combined with an ink pen, and I've seen styluses that plug into the 30-pin connector of an Apple iOS device, but I've never seen this combination before.  The APOTOP Touch Disk 32GB External Storage USB 2.0 Flash Drive  is a stubby little capacitive stylus that has a 32GB flash drive in [...]

When you're in the product review biz like we are around here, you know there are going to be some lemons mixed in with the diamonds. But it's even more disappointing when you spend your own money on something and it turns out to be a dud. That's what happened to me when I recently [...]

Here's a stylus that will turn heads.  Instead of those short, skinny styluses that cause your fingers to cramp up, add a Stylus Cap from More/Real to your Sharpie.  Sharpies are a good size to hold comfortably, and the added stylus cap means you'll be able to use it with your tablet or smart phone [...]

octopus-like-stylus

In the earlier days of PDAs and other small handheld devices, everything had a stylus and everything had a silo to hold it when you weren't using it.  Most tablets and smartphones today don't come with a stylus, and you're left trying to find a way to keep up with it if you use one. [...]

Trying to choose your perfect stylus is a tough task due to the huge variety of capacitive styluses to choose from. There are tiny ones like the MicroStylus that stores in your device's headphone jack to long ones like the Joy Factory Monet Stylus that looks more like a drumstick than a stylus. I think the [...]
