Nomadbrush Compose Short Tip (iOS stylus)

On June 18, 2012, in Features, iPad, iPad 2, by Curt Blanchard

Nomadbrush Compose Short Tip

Styli for iOS devices abound these days—big tips, small tips, plastic tips, metal tips, spongy tips, and even some with brushes. If you are a writer or a note taker, a fine rubber tip is probably going to be best for you. If you use a stylus mostly for casual games such as Draw Something, almost any stylus will be better than your finger.

However, if you’re an artist, the right stylus is a very personal choice. For you, it’s a tool, not a gadget. Ultimately, the best stylus is the one that suits you and your style of drawing or painting.

On January 18, 2012, in iPad, iPad 2, iPhone, Review, Tablet, by Russ Walkowich

Virtuoso Metro Stylus & Pen for Tablets
Company: Kensington
Price: $17.99 MSRP

The ease of use of touch screens on iPhones, iPads and other similar products that utilize capacitive materials that allow the user to simply touch the screen to make changes or allow input have really changed the communications landscape in the past several years. Yet, there are still limitations that occur, especially when it is cold outside and the user is wearing gloves or other instances where, for whatever reason, that “human” capacitive touch is not occurring.

iPad Sleeve, Stylus, Stand, and Case

On December 8, 2010, in Cases, iPad, Keyboard, Messenger Bag, Review, Stand, by John Nemerovski

WaterField iPad Wallet, Hard Candy Stylus and Pen, Griffin Technology iPad Tablet Stand, and Griffin Technology Elan Passport Graphite iPad Folio Case

Guest iPad gear review by Jackie Richards – Part Four. Many of the items reviewed below will make great stocking stuffers any time of year.

iPad Wallet
Company: WaterField Design
Price: $79 U.S. (plus optional straps and D-rings)

WaterField’s iPad Wallet has an clever design for storing and carrying an iPad plus an Apple Wireless Keyboard and several accessories. It is a premium all-weather product. The construction and design are stylish, attractive, and suitable for men and women. This tote can be ordered with or without two kinds of strap and/or D-rings, as customized from the company’s web site. Six outer colors are available.

The Wallet’s rectangular shape is enhanced by genuine leather edging, in addition to rugged outer material. Interior padded pockets “keep your iPad and Keyboard separate and safe,” according to WaterField, and that claim is accurate. A loose premium nylon mesh rear pocket is deep enough for a small purse, several cables, or a book.

Jackie loves her Griffin iPad Stylus, with its short stub length and round shape. She wouldn’t use the pocket clip, but she thinks many men and some women will be glad to have the clip. Jackie threaded a thin pink ribbon through the lanyard loop end, to help her keep track of the stylus.

Ten One Design’s Pogo Stylus – Review

On November 6, 2008, in iPhone, Review, by MyMac

Ten One Design’s Pogo Stylus (for iPhone 3G, iPhone and iPod Touch)
Company: Ten One Design

Price: $19.95 USD

Actual situation… driving down the highway, doing the posted speed limit (plus a few miles) and traffic is pre-rush hour and what happens? A text message from my son. Well, I know enough not to even try answering him even if my texting capabilities were as good as his. (bedsides one should not be texting while driving!) So, I do the next best thing. I hand it to my wife and tell her to respond. What happened? She couldn’t respond back because of her nails. So I wound up calling him to respond to his query. Problem was that where he texted me from, he could not answer the phone call.
