Thanks !

THAT Rooster ROCKS !

Now I just have to rethink how to unload the Iphone to get a Samsung
or I'll have to get a second "phone" just to use it as a sketchpad. Weird,
but I'll look into it.

@bngi, are you talking about the Pogo Connect, blue tooth enhanced stylus

http://tenonedesign.com/connect.php.

It looks pretty cool. I haven't talked to anybody who has used it and the testimonial movies do not convince me that it does anything special. It's also $80.

I just got any iPad and I'm in the market to upgrade my current stylus.

From the front page the other day. Made me think of this topic.

Yeah exactly. Theres also the Jot stylus from http://adonit.net/ which looks interesting. Should get one soon if i can spare some cash. Not a fan of the bulky tips like the pogo and other standard styli's. (Sooo what is the plural form of stylus...needs to be settled.)

I don't know about the Jot, that clear disc makes me uneasy, but I have not tried so that is totally unfounded.

I have the Jot Touch. As far as the standard stylus aspect, it's nice. I don't' mind the plastic disc. BUT, the disc does mark some screen protectors. (I had a zagg HD something or other that the Jot didn't scratch, but it wasn't very clear. I put a cheap screen protector on and it has gathered a few scratches)

I can't really speak to the pressure sensitivity because my stylus quit working after the first use. It's apparently a very common problem and they will replace it, but I haven't had time to mail it back. :/


As a side note, I have an old compaq TC1100 tablet that I used to use like a cintiq. I haven't messed with it in a couple years, but at the time it ran windows 7 and sketchbook acceptably and had a wacom digitizer. Not an ideal solution, but it was cheap when I bought it, and they're probably even less now.

Nice link,

I agree too since I've tried a ton of those and the Bamboo is my favorite. The rubbery tip provides a really nice balance of friction and slip to let you draw with it. The only downside I've seen is a friend who bought one tore through the rubber rather quickly, though he was using it for gaming for hours a day.

Pogo Connect pressure sensitive stylus for iPad review on Gizmodo.
http://gizmodo.com/5976221/pogo-connect ... half+baked

I tried the Adonit pressure sensitive stylus at CES last week. The levels of pressure sensitivity was far too low and jumpy to be useful in my opinion. However the weight and feel of the stylus and the clear plastic disk tip both felt really good.

I have a Cintiq 12 ux here at home and it doesn't have the sensitivity of the bigger 21" I had with my previous employer. It does work well for I use it for and the price was pretty good. I may look for a used 21" this year and try to sell the 12". The freelance work I have done with it has paid for it 2 or 3x over.

Now I have a retina iPad and i want to try to use it as a sketch pad.

Good to know! Wish i could try it out,
Cant imagine that The pogo will have a much better pressure sens than adonit. Theres also that gigantic rubber nib on the pogo, but seems likely that they will offer other nibs since they have thst magnetic system,
