Great with drawing apps... but design lacks foresight with the cap.
on October 1, 2012
This is by far the best stylus I own. Here's what I think:
Customizable (the box includes two point sizes, as well as these little colored rings so you can "personalize" your stylus).
Extendable (it shortens so it can actually fit in your pocket)
Actually feels like holding a pen
Skips a bit. (I have an Otterbox case, so the plastic overlay might be the issue here.)
The metal cap that covers the pointing tip doesn't fit securely on the other end of the stylus (like a pen cap)-- so you either use the headphone jack attachment, or just risk losing the cap altogether.
The headphone jack attachment (which is supposed attach the stylus to the device via its cap)
There's also no pen -- it's just a stylus. Initially, I thought that what I wanted was just a stylus, but after using several pen/stylus combo models, I found that I actually miss having the pen.
In all, the stylus is pretty great for drawing on a tablet, and that's primarily how I use it. Any other activity, however, is often more convenient to complete without this extra little gadget. The cap not fitting on the the opposite end of the stylus is probably my biggest complaint design-wise... so, while the pocket clip is great, I'd actually sacrifice that if I didn't have to worry about losing the cap all the time. I don't use the headphone jack attachment: not only does my Otterbox case not permit that conveniently, but what if I am actually using the headphones? Plus, who wants a haphazardly dangling stylus? ;-)
