Who are FiftyThree’s founders?
FiftyThree was founded by Georg Petschnigg, Andrew Allen, Julian Walker, and Jon Harris. The four met while working together at Microsoft; Georg, Andrew, and Jon worked on Microsoft Courier, while Julian worked on Photosynth, Bing Maps, and Silverlight. Noticing that no matter how technologically advanced the product they were at work on, people still used sticky notes, pens, and pencils to ideate, they decided to create a suite of digital tools geared towards creative productivity.
Where did you get the inspiration for your product?
FiftyThree started from the desire to create a new generation of tools for creative thinking, that took advantage of the powerful new technologies in mobile and social, yet were designed and built to reflect simple analog tools like a notepad and pencil.
Where did the company's name come from?
We founded FiftyThree to put the essential tools of creativity within arm’s reach and 53cm is the length of the arm’s reach. It’s the space where we create.
Who makes up FiftyThree’s team?
Our team is comprised of world-class designers, engineers, and community leaders who have been at the forefront of building simple, elegant, human-centric products and services. They have previously worked at such companies as Xbox, Sonos, Apple, Adobe, Google, Amazon, Flickr, and Vimeo.

Each stylus works better with some apps than with others, but across the board, the Pencil performs best. The Pencil's broad, rubber point, which makes more difficult to see fine lines, offsets this disadvantage by allowing a far better feel on the surface of the iPad. The hard points of the Intuos and Adonit styli feel like trying to draw on ice of very slick glass (and the latter, of course, is exactly what you ARE trying to draw upon.)
All the styli that I have used on the Air 2 suffer from often not immediately starting to draw at the point where you first touch the screen. They also all sometimes temporarily skip when drawing lines. In short, all are cranky and harder to use than a pencil or pen on traditional media. The Pencil, in my opinion, is the best of the bunch, but none approach the precision or feel of using of using a Wacom tablet and stylus hooked to a laptop or desktop computer.
I have also tried Adobe's Ink and Slide and very much liked how it (they) worked with the Adobe apps (which are excellent) but, alas, the Ink stylus quit recharging within the first month that I owned it, so I returned it to Amazon and that's when I got the Wacom Intuos.
I still await, and long for, the "ideal" stylus for the iPad. Meanwhile the Pencil by 53 continues to be my "Go-to" sylus for the iPad Air 2. I hope this is helpful because I have spent quite a bit of time and money in my search and maybe it can help you in making your decision.
1) Feels and looks amazing. Very sturdy
2) Amazing stylus, even better with the app "Paper by 53"
3) Magnet is very strong, I've had no issues having this "snap" to my iPad cover and stay put as I move about.
4) Comes with replacements tips
1) Expensive (for a stylus...)
2) slightly gimmicky. Again, once you fiddle with it though, it's amazing.
** Troubleshooting **
* I had to replace the eraser tip with the extra one they included
* I also had to take the pencil tip off, clean, and put it back on as tight and snug as I could.
* I had to rub my finger along the gold USB charge plates to get it to charge
-It is very intuitive. It feels just like a drafters pencil in the hand, although a but top heavy towards the eraser.
-The lines are even, and produced expectively.
-Charges very quickly. The reported charge time was around 90 minutes, and out of the box, it took maybe forty.
-Compact design allows for easy mode of travel
-Direct Paper53 app integration. You can link, via bluetooth, directly on the page or in Paper53's settings.
-Blend capability, so far in my understanding, Pencil 53 is the only stylus that affords the blend function within Paper.
-To accurately function, I had to take the iPad's screen protector off, and now it requires daily cleaning from smudges...
-...caused by Pencil 53's tip, which leads me to my next issue..
- To have the app recognize a stroke, you have to push down with a decent amount of pressure. This had immediate implications. I've already used up and chewed up one of my tips, and it's only been two weeks! There is no sensitivity scale to increase or decrease as desired. The tips leave rubbery smudges when too much pressure has been applied, and no stroke is recognized with too little. For someone who sketches with feather strokes, this is severely aggravating.
- Blend is too sensitive, in so much that it's very awkward to have "pinpoint" smudge shading, and the smudge just feels like it goes 0->100 without a gradient.
-Man. The connectivity. WHEN it connects you can apply the "good" and "not-so-good" applications. I don't know what's the deal, but it'll connect around 10-20% of the time. It's infuriating!
