1. Lightweight but solid feel to the body of the stylus. So far, I've had no hand fatigue due to heaviness nor have I felt that I could break it!
2. Easily recognized handwriting when using apps for annotation (such as Note Taker HD or Air Sketch). Hint: if the app has a "zoom" feature, I use this to zoom in on the file or note that I want to write upon. For Note Taker HD, I have found that "Edit 1" is excellent.
3. The clip, which I at first thought was dorky, allows me to put the stylus in either my breast or pants pocket so I can find it easily.
4. Flexible (rounded) tip seems durable. This is in direct contradiction to what most people say about the Ten One Design Pogo Sketch stylus for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch (Cactus Green). I read several reviews about the degradation of the tip on the Pogo Sketch. I've had this stylus for well over one month now with no signs of wear.
5. After having received this stylus, it looks almost identical to the BoxWave Capacitive iPad Stylus (Jet Black) which gets excellent reviews. The Griffin doesn't come with the tether, but I cannot imagine using it.Read more ›
* Pen quality
1) The pen is very well built. Has a durable, solid feel to it (even when trying to bend the shaft), has a nice weight, and doesn't feel cumbersome when carrying over the screen.
2) The rubber nub is soft and rounded, and feels like it's made of very thin material. It's about 1/4th an each in diameter and obviously hollow. You can press into it for a few centimeters
* Practicality for Art
It's barely usable for sketching. As device to point and select, it fulfills that function mostly. It has a moderate tilt recognition wherein the device will pick up the pen input when it's at maybe a 15-degree angle (and in that it's a fat nub) , but for sketching, unless you have the pen nearly perpendicular to the screen, it isn't very comfortable to use. Even for normal function, the pen isn't always picked up by the tablet, and this prompts me to naturally want to press with the pen harder under the assumption it wasn't registering properly (as the tablet itself is very responsive). I gather the requirement to have the pen nearly perpendicular for just standard tablet usage might be a problem for others too.
I will say that it's easier to draw with then pen than with your fingers, but that's not something I'd interpret as a recommendation, really.
Oh, Wacom, here I come to support your monopoly.
I hadn't tried many other styli, but the ones I had tried have left me exasperated and frustrated so quickly, I discarded them within the first on or two days of trying to use them. But Griffin's stylus is different. It works. It works so well, I forget all the difficulty I used to have in trying to use a stylus instead of my finger. Unlike some defective products, the Griffin does not require so much pressure it defeats the purpose. Some styli work better [I won't say "well"] for iPad but not so much for iPhone, and some are the opposite. The Griffin stylus works equally well on both my iPhone 4 and my iPad 3G.
If there was anything that needed to be changed about this stylus, it is only the thickness of the barrel. Some may also find the length a bit lacking. I suspect that both are necessary in order to promote conductivity from the hand through the stylus to the device screen, and attempts at making them larger have likely been unsuccessful. I believe, though, that before long, that barrier will be broken and this 99/100 rating will be revised.
In the meantime, do not hesitate to purchase the most impressive stylus available.
