After months of contemplating, I finally put one on order and tried it.
I love the feel of the device, and the idea behind it—but I hate how it works. It's laggy, buggy, and overwhelmingly a bummer. (Even my 7-year-old told me that he thought it was "badly designed" after he used it for 10 minutes.)
Someday they'll get it right—I'd bet on that. And I do appreciate how hard they're working to build a clean, simple, great experience. I just don't think they've got this one right, yet. So, for now, this one goes back to 53. (Styluses 3; karj 0.)
I'm just sharing this, as I read something like 10,000,000,000 reviews before buying. Maybe it saves you a moment.
What is a 53 pencil?
I got 3 iPad styli for £5 in a bargain store, a pink one, a black one and a blue one. my biggest disappointment is only having two hands.
also what app are you using for drawing? im sure that makes a difference too.. ProCreate is the shit.
The think they all suffer from is the huge nib/hit area. I know it's built for a fingertip, but they should have an option to reduce the hit area to the size of your stylus tip if that's what you're using.
the fact that the 53 pencil doesnt have an undo button is ridiculous. the feature alone is what makes using those digital styluses the most useful. having to do some convoluted finger gesture or hunt for an undo button on the screen every time you make a shitty line is retarded. the design team should be fired. i award them no points and may god have mercy upon their souls.
I didn't like the jot touch. Still can't find a good stylus for the ipad with a fine tip.
