Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus Review

The Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus is a pressure-sensitive iPad stylus from arguably THE foremost maker of digital styluses and drawing tablets. They had previously released the Bamboo iPad Stylus to good reviews, but the CS is the first iPad tool from Wacom to feature pro features, design, and connectivity. It was not the first pressure-sensitive stylus to be released to the market, but with the company's reputation for great art pens, this stylus was highly anticipated.

I personally don't think the CS produced anything groundbreaking or new compared to the few other pressure-sensitive styluses that have been produced so far, but it is solid and performs well. It stands its ground against its competition and is one of the best styluses you'll find in the market so far.

Jot Touch 4 Revew

Adonit's Jot styluses are consistently among my favorite pens for the iPad. The great design, solid construction, and innovative pen tips make them a pleasure to use.

The Jot Touch 4 is their current high-end model with all the latest tricks (pressure sensitivity, palm rejection, Bluetooth 4). It is my current favorite on the market and here's why.

Jot Pro Review

Adonit launched their Jot styluses on Kickstarter in 2011, and I have one of the first-generation Jot Pros from backing the project. The company has since gone on to improve the design and create other models, such as the pressure sensitive Jot Touch.

The Jot Pro, though it lacks the bluetooth capabilities of its higher end counterpart, is still a wonderful stylus in its own right. If you're looking for a stylus alternative that doesn't cost you $80+, you might want to give this one a go. The ballpoint pen-like tip with the plastic disk is truly unique among the major stylus competitors and offers better accuracy and experience than the typical rubber nibs out there.

Wacom Bamboo iPad Stylus Review

The Wacom Bamboo iPad Stylus is one of the top styluses I always recommend. It is well designed, feels great, and is not super expensive.

Super pros might prefer to get a fancy pressure-sensitive stylus, but if you're looking for something simple and good, this is the stylus to get. I even like it better than Wacom's high-end counterpart, the Intuos Creative Stylus (you can read why in that review).

I love drawing on my iPad. I love trying out different apps. I have a massive collection of styluses.

So… I decided to put up this website to collect all my thoughts, advice, and reviews. I'm going to work on reviewing all the different styluses and apps I've tried, plus some demos and tutorials.

And to introduce myself, I am Dani Jones. I work as an illustrator making things like children's books and comics. I've posted a bunch of iPad stuff previously on my main blog.

And oh yeah… I also wrote this book, which is the seed that started this entire website.
