The TruGlide Apex stylus is the second iPad stylus I have tried that features a fine point tip. The other was the Jot Script by Adonit. Unlike most fat-tipped tablet styluses you'll find on the market, the TruGlide stylus has a tiny 2.3 mm tip that makes it feel more like a regular pen.
The technology that makes this possible is a powered electrical signal that detects the pen tip on the iPad screen. That means the pen needs a battery, and you have to turn it on for it to work. For the most part, the TruGlide worked well, but there were a few bugs. Read on for the full review!
The Jot Script is the first major iPad stylus to feature a fine point tip. No squishy rubber. No awkward plastic disks. No kidding.
I honestly didn't think it was possible with current iPad technology to create a stylus with a true pen-like drawing tip. The Jot Script has proven me wrong. The stylus comes from Adonit, known for their Jot Pro and Jot Touch styluses. Those models feature a ballpoint pen-like tip with a plastic disk attached to the end, which made them pretty accurate compared to their competition. The Jot Script takes the innovation even further, ridding of the disk altogether. It uses an electronic signal instead of plastic to communicate the "finger" touch on the iPad screen. But is it too good to be true? Does it perform as advertised?
