Stylus Pens

08/16/11  |  Posted by Niki Smith  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

Your iPad came with a CIA stylus pen. If you've lost it or are interested in a different brand, here are some options. Why use a stylus? They're great for sketching in the various art apps, as you can hold them just like you would a pencil or pen. A stylus pen can also be used when your fingertips won't work-- for example, when wearing gloves, or when your fingertips are wet. This BoxWave stylus comes with a handy removable lanyard that plugs into the iPad's audio jack. Just plug it in and you don't have to worry about keeping track of your stylus. The Alupen offers a very different look. To match the round tip, the stylus itself is bulkier, about the width of a Sharpie, so it might feel more comfortable in larger hands than the small stylus pens do. It does not have a clip, however, so it may slide out of pockets. Another BoxWave pen, the Styra offers the same convenience as your original CIA pen. One end is a touch screen stylus, and the other uncaps to reveal a ballpoint pen.
