Wacom bamboo stylus fineline
This is the first stylus that’s really grabbed Christian’s attention
I’ve used styluses since the iPad came out in 2010, but I’ve never really been comfortable with, or particularly impressed by, any of them. I found myself using them for a short while and always reverted back to fingers. I have small fingers, so getting a reasonable level of accuracy was never a problem. I hadn’t seen the point of using a stylus with an iPad until this one landed on our office desks. Months later, I’m glad it did!
When we reviewed in back in MF282, we rated it with four stars and praised its (1,024) levels of sensitivity. That’s actually half of the slightly more expensive Wacom Creative Stylus 2, but the real world difference is hardly noticable. What you get for just £50 is a very accurate and sensitive stylus that, for me at least, was the first where I appreciated what you could do with notes and sketches on the iPad.
The design is just right, too. It’s everything you would expect from a stylus trying to resemble the weight and balance of a wdecent pen. With the cap on or off, you really can’t tell the difference sometimes! Since the Fineline’s release, more supported apps have been added. You can now write or draw in some of the App Store’s best, such as ArtRage, Astropad, Noteshelf, Pixelmator and various Adobe apps.
