Elago Slim Stylus for the iPad

Post by Mark

If you own an iPad you’ve most probably already downloaded Draw Something or Paper by FiftyThree. If you haven’t all you need to know is that they are two very popular apps right now that involve drawing. The regular way to draw on the iPad is using your fingertips but you can also use a stylus for a more natural feel.

I searched Xcite, Office Depot and Blink and ended up going for the Elago Slim Stylus from Blink. I thought from all the models I checked, the Elago stylus looked like something Apple would have designed themselves. The stylus weighs enough to feel comfortable and is made of metal but has a rubber tip. It also comes with an extra rubber tip in case you damage one for some reason.

Drawing with a stylus is a lot easier than drawing with a finger obviously. I won’t show you how my drawings improved using the stylus because I can’t draw for shit with or without the stylus. But it really does make a difference and if you’re having difficulty drawing properly with your fingers or if you’re serious about illustrating on the iPad then getting a stylus is a must. Their prices range from around KD3 and upwards. The stylus I got cost me KD7.250 which is very reasonable and just KD2 more expensive than amazon. It’s definitely worth getting a stylus.

    Bamboo Stylus is wayyy better for writing (dunno about Drawing) due to its slightly thinner tip

      Bamboo stylus was the one i originally wanted but I couldn’t find it in Kuwait and for the same price of shipping to Kuwait you could buy another pen. I guess if you are super serious about illustrating on the ipad its worth paying that much for it.

    good choice buying this stylus… I’m using the same one and it’s one of the best you can buy… Paper by fifty three is great app but if you want to have a better drawing experience try Sketchbook pro for iPad, Adobe Ideas or Sketch club.
