Griffin stylus-5

With both Sketchpad Pro HD and Autodesk’s SketchBook Pro installed on my new iPad3, it was time to test drive a stylus. Griffin sent me a stylus in Poppy to check out, along with an IntelliCase.

I realize that Steve Jobs was opposed to a stylus being married to any Apple digital tablet, however I view sketching apps as the exception.

The Griffin stylus is meant for both left and right handed writers and artists. As a southpaw, the stylus felt very comfortable in my left hand as I proceeded to work within both sketch apps.

I haven’t worked with photography or game apps yet, but the stylus is ideal for any situation that requires more precision and control than your finger. It can be used on any iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or onscreen device.

The stylus also comes in a range of bright and fun colours: White, Desert Pink, Blazin’ Yellow, Pool Blue, Leaf, Poppy, Peacock, Violet, and Black.

The stylus and its soft rubber tip are solidly constructed, with an integrated clip for attaching it to a bag pocket’s pencil loop, which many laptop and accessory bags currently have.

Would it benefit from a cover or small sleeve to carry it around? I will have to take it out and see how well it wears in order to know the answer to that one. For now, it’s a small, easily portable stylus that will be great for what I got it for: sketching and taking notes.

Griffin’s stylus retails for US $19.99.

I was sent the Griffin stylus for the purpose of writing this review. Opinions, as always, are my own.
