Just Mobile made a lot of headlines when it released its thick pencil-shaped all-aluminum stylus a few years ago. And now the company is following up with its brand new take on the powered and so-called smart stylus market with the AluPen Digital. It's a beautifully designed, super-sensitive aluminum hybrid stylus with an extremely fine tip designed to give you that familiar feeling of using a ball-point pen – only with your tablet or smartphone. And the great thing about the AluPen Digital is that it just works. Straight out of the box. Although it is indeed a powered stylus, there's no Bluetooth pairing or proprietary technology involved to limit its functionality so you can use it with virtually any app that's available for iOS and Android devices.

Tangram's Smart Dot is the first smart stylus we got our hands on, and it's really quite extraordinary. Styluses are good at doing one thing and one thing only, replacing your finger. The Smart Dot stylus is a genius little gadget accessory for smartphones that's more than good for sketching, drawing and note taking. It's the first app enhanced stylus we've reviewed. With the help of an app, the Smart Dot serves as a powerful wireless presentation and input device delivering an entirely new user experience regular styluses long for. Sounds impressive, as long as it all works in practice that is. Catch the full review down below!Read More
I'll be the first to admit it. I don't see the point of a stylus. Why use another extraneous accessory when you can just use one that you will always have with you - your finger. Since the launch of the iPad and other tablets and touch devices, the market for stylus accessories have exploded. A while back we took a look at Just Mobile's first generation AluPen... and we loved it. We return today with the AluPen Pro with some noticeable perks over its predecessor. What kind of upgrades did we find? Check out the review after the jump!
Adonit's success came from its unique and truly innovative keyboard case for the iPad and iPad 2 called the Writer. Adonit really broke out with the success of the Writer thanks to Kickstarter, the great way of funding new ideas by the consumers themselves. It would only make sense to create a stylus for such a company that is mainly targeted at the iPad 2. The Jot and Jot Pro stylus are Adonit's latest product that has been successfully funded ahead of schedule thanks to the immense demand of people who loved what the Jot stylus has to offer. We've got a couple of prototypes of both the Jot and Jot Pro to review for you guys ahead of time. so jump past the break for the full review!
