If you love your iPad but your finger is too cumbersome to be precise when you write or draw, then have a look at the GoSmart Stylus. This handy little pen-like gadget lets you create on your tablet with the same precision as pen on paper. Artists will like it because it allows you to work well with pressure-sensitive apps to make thicker or thinner lines. The Teflon-coated metal tip quietly glides on the iPad or other touchscreen for clear and accurate visibility, offering a precise touch unimpeded by the clunky foam or plastic discs that make most other styluses annoying. Unlike plastic styluses, you won’t hear tapping, which is a key feature for silently taking notes during lectures and meetings.
If you’re not sure about this, look at the demo video son the company’s web site. It’s pretty convincing. It works on any touch-sensitive screen, including tablets and smartphones. And it comes in two styles.
