Amazon has the Pencil by FiftyThree smart digital stylus for iPad for $39.95 shipped in black graphite aluminum and $49.95 shipped in Walnut. This represents a savings of up to 20% off the regular price, and matches our Black Friday mention. The Pencil by FiftyThree is rated 4.1/5 stars by over 600 Amazon users and was also one of our top holiday picks for this season.
Supported by a number of apps and updated frequently, Pencil by FiftyThree allows artists, designers, or just anybody to sketch and take hand written notes directly on an iPad. Along with eraser functionality on the back end, it features surface pressure, blending modes, and adaptive palm rejection technology to allow users to rest their hand on the display comfortably.
I’ve been using the Pencil by FiftyThree for about a month now and have really enjoyed its functionality. When accompanied with the Paper app for iOS the opportunities to create, design and draw feel endless. The feel of the stylus in combination with the tools in the app offer a realistic experience, especially seeing the ink and pencil combine on screen. It’s a nice update to a stylus market that lacks imagination and excitement.
