WHAT Crayon digital pencil

WHAT IS IT This pixel-precise digital pencil designed for the sixth-generation iPad can be used for everything from writing notes to marking up PDFs.

COST $69.99


WHAT'S HOT While the name is Crayon, it better resembles a metal pen without an ink tip. It really takes the tablet to a new level with how well and precisely you can write notes and work in apps supported by Apple Pencil. This includes drawing, note-taking and working with simple PDFs and Adobe Lightroom and CC.

An internal battery is charged with a Lightning cable and will last for up to 75 hours. When it’s inactive for 30 minutes, Crayon automatically shuts off.

One of the best features has nothing to do with its performance, but its appearance. The 6.5-inch-long Crayon has flatter sides, instead of being round, which is really important to prevent it from rolling off your desk when not in use.

Replacement tips and tip covers are available for purchase.

To adjust how thin or thick you want the Crayon to draw, just tilt it and the width will change. .

There’s no software or setup for the Crayon — just turn it on, and a connection is made.

WHAT'S NOT The Crayon doesn't support pressure sensitivity, thus inhibiting your ability to vary the size of your strokes.
