Top Tool of 2012

Among all our posts about app tools, one post was the clear favorite among our readers–a round up of the best iPad stylus brands.

To help iPad writers prepare, we’ve rounded up stylus recommendations from different review publications.

In the video embedded above, you can see one stylus in action. Check it out: “You may have been hearing good things about Bluetooth 4.0. It’s a fast wireless connection, and is fully supported by the CoreBluetooth framework in iOS5. Bluetooth 4.0 devices don’t need to pair with your iPhone or iPad, they just connect and work. Also, the battery life is dramatically better – think months or a year on a single coin battery. We’ve developed the first pressure-sensitive stylus for iPad that uses Bluetooth 4.0.”
