    If you’re having problems with your Adonit Jot capacitive touch stylus or Hex3 Jaja, you can improve its performance and reliability with careful application of thermal paste! For more on this, check out my capacitive touch stylus how-to fix-it guide. Months later (Sep 2013), my styli are still performing great!

Apple iOS device accessories for iPhone, iPad, etc

These are a few accessories for Apple products that I really like. Using these links to Amazon helps support this blog and helps me keep cool content and reviews coming! If you have a question about any product listed here, please ask away!

From time to time, I’ll add new items and if/when I find a better alternative, replace the listing. I’m going to try implementing a 1-100 rating for products as well.

Artists, if you’re looking for a great, accurate iPad stylus, check out the oStylus DOT! It is currently my favorite stylus — it’s far superior to the Jot Pro — and is worth every penny. oStylus capacitive touch styluses are made in Canada by a really nice, talented jeweler named Andrew.

  • Wacom Tech Corp. Bamboo Stylus for iPad/Tablets
    Wacom Tech Corp.

    Wacom’s Bamboo capacitive touch stylus is very good — it’s a high-quality design with replaceable tips and sturdy construction — well worth the added expense over the cheaper, “discount” models available from other companies. It isn’t the fanciest stylus, however, it does work extremely well with all Apple iOS devices, including the iPad mini.

    Many of the smaller tip styli released prior to the iPad mini DO NOT WORK WELL with the mini. Styluses such as the HAND stylus, while very good on the regular, full size iPad, don’t seem to track on the 7” screen. Definitely something to keep in mind!

     
  • X-Stand for iPad Tablet
    Brookstone

    The X-Stand securely holds the iPad and iPad 2, and allows the tablet to be tilted or rotated, so you can fully enjoy that iOS goodness! I like using mine with a wireless bluetooth keyboard in portrait mode, or in landscape mode to watch movies and shows when I’m not feeling well. This clever iPad stand can even accommodate some iPad cases and protective covers. 

    Definitely Bradtastic Approved, and frequently Bradtastic used!

  • Cosmonaut: Wide-Grip Stylus for Capacitive Touch Screens
    Studio Neat

    A fantastic capacitive touch stylus for iPad created by the guys at Studio Neat. Works like a charm — very comfortable for note taking, sketching, outlining. If you’re looking for extreme precision and control, take a look at the oStylus DOT and Adonit Jot Touch pressure sensitive stylus. The Cosmonaut is fantastic for the price.

     
  • HEX3 JaJa Pressure Sensitive Stylus for iPad (all models) and other Tablets
    HEX3

    Another pressure sensitive iPad stylus option, though I don’t think that it’s currently better than the Adonit Jot Touch. This could change, however, if apps support its greater sensitivity, 1024 levels, or add support for it at all. It does have notable strengths — advantages for some: this stylus does NOT use Bluetooth, meaning it will work in airplane mode. Second, it uses a AAA battery for power, and lasts for days upon days, versus the Jot Touch’s 12 hours. Artists constantly on the move and in the air should seriously consider this stylus if you’re only going to get one. 

    The Jaja tip has greater range of movement and can be used at a greater angle than Adonit styli, but I found that at angles beyond 45 degrees, the stylus did not perform reliably. In order to track the Jaja, the iPad needs full, flat contact with the plastic disc. 

     

    Lastly, an interesting tidbit: the Jaja comes with an extra tip, capable of fitting into most 0.7mm mechanical pencils. I’ve tested this with a drafting pencil; it works great — the Jaja tip effectively turns your favorite 0.7mm pencil into a precision stylus!
