Good advice. Thanks!!I can confirm that I bought a Pogo Sketch at an Apple Store.
Be persistent though- the first sales rep that I asked didn't know what I was talking about. The next guy did, and went to the back and got me one.
Oh no doubt. I don't plan to use it much... just when taking notes or maybe letting my daughter use it on the 'draw' applications too.Ah yes. Potentially. I couldn't imagine trying to use it around the entire OS though, I feel like it would slow things down.
Wow this is a great tidbit of info to keep in mind if I ever consider getting one. How much does the Apple Store charge though? I can get one on eBay for $10-12 shipped, so if it's much more expensive I'd rather just order it. Also, I have to look up some more detailed reviews. If I got one, it would be for taking written notes, and I've heard you have to press very hard for it to register properly, and it doesn't feel anywhere near as natural as using a pen.I saw this thread and went into an Apple store today and sure enough, they had them in the back. I am using it with SketchBook Pro.
Not according to the reviews on that product page.....Instead of Pogo stylus, you can try the icooly stylus, which it has a stronger construction and better accuracy :
Have to respond here because I too am looking for a stylus so as to take old-fashioned notes on PenUltimate or PaperDesk in meetings in lieu of pad and paper and sadly here's the verdict:Note taking apps... like MyPaperDesk or PenUltimate
I think it will help me when trying to draw something, etc.
Have you tried Note Taker HD? It resolves the problem of letters wanting to be too big. I could still do with sorting out the lag issue but if PenUltimate can do it, I'm sure the other will sort it out as well.The letters want to be too big, the stylus has accuracy issues, and there is a latency that makes it feel like you're writing a second behind what you are actually are writing.
LOL! Yeah, they pulled out both the pink one and the silver one, and I was like, nah, I'll take the silver. LOLI can +1 about picking up a stylus @ the Apple store. You do have to get someone to call for it from the back. They come in silver or pink, and go for $14.99 each. I picked up two and plan to give them a spin later on Sketchbook pro. The only wait I had to do was trying to get someone to wait on me,which is a little shorter than mail order... but not by much.
Most Apple stores carry the Pogo Sketch, they usually keep it in the back and you will have to ask for it.
This sounds exactly like the kind of stuff you tell the new guy on his first day on the job when you send him off to go find the non-existent tool that everyone knows is a joke you play on the new guy. Like when you send the new cadet off to get a bucket of prop wash or a 100' spool of flight line. "They keep it in the back. You'll have to ask for it. They'll act like they don't know what you're talking about, but just keep after 'em..."Be persistent though- the first sales rep that I asked didn't know what I was talking about. The next guy did, and went to the back and got me one.
