So I just ordered the Pencil by FiftyThree (same company that brought us Paper, the app). The reviews from the last few days look great, and I am really excited. I would never consider trading my iOS tablet (currently a rMini) for a Microsoft surface, but I will admit that I have been jealous of the stylus that comes with the surface pro models. After reading the reviews and looking into the Pencil, I discovered that the creators are actually ex-Microsoft employees who worked on the Courier project a few years ago, etc. I was also considering the Adonit Jot Script stylus that was just released, but the reviews seem mixed and even lean towards the worse end of the spectrum. I have also been recommend the Livescribe 3, but the price and the fact that it needs a normal paper notebook to function were a turn off. I will report back with my experience when my Pencil arrives. Until then, if anyone has experience with the Pencil stylus, feel free to chime in.
