With all this talk lately of smaller and lighter iPads, you have to stop and wonder why someone would create a shell that makes the current iPad not only bigger, but heavier. Yet that's exactly what Documont has done with the Kowala, an iPad lapboard for artists and workers alike -- and it's surprisingly good, too.
Serenity Caldwell has tested a lot of styluses. (And we mean a lot.) Now she's pitting them head-to-head in a series of challenges. In the latest installment, she looks at which stylus is the best for sketching and drafting.
Perhaps no tool will make artists feel more at home on the iPad than the Hand Glider, a lightweight sleeve for your wrist and pinky that prevents your skin from triggering multitouch gestures or wayward marks while using a stylus. By outward appearance alone, the glove looks a little silly, but its function far outweighs its design quirks.

Adonit's Jot Touch may be the best iPad stylus yet, although the way the apps handle its pressure-sensitivity data could use some work.
Paper, created by design studio Fiftythree, may be one of my favorite drawing apps ever to grace the iPad. But sadly the app as-is has a few major flaws that make it exceedingly frustrating to work with.
