Stylus Shoot-Out: Finding the best sketching stylus

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.

The Hand Glider is a perfect no-frills solution for palm rejection on the iPad

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.

The Jot Flip stylus/pen combo gets the pen right

The latest addition to Adonit's family of disc styluses for iOS devices, the Jot Flip seeks to fill the stylus/pen niche treasured by those still chained to paper and pen. And while it shares a few stylus flaws with its Adonit siblings, it gets the pen right.

The Hand Stylus is innovative, but not quite worthy of a high-five

Joy Factory styluses are solid, but not exceptional

The Joy Factory's two styluses, the Monet and the DaVinci, offer a taste of the range of nib styluses currently on the market. The Monet is an elongated model that excels for painting, but not much else; the DaVinci is a solid, all-purpose tool, but not the best available.

iFaraday fabric styluses for iOS devices are simple but sturdy

iFaraday's inexpensive line of styluses may not be the flashiest or best touchscreen pens on the market, but they get the job done. Staff editor Serenity Caldwell takes a look at the iFaraday Stylus, Artist Stylus, and RXII.

Jot Mini stylus looks good, but fails to impress

Just Mobile's AluPen Pro is a revamp of the company's original AluPen stylus, adding 2-in-1 functionality in a slimmer package, while keeping the great design ethic.

Architect Stylus builds something great
