GoSmart Stylus: See What You're Doing (Black Friday Offer)

By Joan Sherwood, Sr.Ed.

GoSmart, Inc. offers an innovative stylus that uses Capacitive Coupling Technology in the form of conductive wire configured like crosshairs on a coil, which allows you to see exactly where your lines are going. The wire is sturdy and bends to a range of angles to fit your writing style. On the side are two rare earth magnets, which can secure the stylus to an iPad 2 (untested) or other magnetic surface.

The stylus comes in two styles: the rocket ship shape of the 300 Series, and the more pen-like look of the 200 Series. I was pleased with the feel and weight of the metal barrel, but the choice of cap colors (red, blue, black, white) is a little “meh.” I tried it with a variety of art and note-taking apps on an original model iPad, and while my aristic skills may be lacking (below), the stylus’ performance was not.
