    Creative digital tool to write and draw

    Posted

    This is an intriguing tool to utilize the ability to write and draw as if you're sketching on a regular paper or notepad. I have played around with the Apple Pencil in store and was impressed by it's ability to be so precise and it's pressure control. This Logitech Crayon is a nice tool, but more for a youthful audience. I liked the fact that it's easy to hold and write/draw. Unfortunately I wasn't a fan of the lack of pressure control to make a thin line or a thick line. It gave a nice way to show my child's creativity and allow her to draw free hand or scribble things. I do like how this Crayon is able to allow you to draw when your hand is resting on the screen and palm is touching the screen. It has a lock out style feature that recognizes your hand is resting on the screen while you're writing. I think this is an ideal tool / crayon for a child from 5 - 13 years old maybe. Older than that I would think an actual Apple Pencil may be a better tool for precision and drawing. It's a very cool idea and very useful to allow creative thinking and expression of thought. Useful, creative, and fun to play with.

    While the Logitech pencil does not have all the bells and whistles that an Apple pencil does (which I use with my iPad Pro 12.9 2nd edition), it certainly does more than expected at about half the price. I use it on my regular iPad for sketching and it is more than adequate, especially since I would not be too upset if I lose it.

    Okay, so at first I was skeptical. However after realizing how much easier it makes things to write, especially for me, a left hander, this thing is great. I'm able to make quick sketches with measurements when working on construction projects, and I'm able to do quick corrections on photos due to the pin point accuracy of the pencil it makes things so much better and efficient.

    Got this on sale, and it seems to me that it performs as well as the overpriced Apple Pencil, at least for my needs. Let's face it , if you are needing to take notes, draw, or just navigate thru your IPad, this does essentially the same job at a much lower cost. The technology is virtually the same, & you can even replace the tip ( if ever needed ) with the apple pencil tips. Great job Logitech!

    I have used this stylus with an iPad for several weeks. It takes notes and even draws without lag, and with great precision. It lacks the pressure sensitivity of the Apple Pencil, but I have found that I have not missed that feature. Well worth purchasing.

    Handiest item I have ever purchased for an iPad. Whether you play games, draw, or sign documents this makes things so easy. The only minor complaint I have is that the on/off/charge led is covered by my thumb when turning it on and off. Just have to hold it differently.

    Fancy stylus This little guy doesn't have pressure sensitivity, so heads up. It does have tilt support, which lets you adjust line weight depending on the angle you're drawing at. Also, palm rejection goes a long way toward how much you'll like writing on your iPad. With a wireless connection of up to 7 hours, you can do a lot so go for it.

    A cost effective alternative

    This colorful tool for the iPad (6th Generation) is an inexpensive alternative to the Apple Pencil without sacrificing any of the quality. I was so happy to find out that it is compatible with nearly all apps that are Apple Pencil enabled making it easy to use right out of the box. I personally really like the grip that the Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil offers providing a sleek, triangular shape. The pencil for me allows me to edit very detailed aspects of photos, and I find myself using the pencil for even writing lists as it is more convenient when brainstorming or writing quick reminders. In addition when drawing, coloring or any other detail-oriented task, the Logitech Crayon allows you to rest your palm on the surface of your iPad without you having to worry about "smearing" or disrupting your creation! The Crayon also works just as a real writing instrument would with the ability to make the lines thicker or thinner with just a slight tilt. Overall, I find this to be a wonderful budget-friendly alternative for any iPad (6th Generation) owner.

    This is a stylus, a really nice stylus with some extra features, but essentially just a stylus. It's designed to lay flat, you can adjust line width; how well depends on the app that you are using it with. Battery life is as advertised. I'd give it 5 stars, but the advertising makes it look cooler than what it really is. It's still you drawing that picture or painting it in, it just makes doing that easier. I'd say it's better used for productivity than creativity (in my case at least) and does make markups easier on documents. If your old enough to remember having to use a pen to compose and correct you work, then this will make some tasks on the tablet more comfortable.

    I recently purchased an iPad for my wife. Her number one request was the pencil so she could draw. Unfortunately I could not afford the Apple Pencil so I picked up the Logitech Crayon until we could spring for one. Great news the Logitech Crayon is fantastic. Although it's not shaped like atracitional pencil, it's very easy to use and comfortable to hold. One great feature is how long the Crayon goes in between charges. The Crayon is such a great addition to her iPad. I'm very happy we picked it up

    Wonderful accessory for the 6th Generation iPad

    Shaped like a carpenter's pencil, this CRAYON fits perfectly in my fingers allowing for the wrist movement needed to create great sketches and renderings. The CRAYON can replicate the markings of crayons, pen & ink, water coloring, markers, sharpie, etc. freely and easily because the CRAYON works at all angles and interacts well with the functions of the iPad. The CRAYON works only with the 2018 iPad Generation 6. As of now, it does not work with iPad pro. However, with the 2018 Generation 6 iPad it is a must to have. I love the shape. My father was a known craftsman builder and I have been writing with pencils this shape since before grade school. The action and results of the CRAYON is much like another window based stand-alone sketching pad and pencil that I have often used in the past. I also like the fact that this product is free and simple, and not attached to anything. It's powered by a battery charge, but otherwise it simply works just like an actual pen or pencil. Using the apple technology of the iPad pencil (which I also regularly use) the CRAYON is unlike the Pencil in that no pairing is necessary. Instead of pairing the CRAYON to the iPad, you simply turn it on. With the Generation 6 iPad, the connection and response time is immediate. It's very simple to charge, and it is very well designed with all necessary working and charging parts contained within itself. This aspect of the design is another plus in that there is nothing to keep up with but the CRAYON itself. I have not had the opportunity to use the CRAYON for seven straight hours in one charging, but the specifications state this to be a feature. I have used the CRAYON several times throughout the day and have not had any issues with it not retaining the charge. It also seems to have a rapid charge and I do charge it daily. I recommend this product and feel it a great choice for someone in business who sketches a lot, and the best choice for K-12 users.

    Great idea but more comparability needed.

    The Logitech crayon is an awesome concept. It works just as you would expect it to. It offers precise drawing or navigating, tilts functionality, and palm rejection technology just like the apple pencil. I actually prefer the feel of the crayon because it has more grip and not completely round. It is easy to charge and also does not take extremely long to charge. I also like how you can plug the charger in unlike the apple pencil which needs an adapter. The biggest downfall to this device is its compatibility. Currently it is only able to be used with one iPad which is a huge downfall for users of the PRO line that would like to use it as well. Overall if this is compatible with your iPad I would highly recommend it.

    My family and I love this Logitech Digital Pencil. From the start I was very impressed because it pairs up with your IPad immediately, I wish more products would have the same capability. We also noticed immediately how durable it feels, unlike some of the other stylus out there. To me this is very important if you are going to have your kids use it as well. It is very responsive and accurate with writing, which is why we primarily got it. My son and daughter also love how it feels like an actual pencil. They love drawing and coloring with it. Overall, I think this digital pencil is very versatile and fun for the whole family. We also loved that it stayed charged for a good 7 hours and it recharges very quickly. I would highly recommend this Logitech digital pencil if you are looking for something durable and easy to use.

    A Digital Pencil for the Rest of Us

    Posted

    When I first opened up the package for the Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil for the iPad, I was a little put off by the orange rubber cap and stylus tip shroud. I was used to the smooth and solid feel of the Apple Pencil. However, after spending some time with the Crayon, I quickly became comfortable with the grip and feel of the rubbery touch for my fingertips while also providing a firm aluminum grip of the body. Combined with the flattened shape, which prevents it from rolling off the desk, I soon fell in love with the comfortable feel of this digital pencil. Aside from the comfort of this device, it is a solid contender for the digital pencil space for the iPad. I always grumble a little when my iPad forgets about the Apple Pencil, and I have to plug it into the iPad slot for pairing. This is not the case with the Crayon. Just turn it on, and the iPad automatically connects via Bluetooth. However, you do have to make sure to un-pair the Apple Pencil if you want to use the Crayon. Charging of the Crayon is a breeze. Lift the orange cap and plug a standard iPad charging cable into it. Mine took around 20 minutes to charge fully. If you need a quick charge to hold you for approximately 30 minutes, you can plug it in for a couple minutes for a quick boost. The battery life is around 7 hours, which is 5 hours less than the Apple Pencil. That being said, you can turn off the Crayon to make it last longer. You can't do that with the Apple Pencil. Personally, I like being able to charge the Crayon with a cable. I'm always fearful of snapping the connector off the end of the Apple Pencil or worse - destroying the connector in the iPad itself. The Crayon is just as precise as the Apple Pencil when it comes to drawing and writing. It supports palm pressure cancellation, which is an absolute requirement for me. While it does not support stylus tip pressure for ink flow, and other painting options, it does support tilt for thicker lines. I tested mine with Pixelmator, Paper, GoodNotes, Linea Sketch, and OneNote without any problems. The precision was just as good as the Apple Pencil us and I'm not a graphic artist who needs the stylus tip pressure support. If you're a professional digital artist, I would say stick with the Apple Pencil, especially if you're already used to the stylus tip pressure support. For the rest of us, I highly recommend the Logitech Crayon. At a lower price point with a quality feel and a comparable precision, this is a deal hard to pass up. Pros . Palm Pressure support . Quick charging . Does not roll off the desk . Microlight status indicator . Can turn it off when not using . Automatically pairs with the iPad . Tilt support for thicker lines . Comfortable to grip and use . The tip is just as precise as the Apple Pencil . $30 cheaper than the Apple Pencil Cons . Stylus tip pressure not supported . Shorter battery life than the Apple Pencil . Requires a cable for charging . Requires 2018 or newer iPad

    The pen for the rest of us

    The Logitech Crayon, while designed for the educational market, is really the apple pencil for the rest of us. By that I mean non-creative/drawing uses. Not that the Crayon can't draw, it certainly can, and features tilt sensitivity, It does lack pressure sensitivity, which would be a deal breaker to any serious artist. If you can get past this limitation, in some ways it's more Apple than the Pencil. So what sets the Crayon apart other than its lack of the pressure sensitivity feature? Well for one, the charging cover is attached (hurray! @@@@@@@ so you won't lose it. On that same note, the charger is a female lighting jack, so you'ren't forced to have it sticking out from your iPad in an awkward way (or feel like you'll break your lighting port on your iPad or the Pencil). I can't imagine being in a scenario where the Pencil's ability to plug directly into the iPad helps charge it on the go as between battery banks and lighting charging cables it's hard to be without a way to charge. The Crayon's ability to just use any old lighting power cord is a god-send. Another great feature of its physical design is the material. Not only does the aluminum feel solid and welcome in your hand, but it also feel super sturdy, unlike the Pencil. I feel like the Pencil could easily be snapped, while the Crayon feels like it could handle some serious mayhem. Furthermore the fact the body isn't a cylinder, but is more rectangular keeps it from rolling away. The color scheme might throw some off, but honestly I like the orange combo w/ the aluminum as it helps it stand out just enough without being gaudy. The top cover is a silicon and actually does come off (and is replaceable), but it does take some effort to remove. The tip is also replaceable, and requires a specific tool to remove the tip. This is a nod to its educational roots, where small hands might remove the tip and make it disappear. It actually is preferred in my use case as well, as my children would and have unscrewed my Pencil's tip before. There is one button on the top that powers the Crayon on, and has an LED that shows the status. Another note: the Crayon auto powers off after 30 minutes. You're supposed to be able to get 7 hours of usage out of it, and I doubt I'll push that limit much and it's cinch to charge. Now how does it write? Quite well. It feels a lot like the Pencil in my ham hands with excellent tracking. Just like the Pencil, it works in the OS natively (swiping on the home screen, through web pages, and notating screen shots). Unfortunately I can confirm that it only works with the iPad 6th gen. My daughter's 5th gen doesn't work, and my iPad Pro 10.5" doesn't work either. However the 6th gen iPad it works right away without any pairing. This is probably where the Crayon is most impressive, as it 'just works' as they say (I had a bad Pencil when I first got my Pro and it did not 'just work'). Tilt sensitivity seems to be on point (pun intended), and allows basic sketches to turn out quite nice when using it for shading. I'm no artist, but I was able to draw relatively well with the Crayon. Unlike some other pens, it doesn't have a native eraser feature or button, but neither does the Pencil, so no huge loss there. My primary use case besides just being curious about Logitech's foray into near first party Apple accessory land is to give my small children a stylus they can really express themselves with. They're both small, with my son pushing 4 and my daughter just 2. They both need supervision when using the Crayon, but I feel much better about them using this rather than my Pencil. They both enjoy drawing on the iPad - and I enjoy them not using actual crayons on the floor (which they still do, but a father can dream right? @@@@@@@ . I like that the Crayon just turns on and writes. The strong physically design makes me worry less about my son cracking the Pencil in half and potentially causing an injury. In my testing and writing though, I found myself actually enjoying the feel of the Crayon over the Pencil (it's a bit more chunky), and wished it worked on the iPad Pro. If the next generation does indeed support this more passive pen, I may just sell my current pro and Pencil and get the Crayon. That said I'm no artistic professional, but I do annotate screenshots, documents, and draw some POCs. In these scenarios, I don't miss the pressure sensitivity. Tracking was excellent, on par with my experience with the Surface Pen and Pencil on their respective devices. That said, again I'm no artist, but I'm sensitive to lag, of which I did not detect. The only thing I found myself wanting was a pen clip, either to somehow secure it to the iPad or another surface. All in all the Crayon is an excellent stylus for the iPad 6th gen. I wish it worked on more iPad's, but hopefully future iPad iterations will support it natively just like the 6th gen. I don't think you can go wrong if you're in the market for a stylus for the 6th gen iPad, as the Pencil is most likely overkill for you on the iPad (let's be honest, if you're buying an iPad for creative work, the Pro is definitely the better fit). Combine with the fact that it's cheaper, it's hard to make a case for the Pencil over the Crayon. This is an excellent product.
