    Not a Precision Tool but OK for Note-Taking

    I bought this pen about a month ago and I'm happy with it (please refer to the next paragraph if you're an artist). The main reason I thought about getting a stylus is that I have to work on an iPad mini and the buttons on the app I use are very small. Even though my fingers are not very big, I would end up losing a lot of time by tapping on the wrong option and this pen has helped a lot. I also have to take a fair amount of notes and I was doing this with my finger; it gets a bit annoying after a while. The tip of this stylus is not fully aligned on the tablet's surface but I have learned to compensate for this issue and it works just fine. I have not charged it yet, even though I've been using it for about 12 to 15 days (turning it on and off constantly throughout the day). I have to see how the charging thing goes and will be updating you on this later. Recommended for taking notes and stuff that really doesn't have to be extremely precise (again, once you learn to compensate for the alignment). DO NOT BUY IF YOU'RE AN ARTIST!! Invest in something that will enhance your skills. I have doodled on the BAMBOO PAPER app and I regret to inform you (from an amateur doodler/artist's point of view) that if you're planning on doing detailed drawings, you're going to have to spend more money on a stylus pen that is made specifically for your craft. Minor design flaws that can get a bit old for some people after a while: The BAMBOO logo has disappeared because of the friction from taking it in and out of my pocket but I don't really care about that. If they want their logo to stay on, maybe they can think about engraving it on the pen but that's Wacom's issue, not mine. Also, it has a massive amount of space between the pen and the clip to secure it so you better have a thick surface for it to grab on to, otherwise, it will dance all over the place or fall constantly. I would recommend to a friend, unless they are artists. Hope this was helpful!

    Good for fine selection, not good for art

    Overall, I was glad that this was compatible with my computer and my smart-phone, and that it allowed for fine selection. It was really useful for texting and for certain apps, as well as certain games. It was far more convenient to use than my fingertips. However, when I tried using it in photoshop, I wasn't able to use it with the lasso tool. This device doesn't seem appropriate for when you need to select something and drag it, or at least in photoshop. It was not useful for drawing blueprints. The tip also comes loose a little too easily, and it got lost in my car early on. This stylus is great for getting the basic job done, and is a pretty good stylus to default to if you don't need something more specific. The average consumer will benefit from it, whereas a person looking to make a more serious investment should look into getting some of the more famous name brand products that push the technological envelope.

    It does what it says.

    This stylus is an interesting idea and does what it claims. If you are attempting to use this with a touch screen laptop this is not for you however. For a matter of fact this stylus does work with any touch screen device. It works rather well on Android devices, I don't know how it will perform with Apple devices. On a windows touch screen laptop however the pointer is inconsistent and sometimes will not be detected. That sounds worse than it really is. Ultimately the screen response to the stylus is 98% accurate. I don't think I would recommend this product as while it accomplishes the goal it claims there are other styluses out there that are far better for less. My personal favorite is the Adonit Jot Pro 3 that you can find for approximately $30. Pros: This device has a premium build quality and works well with Android devices. Cons: The price, it takes two hours to charge, and this device barely works with Windows touch screen laptops.

    Never paired with ipad

    The bamboo tip I purchased never paired with my iPad. I downloaded all the bamboo apps because one of the men at our Best Buy told me it would work with my iPad 5th generation. I should have checked to see if it would pair before I did that. I returned it and am not sure which stylus will work with my iPad for sure so I haven’t replaced it yet. So sad! I could get it to write but I was concerned it wouldn’t work correctly with all the apps I purchased that’s why I returned it.

    This is a 5 star item. But one fault makes it a three in m book. The tips can dislodge and get lost. Not for rough handling or field work and entry. Aside from that ONE issue, this pen makes smooth fast work for me as a note taker that prefers electronic from the pen/paper choice. Worked on a Surface pro 3 and an android tablet. If that one issue was resolvable, I would give it 5 stars.

    I bought this stylus a week ago and had to return it because the tip fell out. The 2nd one I currently have also has had the same issue, however I found the tip and put it back in. I'm not sure what the issue is but if it happens again, I will return it and find an alternative. It does work with the IPad mini 4 when the tip stays in.

    I needed something to better pinpoint where on the screen I was tapping. This seems very hit or miss. It doesn't always respond so it makes it more of an aggravation than a help. I have tried to follow the instructions to make it function with my Galaxy tablet, but it stubbornly remains quirky at best. Great idea, but short on delivery.

    The stylus felt great but there was a little bit of a delay when using the stylus with an IPad. Spec sheet showed it should work with iPad mini 2. Again felt great but a little to much latency for my liking. Worked better on an Android interface.

    Pen has a sleek look, feels good in hand weight is appropriate. I found that it worked slow with my tablet Samsung galaxy tab A 10.1. It didnt recognize touch as well as I would have thought it to, a regular stylus works better in my opinion. I bought both at same time.

    Nice item. Does not transmit full data. At times it picks up half letters rather than full writing. This is not a CPU issue as I can write with my finger and the CPU captures it more accurately. Can't find the box to exchange. Disappointed but not a total waste.

    Unfortunately we do not have a newer iPad so this pen did not work like we needed it to. However, it does work and it comes with apps. The style of pen is lovely and would work great for stylus jobs and taking notes.

    I didn't like much the precision of this stylus. I used with an iPad 2018 version. The stylus make some noise and the point part comes out easily. I returned the product before loosing this part.

    It does a decent job, but the bluetooth doesn't get that much bang on my ipad. Perhaps it is because it isn't the latest generation. I'm better off with my simple Jot stylus.

    I was looking for an Samsung Tab S4 stylus and was told this would work but it doesn't always work. Just have to make sure I only buy a Samsung stylus.

    Spoiled by Surface Pen

    Bought for my iPad. Am spoiled by the fluidity and accuracy of the surface pen. While it does work, it's certainly not the surface pen. Would only recommend if the price was unbeatable.

    I was looking for a stylus to use with my touch screen laptop to color on different apps. This was ok but I get I expected more for being inexperienced with them.

    Unfortunately, Apple pencil is not compatible with older iPad models. This certainly works, but not with the same precision or functionality of Apple Pencil

    WE PURCHASED THIS FOR MY SON'S TABLET. IT DID NOT DRAW WELL ON THE TABLET, AND THE LINES LOOKED SQUIGGLY. IT DID WORK WELL ON OUR GALAXY S-7 EDGE.
