There’s a new Pogo Sketch Plus Stylus coming.
We know a lot of our readers love to ink with a stylus even though iPad isn’t optimized for inking. Ten One Designs agrees with you and makes one of the best styli I’ve tested and that’s a bunch.
They improved their already simple and economical design with the Pogo Sketch Plus, a design that uses a “new improved … Pro Tip technology” that they promise will result in a smaller tip, greater sensitivity and better inking. You still get the handy pocket clip, which is more important for keeping the stylus around than you’d think. I’ve lost a few styli because they didn’t have a good clip to hold it in place.
Despite playing with the Dagi Stylus, the Cosmonaut and a few others, I keep coming back to my old Pogo Sketch when I’m taking notes in meetings or just doing some drawing. My artist son also prefers the Pogo Sketch.
If you too love your Pogo Sketch, then you can get an upgraded Pogo Sketch Plus for 50% off the regular price. The offer lasts until the end of January. Take a picture of your current Pogo Sketch and send it to Ten One Designs (firstname.lastname@example.org). Ten One Designs will send you a promo code that discounts the price of the stylus when you buy a new one directly from their website. To qualify your email must show up in their inbox by January 31, 2012 at 11:59 EST.
For those interested, the new tip should ink with greater precision because of the new tip which has “patterned structures within the tip itself.” I’ll be getting one soon and will let you know how much of an improvement the tip gives you, if any.
I’m amazed at some of the artwork created with the use of these excellent styli. You can see the amazing work by users at the Ten One Designs Pogo Sketch art gallery.
You can order a Pogo Sketch Plus Stylus in pink, green, orange or silver for the $14.95 full price or half off with your upgrade code. If you upgrade, you get to keep the old stylus.
