Works nicely with in the Paper 53 App,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: FiftyThree Digital Stylus Pencil for iPad, iPad Pro, and iPhone - Walnut (Personal Computers)
Update4 : Apparently an app called Noteself supports Pencil 53 , as I don't own the app I can't comment on how well it works.( Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus also supported)
Update3 : Procreate also supports Pencil 53 ( unless they decide to create their own hardware), works well but not as well as the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus.
Update2 : Added a star , since my review . Still use my other Bluetooth pen more(in other Apps) but this does work so well in the Paper 53 App.
Update1 : Pencil 53 Replacement Tips and Eraser are far too expensive for me.
Works nicely with in the Paper 53 App, you could use it as a normal stylus outside of the App but I wouldn't as the cost of replacing the nibs will likely be quite high.( Would be nice to how much are the replacement nibs going to cost, they don't have them on Amazon UK yet)
Build quality is good. Looks and feels nice to use.
Would be nice if they included a carry case/ pouch ( for the price )
If you use the App often then it might be something to consider, there are other Bluetooth pens available that work in multiple Apps. Paper 53 don't plan on adding compatibility with for other products except for the Pogo which was already implemented.
So essentially it's a gadget and unless you actively use Paper 53 I would not recommend it as it's pricey and limited (at this point anyway) to the App Paper 53.
To Sum Up
If you use Paper 53 and absolutely must have it , then you might find it useful.
If you use other Note Taking / Drawing Apps then best to move on and find another product.(e.g Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus )
Only 3 stars as it's expensive for what it is.

Hi there, in case you hadn't noticed (I didn't for a few days!) there is a spare tip and eraser in the tube packaging.

We have recently launched our SDK (software development kit), which will allow more apps to utilize Pencil. We're also working on making the replacement tips and erasers available through Amazon.
The price here is set by Amazon and includes taxes that we don't have in the US.

Thank You; Thank You; Thank You Sasha. At last ! Someone has updated their 'review complaint' about this 53 Pencil. So many buyers have moaned to the hilt with the negative results they experienced with this tool which is all well and good but they never bother to give further details about responses they receive from the Staff at 53 of how they have got on afterwoods with the pencil. Complaining is all well and good but means nothing when not qualified with an update. So well done and at last I can say I will not be purchasing the 53 Pencil just yet. I will stick with my perfectly workable Wocam Stylus that cost me over £60.00 but at least this works and on all of the apps I have and without any problems. I just fancied adding a 53 to my collection, but I will wait until the Pencil has gone through various updates before I give one a home :) Have a lovely day Sasha 🌹
