Expensive, but totally justified.
20 September 2016
Firstly I will mention that this is by far the most expensive pencil I have ever purchased, but even four months later I have no regrets.
The pencil itself is very Apple-like, it looks sleek, appears to be made of high quality materials and feels great in the hand.
I have noticed some people using additional grips, but I have not needed to use these for additional comfort.
Primarily I use the pencil in conjunction with my iPad pro to write up notes for class. Initially I did find it a little bit strange because the tip felt slippery against the screen, I ended up purchasing a matte screen protector which provides just a fraction more surface friction. After applying the screen protector it felt very similar to writing on paper.
Combined with a nice note taking app (I use GoodNotes) you should feel right at home whilst note-taking.
Aside from taking notes I have "attempted" to do some artwork with the critically acclaimed Procreate drawing application, the apple pencil has seamless integration with a selection of apps, but none do it better than Procreate. The pressure sensitivity works brilliantly, although I did turn it off when trying to do outlines as I don't have the steadiest hand. Another cool point is that you can tilt the pencil and shade in an area just as you would with an ordinary pencil.
Overall I am super impressed, although it does appear expensive for such a great quality stylus I feel the price is justified.
