Wacom iPad Stylus Models

If you’re like me, you have an iPad or an iPad mini. You’ve done just about everything you could possibly do with your iPad to help make you more productive. I love my iPad and how useful it can really be. There’s just one aspect of the iPad that I’ve always wished was a little better. I’ve always wanted a more accurate stylus. If you bought any of those styluses out there, no matter how expensive they are, their precision is lacking. Wacom understands this and has recently developed a much more sensitive fine tip stylus.

Wacom iPad Stylus

The Bamboo Stylus Fineline is their base model which features something called thin tip technology. It is comparable to their earlier drawing tablets with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. This will enable you to draw more accurate sketches, and write more accurately than ever before. If 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity are enough for you, you may want to go to the next model.

The Creative Stylus 2 offers double the pressure sensitivity levels at 2048. This will enable you to create more fine tuned sketches and notes on your iPad. This can essentially take the place of having to carry around your drawing tablet and your laptop. You can simply bring along your iPad and your new Wacom stylus, and you’ll be all set. It works with sketchbook Pro and other popular drawing and painting apps.

Wacom iPad Stylus Pricing

The top level stylus goes for around $140, which is about half the price of buying a drawing tablet that hooks directly into your computer. If your goal is to be more mobile, and to use the apps found on your iPad, this is a great choice for you. It keeps you from having to add extra hardware to carry around. The cheaper model comes in at around $82, which is less expensive, but you’ll want to keep in mind you get half of the pressure sensitivity levels.


Personally, I’m excited to see that they are coming out with more accurate stylus models. I’ve never felt like the drawing apps on my iPad simulated paper and pencil, ink, or paint closely enough. What do you think about Wacom’s newest products? Would you buy it to use with your iPad, or do you think that they are too expensive? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this, so feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
