Pogo Connect Adds Brush Tips

If you are looking for a more sophisticated stylus for your iPad, the Pogo Connect connects with your device via Bluetooth 4.0 and gives a pressure-sensative response.

While the $79.95 tool is designed for third generation iPads, you can use Pogo Bridge app to connect it to a wider range of devices. They also offer a new series of brush tips for the device. Check it out:

Pogo Connect is a bluetooth pen that allows you to draw with different line widths on an iPad. It works with many drawing and note-taking apps. It’s also great for handwriting because the iPad can ignore your palm and wrist.

The tool currently works with a variety of different apps, including: “Brushes, Zen Brush, PDFpen for iPad, Procreate, FlipBook HD, Sketch Club, SketchBook Pro, Art Studio, Good Notes, Colors, Paper by FiftyThree, Noteshelf, NotePad Pro, NoteBinder, IbisPaint and ArtRage.”

I tested the digital tool with handwriting apps, getting good results. But I am not an artist–any artists in the audience using this stylus? We’d love to hear your response. Here’s a video of one artist using the tool:
