Adonit Pixel: The Standard for Writing and Drawing on the iPad

When it comes to styluses for the iPad, there are literally hundreds, if not thousands to choose from. But, there is one brand that I feel that stands out from the rest, and that is Adonit. They really understand what people need in a stylus and how it can help the user experience. Adonit recently came out with a new stylus called the Pixel. It has a fine tip (1.9mm) which makes it feel like you are using a pen and it has improved its accuracy on your iPad. You also have pressure sensitivity as well as palm rejection, both of which come in very handy when drawing and writing on your device. Lastly, it also has shortcut buttons that you can program to do certain things. Overall, this is a quality stylus that can come in very handy for those that want to get more out of their iPad or iPad Pro.

Words With Friends, Educational Style

We all know how popular Words With Friends has gotten over the years. Well, now they have brought their game to the education world. The focus of the app is to keep the same core of the original Word With Friends game, but to add some great educational features. The way they do this is by using words that are frequent in text, assessments, reading, etc. Not only does it help students build their vocabulary, but teachers can also track to see what words students are learning as they are playing. I can see this being a great support activity to give students a little break and getting them to learn as well.

ClamCase has come out with a pretty solid variety of cases, to help those that have an iPad feel like they can use it more for work.
