We’re delighted (due to popular demand) 😉 to offer our readers an opportunity to receive one of two Pencils by Fiftythree in this giveaway. Pencil by Fiftythree the developers of the incredibly popular Paper iOS app have created a stylus that is incredibly exciting. It works with Bluetooth technology and connects to your iPad within the Paper app to offer some fabulous features that you wouldn’t ordinarily associate with a stylus/iPad app pairing. These include palm rejection – allowing you to draw whilst your hand rests on the iPad, use of an eraser at the top of the pencil, there’s also an additional an excellent finger blend mode.
There are two models of Pencil, one in walnut which also includes a magnetic feature, so if you use the Apple smart case with your iPad, you can attach your stylus for safekeeping. The other is graphite and is essentially the same other than the magnetic feature.
The walnut Pencil retails for $59.95 and the graphite for $49.95. Both Pencils connect to all iPads with a Retina display and iPad mini only. They will not connect to an iPad 2 or iPad 1.
