South Carolina attorney Justin Kahn posted yesterday on his iPad Notebook website that Wacom Bamboo Styluses are currently on sale at Staples. There are three models available, but my favorite is the duo because it is the perfect length and it also includes a pen, just in case you ever need it. Here is a link to my 2012 review, and I'll add that I have been using this stylus many times a week for over a year and it is simply fantastic. There are other great styluses on the market — I also like the Adonit Jot Pro and still use it from time to time — but the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo is the one that I keep coming back to again and again. If you are just going to get one stylus to use with your iPad, I think that the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo is the one to get.
I usually recommend using Amazon to buy a stylus because their prices tend to be the best, but I see that right now, the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo costs $31.99 on Amazon while it costs only $29.99 (a $10 discount off of their regular price) at Staples. Granted, the $2 difference is not huge, any you may prefer to buy from Amazon anyway if you are a member of Amazon Prime, but since this is the lowest advertised price that I have ever seen for this best-in-class stylus, I thought that it was worth sharing the news that Justin Kahn discovered just in case you are in the market for a stylus right now.
By the way, the most common use for my stylus is to take handwritten notes on my iPad, and my current favorite app to do so is GoodNotes. I also use a stylus from time to time when I am annotating PDF documents with an app like GoodReader or more recently, the excellent iAnnotate app that I reviewed last week.
You can click here to buy online from Staples, or you can just pick one up at the store if there is a Staples in your area. I presume that this sale will last about a week, and if you are reading this post after the sale has ended, then your best best is probably to buy the Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo from Amazon. Wherever you get it, a good stylus is a very useful iPad accessory.
