Most drawing apps have sliders to control things like brush size and opacity, but using just your finger or a regular stylus, it’s hard to feel you have total control. Ten One Design’s Pogo Connect Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Pen is a pressure-sensitive; we hoped it would make drawing on that touchscreen feel more like drawing on our Mac using a Wacom graphics tablet. But the pressure sensitivity features vary between the 13-and-counting compatible drawing and note-taking apps. In ArtSense and Photoshop Touch, for example, pressing hard gave us darker lines, but didn’t change the width, and in Paper by FiftyThree, the thickness changes but not the opacity.
The touch-screen stylus sure has come a long way, and few companies have set the standard for the device quite like Ten One Design. So, it's fitting that on the five-year anniversary of the company that brought us the capacitive touch screen stylus, Ten One has announced details on the brand new Pogo Connect.
