About the Product
Adobe Ink is a fine-tip, pressure-sensitive pen built using Adonit Pixelpoint technology to give you greater creative control and unprecedented precision. Adobe Slide is a digital ruler that lets you draw any shape on your iPad-including straight lines, perfect circles, classic French curves, and more.
Apple Pencil sets the standard for how drawing, note‑taking, and marking up documents should feel — intuitive, precise, and magical.

What customers say about "Features"
Adobe Ink & Slide Creative Cloud Stylus
  • The aluminum accent, coupled with the smooth plastic and the pen holder all scream top-quality.
  • I've so far tested with ProCreate and SktechBook Pro, and both work.
  • This is the most comfortable and lightest stylus that I have ever used.
  • AstroPad is macOS only, so you have to be fully in the Apple ecosystem.
  • Aluminum accent scratches and dents easily.
Apple Pencil Stylus Pen
  • Using it with the 2018 iPad 9.7 inch, it does work beautifully.
  • Great addition to the iPad for fine precision artwork and illustration.
  • Pretty low battery life and fiddly to charge.
  • This works well on the new iPad Air. Perfect for me!
  • Not the most comfortable pen to write with as it's quite slippery.
