British-based MediaDevil has made something of a name for itself by selling more than one million screen protectors for devices such as the iPad and iPhone worldwide. See also How to make a stylus.

The company has recently started expanding its range of accessories. Among them is the Magicwand, a neat and affordable capacitive touchscreen stylus. Available in a choice of four colours, including the sexy-sounding hot pink, it’s both compact and lightweight enough to carry anywhere. Visit all tablet PC accessories.

Like many of the styluses already available on the market, the Magicwand uses a rubberised tip for mark making. Results on a range of tasks, both work-related and leisure-based, were fine, and consistently solid. Go to Best Draw Something Stylus.

The Magicwand comes with a useful built-in clip for pocket or storage and a not-so-useful lanyard. The lanyard, which attaches to the earphone socket on your device for safekeeping and ready use, adds little, and indeed we found it to be distracting during the review. Thankfully, it’s easily detached, so you can decide for yourself how useful the lanyard might be for daily us. See Draw Something review.
