Incipio Inscribe Stylus review

£15 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Incipio

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Shorter than your typical pen, the Incipio Inscribe Stylus is a simple and effective combination of smooth black barrel and rubberised tip.

Incipio has a decent track record for producing quality iOS accessories, and the Inscribe doesn’t disappoint. See also How to make a stylus.

Shorter than your typical pen, this stylus is a simple and effective combination of smooth black barrel and rubberised tip. The tip is described as “omni-directional” by the makers, which all rubberised tips appear to be. It simply means the Inscribe can be used from any position or angle to produce a consistent mark.

The stylus produced good results in a range of iPad activities, including note taking, game playing, drawing and painting. The tip, while bouncy, doesn’t have so much give that it’s unresponsive or lacks control. The tip is kept in place by a small silver ring, which adds to the solid feel. As it’s not uncommon to lose a pen or two around the home or office, the Inscribe comes with a secure but neat integrated clip for your shirt pocket, bag or iPad carry case. Go to Best Draw Something Stylus.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Inscribe works equally well with iPhone and iPod touch, and its neat size makes for an ideal travel partner to any Apple iOS device. See Draw Something review.
