You’ve seen the Apple commercials where kids FaceTime with their grandparents. Heck I FaceTime with my two-year-old nephew and it’s awesome. Apple makes it seem like FaceTime is just a magical program thatÂ just works, but in reality youÂ doÂ need to turn it on and set it up on your devicesâ€”and Macâ€”to make it work.
Trying to figure out whatâ€™s the best iOS device to give (or ask for)? We hear you, it can be tough to figure out what is the right device for the right person and what they will be using it for. This is what this iOS gift guide is about. Weâ€™ve posed a few common scenarios and what we think is the right iOS device choice in each situation.
Iâ€™ve tried lots and lots and lots stylii (styluses?) over the years. From some of the original Pogo Sketch models (which I still keep as backup) to the new brush-like models like the BRVSH and I have had some favs (like the Pogo Sketch Pro, which I wore outâ€”or my nephew chewed through), but all of them have been lacking a bit. Some donâ€™t have the right heft, some donâ€™t have a pen clip, others donâ€™t have tips that arenâ€™t precise or responsive, essentially I was still seeking the best yet. When I saw the HAND Stylus on Kickstarter I backed it right away. A retractible nib that even rotates a little bit as you retract it so the tip wears evenly. Precision-made aluminum body like a good mechanical pencil. Pen clip that works with the iPad Smart Cover. It seemed perfect. It took a long, long while to get to me, but it was certainly worth the wait.
