If your Mom or mother figure in your life is a bit tech savvy, is an artist, likes the tradition of using a pencil or pen, or even has an iPad, you may want to consider getting her an Adonit stylus for Mother’s Day. (Heck, you may even want to pick up one for yourself, if you match any of the previous criteria). While it’s true that the iPad launched and still is stylus-free, and even Steve Jobs reportedly was against having a stylus with the iPad, there are enough use cases and a good number of artists, designers and ordinary people like us to warrant the re-birth of the stylus.
Personally, I’m more of a finger-paint-on-my-iPad kind of guy. My drawing talent is worthy of being pinned up on the refrigerator next to pre-school work, and even then, it would blend right in. My wife, on the other hand, likes the feel of using a pen, even if just for clicking items on the iPad screen. And my oldest, 16 year old, daughter actually has quite the knack for digital artistry. Everybody has their own comfort level and usage style, and Adonit has a stylus to accommodate that.
