Review: Woodees iPic Stylus

When the late Steve Jobs first showed off the touch sensitive screen of the iPhone, he bragged that it didn’t require a stylus, which he infamously decried as “yuck!” But in the five years since, certain segments of users have found that their fingers just aren’t the answer. That applies to those wearing gloves, artists, and in some cases, musicians who need fine-tune control of their virtual music apps. Of all the various stylus products which have come to market for devices like the iPhone and iPad, the Woodees iPic just might be the most original.
While most stylus products are shaped like a pen and held like one, the iPic is instead shaped like a guitar pick. I was initially tempted to classify it as a mere novelty product. But upon using it, I came to conclude that a shorter stylus which can be held with just the thumb and index finger can indeed be more accurate – and less laborious – than a larger pen shaped product.
So that makes the iPic a practical product for those users who, for whatever reason, feel the need to defy Apple and use a stylus with one of his products. Also, frankly, any guitar pick shaped accessory is just plain cool – even Mr. Jobs, a music lover, might have conceded that.
