What customers say about "Key Specs"
Logitech Crayon for iPad (6th Gen), iPad Air (3rd Gen) and iPad Mini (5th Gen)
  • Compatible with my iPad, works great. The sensitivity of the screen is excellent. I can write just like on paper.
  • Effectively zero lag when writing on the screen; not pressure sensitive but in some apps the angle of the crayon on the screen changes the width of the line.
  • Works well for those that don’t need pressure sensitivity, so simply taking notes etc is fine.
  • The tip is durable and yet doesn't scratch the front screen of the device, which, I must admit I was worried about with the previous pen I bought.
  • The only con that I can think of at the moment is the difficulty to find any replacement tips.
Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)
  • The pressure sensitive tip gives you the feeling of working with a real pen or pencil. I would recommend this to anyone with an ipad pro that's doing any kind of drawing.
  • The pressure sensitive tip is holding up to my heavy handedness quite well.
  • It is pressure sensitive and accurate, and has been successfully charging.
  • Also the noise the tip makes on the surface is quite noticeable; I was in a quiet room and got people giving me the look.
  • The tip is not smooth- has a plastic seam or defect. when using on iPad screen, causes light scratches.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech Crayon for iPad (6th Gen), iPad Air (3rd Gen) and iPad Mini (5th Gen)
  • The touch screen sensitivity is amazing and the palm rejection feature works beautifully, allowing you to rest your hand naturally on the screen to write and draw.
  • The Crayon functions largely the same as the actual Apple pencil, featuring the same low latency and wrist detection.
  • Great product, works well with my iPad and I really appreciate the palm rejection feature. Charges with an iphone or ipad cord and is very light weight.
  • The no-pairing feature is also pretty great; you just turn the pencil on and you're ready to go; you also use the same charger you do for your ipad, so no need to haul extra cables around.
  • It can’t do any of the multitasking features, you have to use your fingers and can’t bring down the control center or Notification Center.
Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)
  • The pencil is easy to use, you just have to clip it on to the iPad's magnetic strip for the pencil, and it automatically syncs to the iPad so you can use it.
  • I use the pencil for drawing in several apps like Clip Studio Paint, ProCreate, and Concepts. Effective and adjustable.
  • This pencil brought a few welcome upgrades, namely the double tap feature on the pencil to switch to eraser.
  • I like it's that it's charging via magnetic attachment to the iPad.
  • There is no tip cover for this model, which is frustrating since you can easily break the tip.
