Great tools inspire great ideas. Pencil is the most natural and expressive tool for getting ideas on Paper.

To pair the stylus to the iPad, you touch a button in the Paper app. Once paired, you can start using the stylus as you normally would. Pencil also comes with a virtual eraser found at the top of the stylus, which is also recognized by the app. FiftyThree says that you can mix-and-match stylus input with finger controls like pinch-to-zoom.

Pencil is fully compatible with the Paper app on the iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina Display and it also can be used as a dumb stylus with any app on any capacitive touchscreen device.

Available in walnut and graphite, Pencil is available for purchase here.
