Adonit, a company that makes a range of popular styluses for iOS devices, today announced the launch of two new products -- the Adonit Mark and the Adonit Switch. The Adonit Mark is an entry-level stylus that's priced affordably while the Adonit Switch offers a more premium experience.

Adonit's Mark is a standard mesh-tipped stylus with a few features to set it apart from competitors, including an anti-roll design and an aluminum body in either silver or black to match Apple's Silver and Space Gray iOS devices.

The Adonit Switch is a convertible stylus that bundles a ballpoint pen with one of Adonit's signature clear plastic precision stylus tips. One end contains a standard 0.8mm ballpoint pen tip, while the other works with all of Apple's iOS devices. Like the Mark, it comes in silver and black.

Both the Switch and the Mark are available from the Adonit website. The Mark is priced at $12.99 and the Switch is priced at $39.99.

Adonit manufactured Adobe's Ink stylus and it was a massive pile of crap. It worked terribly with my iPad Air 2. I refuse to buy any Adonit stylus again and am looking forward to the Apple Pencil working with future iPad Air and Mini models.

Don't know why they bother. all 3rd party stuluses for iOS devices are terrible regardless of who makes them due to hardware limitations of older iOS devices. This stylus won't be any different. And assuming iPad Air 3 will support Apple Pencil, going forward there won't be any need for them either.

My Adonit Jot Touch Pixelpoint might not be as good as the Apple Pencil, but at least I've been using it all this time now, it's good enough for taking notes in university, certainly better for me than using the software or hardware keyboard or... *swallows* my finger which have been the Apple-certified™ ways of taking notes in university until the iPad Pro came along.

I'm not buying the Pro just to get the Pencil though and as long as my iPad Air runs as well as it does now I have no intention on burdening my student budget even more.

So I'm glad Adonit along with others bothered long before Apple did, they really took a too long nap on this one.
Yes, they may have created a better product by taking this long, but my God I'm not taking notes when Apple is ready, but when I'm ready.
The alternative - until Adonit fixed the hole in the iOS ecosystem for me and many others - was to get a Samsung tablet with a Wacom-made stylus.
Didn't want to lug even more devices around though!
