I’m very excited! This is easily the best looking stylus for capacitive touch screen devices (iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Android tablets and phones, Windows devices, etc) that I’ve seen so far. The tip is retractable, it looks like a mechanical pencil, and, so far, it has the smallest tip of any stylus on the market. The tip size was the primary reason that I decided to back the project. Oh, and the replacement tips are very inexpensive.
If you are looking for a stylus for your iPad (or any other modern device with a capacitive touchscreen), you should really have a look at this one. It’s already fully funded and will ship in July.
Now I have to decide what color and finish I want.
One of the most beloved apps in the iOS jailbreak community is SBSettings because it makes it easy to quickly access frequently modified settings. Since I haven’t jailbroken my iPhone in about three years, I don’t have access to this great utility. I’d still like to create shortcuts to certain settings on my iPhone’s homescreen because drilling down to a setting that I frequently access is a hassle. It seems that this is rather easy to do now with iOS 5.
Many (all?) of the screens within the iOS Settings app can be accessed via a simple URL, so it’s possible to get right to a specific screen if you know its address. Enter IconSettings, by iPhoneZA. This simple Web-based solution makes it easy to add shortcuts to settings right to your homescreen. When you tap the icon on the homescreen, Safari will open and immediately launch the Settings app, bringing you right to the screen for the setting(s) you wanted.
