Amazon is currently offering the Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil for iPad with Christmas delivery for just $49.99. If you have Apple’s iPad hardware but don’t want to invest in the Apple Pencil, then Logitech’s affectionally named Crayon is a definite contender for that thrown and is an absolute steal at under $50.

Many people scoffed at the idea of using a stylus or some form of input device on modern tablets and smartphones. Samsung has been offering the Galaxy Note with the Samsung S-Pen but not everyone was convinced that it was the correct thing to do in the modern digital age. Step forward Apple with iPad Pro and the extremely versatile Apple Pencil and suddenly everyone is waxing lyrical about how amazing that combination is. Still, it’s a bit pricey for some people, which is why they will be looking for a reliable and competent alternative to Apple Pencil. Logitech is looking to offer that.

First of all, you have quite a list of compatible iPads with this Logitech Crayon. It offers compatibility with iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd-Gen), iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad (7th-Gen), iPad (6th-(Gen), iPad Air (3rd-Gen), and iPad mini 5 running iOS 12.2 and above. It offers precise and fast input not only within the iOS ecosystem itself but also across a plethora of third-party applications that are offered on the App Store and that have built-in support for Apple Pencil.

Rather than having to use your fingers for drawing or annotating images and documents, the Logitech Crayon offers the ability to write and draw as you naturally would using pen and paper. This lets you pump details onto the iPad without having to worry about missing a line or missing out on important details. It also comes with a smart tip that can be adjusted to change the type of input that you need – need yourself a thicker or more powerful line? No worries; just adjust the tip.

It offers an extremely simple connection to the iPad with no delay and has a constantly growing list of compatible apps as more and more developers start to support Apple Pencil. Grab it right now from the list below and save immediately.
