Late last week, Jason Snell over at Six Colors reported that with the latest beta of iOS 12.2, the Logitech Crayon now works on the 2018 iPad Pro. The Crayon had previously only been compatible with the 2018 9.7 iPad. I was immediately interested. I like the idea of having a writing device for my iPad Pro, but I also have literally zero artistic ability. I felt like the $130 Apple Pencil was insane overkill. I just needed something to sign docs and do super basic storyboarding and stuff like that. I threw the beta on my iPad and checked Best Buy's website. Two in stock at my local store for the low low price of $69. So I stopped after work and picked one up.
I kept the packaging and receipt since this working was predicated on using a beta version of iOS, but that ended up being not necessary because Apple released the official 12.2 update on Monday, and the pencil continues to work.
I actually like this a lot. It's pretty much exactly what I need. I don't need the pressure sensitivity (or the extra cost) of the Apple Pencil, but having something to poke around on the screen and draw simple diagrams and sign contracts and stuff is a great addition to the iPad Pro. We're currently house hunting, so I have a feeling I'll be using this combined with the excellent Linea Sketch app to plan my garage, my kitchen, furniture, yard, etc.
Overall, the Crayon seems to be an excellent choice for the, uh, less artistically inclined among us. I'll add a video to this post when I get a chance.
