Apple has been constructing some evolutionary products, which are so well made up that other companies also inspire to do the same. Apple has been making it loud and clear that they are the best, especially in the mobile and computing segment. With Apple Pencil, it has not been totally true, as there has not been a great response from the end users, and the Pencil concept kind of fall back on Apple. Mostly it was affected due to the pricing of the product. Today we are going to talk about some alternatives to Apple Pencil which are cost effective as well as produce more or less the same functionality, or even more.
Top 8 Alternatives to Apple Pencil
1. Adonit Jot Pro
This is specifically designed for the iPad Pro, hence if you own any other iPad or have more than one, then this product is of no use to you. The stylus or pencil is made up of metal, and have a textured feel. This gives to device a nice and sturdy grip. The tip of the Jot Pro is interesting, as it is a see-through plastic which is placed on the nib. This helps us to locate what’s below the tip. If you are looking for something which will help you to write, or do some creative task than this is a great pick.
2. Bamboo FineLine 3
If you want a product to be used for writing notes, and jotting down ideas, then this is a great stylus to be used. This is developed by Wacom and is the best stylus out on the market. The Stylus connects via Bluetooth and is supported by a wide range of available applications on the iTunes App Store. If you use this stylus, you can make sure that iPad doesn’t record any of your palm entries, and hence it makes the Fineline 3 a great sketching stylus.
3. Circle Disc Stylus
This one is a bit similar to the one we saw in the Adonit Jot Pro. This one is way cheaper than the last one. The Stylus has a similar replaceable clear, and circular nib. This is going to be useful for the artists who are not going to replace the Stylus for a long time and want to get with it for most. The body of the pen is made of aluminum which makes it resistant to corrosion. The nib of the pen is long and slides well into the body, this makes it secure and doesn’t let it fall from the pen. One of the best things about the pen is that it can be used on any touchscreen device, and hence it will not be rejecting any of the palm inputs.
4. CADA Drawing Stylus for iPad
Another great Stylus for people looking for a budget effective pen. This one is really lightweight and has a spring loaded tip. This is available for all the different types of the touchscreen but is specifically designed for all the different types of Apple devices and even Android devices. The pen is able to work with most of the drawing applications such as Procreate, Paper, Sketchbook X, and other applications, which people use to jot down thoughts or use for their official usage.

6. FiftyThree Pencil
This is an unconventionally designed Stylus. IT comes with a flat body, and even with a digital eraser, which is just like the two different ends of pencils.

It is equipped with fine point technology, and the capacitive tip of the stylus is designed to be working with most of the smartphones and tablets.
