The Apple Pencil is a great pen for the iPad, especially the second generation model that magnetically attaches to the iPad Air and iPad Pro, but at $ 99, it isn’t for everyone. Another common complaint is that it’s just a little too small and thin.

While you can find many pens for less than $ 10 on Amazon, they are not reliable and can’t really take advantage of the iPad Pro’s high touch sampling rate. But the Logitech Crayon can.

Here, too, the Logitech Crayon was developed with the help of Apple and is supported by all apps that support Apple Pencil. You get the same precise input in a chunkier, grippier body and is $ 30 cheaper than the Apple Pencil. It also works with all iPads that support the Apple Pencil.
