Shame about this one but we had to take ours back. We were in an Apple Store for something else and spotted this hanging up. At first we thought it was quite neat, but once we got it home and tried to use it, we soon learned that it was a total waste of money. The stylus didn't work. We had other stylus' which worked fine, yet for some reason this £25 one didn't. It also even needed batteries which we THINK was just for a light. We looked online for some reviews and they were all saying the same thing, that they don't work. The icing on the cake was that the app you can download for it was free anyway. So essentially you were paying £25 for a battery powered stylus that didn't work. We decided to use our existing "cheap" stylus (also easier to hold and was better size wise for a child to learn to hold a pen/pencil/crayon!), and download the FREE Crayola app.
It was the first time I had ever walked out of an Apple Store with a product not fit for purpose. I recommend that Apple test other branded products, as it is doing nothing for their reputation. This product needs to be taken off the shelves.
