Recommended Apps

All touch screens are different. From the first editions to the newest models, every screen is wired differently. App developers are constantly updating their programs to make sure they give the best performance on the latest tablets and software updates.

There are many factors within an app that can affect how it works with an active stylus. We've tried many apps to see which are optimized to complement our fine point stylus line, so that you can get the most out of your Apex stylus!

TIP: Many note taking apps have a palm rejection option built right in. If you prefer to write with your hand rested on your tablet, try activating this in-app feature!
