Just Mobile releases ultra-fine stylus for smartphone and tablet displays

Just Mobile has announced the release of a new stylus pen for tablets and smartphones. Featuring a 1.8mm tip, the AluPen Digital aims to provide a writing experience comparable to that of a ballpoint pen on paper. The stylus is accompanied by a wider, 8mm tip, intended for use with drawing. Its charge-amplified circuitry does not require Bluetooth pairing or companion apps to function. Powered by a AAA battery, the stylus automatically turns itself off after idling for three minutes. Priced at $50, the AluPen Digital is now available.



Moment app tracks time spent using smartphone

Software designer Kevin Holesh has released Moment, an app that tracks how long a smartphone has been used for each day. Aiming to make users aware of the total amount of time they spend using a smartphone device each day, Moment tracks where the user travels to, length of time when the device is in use, and customizable daily limit reminders.



Continued use of GPS in the background may decrease the device's battery life prematurely. Free to download, Moment requires iOS 7.0 for use on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    FINALLY, a stylus that actually works like a writing utensil. I don't know about you but IMHO, the fat styluses out there are next to useless for accurately drawing/sketching because YOU CAN'T SEE NEXT TO THE TIP.
