Is the Apple Pencil worth it? Has it made a difference in productivity?
I’m a student in graduate school and I find myself reading lots of pdfs and documents. Even with apps, I find it difficult to interact with documents in the way that I’d like too. A stylus seems like a great thing to have and I would love to hand write notes. And frankly, Apple’s keyboard is very difficult to use and not intuitive at all when it comes to switching between multiple languages. having a stylus would mediate that difficulty. BUT $89 is a lot of money to pay just because I don’t like the keyboard. Still, small time savers mean a lot in the long run.
I have a $35 gift card but $54 + tax is still a lot of money for my college student budget. I still really want the pencil though.
So if anyone owns an Apple Pencil what are your thoughts on it? Has it enhanced your productivity
Edit/Update: thanks for all the suggestions! I just caved, placed my order and will have the pencil in the next few days. If it helps, I have the 2018 6th gen iPad and the pencil is compatible. I feel much more confident about my decision. Thanks!
