Wacom's new Intuos Creative Stylus 2 enhances mobile creativity -
TOKYO and VANCOUVER, Wash., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the success of its predecessor, Wacom's new Intuos Creative Stylus 2 comes with a fine solid tip for increased visibility and intricate detail for sketching, drawing and painting on an iPad. A premium on-the-go solution for creative professionals, it now also offers USB charging options, a flared front to support a variety of holding styles and side-switch for ease of use. This combination of quality design and superior features provides the perfect tool for artists and designers to work anytime and anywhere.
Ideal for professionals and dedicated enthusiasts who frequently use iPads in their workflow, the new Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is the essential tool for producing pen and paper-style sketches and concept drawings on an iPad. Offering 2,048 pressure sensitivity levels, the user experience is further enhanced thanks to Bluetooth4.0 that seamlessly connects the stylus to iPads and Wacom's Cloud services. Available soon, the two new cloud based services offer clipboard functionality (DropZone) that allow for the exchange of files between different devices and a storage service for individual pen, tablet and display settings (ControlRoom).
Like all products in the Intuos range, Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is beautifully designed and made using brushed aluminium and a soft touch silicone grip. Available in black and grey, this design tool also boasts an ergonomic shape that makes it is particularly comfortable to use even after numerous hours. Additionally, artists can save time with the two conveniently located shortcut buttons located on the barrel of the pen. A protective carry case holds the stylus, USB charging cable and replacement nibs and make the stylus the ultimate pocket sized companion for today's on-the-go designer.
Designed for the iPad 3, iPad 4, mini and Air, the Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is compatible with the top five creative apps including Wacom's Bamboo Paper, SketchBook Pro for iPad (by Autodesk), ArtRage (by Ambient Design), ProCreate (by Savage Interactive) and more. While using the stylus with compatible apps, it becomes highly responsive to light strokes while rejecting unintentional touches made whilst resting palms on the iPad's screen. When connecting the stylus to Bamboo Paper, users will have free access to the 'Creative Pack' including all brushes and writing tools as well as all artists type notebooks with various canvases and papers particularly for drawing and painting.

The Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is priced at $79.95 (USD) and will be available in October from the Wacom eStore and select retail locations.
