    it works great, especially the pressure sensitivity. palm rejection is good on iOS devices, but not so much on android due to the variation of touch screen hardware (works differently on different android devices). also, you gotta make sure to use the right pen nib for your device. it comes with 2 nibs, each one for iOS and Android.
    I use SonarPen with IbisPaint & ArtFlow on Android, but the experience is better with ArtFlow. it’s just so fluid. I think it’s because of the dedicated SonarPen driver made for ArtFlow.
    I hope IbisPaint & SonarPen continue to make a further adjustment for a better experience.
    but overall, I enjoy SonarPen so much. its precision, smoothness & pressure sensitivity are excellent. also, the price is good!

    It pretty awesome and it works on pretty much everything the only part that I couldn’t get used to was the plastic attached to the point of the pen it really throws you off when your drawing or using the pen for anything in that sense…..i couldn’t get used to it but other than that it’s really useful to have around for someone that’s into art as much as me and has a lot of different devices to create on especially the ones that don’t come with a stylus especially one for art that has pressure sensing capabilities.

    This pen works really well! The lines are smooth, it’s comfortable in my hand, and it works nicely with the app ibispaint X. The only thing which could be improved is the button which is a little hard, but the rest is great! My drawings improved drastically by just switching to this pen as I’ve been drawing with my fingers for years. Overall a 5/5 because you get what you pay for!

    It was amazing! It was very comfortable to hold and the best part is that there’s a protective tip so it wouldn’t scratch your screen! However, the shortcut bottom was a little hard to press so I don’t really use it. I usually like to listen to music while drawing but I couldn’t because the pen was plugged into the microphone hole and was recognized as a headphone. I tried to use AirPods and it still wouldn’t play any music. I don’t know if anything can be changed but it’s still wonderful!

    It’s a really good stylus! But one thing to note is that it’s not compatible with all apps. It’s still usable on non supported apps just not the pressure sensitivity and palm rejection. Other than that, this pen is great! Shipping was quick too

    Its as expected but works perfectly fine with some devices i have. Only problem is that it ia very flimsy and is worrying that it will easily fray out.
    Also the pen Holder had loose magnets and i had to find a way to place em back on. Then i also had to try and get my sonar pen to get its pressure sensitivity to work. But the nib, because its so flimsy, required i held it different ways or press so hard that it registers but i get large blotches in return.

    Overall, I love it. Just wish they done something where the pen didnt feel so fragile and pen nibs were a little cheaper to replace.

    I love it! it works really good and I also love the fact that it works on literally any touch screen device. I use it with ibispaintX and procreate, I dont really need pressure sensitivity so it works just fine for me on procreate 🙂 But if you want the oressure sensitivity feature then use it with ibispaintX since it supports this pen.

    This pen really is 5 stars, it feels like an actual pencil, it works like its supposed to but its super sensitive. Doesnt really give straight lines and if drawing slanted the disc confuses the tip and makes a hook at the ends of the lines. Although this could be because im new to it and i need to get used to it. And i also like that it comes with a magnetic holder to attach to my tablet and a cord as a guarantee that it works with my tablet.

    Of course my biggest peeve is the disc nib, but there’s no changing that. Otherwise, it connects easily and instantly works BUT their “palm rejection” completely turns off all touch whatsoever.. even though its convenient to lean on the screen with your hand, if you need to zoom in, you’re unable to pinch and have to do it with your pen; if you need to double-tap to undo you cannot, and have to do it with the pen. Palm rejection is important but the sonar pen doesn’t handle it well, although everything else works fine.

    • admin (store manager)

      Hi Rocky,

      We created the SonarPen and provided a driver for the App developer to add the support in their apps. But it is totally up to the developer how to handle the palm rejection function. In the case of Zoomnotes on the iOS, you can use 2 finger gestures with palm rejection freely as with the Apple Pencil, but in some other app, you need to use the button on the SonarPen (ibis paint) or a on screen button (Art studio pro) to switch between finger + pen and pen only mode. Anyway, thanks for the review, we will keep on improving the SonarPen better.

    I’m very happy with my purchase, the pen is perfect for drawing digitally anywhere you go. I’ve been using it with Ibis Paint and my iPad 2 (Yes, it works with a device that old) the past few days and it’s been a great experience, although there are often times where the pen stops responding for a while, but this might be a driver issue. The cable does tend to get in the way and I’m often worried about damaging it when rolling it up, and I often feel like I have to be careful not to damage the nib. The sensitivity is excellent and it’s as good as a graphics tablet. I’d like to see more apps support this, such as Autodesk Sketchbook or Procreate, but other than that I’m very glad I bought this, it’s great for budget artists and old iPad owners.

    Lets start with the good,

    1. Pressure sensitivity works very well.
    2. Very affordable.
    3. Comfortable to hold feels solid.
    4. Has palm rejection for older iPads but not older android tablets like the tab E.
    5. No battery life, or Bluetooth to deal with or worry about.
    6. It’s pretty much plug and play.
    7. Smooth drawing experience.

    Now the not so good,

    1. Pen sometimes disconnects from your device. (This is an app and driver issue not the pens fault)
    2. The palm rejection can be a bit weak on older ipads, I had mine rejecting my palm about 80% of the time.
    3. It can take some getting used to using the pen with a cord attached to it, the cord can get in the way and make it awkward to draw with.
    4. Very few apps support this pen, but that should change if we contact app developers and let them know about this pen!

    Overall I am happy with my purchase, I was more interested in giving new life to my android tablet but for now the older iPad is what I’m using currently. If you get this pen contact all the developers that have added this pen into their apps and ask for better support.

    Models used:
    – d-01j (Android Kirin 950)
    – ipad mini4 (iOS A8)

    Applications used:
    – ibisPaint X

    Good point:
    – Very good cost performance.
    – The cursor becomes more stable than the bluetooth type pen.(It is personal impression.)
    – You can use either android and ipad if your used application is compatible.

    Bad point:
    – There are few supported applications.
    – There are times when the pen does not respond when connecting to the device (react once it is plugged removed and in from the setting screen in the application.I think that this is due to the problem of perfection of the corresponding application.).
    – Let’s hook it on something and use it successfully as the cable hits the hands and it may get in the way.
    – It is a bit hard to use until you get used to it.

    Summary:
    – It is a good item that can draw a picture cheaply if it can be used well.
    – I hope that applications that correspond to more pressure sensing will be added in the future!

    Got one of these for my old iPad 3 (Retina 2012). Previously I used the Bamboo stylus from Wacom though the SonarPen lets me also write and paint with pressure sensitivity on IbisPaint. The stylus also works without pressure sensitivity for other apps as well. Though the pressure sensitivity is a welcome addition. Hope to see more software support from other apps in the future.

    It is great that I can use my old iPad again as it was just gathering dust in a drawer before this. A great way to give back life to an old iPad.
