More fun to use than a standard stylus

The Ten One Design Pogo Connect stylus is more fun to use than a standard stylus, but since the pressure sensitivity and palm rejection features aren’t available in all apps or with Android devices, it seems like a niche product with a narrow scope. I am impressed with what I’ve seen though and look forward to what’s in store for this product and other pressure sensitive styluses in the near future.

Bulky, doesn't completely work as described

from Pocket-lint

The Pogo Connect does bring something that you can't achieve easily with your finger to the drawing experience on the iPad and for that it's worth looking at.

The Pogo Connect does bring something that you can't achieve easily with your finger to the drawing experience on the iPad and for that it's worth looking at.

If you do opt for the Pogo Connect be prepared that you'll have to invest some time in learning how to use it with the iPad (it only works with the iPad 3, 4, and mini) to get the most out of it. Drawing on the iPad is a very different experience to drawing on paper and failing to realise this will lead to disappointment.

You can use it as a typical stylus, but don’t expect to perform as advertised

from MacReview

One of the things which interested me the most is how Pogo Connect performs, since its developers claim that it’s able to recognize hundreds levels of sensitivity. I tried using it with as many applications as I can, especially with Photoshop Touch, Paper, and iPhoto, which are the app I use the most. Sensitivity surely wasn’t as advertised, and I had a lot of trouble. I actually got really frustrated with it, since different pressures didn’t make any noticeable change. I thought that the problem must be in me and my iPad, so I did a lot of things to reset some settings. Problems persisted even after....

All in all, I find this stylus completely overpriced, since it costs $79.95. I had many troubles with it, as well as many users who got frustrated. You can use it as a typical stylus, but don’t expect to perform as advertised.

It just doesn't work well enough

from Gizmodo

As much as we like the idea, the Pogo Connect just feels too incomplete to spend $80 on. We didn't expect it to compete with the power and versatility of a Wacom tablet, but it should be able to deliver more core functionality. If you are a casual sketcher, the Pogo can be a lot of fun, but if yo...More

As much as we like the idea, the Pogo Connect just feels too incomplete to spend $80 on. We didn't expect it to compete with the power and versatility of a Wacom tablet, but it should be able to deliver more core functionality. If you are a casual sketcher, the Pogo can be a lot of fun, but if you are looking for a tool that will recreate the subtelty and dynamics of drawing, you may be disappointed.

Mac Life

Long-lasting battery, feels nice, soft tip

from Mac Life

Ten One Design obviously put a lot of thought into this. The tip is removable, and they plan to offer different tips later on. There’s a Pogo Connect app for the iPad you can use to disconnect the pen if needed, and even help you find it if you’ve misplaced it. But if you’re ima...More

Ten One Design obviously put a lot of thought into this. The tip is removable, and they plan to offer different tips later on. There’s a Pogo Connect app for the iPad you can use to disconnect the pen if needed, and even help you find it if you’ve misplaced it. But if you’re imagining the sensitivity and precision control of a dedicated graphics tablet, the Pogo Connect might feel more like a regular (and pricey) iPad stylus.

Your go-to pressure-sensitive stylus if you want a brushlike or markerlike feel

from PC Magazine

With the Jot Touch and Pogo Connect both well-built and working as expected, the choice between the two really comes down to compatibility and which feel you prefer. The Jot Touch supports the second-generation iPad and more apps; it's also better for precise work. The Pogo Connect has a more ele...More

With the Jot Touch and Pogo Connect both well-built and working as expected, the choice between the two really comes down to compatibility and which feel you prefer. The Jot Touch supports the second-generation iPad and more apps; it's also better for precise work. The Pogo Connect has a more elegant, organic feel with a better drag against the screen and no proprietary charger to lose. Both can help take your iPad artistry to the next level, and both are worth of our Editors' Choice.

TenOne Design has a winner on their hands with the Pogo Connect. Not only is the stylus $20 less expensive than its nearest competitor, but it also provides better connectivity through Bluetooth 4, tighter control of pressure sensitivity, and extended features such as the color LED matching your "paint" color. Anyone who is doing art on the iPad needs to drop whatever stylus they're currently using and buy a Pogo Connect -- it's that good.
