I’ve been rethinking Apple Pencil recently. The first thought is that it would be much more useful to me if I were better about using it. But with that out of the way, I wonder how effective tool Apple Pencil really is?

If I’m taking notes or need to do a substantial amount of writing, a keyboard is the tool of choice. But when I need to jot down a note quickly it’s handy to have an Apple Pencil.

I’m definitely not as good with the pencil as I’d like to be and if I were better with it, I’d use it more and differently, but it isn’t the life changing accessory that I can’t be without, simply because I’m more keyboard centric. It’s a very cool tool, but certainly not essential.
