While digital pens that enable digitally recording text as you write are not necessarily a new innovation, these devices have become popular because this is such a natural form of data input. After all, many of us might not be that good at typing and keyboards, but most of us are quite comfortable writing with a pen. A new invention however is a digital pen that is compatible with the iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, most of the existing digital pens out there are not compatible with these devices. E Fun has just introduced the new Apen A4 Wireles Digital Pen which is specifically designed to be compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iOS devices.
In fact, the Apen A4 Wireless Digital Pen also improves on what previous digital pens have lacked. That’s the ability to digitize what you are writing without needing a computer as a digital translation medium. The Apen A4 digital pen’s receiver can transfer your recorded writing directly to your iOS device. This is done through the 30-pin cable that’s included with the pen. Also, the receiver can store up to 100 pages of data if you don’t want to digitize and transfer all at one time.

The pen operates on a battery that can last up to 8 hours. It also comes with a photo sketcher feature that allows you to make annotations on computer images, and other annotations such as an e-signature on the many Microsoft Office applications and on digital pictures. Other features include sharing of photos on social media sites and sharing handwritten documents through e-mail.
This Apen A4 Wireless Digital Pen is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5, Windows XP or any newer versions, and iOS 3.0 and above. Although it is a digital pen, it works just as well on normal paper. The price is around $130 and is easily available at all national retailers.
