One of the things I love about my husband is that he is extremely supportive of my goals and my work. He demonstrated this in a really cool way, last month, when he helped me invest in a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 so that I can talk to you guys when I’m out and about at trade shows, conventions, and other venues where dragging along a laptop (especially my laptop, which just gave me the blue screen of death last week, ugh) would be difficult if not impossible.

It took me a couple of weeks to get used to typing and navigating on my tablet using my fingers, and I still get frustrated when I bump the wrong thing, or have to make the screen bigger in order to click a link. I considered getting a stylus when we purchased the tablet, but we passed because we didn’t need one. I regret that decision, because I’m constantly fighting to hit the right thing on the screen.
So I was really excited when I was asked to write about the new Nomad Mini 2! It’s a double-ended stylus that has a soft rubber nub on one end for basic writing and navigation, and a retractable paintbrush on the other end for – you guessed it – painting on the numerous art apps available on the various app stores. I downloaded one from Google Playstore just the other day, that I’ve been having a lot of fun with. Check it out…
Isn’t that pretty?? And I did that with just my fingertip. I can’t wait to try it out with a paintbrush and stylus!
The Nomad Mini 2
is a first-of-its-kind paintbrush stylus, and I’m super excited to get to review one when it arrives (watch for that post after the New Year). The rubber nub on the stylus end is replaceable, which is good news in general, but especially for moms like me who have toddlers that like to bite soft rubber things off (I’ve lost countless erasers to the toothing kiddlet). You can protect your gadgets all you want, but having ones that you can easily fix if needed is never a bad idea; toddlers are relentless!
You can learn more about Nomad products and see their full range of styluses on their website, and you can connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube. The Nomad Mini 2 is available online for $35 as of this posting. Be sure to check out their recommendations for great painting apps!
