Doceri Makes a Good Point with its new Stylus

Those who have seen the Doceri team in action at various educational conferences and events have had a glimpse into the next phase of Doceri – our intelligent stylus. You’ve seen it plugged into the headphone jack of the iPads we use in our demonstrations … you’ve asked about it … we’ve said “not yet” … and now we’re ready for the unveiling! Doceri GoodPoint is a highly accurate, ultra smooth gliding stylus with a 4.5mm tip – one of the smallest tips available in a capacitive stylus.

What’s the Point behind Doceri GoodPoint?

With its unique tip design, Doceri GoodPoint makes accurate handwritten annotations comfortable and easy. While the user’s palm rests on the glass of the iPad, Doceri GoodPoint recognizes the location of the stylus nib and rejects other touches not intended to be strokes. Special functions can be assigned to Doceri GoodPoint for use with Doceri software, including the ability to click and drag objects using the stylus when in remote desktop mode, as well as a WYSISYG setting that matches the stroke width no matter how far you are zoomed in as you write. The flexible stylus tip glides across the glass surface of the iPad with less friction.

Additionally, Doceri GoodPoint has separate write and erase nibs at each end. This combination of intelligent, customizable features make creating interactive lessons and drawings with Doceri as seamless and natural as with pen and paper.

Doceri GoodPoint will be available by the end of June July, 2011 [UPDATE: The GoodPoint stylus is expected to ship at the end of July 2011]  along with a free software upgrade for registered Doceri users (including those still in trial mode) which will offer:

  • —> improved screen update time – four times faster than the original version
  • —> one-finger click and drag action using a finger or stylus
  • —> the ability to save or email drawings as jpegs
  • —> streamlined discovery of available Doceri Desktop servers and dramatically improved stroke smoothing.

The $50 Doceri introductory price is still in effect, and the Doceri GoodPoint stylus is priced at $39.

    My wife just bought an iPad II and is giving me her iPad. Does this work with the older iPad?

      Hi Jim… yes, absolutely. Doceri and the Doceri GoodPoint stylus work with both the original iPad and the iPad2.

      So glad you are using Doceri, Lynne. The Doceri GoodPoint stylus will ship by the end of June, per our announcement above. We’ll be sure to send a shipping announcement out to everyone who has downloaded Doceri, including instructions on how to upgrade your software.

    Will this stylus work with all applications or just yours?

      Doceri GoodPoint functions as a capacitive stylus with any application. The intelligent features are designed to work specifically with Doceri software.

    You have let the ship date slip once – will you have the update and the stylus available in July? (Much later and most schools cannot rollout by Fall semester.)

      Hi Steve, we are expecting to ship the stylus next week. The “intelligent” stylus functionality requires an update to the software, and since Apple can’t give us a specific time frame for review and approval, we are not certain of the exact date. It will send you a private email shortly.

    I used the old toshiba tablet to make instructional videos and would like to continue with the iPad using the showme app. This looks far superior to what’s currently available. Looking forward to trying this out with my chem students!
