Designed to write like a dry erase marker

from AppAbled
It looks good, feels good and is the most accurate stylus I have used. It’s design makes it ideal for Special Needs children or those with fine motor or carpal tunnel problems... Full review

Excellent precision with good price

from Coolsmartphone

The Cosmonaut is, by some distance, the best stylus I have used. If you can look past it’s heft, the stability it provides in the hand and it’s rubber-covered aluminium core provide a level of sensitivity and precision that other styli simply fail to live up to.

Whilst I found the design very familiar once in use for writing and drawing alike, the cylindrical nature means it’s very difficult for the styli to be kept on any desk without fear of it rolling away. It might sound like a small niggle, but having to find a location to store this stylus whilst not in us... Full review

The Gadgeteer

Really good and very fun to use

from The Gadgeteer
The Cosmonaut is an iPad stylus, pure and simple, with an emphasis on the simple part. It’s rather fat, like a crayon made for toddlers. It also has some heft, but not too heavy and is very well balanced when held. It’s comfortable to use for long periods of time, especially when using a sketching or note-taking app... Full review

Designed to be different

from Gadgetmac

The Cosmonaut and it's enormous form factor is like a raging bull inside a china shop. Using it for extensive writing, note taking and precise detailed stuff is impossible. The capacitive rubber tip, although glides across the iPad's glass screen smoothly, is very rigid and requires some force to compress and input your gestures on the touchscreen. There's very little give in the tip which requires more out of you than just gliding the stylus around like some other styli. And the sensitivity is even worse if you're using a screen protector including the Glas.t glass screen protector, requir... Full review

Apple Gazette

Probably the oddest stylus you’ve ever seen

from Apple Gazette

The Cosmonaut began as a successful Kickstarter project, and now it’s available to buy online for $25. It’s the perfect stylus for artists and handwriters, and I think it’d make a great accessory for the iPad user who’s generally averse to a stylus, as well, because it’s so unique. There’s simply no other stylus that can match the tremendous sense of mass and power that the Cosmonaut conveys — and you can’t understand that feeling until you hold it in your own hand.

I’ve tried many a stylus over the years, but I have a new fav... Full review

AppAdvice

A fine stylus experience

from AppAdvice
I absolutely love my Cosmonaut, and I recommend checking it out if you’re looking for a casual stylus. It just feels great in the hand, looks good, and is a nifty tool for the average user, ranging from young to old.The customer service at Studio Neat is also fantastic, and they seem willing to help you out whenever you need it. ..

Macgasm

The best stylus for the iPad

from Macgasm

I’ve owned and used many a stylus, including the Pogo Sketch, two styluses by Elago and one by both Belkin and Griffin; the Cosmonaut trumps them all during extensive use for university research.
While the two negative points I mentioned aren’t deal breakers, I’d love to see them addressed in some manner in the next version of this product. A different, less lint-loving rubber or silicone material would do a lot for the haptic feel and the long term looks of the pen. A one-piece construction of the core would eliminate a potential point of failure at the back of the s... Full review

Tech Advisor

Great stylus that didn’t try to replicate the feel of pen on paper

from Tech Advisor
The Cosmonaut is a novel-looking stylus, which does a precise job of mark-making on your iOS device. Ideally suited to more creative pastimes such as doodling, drawing and painting, the Cosmonaut also proves an excellent all-rounder... Full review
PC Magazine

A good choice for iPad users with carpal tunnel or mobility issues

from PC Magazine
The Cosmonaut's rubbery tip gripped the screen well, providing solid feedback, and it was especially good for clicking and dragging interface elements on the iPad.Professional artist Leontine Greenberg said she found the Cosmonaut's thickness made it a bit hard to hold and clumsy, but she typically paints with very small brushes. It might be a better pick for people with arthritis, carpal tunnel, or other disabilities, she noted. I'd add to the list older children turned off by the AppCrayon's very little-kid look...

iLounge

Comfortable to hold and to use

from iLounge
Cosmonaut’s simple design is certainly appealing, as is the cool visual accent the core provides—that core also elevates the look to something a bit more professional. The fact that the stylus writes so well is surprising, and will please many users. It’s not going to be for everyone, but we can offer a strong recommendation for Studio Neat’s stylus with a B+ rating. If you like the look, you’ll be very happy with the results... Full review
