As you'll know if you're a regular reader, we're big fans of FiftyThree's iPad app Paper (opens in new tab), which helps you sketch, write and draw and generally get creative, and its associated smart stylus, Pencil (opens in new tab).

Now FiftyThree has launched a new, 'Gold' version of Pencil, which will be sold through Amazon and now selected Apple stores, from £49.99. And they're promoting it as a Valentine's Day gift for anyone who loves creativity.
