    Hi,
    I use a Boxwave stylus. It's a good stylus but sometimes sticks/drags a bit on the screen

    A solution I've found is to dip the end in a little pot of talc. It then glides across the screen lovely!

    A little pot of what?

    Question, does the iPad recognize a stylus as it would your finger, because my wife has a app that puts the photos in black n white and u draw what part of the pic u want color and sometimes the finger may to big to get too detail and we've noticed u can't really anything but the finger

    Talcum Powder.

    A capacitive stylus works the same as your finger, but is better for drawing.

    Type 'Boxwave Stylus' in Amazon search box.

    I been using various one from 'Stylue-R-Us'. Little bit of a learning curve, but works great. I've been using their stylus since last November and will never go back.

    +1 on Stylus-R-Us. I have two and never use my finger. It glides smoothly if you apply a light touch. I use it primarily for note taking.

    I tried a stylus for a bit, but it was too small (thin and short) to be comfortable. How is the feel of the Stylus R Us one for feel?
