    Just ordered the Wacom Bamboo Styli for my iPad 3, as I need it for iDraw.

    Am wondering whether these types of styli are safe to use on iPad screens? Do they cause any damage on any ill effect to the screen?

    Unless there are sharp points you may touch the screen with... I do have one of the cheapest, china made stylus, using it for almost a year now without screen protector with no damage (noticed).
    However, I had to use some ducttape to get the silicone-point back into position once, but now it eben looks cool ;)

    Sorry, is that to is won't damage it, or they aren't safe on the screen?

    If it is made with a rubber or fiber tip there is no way it can damage the screen of an iPad. The kind with the microfiber tips seem to work best in my experience.
