    I have been trying to research what is a good choice for a stylus for the ipad and can't find a definitive selection. Does anyone have experience with either the wacom Bamboo or Pogo Sketch Pro stylus? Any other reccomendations are appreciated, thanks.

    I don't mind using my fingers, however I've been thinking of trying a stylus just don't know if I would really use it.

    Yeah the fingers aren't bad for most things, but I would like something to be more precise. Hopefully someone will give a suggestion.

    I like the Wacom Bamboo Stylus. Don't use any of my other ones anymore...

    I heard a lot of praise for the adonit stylus. It's got a unique design, which lets you see exactly what you're drawing. But it's mostly for precise drawing and writing, if you want it to wave around fast, i heard it's not that great. I'm really thinking of getting it, cause i storyboard a lot and mostly can't figure out what the hell i scribbled there. You can check it out here: http://adonit.net/product/jot/.

    I use my stylus a lot actually - some notetaking apps etc that I use a lot, but also for just general use to give my fingers a break.

    My main stylus is from iFaraday iFaraday Store, they have a few styles but I use the iFaraday RxII. Love this stylus, it's the one that I always pull out first. Material tip, nice size and weight, don't have to apply a lot of pressure.

    My second stylus of choice is the Alupen Just Mobile Xtand - Stand for iPhone / iPod touch / MacBook they have tons of colors. This is a rubber type tip, thick in your hand and has some weight to it, just feels nice in my hand I guess.

    I also have the Aponyo click stylus Amazon.com: Aponyo Click - Fabric-tipped Stylus for Capacitive Touch-screens (iPad 2, New iPad 3, Android, HTC, Samsung) (White): Electronics which is always in my purse as a back up. My daughter prefers this one over my iFaraday so it's personal preference. Material tip which seems hollow so, to me, I feel I have to apply more pressure than my iFaraday. It's smaller and more compact.

    As for the others mentioned above, I've not tried them so this isn't a comparison to those, just what I use. Good luck on your search!
