    Theyre pretty much needed if you want to use sketchbook pro. :)

    Ordered a Griffin stylus, but estimated delivery is mid Mai. Not sure what the issue is, but if it really takes that long, I may cancel the order and just live without one.

    I've been looking at the Alupen., seems like it would be ideal for brushes and notebook apps

    I recently picked up a box wave stylus from amazon. I like it a lot better than my old pogo sketch.

    Perhaps one could build a magnetic pen, to attach it to the SmartCover hinge?

    I use one for note taking app. It's invaluable because my professors are leary of iPad and laptops now because most people were on social networking sites and not taking notes. So beig able to take and save notes by hand on iPad is great.

    I use a mini stylus. The end had an attachment that fits in the headphone jack so it's always there. I also have a stand alone pen-sized one.

    I do carry one of my styluses all the time for handwriting notes mostly. i have a gen 1 and use an Apple case so just use the clip on the stylus and attach to the fold on the case. Works fine.

    I have 2 Stylus-R-Us stylus, one for home and one for office.

    I got these after trying Pogo and Targus and found these to be the best

    My Cocoon sling bag has a windowed pocket on the front for a cell phone, which is perfect for holding my stylus.

    What notebook apps can you use a stylus on, I take it you can actually write your notes not type them?

    What are your using for sketchbook pro, as noted in your opening post?

    A stylus has a rounded tip made of a soft material.

    I bought a cheap stylus off eBay, received it today. It's supposed to work with ipad but it dosen't work. I have the Zagg screen protector and I'm thinking that might keep it from working? I tried a paper clip and that doesn't work either. Could the screen protector be keeping the ipad2 from picking up the stylus? It works great, very sensitive, when I use my fingers.

    I use a Pogo Sketch stylus. Not as much as I did in the beginning, I am learning where to put my finger. It has a clip, and it fits on one of the corner hold downs on the Sena case. I also have a screen protector, and it works fine through it on the first gen iPad.

    I use either a Pogo and Targus stylus with Notetaker HD, Noteshelf, Goodreader, Tinker Photo and Smart Note. I've been using one for almost a year without any problem. I don't have any protective film on my screen but keep it in an Apple case when not using it and while stuck in a bwg to transport.
