    Does anybody know of a good iPad stylus that is used for writing?? I ordered a pack of three from Amazon but they are only good to play games with. They have a rubber tip so it does not slide smoothly across the screen. I need one that will allow me to easily write legible notes on the iPad. Any suggestions would be great.

    Pogo Sketch slides easily. Big tip though. Practice needed.

    Pogo Sketch or the Dagi stylus are probably the best two options right now. both are quite different so you should do some research on them.

    i got the dagi for drawing on the ipad but for me it doesn't really compare to drawing with pen and paper. maybe that will change with some practice..

    Anybody try the iFaraday styluses? They sound quite good and really made specifically for artists and for sketching (I assume writing would be easier with them as well). I'm very curious about them.

    I saw a LOT of negative reviews of the Pogo stylus so I avoided it. The one I got has a rubber tip and I like it for most things but writing could be a bit easier. It's a little hard to tell where the tip is hitting since it's not pointy. I just love drawing with it though - would just love to have a little more control.

    Just saw the e.stylo stylus review over at youtube. Can't post the link yet.

    On the official company website it says its for artists but the reviewer says it's really nice for handwriting too. Anyone here used it?

    Well I read a really good review on it and purchased straight away, but the rubber nib is very thin and when you start to right or draw the nib squashes and the metal holder 'scratches' against the screen, no damage but I guess after it wears down there could be!

    I'm waiting for the wacom bamboo looks really nice, my recommendation is the targus/boxwave it's really nice

    BoxWave Capacitive iPad Stylus

    I just ordered the BoxWave Capacitive iPad Stylus (sorry, I'm new and not allowed to post links .. ). I've read ALOT of reviews for stylus' and this one seems to be perfect, according to other reviewers - other than the price. From what I've seen the only reason these suckers are getting 5/5 ratings is the price, which is about $15 right now (normal price is $25).

    I've seen ALOT of reviews in contrast to the Pogo Sketch, as many people are stating that the Pogo Sketch requires almost a "perpendicular" way of writing to get a good solid performance out of it - so very painful to write with if you are going to spend a lot of time writing on the ipad (notetaking, etc).

    I should be receiving mine in the mail in a few days, so I'll post back my results.

    I really like my Stylus-R-Us stylus. However, it takes a very light touch to work properly but once you've practiced a little while, it's great.
