    I have this one and like it just fine. A little thick for writing, but would be afraid finer ones might wear out too soon. Here's the link.

    [FONT=&quot]As with the iphone and iPod Touch, the iPad's screen requires capacitive input, which is why a traditional plastic stylus won't work. The pogo pens have special tips that mimic the touch of a finger, but with considerably less surface area.[/FONT]

    I have the boxwave and I like it. A little thick but i'm used to it already. Anyone get the bamboo one yet? That looks cool.

    I just ordered a couple of the stylus r us styli and I'm really hoping to like them, as they're frickin' expensive! But, like a prev. poster said, they're supposed to take a VERY light touch, so you don't have to press on the screen. I purchased telescoping styli because I've heard that it's much better to write on the iPad with a longer stylus, but I didn't want to carry a huge stick-like think around with me to class and risk it breaking or something....

    I've heard the Wacom ones are very nice, a little on the short side but they feel like a real pen. I was going to buy it before I came across the stylus r us styli. Most everyone I've talked to has said to go with either the stylus r us, or a good sized RUBBER tipped stylus, as the sponge-like ones (like the Pogo) are difficult to write with and the spongey foam becomes distorted easily. Just what I've heard!

    Anyone found a good app for taking notes using a stylus?

    The ones I have tried are Jotter, epinotehd and jot it down.

    The Pogo Stylus is good for drawing but as I cannot draw I have given it to my wife and I have a cheap rubber tipped one which works well for writing but I don't like the apps I have tried.

    For notes I use Penultimate and Noteshelf. love both of them and the box wave stylus works great. The other thing I like about the boxwave stylus is that the end inserts into the earplug hole so you can easily take it with you and not lose it.

    I made a pen myself already two years ago. It was absolute free:

    Notetaker HD with a Targus stylus works great for light note taking and PDF annotations.
