    My Apple Pencil just ran out of gas while I was in the middle of a mound of math manipulation and I had to go back to an old fat tip stylus while the Pencil recharges. Ugh! How on earth have I survived using those things?

    If you plug it into the iPad Pro, it only takes about a minute to get enough charge to last another hour or so. Plug it in, take a quick break, go back to work.

    I've gotten used to using Notes and the pencil to jot down numbes and info when going through the phone messages at the office. The other day I forgot the Pencil and Used my finger. Not pretty.

    The Pencil has turned into a star! It really is an awesome thing. I use mine almost exclusively for general ui navigation. My fingers are obsolete. Infact i might chop them off, they're no use any more.

    the pencil is great ... finally apple's own implementation of a stylus .I hope future updates give us different tips .One with more friction to emulate pencil on paper .

    I really wish they would have made it an OS X tablet so you could use the stylus with Photoshop & Manga Studio Pro and other full blown Pro Art apps. As much as I love ProCreate, there are still a few things it falls short in.

    The Pencil doesn't leave anything on the screen. The tip is quite soft. Also, I put a Matte Screen Protector on mine to give the Pencil a little better feel, more like paper, and that works great. No change in sensitiity or accuracy. The Pencil without the Screen Protector feels a little too slick to me but with it, it's almost perfect.

    While the tip of the Apple Pencil itself is not going to scratch the screen of your iPad Pro; if you have any dirt or grit on the screen, it can be scratched when the tip of the Apple Pencil runs across it. You'll want to keep your screen as clean as possible while using the Apple Pencil.

    Well, the same thing applies to using a finger. If anything, I have a tendency to press harder with my fingers than the Pencil so I'd probably be more likely to scratch it with my finger than with the Pencil. I fully recommend putting a Matte, slightly textured screen protector on it if you're planning on using it for drawing or writing. It both protects it and gives it a much more "natural" feel with the pencil.
