    In terms of stylus pens for ipad, How does it compare???? I desperately want to write on the ipad and take notes. Even bought Penultimate but it truly SUCKS with my finger!!!!

    Any reviews? Thoughts? THanks!

    I bought pogo but it is no good for note taking or drawing which I bought for. Said that I converted it to feel like a drawing stylus like a Wacom one that I use over the years. I will post tomorrow on how to and pics. Check this forum tomorrow. Got to board the plane now.

    There is also another stylus advertised on this site by Mobi for $20, has any one tried this one? I need to order one that actually works.

    Thanks!

    I use it for both sketching and writing. I'm a professional designer and well aquainted with wacom tablets, however, i prefer using the ipad as it's direct contact then looking at the screen while drawing.

    As with anything, it takes practice. Use it consistently for a week or so and you should be fine.

    Here's a drawing i sketched, inked and colored on my ipad.

    Well, to start I am not a professional designer but I do like to sketch. Here is a picture of a converted Pogo after taking apart three ball point pens next to the Wacom stylus I am using over the years. The feel is not exactly the same put very close if I may say. I still believe the Pogo is made for the iPhone tapping and if you have medium or big hands you are out of luck. Anyway, below is a picture of my Pogo next to the Wacom stylus (the cent under is for giving the sense of comparison size wise), and the next is done on iPad using my Pogo stylus.

    nice work. what app are you using? after trying all the major ones...brushes, art studio, etc. I've found sketchbook pro the best for my needs along with adobe ideas.

    Right on!!. Thanks for the comments. I did not comment on yours since you being a professional designer you always not only get praise about your work but you make your living too. In any case, great work!

    There's a YOUTUBE video showing a stylus using the app, PaperDesk that is great. I have three of their styluses but the Roger iWand is super for art work as they show in this clip. Hope this helps. Here's the link.

    Not bad at all. Very good in fact. Would have been better though if you'd used one the the STYLUS-R-Us styluses lire the roger iWand. Their sire is at beststylus.com

    We're not sure what your point here is Numblock. That the PoGo Sketch works? Because if that's what it is, you need to Google POGO STYLUS COMPLAINTS and see how many millions hate the PoGo. I too bought both of theirs in the beginning and then others, and now the Stylus-R-Us ones and omg what a difference in Stylus-R-Us. Sure you can do what you did. But try that with the Roger iWand like one of the ones like I have, and you will see what a huge difference they are. There is truly no prerssure required. They glide across the screen. PoGo hasn't got a chance against a Stylus-R-Us stylus. I notice you don't mention having one. Trust me when I tell you, if you want to draw with ease, try their Roger iWand and you will thank me forever. Again I'll say, I wish someone had told me on Stylus-R-Us before I bought all the other pieces or junk. Oh and the girls mouth is way too small. If you'd use the Roger iWand, she'd have lips.

    Cindy, RU

    Trying to get yourself banned as a spammer? I appreciate gorilla marketing and all that entails but your over the top endorsement of Stylus R Us products by calling other products crap and then critiquing other posters art work is a bit too much.

    It almost sounds like Stylus R Us products are too good to be true.

    I can't believe you didn't notice in big black letters right above numblock's artwork he writes: "written with my pogo sketch."

    BTW, this entire note was typed with the aid of my US$18.00 Best Buy Targus stylus.

    Wait, what if the model has small lips? Does the Roger iWand do collagen injections as well?

    Dude?

    The question of the post if anyone has written with their Pogo Sketch. I thought my reply was pretty clever if I may say so myself.

    Post your artwork then criticize. :D

    Cindy's first post on this forum was the same spam marketing post as seen on over a dozen ipad/iphone forums, and her remaining 15 posts have all been solely dedicated to fervently promote Stylus-R-Us's products.

    Boys....boys...boys...calm down. My golly you get so upset over so very little. Regarding your line of talking about spamming....ahhh...I was under the impression these comments were regarding styluses. I must have made a mistake. Then I thought I read where everyone else boasted about their favorite stylus; how much it was; where they got it, etc, so I thought, you know, I could do the same. My mistake. I guess I really didn't see any of that....did I? Yet when I do likewise, I'm accused of spamming. Seems a little unfair to me but I could care less.

    As far as me working for that company, I live very far away from Florida where I believe I read in their contact section it is. Meaning, I have no connection to them at all, other than having four of their products and loving everyone of them and like all of you charmers, making that fact known. Something I was under the impression these sites were for.

    Regarding your fabulous typing job you marvel over, no one is saying other styluses don't work. They all work. It's just, I, for one (million) don't care for having to apply ANY pressure on the glass, and don't even think of telling me PoGo isn't all about downward pressure. They are and because they are (like all of the others except STYLUS-R-US) hey? You can have-em!

    Regarding you're redundant revealing that my kind of post is here and there. Gee, yathink that’s because there are others, more intelligent than you, who has their stylus also and loves them. And your line of...Stylus-R-Us seems almost too good to be true. Dude, seriously. You must be blind. You have to be. Sit your lard ass down and watch all of their videos AGAIN, even though you'll say you already did. I said, AGAIN. Watch how there is no pressure. Watch how they simply dab here and dab there to open stuff. 99% of all PoGo videos, the demonstrator is doing nothing but DRAGGING the tip over the screen to show how it contacts. What a friggen SCAM that is!!! Anything will do that. Anything! Check out their video, I think the one on painting, where the guy dabs the stylus on the screen very lightly and makes red dots, clearly exhibiting no pressure. And again, I have four of them and that is exactly how they work. So you can counter with anything you want, but it's all just to argue. You have no stylus r us styluses, therefore you have no idea what you are talking about.
