    Is it good for both drawing/sketching and taking down notes?

    I use the Pogo for drawing, taking notes and annotating PDF files in GoodReader. The size if the thing is too tiny in my hands, and the mushy tip bugs me. I was thinking of giving the Griffin or Alupen a shot.

    Have to agree, I've had mine for awhile and it's great to avoid finger smudging.

    Well, I do not draw on my iPad, so I can't answer that for ya. But it is great for writing and casual use. Hope this helps.

    I have the pogo stylus and the JustMobile stylus. Both work good for me but I prefer the JustMobile. Pogo stylus is to thin for me.
