    It would help if you had some paper for kindling.

    So to those of you who handwrite notes on iPad: Did your writing start off looking like a stroke patient's and get better with practice? Was it just practice, or did some great stylus do the trick? I'm at the stroke patient stage.

    I'm with you so I'm looking to get a stylus.......I can type notes quite quickly though even using the virtual keyboard.

    The sad thing is, I already have a stylus and write like that. :p

    Maybe there's some magical stylus out there? If there is, it's clearly not the one I own.

    I just can't use a stylus at all. I don't know why, because my handwriting is reasonably tidy. The only way I can make it work for me is to print! Self defeating really!

    LOL. Pens and paper free from my work?? NOT! I get nothing free from work. We've had every last perk but crappy coffee taken from us.
    Of course, I can get pen & paper from the dollar store all I want. But I take notes in a combination of ways with my iPad. Both typed and handwritten, and before that, typed with laptops and have since digital age for my own personal reasons as a paper trail can get messy. That's just me. It comes down to preference. Even if I hand write a note on paper and want to makes sure I have a copy, I'm might be inclined to take a picture of it anyway in my scan program to preserve-so how about that? I still use digital methods! Just like copies of paper forms. So iPad still is used for all of this. And yes, I back the information up.
