    Wow it's hard and finding out new things that I never did on paper or computer. Back in the days I did have a nice drawing pad. I was nice but try the iPad with a styles pen (cheep one)...

    Things I found out I need to use or tricks to help me draw :)

    1) my palm resting on the pad don't let me draw so ... Yeah I wearing a light glove so. My hand can rest on the iPad. It helps

    2) find the program I like ... That's for free... Is a nice program and it has so much tools I love it sketchbookx

    More to come working on it right now :)

    Notes Plus has a user definable 'palm rest' area that meets your first point perfectly..

    It allows free-hand drawing and typed text too. The developer is incredibly commited to the app and has some great videos on his site showing it at work.

    It stops your hand interfering with the screen when you are trying to draw/write if part of your hand rests on the screen.......or it allows you to do Michael Jackson impressions!

    There are quite a few of these apps now with palm rest built in, I've got a few but without opening them all and trying I can't remember which have them and which don't.......it's Sunday and I'm just too lazy today!

    My artistic talents are pretty poor so a boxing glove works fine for me!

    Missed this place too, I threw a hissy fit, took my ball and kicked it around the Internet for a while......eventually I kicked it too hard and it went right over a firewall and the owners won't give it back! So here I am back in the land of iPad heaven and very glad I am too to be back!

    I'm always amazed by the detail some people can get into an ipad drawing.I don't know why but I just can't get drawings on ipad to look anything like I would be able to on paper.
