    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.

    i too am finding, even with a hand rest area, it's a pain in the butt.

    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!
