    I bought griffin stylus to use on iPhone4, i have large fingers,

    tbh I found it a bit like using the erasure end on a pencil, sort of soggy.

    Depends on what sort if drawings your doing, might be fine for art and budding banksy's but for strict line technical drawings I don't think they will work, cheap enough to buy and try one though ;).

    If you're willing to invest $15, try the "artist" model from iFaraday. Works very well with virtually no drag.

    That is the only way I IPad daily. I use a Griffin stylus daily. No finger prints on my screen.
    Stylus on IP just does not work well.

    I love my pogo and AluPen for doodling on the iPad and it keeps it clean.

    I too use the griffin stylus for handwriting notes but for typing I just use my fingers, i'm not really fussed about the fingerprints, I use a microfibre cloth if they get too much lol

    Sure, I recommend using a stylus, especially for the handwritten notetaking apps. I use Noteshelf (that just got an awesome update!) and a stylus sure makes it easier to write than my finger.

    I've just discovered the Kensington Virtuoso (which you can get either with a pen at the other end of the rubber tip or as a pure stylus).

    It's very much like the Boxwave/Targus models except it's slightly over 5" long (and heavier). Much more comfortable for me to hold. Of course, and as always, YMMV.
