    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.

    Have a griffin stylus and love working with it. I was kind of slow in the beginning but now I am much faster with the stylus.
    Why not try it.

    Although I do like the griffin, my 1 gripe is the same, the tip is just to large. Don't get me wrong, I understand why and they cannot be very much smaller but looking at how much pressure is needed to write with them i'm sure the can be made smaller without loss of functionality!
