    I really want to purchase writepad and use a stylus with it to take notes. What has been your experience using writepad with a stylus and what stylus did you use?

    I use WritePad along with a Stylus-R-Us stylus to take notes during conference calls and meetings. I have found that over time, the Writepad's handwriting recognition has improved and believe me, I have crummy handwriting. I like the fact that I can take notes during meetings and with very few corrections, have them ready to email to my employer rather than having to send him my somewhat illegible notes or take the time to type them up.

    That video review was made by a person with little experience of the app, in my opinion.

    I've grown to really like WritePad. Just remember that it's not perfect and that you've got to spend some time with it. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone who is a fast typist (not me! I can already produce text faster with WritePad than I can by typing!

    An inferior stylus. Many people here would recommend Targus/Griffin (same pen, different name), BoxWave or the Roger Iwand.

    I have the Pogo and Targus. I hugely prefer the Targus with the rubber tip. Hands down in fact. I got the Pogo almost a year ago for use with my iPhone when it was the only stylus available. It's okay, but the Targus is smoother. A lot of people seem to like the Roger Iwand too. I can't speak to that one.

    I hugely agree. I have a Griffin I got on Amazon, and I love it. Use it for everything, not just writing.

    No smudges my iPad :d

    I can't comment on WritePad, as I haven't used it, but I can vouch for the SRU Roger iWand. I also have a Pogo and once I started using the Roger iWand the pogo went back into the box and I haven't used it since! There is a leaning curve with the Roger and a little maintenance but it is a great stylus! I also have a 4" SRU stylus and the SRU Red Corvette which is a classic pen, as classy as any actual pen I have purchased from the Levenger catalog.

    Thanks for your review I may step out and pay 10 bucks for the app.

    Yep. Same thing, just re-branded. I like it very much. Quite smooth.
