    If u really want to take full advantage of the ipad pro, then there are really no alternatives, the apple pencil’s features are tailor made with the ipad pro... u may get a third party stylus, but even the good ones cant compete with the apple pencil mainly bec those features are exclusive to the apple pencil-ipad pro combo

    Anyone here who uses an Adonit Dash 3 or Pixel?

    I'm looking for a possible stylus for my iOS and Android devices...

    Hi, guys!

    Any apple pencil dupe recommendation? Will be using it mainly for work/online classes. Has anyone tried the stylus pen from Goojodoq? Feedback?

    Thank you!

    The Apple Pencil is the best; I think you shouldn't waste time and/or money on any substitute.

    What iPad are you using? If you’re using something 2018 and above I think it could work. Got a couple of Php500 styluses off Lazada for an iPad 7 and Air 3 and the kids are good with them for basic drawing and annotation stuff. Though there’s also an Adonit Note+ which they can also use.

    I have been using the Adonit for almost more than 1 year . I have been very happy with it. I limited to note taking and annotating my pdfs

    I have an apple pencil and goojodoq. For taking notes, goojodoq is a nice alternative to the apple pencil.
