    I'm curious if anyone out there has found a good solution for a stylus for the iPad. I'd like to be able to use one to take notes. I can type well enough but sometimes it would be nice to write. It could also be uses for the myriad drawing apps.

    not all stylus for iPhone, Touch, iPad are made the same, try before you buy,

    IMHO this is the right one to get, slanted tip and static touch, don't use the round nor felt tip which I tried and hard to drag or have to press down which will easily worn out like an eraser,

    I use a stylus like the above pic in pure black, 650 pesos only

    I've been seeing a lot of good reviews for the Dagi stylus. The nib's shape is a little unconventional, but I guess that's what makes it work. I hope it becomes available locally, I definitely need that when using Penultimate or Note Taker HD. It's also being sold online.

    yes, the Dagi seems to be the closest thing to a precision tip for capacitive input. medyo nakakailang lang talaga siguro sa umpisa.

    Will using the dagi or pogo stylus be good--i.e. it's not going to scratch the iPad's surface?

    I'm hesitant to use stylus because my Nintendo DSi's stylus left hair-thin scratches on my handheld console's touch screen.

    Is the tip of yours soft rubber? I bought one that looks like the picture but all black. The tip does not drag smoothly across the screen and you have to press the slated tip at the perfect angle.
