    What is the best iPad stylus out there for notetakers? I've seen a lot about drawing pros and cons...but, for those of us who cannot draw a stick figure and don't need those functions...what wins?

    1) Pogo stick
    2) Boxwave
    3) Dagi
    4) Finger?
    5) Something else?

    Boxwave by far. I despised using the Pogo Stylus with a passion, it felt odd and required excessive pressure to register anything which wore our my hand very quickly.

    But I was in heaven when I got the Boxwave Stylus. The tip area is bigger which for acurate sketching is unfortunate, but that is easily canceled out by how much significantly responsive the pen is with the Ipads screen.

    Although for what ever reason Best Buy's in my New Jersey area don't carry any capacative stylus's, and the Apple Stores only sell Pogo, so you may have to buy online, but I can assure you it is worth it.

    I'm a fan of the Pogo stylus.

    haven't used any but from what I tried to gather on user reviews and youtube, griffin is the best. (or "targus" if I spelled that correctly which is the same as the griffin)
    oh, that's exactly what some vid maker said about the targus
    Thanks for the heads up.

    I have tried them all and the AluPen from Germany is the best by far!

    What about the Pen Wacom introduced for the iPad and other capacitive tablets?
