Even though they are not “laptop killers,” a lot of individuals consider
the iPad as laptop replacement. With the different kinds of applications
the iPad can support, this tablet can be a very versatile tool. It is an
incredible web browser, and a convenient tool to receive and send your
emails. The iPad also is an impressive e-book reader and also take, edit,
and share photos and videos with it. What’s most interesting to know is
that with applications like Procreate by Savage and Paper by Fifty-three,
you can also create digital artwork right on your iPad. With these apps,
you can make sketches while you’re on the go, while the inspiration is
still fresh.

You can also use these apps to write messages, or jot down any ideas
you may have. What makes iPad better than other touch screen devices
is its very responsive large screen which makes making sketches or
notes easy and convenient. While it is possible to make sketches using
your fingers, you can create better artworks by using stylus made for the
iPad. Keep in mind though that not all stylus available in the market can
be used on the iPad. When shopping for a stylus, look for ones created
for capacitive screen, not resistive ones.

A standard stylus cannot be used for capacitive sensing unless it is
tipped with some form of conductive material, like anti-static conductive
foam. There are also capacitive styluses that have fabric nibs but these
often fall short in the precision aspect. Styli made for iPad cost around
$13 to $50. The least expensive is not necessarily the best option. Still,
the most expensive model may not be the right iPad stylus for you. Each
model has their own set of features which make them better suited for
writing, for painting or line work.

There are also multipurpose styluses available nowadays but their
outputs are usually not as good as specialized ones. Generally speaking,
variants with smaller nibs, usually 6mm or lower, are better suited for
more detailed tasks. The best stylus for iPad to get is one that is precise
and ergonomic. You would want to get a stylus that has a natural
weighted feel of a real pen, with the length and diameter that suits your
needs. Consumer-submitted reviews can point you to the right direction,
but this should not replace actual testing of the product. These styluses
can be bought from the Internet or from gadget stores near you.
