I just bought a note 12.2 but I want a stylus pen with eraser functionality so that I can avoid manually toggling the eraser. I know that it works on Samsung apps, sketchbook and other big name software. However, Amazon's question and answer does not make it very clear if it works on smaller 3rd party apps like Lecture Notes.

Can someone test their stylus eraser and see if it works on Lecture Notes (free trial)?

Here is the stylus:

Here is the specific app:

Yes, it does work on Lecture notes (full version). In settings you can enable button actions.
I don't have your stylus, but I tried with two different pens and both work very well (Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet Pen 4X80F22107 and Wacom Bamboo Smart CS-310)

Thanks. I think the programmer needs to program it with the API and the feature is not system wide. I'm very happy about this.

btw: the eraser on the top of the pen will not work (when you flip the pen), at least not with my Lenovo pen

So do you erase in lecture notes by clicking the stylus button on the side?

Such a shame that one note is so crap on Android.

I can confirm this. These pens work excellently with squid (Papyrus). If you additionally buy so-called premium features, you can also use a "true eraser" by pressing the pen button.
And btw: the Lenovo pen is much more pressure sensitive than the Wacom Bamboo.

There are no reviews on the Lenova pen, so I didn't buy it.

You do realize pressure sensitivity is determined by the digitizer in the tablet, not the pen...

The NotePro (All versions) have a sensitivity of 1024 levels. The only part of the pens that matter in terms of sensitivity is what they support. (A pen that supports, say, 500 levels, will never offer 1024.)

All Wacom pens support at least 1024 levels.
The Lenovo pen also supports 1024 levels.
Both pens have the exact same sensitivity level on this device.

Obviously the Wacom pen is designed specifically for Note devices as both the pen and the sensors are made by Wacom, whereas the Lenovo is not. I can't say if that affects usability, as I haven't tried the Lenovo pen.

Mind you, I have the regular and carbon versions of the Bamboo Stylus Feel for Note. (There are two versions of both the regular and the Carbon Bamboo Feel, (For Note and for Microsoft) and a lot of people bought the wrong one.)
I've been a Wacom (Intuos and Cintiq) user for years, So yea, I'm a bit biased. I stuck with the brand I know. (Wacom is the professional brand for digital artists, from amateurs to Hollywood).
