OK People!

I think I have found the ultimate stylus for writing.
It is shipping to me right now so I can't wait to get a hand on it, but here it goes.

I've bought my tablet for note taking use, so finding a good stylus and app was important. I mentioned the best note taking app in my previous post, so I will tell you what I found for stylus.

Since writing on iPad and GTab is similar, I've done some research and found that most people recommended wacom bamboo stick. Indeed, it gets great reviews and whatnot. I heard it is much better than Amazon stylus or samsung stylus.

However, people want a fine point or a stylus that can write detailed. So people mention Dagi or Adonit jot pro. These some people liked, but mostly said that they did not like it because you have to write in certain angle and it was inconvenient.

What I found ultimately was iFaraday. I recommend people to visit the site, as the maker is an individual handcrafting these styli. I will post again when I have my hands on it and compare it to my other stylus which is Griffin.

I just posted this thread...along the same lines so people checking this thread might fond some use...I get the impression you're after a commercial solution this is a homemade solution ...it probably won't compare for lifespan or quality...but for free I think it's definitely worth a look.

Just got my P507 pen and they seam to work great ;)

Have'nt tried the calibration yet though but it's accurate enough for what i needed it for.

The tip seams a bit weak though, but with some care it should last awhile I hope.

How about taking notes with it?, I had a galaxy note and it was very good at taking notes. I'm trying to find a "solution or stylus" for my asus transformer, something that make me replace the paper.

I have a Griffin Stylus, it is good for people who just use pens instead of fingers for common device use. But for note taking it doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

*UPDATE* 06/05/2012 -

I brought a Jot pro from ebay around $30. Soo is better than the griffin (a lot) but it needs the screen tune up app to work better. I used the recommended app “Lecture”, is a great app. Still it doesn’t replace completely the note taking.

Strange my pen and flyer are extremely accurate.
