Do you use a stylus to write on your iPad?

I need one that writes clearly, so probably a fine point.

Which do you use? I've read that the Adonit ones are best but can't find them in Canada.

Thanks!

I think styluses are incompatible with ipads, at least as far as I know.

All stilus work with the iPad. But the most comfortable for typing is a Bluetooth keyboard, although my wife does not like using one with her iPad because she has gotten used to the screen keyboard.

I use a stylus sometimes for my tablet. They work on all tablets. Hard to write really well on them but might be because I am a lefty.

All styluses do not work equally well on all touchscreens. I had one that worked wonderfully on my iPad. On my Android tablet - not so much.

There are so many factors that go into a good stylus, and it is not simply limited to the stylus itself. You may have to try a couple to find one what works for you. However, you may want to consider what you are going to use the stylus for: Just to tap things on the screen? To try to take handwritten notes? Or to sketch/draw? The stylus, device and app all come into play.
