Just adding on to this thread as I have been trying out sketchbook pro app and a stylus my apple guy recommended, "Jot Pro". Debbie, I am sure you have tried this pen, you have tired them all:) Carbon Computing had 4 stylus's in stock and I played around with the 4. This one seemed to have the best feel but for most of the first few days of playing at home on the iPad with it, I had such problems getting the right pressure to result in line. The app program is amazing though, what a great price for such features... the world is changing so fast, such fun to try and keep up with it all. I think as a sketch pad, to take with you on holiday, trips, to a convention say or even the coffee shop, it's terrific! I still don't know enough about it, I'm wondering if the sketches from the iPad can be transferred to my iMac and then worked on, finished up, on my Cintiq??? I don't know. Anyone?
Debbie, have you tried Painter yet?
