    iPad Stylus

    My school just recently got iPads for our art program, but the art teacher doesn't know which styluses to buy. Anyone know what iPad compatible stylus is best for drawing with?

    I have one that I use with my Nexus 7, though I don't use it for drawing, these seem to be aimed particularly at Apple tablets. There is also the Bamboo Duo Stylus that gives you a choice of the squishy tip or a fine tip, but I've yet to test this for myself.

    There are probably better stylus' out there.

    Thanks, Gunz. I think I'll do a little more research into them myself.

    @Aether: We were given a government grant for the iPads because at least 75% of the students are military brats from the Air Force Base 2 miles away. Without the governments grants we get, I doubt there'd even be a school lol
    @Sylux: Haha, actually I'm still just a lowly highschooler

    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    Look in YouTube there is a tutorial video on how to make your own fine tip stylus for cheap. And I would recommend the app Procreate because it has a layers function for drawing on the iPad but it is expensive.

    Sketchbook Pro also has a few mobile apps that should all support layers as well.

    I use one of these - it's basically just the retail equivalent of the youtube DIY finepoint stylus Psy mentioned. It feels a bit strange at first, but I've gotten so that I don't notice the clear disc at the end when I'm using it, and I feel it's far easier to get accurate lines with it than with one of the broad rubber-tipped ones. You do need to be careful with it though, as there's far more potential to scratch the screen.
