So here is a list of some of the best stylus pen for the iPad which you can use to scribble notes, use as a brush for drawings and others.

There’s a number of apps that support it like Paper by FiftyThree and SketchBook Pro.

  1. I think the TruGlide stylus by LYNKtec is definitely one to add to the list! After trying several styluses that just didn’t really cut it, I was happy to come across the TruGlide. It has it’s own unique features that no other stylus has, and really just works the best all around!
