Are there alternatives to the Apple’s Pencil?
I’ve been considering getting myself an iPad but I can’t decide which one to get. I have fairly light use cases mainly involving taking notes (jotting down random brain fart, etc.), reading eBooks, and occassional sketching/drawing. I was originally considering one of those digital paper devices (the Sony one especially), but I feel like they’re not there yet. They’re being sold for almost the same price as the iPads with much less features (I can’t draw on them) so I thought I’d rather just get an iPad. I’m thinking of getting any of the non-Pro ones but they only support the original Pencil so far and while I think it’s ok, I’d really rather use something better… if something like that exists.
So in my mind right now, it’s either I get the more expensive Pro so I can use the Pencil 2 with it, or I get the entry level iPad (or maybe Air) with a (hopefully better) non-Apple stylus… but are there even alterntives?
