Many people dream of the fusion of paper and digital and, for many years, we tried to make the iPad work for this. Rubbery styli, wide parallax error and low-resolution digitizers were the enemy of anything particularly good happening, despite the best efforts of many stylus makers and app developers.

With the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, however, everything has changed. The Apple Pencil is really the only stylus worth mentioning in the context of iPad note taking. Nothing else comes close.
