    Has anyone tried writing on it with a stylus? Like with evernote?

    I am kind of hoping these android tablets in general can do hand writing of notes. I don't see why they would not be able to.

    I could not find an option in ever note to use a stylus. Also I could not find a decent note taking app that would utilize my stylus. So I'm going to try and make one. We'll see how it pans out.

    Are there any apps that will let you take notes with a stylus? I've found that there are capacatative touch styluses (stylii?), but I've never tried one- are they just not accurate enough? I'd love to be able to just use it as a notepad to jot down notes instead of having to type.

    Does anyone have an idea of a good stylus to use?

    I do not think multitouch is conducive to handwriting.

    That's what I;m afraid of. I bought one of Amazon that had good reviews, figure I'll return it if it's not useful. I'll report back whether it's worth doing or not.

    Try DrawFree. Seems OK, it's new, basic. Honeycomb optimized though.

    Edit: Sorry, I see now you wanted app that works with a stylus. This does not.

    Yup got mine through prime too. :D I also admit... that I got one with slightly less good reviews because it was hot pink to match the hot pink gel cover I ordered. :eek:

    It does lag on the paid. I got for free as they are the creators of Autocad and Inventor which I use for my work on PC.

    I have the Inventor Pro Series. I emailed and my name was put on a list. I purchased and then it was reimbursed.

    Got my stylus. The app isn't bad, but yeah, it is laggy enough to be kind of annoying, and you can't rest your hand on the screen, making it hard to take notes. Very cool for drawing though!

    The stylus was cheap, and worth having I think, at least for drawing and things like that. There's a whiteboard app too- not scaled for tablet yet, but I saw a note saying they have a collaborate version, which seems pretty cool.

    does seem a little strange to me that there's no real good note taking app. Back in the early PDA days (my dad's a tech geek too, I got his hand me downs, I had a Newton and early model Palms and such) it was one of the big features!

    I am looking for a note taking app that I can use a stylus with but can convert the notes I write into a text or word format. Can anyone help?
