I want to be able to take hand written notes on the A500. I purchased WritePad Stylus app & it seems to be a great app. I also purchased 2 different stylus (styli?)...First the Bamboo Stylus that appeared to be highly recommended based on the reviews I read. The other was these cheap ones from eBay for $5.99. Based on using both for about 30 minutes just signing my name (figured that would be a good test)...the cheap ebay stylus was just as good as the $30 Bamboo! Now I will admit the Bamboo feels better to hold (has some weight & is a bit longer like a real pen) but it's not $25 better than the cheaper one! First off, before I return the Bamboo to Best Buy, what are some usage advice for writing on the A500? Is there a better way to hole the stylus? Position on the screen (top, middle, bottom?)...speed at which to write? Also, my handwriting seems "sloppier" than with a real pen...LOL!...but my handwriting isn't all that pretty to begin with! Next, what are your recommendations for a decent stylus? I know the "pens" are supposed to be better so if you know of one of those I could try please name it. The 2 I have both have the "squishy" rubber tips...I'm thinking that a harder rubber or cloth tip might feel more "natural". I heard the Targus stylus aren't that good...But I have read the the BoxWave stylus are pretty good but do they have the squishy tips? Lastly, is there a better app than the WritePad Stylus? I also tried Handwrite Free and EverNote with Stitch... Thanks for your help everyone!
