According to Amazon's reviews, BoxWave was the stylus to get, but I decided to take a chance on this one.

I needed a full-length stylus, one that feels like an actual pen - not a short, stubby marker like most capacitive stylii on the market... and this seemed to be the only thing that fit the bill. I've been using it for a couple days now and these are my observations:

1. It's a lot more "squishy" than I'd like. The tip is made out of a small piece of ballooned rubber (exactly the same as the BoxWave), which I wouldn't mind so much except that you have to "push" on the stylus a but to get it to register. For apps like Sketchbook and Inspire Pro, this works great and is FAR superior to using big sausage fingers... But in Penultimate, it's a battle to write legible notes as it behaves more like a giant felt marker than a pen. Penultimate may deserve part of the blame, however, as creating pencil-sketches in Sketchbook Pro is almost natural... and far, far, FAR superior to fingers in every way. Nevertheless, being a Wacom guy has me spoiled, and I wish someone could come up with a more "firm" feeling stylus.

2. It feels very good in the hand. It's not as pleasant as a Wacom stylus - but unless Wacom starts making capacitive stylii, this is as good as it gets. Unlike most other stylii on the market, the PenGo stylus is the same width and length as most standard pens. The tip offers a very good "glide feel" as well (try it with Infinity Blade - it's actually VERY effective). All around, using it is a very pleasant experience... other than the squishiness, that is (again, I suspect there just may not be a way around that).

For me, this was definitely a better choice than BoxWave - the familiar pen-like feel, the full length metal shaft, and the smaller, more natural tip. On the other hand, BoxWave has an audio-jack connector for keeping the stylus attached tot the tablet, whereas the PenGo merely has a standard metal pen clip.

I have learned my lesson. I held off reviewing this stylus because I purchased a similar stylus with a rubber tip and became disappointed after a short while. Consider your wind shield wipers, eventually, the rubber no longer glides and instead exhibits a lot of friction with the glass. I find that the same holds true with these styluses designed with a rubber tip at the end.

Otherwise, the size, weight, and length of the PenGo is perfect. For three weeks this stylus was a pleasure to use.

Keep in mind that I did use the PenGo everyday so your mileage may vary.

The PenGo is a good standalone stylus. I give it 4 out of 5 stars as a stylus. However, I give five stars to the Kensignton second generation stylus. I prefer the Kensington over the PenGo because the Kensington it is weighted better and feels more like a traditional ink pen. As a must-have bonus, the Kensignton second generation is both a stylus and an ink pen!

This was the first iPad stylus I bought. I am a full time university student and bought an iPad this summer to take notes with and keep my books on. I found that using my finger to write made my notes almost illegible, especially if I had to write them fast enough to keep up with a lecturing professor. So, I decided I needed a stylus and went with the PenGo based on a review of the Bamboo Stylus for iPad (CS100K) that said the Bamboo was good, but too expensive and to go with the PenGo.

I started using the PenGo in August 2011 and used it extensively on a daily basis for taking notes and doing homework. It works well with the apps I've tried it on, including Wacom's Bamboo Paper and Note Taker HD. It also worked well for general navigation through my iPad and other apps. When using my fingers to navigate, annoying smudges are often left behind, and the PenGo cuts down on that considerably. Overall I was very pleased with its performance--until the last couple of weeks.

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that it didn't seem responsive sometimes. For example, I would make a pen stroke, and my iPad would register the first half or the last half, but not the whole thing. Or, if I had just wiped all the finger smudges off of the screen and tried to write, the friction between the rubber and the glass would cause it to catch sometimes and lose its fluid stroke. It worked a bit better if I didn't wipe off my fingerprints because the oil residue reduced the friction. It still worked for the most part most of the time, however. Then last week, it started acting up even more, and as I was writing, I was noticing black flecks on my iPad screen.
