recommend stylus for Ipad2? For use with ipad affinity apps

Recommended Posts

Though I have both affinity apps on my mac I decided to get them for my ipad because I like the feel of a pen and pencil in hand. Of course I have a fnacy wacom which  just has so many cords as to be a torture when trying to freehand anything. Im old school I miss paper and pen.
 
And thus I saw the affinity apps for ipad and I thought oooooooooooooo No wires in the way! So popped them on the ipad and hopped over to apple hoping to find a nice stylus but alas no. Just an extremely expensive pencil, which Id drool over, except that it does not work with my 3yr old ipad 2.

enter me eagerly looking for any reccomends for a stylus to use with my ipad and affinity. Ive seen some very cheap ones on amazon but I dont fancy a tip with a disk on the end of it. I rather like to see the point of my pen or pencil but Im not sure which would be good for me and not bad for my ipad screen. any suggestions appreciated!

Thank you!

My Meko stylus has a disc on the end, but since it’s a clear disc I have no problem seeing the point of the stylus through it and I’m quite happy with my purchase. If you absolutely must have a stylus without such a disc the Adonit Pixel might fit the bill, but you would have to part with a serious amount of money for the privilege.

By the way, I hope you meant “iPad Air 2” when you referred to your “3yr old ipad 2”. The iPad Air 2 was released in late 2014; the iPad 2, released in early 2011, is not supported by the Affinity apps.
