agree brushes are superior to rubber tip styli, but only for drawing.

without a precision tip its hard to move past the sketch stage with the iPad, 

its hard to make professional apps that allow for leaner use of screen real estate and are allow for pixel accuracy.



iPad Pro?

the only truth is in observation.

To create a stylus for a multitouch-only screen, you have to emulate a finger.

I'll say it once again: Apple really blew it by not offering an optional Bluetooth fine-tip stylus with the iPad.

Really blew it.

I'm studying Mandarin, and I have an app that will let you draw a character which it then recognizes (very well), and gives a list of meanings.  It's difficult to draw the characters with my finger, so I bought a stylus.  The brand is Rocketfish, and the business end is very wide -- maybe about half the diameter of my finger, so it doesn't improve things much.  The main problem is that when I'm trying to make a line that joins another line -- with the wide tip on the stylus, I can't see the exact location of the first line.

So my question is -- do all styluses for phones have these wide tips?  If not, I would like recommendations for one which has a narrower tip. Thanks.
