Good, easy to set up and use

So far so good!
I have been working as a professional cartoonist and illustrator for over 40 years now, and in that time I have seen an amazing number of changes to the typical work flow. From pen and paper to paper and scanner, through photoshop and illustrator, and now totally digital - astonishing rate of change.
Using an iPad Air and this stylus I have been able to replicate almost everything I want to do, which is a really good place to be.
It does make some squeaky noises when you work - which my cats find great fun!
Having the ability to pinch to zoom in and out is also a terrific bonus, especially as my eyes are not quite what they used to be. It enables you to add great details without the strain - and also reduces the amount of clean up time in software.
The free 53 paper app is OK, but it would really need to have access to layers to make it something I would use. If you just want to have fun it is fine.
I have some concerns about the rubber top wearing out, as this has been raised by other reviewers - but I haven't had any problems so far. If it does become an issue I will alter my review to reflect that, but at the moment it is a definite 5 stars from me.
I have attached an example of my work so you can judge for yourself whether the stylus might work for you.
