Stylus for note taking

Does anyone know of a good iPad stylus that is really good for note taking. Something that feels like a pen and the notes turn out nice like they would on paper? Thanks.

I use a pogo sketch stylus, which is good. The problem is writing on the screen and not having your palm rest on it causing the screen to take that input as well.

Ya the Pogo is worth getting if you expect to need a stylus enough.

I bought two of these from Amazon. They were pretty cheaply priced.

Might want to wait, TenDesign said they will have something smaller than the sketch stylus by the end of the month.

I can confirm that they are in the process of working on something for the ipad to give much more "precise writing." I do not know when they will be releasing it however as they just told me to stay tuned to their website. I got the email from them today about this.

Forgot about that. I thoguht that Apple had a patent that would ignore palm/accidental input? What program are you using to take notes? I am interested in taking notes on PDF's. I know of iannotate, but the UI is jumbled n my opinion. Any others?

Thinner stylus would be good, the current ones look like they would write like a crayon.

The folsman stylus on amazon is a piece of crap. It works but the materieal it is made of is spongy and is difficult to use on iPad screen. It just does not float across the screen like one of the stryofoam tipped ones which I assume the pogo is made if, don't waste the money omen this one it sucks!
