    They both use the same screen technology, i don't see why it woudln't work. But then @ 80 dollars a pop, there are a million better options out there that were designed to "work" with the ipad

    HTC flyer stylus on Ipad?

    I would also like like to know if the HTC flyer stylus would work on ipad. It looks to have a smaller and harder tip than the 5 different Ipad styluses I have. If anyone has tried it on an Ipad with writing and drawing apps and it works let us know.

    I don't think it would work, though I haven't tried, the tip of the flyer's stylus is quite small, and probably wouldn't register. I believe the stylus has a special tip that somehow tracks it's movement, and then sends that data to the flyer via bluetooth. I could be wrong about this, but I think it works something like this. The iPad is Bluetooth enabled, but the iPad's software probably won't recognize a Bluetooth stylus. Again, I don't really know how the flyer's stylus works, I'm just guessing, but if it does work how I imagine it would, maybe a jailbreak will come out to allow Bluetooth styli to work? :rolleyes:

    It doesn't. iPad, iPhone, iPod works with skin signals.
