    So, I've always wanted to hand write my notes for college on my iPad but finding the right software and a stylus has been...difficult. I'm a broke college kid so I can't shell out a whole lot of money for any of this. I kinda regret getting an iPad in retrospect, I feel like maybe the surface might have been better for me. I've been barely using my iPad because it's sorta useless to me right now. Anyways I digress, any helpful ideas would be great. :)

    I just picked up a couple of cheap styluses from the Dollar Tree. I didn't expect much for a dollar but they actually work great. I use Penultimate to handwrite notes with them and it is much better than trying to use your finger.

    I know how you feel when you say your ipad feels useless for school. I used to feel that way until I found the right apps to assist me in studying and such. It's all about apps since the multi-tasking abilities of iOS still leave a lot to be desired. Hopefully iOS 9 will have some useful features such as multi window and the ability to have two apps actually running at the same time.

    I know your bloke college student but have yu thought about cheap Samsung Note 10.1 that have S Stylus? You can sell your iPad for Samsung Note 10.1?
    Anyway I bought a Wacom Bamboo Stylus Alpha Black this is my second Wacom stylus so far, the first one was lost in the public library so it replaced different model. It worked very well with my iPad Air and Bamboo app :apple:
