How are you using it for this message? Are you tapping the keys?I’m actually using my new iPad Pro 12.9 to write this message! Ive been trying to do all of my school work with it by using the pencil and notability. From that perspective using the pencil has been interesting. I’m still waiting for the moment that I go “ Where has this been all my life.” But so far I’m just getting over the learning curve of using the pencil. I want to love it!!!!!!!
If you think you’ll get good use of it beyond just drawing and money isn’t an issue. Then sure, it’s good for it.I’m thinking of getting the pencil myself. Do you think its a good way to start learning how to draw or do basic calligraphy? Or should i just stick with a real pencil and paper? I’m pretty sure there are apps that teaches you basic drawing and calligraphy using tracing or whatever.
There's a simple, albeit inelegant, fix for this. Just take one of your silicone grips and slit it down the side. Wrap it on your Pencil when using it; stow it away when charging.I wish it were thicker and heavier though. I know that's sacrilegious to say in the Apple world but it slips around in my hand too much when I have to use my fingers to interact with menus. And I can't use a nice silicone grip this time around to give it more size and weight.

would love to see current capability use cases besides drawing.Some very interesting use cases that will be possible - especially after seeing this developer demonstrate the pencil for cutting, copying and pasting text:
same with old pencilIs it a bug or is the new pencil not suppose to resize a split view, or swipe a slide-over window/app to the right? It functions with everything else but those things I cannot use my new pencil for. Or to swipe up from the bottom to go to the home screen. Those things I have to use my finger for.
Can’t remember if that was the same with the old Apple Pencil and iPad Pros.
I’ve been using Lake. Pretty solid so far, only used it for about 30 mins or so.What are the best free colouring book apps? Most I can find has limited features unless you do an in app purchase.
What feature do you use for double-tap with Procreate Kate?The Pencil remains one of my favorite pieces of Apple gear ever. I love how it snaps to charge now. And the tapping gesture is a big time saver in Procreate.
