I bought an Apple Pencil in December.
I've never used it.
It may help to buy an iPad Pro too...
I can sympathize. I know I'll buy the Pro (or the rumored, new, smaller model, if it has all the Pro's capabilities), and I know I'll get the keyboard (tried it, like it, and I will definitely use it, as I use a Bluetooth keyboard with my first-gen iPad)... I'm tempted to buy the Pencil because it's cool, but since I've never been good at drawing... not sure how much I'd actually use it (little different than downloading an app to try it out, but then never using it again).
All the same, I'll probably break down and get one, because if it does turn out to be a transformative tool for me (say, for brush-style work while editing photos)...
That's just like me and my iPad, except I use my iPad every day.
I've considered buying the pencil, but I can only think of one good use for it in my work routine. About once per month, I have to sign a contract of some sort. Currently my method is to print out the contract, sign where needed, scan it back into my mac from my printer/scanner, and then email it. It seems that with PDF Expert, I would be able to cut that routine down quite a bit.
But other than this, I doubt I would use the pencil, and for $100 it doesn't seem quite worth it.
I think pencil 2 will be much better
I think the iPencil 2 Pro will be when Apple gets it right
You'd be using it for work. That makes it a tax deduction. Depending on your income that could be quite a big deduction.
Not as good as pencil 3
You could just get a regular stylus to sign your PDF. You could even sign with your finger.
lets hope any pencil upgrades work on the Pro 1
It would be interesting to know why...
You took away the joy from one Pencil-less soul who couldn't find one in stores in December.
I use mine for Draw Something.
Check out the signature feature in preview. You can take a photo of your sig with Mac's camera and paste it in the PDF.
I bought an Apple Pencil with my iPad Pro with the intention of suddenly becoming the next great digital artist. I've used it maybe 10 times.
I use my iPad Pro all the time and am delighted with it, even if the Apple case is scandalously expensive.
I bought the Pencil to try it and kept it because I thought I might use it occasionally. I haven't. But you never know. It was "only" £80.
Nah, although I have the Pencil and love it, it'll be the Pencil 5s before they get it fully right.
Now with a genuine carbon coated point, for the authenticity, feel and look of a real Pencil.
Dedicating more than 3 years of development time, a team of specialist Apple engineers invented customised carbon compounds to give the look and feel of a real pencil but with the durability and precision we at Apple demand.
The #2 Pencil will be for taking standardized tests, like the SAT.

haha, funny post OP! my confession: bought ipad pro and pencil for art, im an artist. only use it for consumption/school/reading books. it just does not do much for my art. but dang is it nice for school and wasting time on.
-opens the closet door- "There you go...you can just go back in."
That is for 9.7 iPad Pro only
There will be no Pencil 3. It will be Pencil Air Pro.
we need the Pencil Mini.
I was just reading the pencil reviews on amazon http://amzn.to/1U8vSke and it sounds kinda cool. but I don't think I could justify paying that much as I don't do much on my ipad other than watch netflix or play games... But seems really cool if I knew how to draw..
