After pairing the pencil, I took it for a test drive in procreate and was not too impressed. I doodled around for a while trying to get a feel for it and it was not up to my expectations. So I decided to try it in Notes and it was a completely different animal. Then I tried it in Adobe sketch and again it worked beautifully. So I took it back to procreate and like magic it was sharp and precise. Not sure if procreate didn't fully recognize it at first but if you are having problems with slight lag or pressure sensitivity, try a different app for a few minutes. VERY happy now! This device is really going to allow me to get back into sketching, and change the way I go about thumb-nailing in my graphic design work.
