    Got a question about the new Ipad and a Pencil.

    I would love to read books, articles or magazines and be able to highlight- is it possible?

    Are there any apps that will turn a handwriting into a digital writing?

    My mane desire is to engage with the content I read, highlight, take notes and share elements ot it.

    Books can be highlighted in both the Kindle and the iBooks app (plus many other ereading apps I'm sure). Notes in both of these require using the keyboard, but you could use one of the handwriting to text keyboards if you wished. Magazines and articles will be trickier. Some magazines might let you highlight, others not. If you have the magazines as PDF then most PDF applications (including iBooks) will let you highlight and annotate. I'm sure there are apps out there that will let you highlight and annotate articles, but without knowing your definition of articles (on news blogs? Scientific journals?) and the format it's hard to say. Pocket does not allow highlighting or notes I can tell you though.

    In my university life I love using stylus for note taking.
    I got a apple pencil now but I've already working and graduated. Maybe I will use that for note app or return it. Not sure.

    Procreate is amazing for natural media art and you can create massive documents. Adobe really needs to bring a decent version of Photoshop to iOS instead of the toy apps they currently have.

    Myscript Stylus for handwriting recognition. Works well.
