We've covered some of the best iPad stylus on iGB. Most of these were the round, large-tipped Stylus that are used in sketching, painting, filling large swaths with colors and the likes. What if you wanted to jot down notes on the iPad?

That's where the thin-tip stylus comes in. Fine-point stylus, as they're popularly called, can also be used for sketching and coloring, but they're prominently used for writing on the iPad. A thin-point let you write just like how you'd write with a pen and paper. Soft, delicate but sturdy fine-point stylus helps you jot down stuff on the iPad.

Best Thin Tip iPad Stylus

There are a lot of pen-like stylus for the iPad. Some of them have these tiny plastic things attached to that which makes it real hard to write actually. These are not the “smartpens” or the pen-type styli that are good for note-taking. So we've avoided them and picked on those with a genuine fine-point.

Best Thin-tip iPad Stylus

#1. Adonit Jot Script iPad Stylus

Adonit Jot Script iPad Stylus

Adonit has a lot of thin-tip stylus for the iPad. Only the Script features a fine-point tip that's not covered with one of those tiny circular plastics. And Jot Script is at the forefront of being one of the finest thin tip stylus for the iPad. It works smoothly and using it feels just like using a pen. Jot Script came out as Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition: it was specially crafted for those active note-taking sessions.

The PixelPoint technology puts the tip of the stylus at about 2mm: thin enough to feel like a pen, thick enough to work seamlessly on the iPad.
Jot Script runs on an AAA battery and Bluetooth 4.0. How long the battery lasts depends on how much you use and how long each note-taking session lasts.

#2. Bamboo Stylus fineline

Bamboo Stylus Fineline for iPad

With Wacom, we're talking about a company that exclusively specializes in creating stylus and products that work with styli. The Bamboo Stylus fineline is a pen-like stylus with a fine-point for jotting down notes, fast sketches and more. You can also use it to doodle around, but it's designed to work like a fine-tip stylus. At 1.9mm, it does a good job. While it's integrated with some popular apps at the moment (with full support for palm-rejection etc.), there's still a lot of apps that are not compatible entirely. However, for most purposes, the ‘fineline' should be a great stylus to use.

#3. Livescribe 3 iPad Stylus

Livescribe 3 iPad Stylus

Livescribe 3 is a smartpen. It's not designed to be used “on” the iPad directly, but whatever you write with the Livescribe 3 (on paper) gets sent to the Livescribe+ app almost instantly. And you can convert what you wrote into text on the iPad. Text that can be sent or shared over Mail, Message, etc. through the iPad.

Livescribe 3 can also record audio when you write, and that can be helpful in many numbers of ways. As demoed in the video, you could write “address” while dictating the address and all of this gets stored. Next time, just tap on the word “address” on the note on your iPad and tap Play – the recorded address will be played back.

Arguably, Livescribe 3 is not your regular fine-point/thin-tip stylus. If you're looking for something more than just a stylus, Livescribe 3 has the stuff.

    • Palm rejection is dependent half the time on the app also. Adonit,
      Bamboo and Cregle have palm-rejection. The Livescribe 3 doesn’t need
