TwoSeven: Just out of interest, what apps do people use their Apple pencils with ?

I personally just use mine with OneNote. It's so easy to just jot down notes in meetings, then when I get back to the office the notes are waiting for me on my Mac & iPhone.

Also great for quick sketching too, though I haven't found an easy app for that apart from the iOS Notes app which is a bit basic.

This what I use mine with, but it [the pencil] always needs charging when I go to use it as there appears to be no off switch. I am looking to get a different brand, likely a Wacom or Adonit one, that can be turned off and has some buttons.

In the meantime, I often use my surface pro with OneNote instead.

I use mine with pretty much everything.  I use it to navigate the iPad when I'm at work and in a meeting, I use it for notes in the iOS Notes app (which is great these days).  I use it for markup in MS Office apps, and on PDFs etc.  


It's great for my fingerprint OCD :)
