  1. Very helpful information on OneNote for the iPad. I use them together and they’re an unbeatable combination (if you want immediate availability of notes on all OneNote platforms).
    Would be helpful to learn which are the best fine tipped styli for OneNote on iPad Air2. I’ve tried a number, but none seem to write as well as the fat rubber tips – which is not really a writing experience.
