I recently was given a stylus and decided to try it out! I used RealVNC (https://www.realvnc.com) to mirror my Laptop to my IPad so that I could use the stylus. I need to admit that I am still faster with a mouse, and I did still use it a lot! Though I am not an expert, I think the pressure sensitivity was working... but I am not sure! The stylus is definitely not a replacement to a mouse - but it does have some uses.
The elf - or whatever you want to call it - was a bit random but you can find him on Gumroad here: https://gumroad.com/l/elfhead
