iPad painting

Slightly off topic here
but I was wondering if any of you has developed a workflow for any iPad sketching yet? Is there an App that you can get a lot out of, or do you generally use a photo editor for colour adjustments and another one for painting?

Thoughts on:
- ProCreate
- Autodesk Sketchbook Pro
- 53 Paper
- Concepts
- Photoshop Touch/Ideas

Also curious about your personal experience with different Styli:
- Adonit Jot Touch 4
- 53 Pencil
- Ten1 Pogo Connect
- Wacom Creative Stylus
- Joy Factory DaVinci/Monet

I actually just bought the Wacom Creative Stylus. So far I think it's ok, and the most expensive of the bunch (but doesn't mean it's the best). I would have wished it would be more accurate like the Jot Touch, but then again one of the pro's and con's on why I got this is because I don't have to have a screen to protect the iPad while drawing. I've only had it a for a week, so I can't be clear exactly on what's the best or worse about it yet. I downloaded like 10 different apps and playing with it all myself. Curious to know what everyone else thinks too.

I also want to add Photoshop Touch to the list, which is $9.99, and features a bunch of great familiar tools you have in the desktop counterpart. Unfortunately, the Creative Stylus isn't supported for it yet, so no pressure sensitive for it. Which also means no palm rejection. In fact, some programs claim to support the Wacom stylus for the palm rejection, but I found it's still buggy and isn't as perfect as you would wish for palm rejection technology.

I don't have an iPad by myself but I was close to buying one so I read into tons of threads around the internet.
So far the Intuos Creative Stylus still seems to be the best stylus when it comes to pressure sensitivity. If you want it to be more precise, like the Adonit Jot and Jaja Styli then you can still mod it like one person over at the Procreate forums did.
JaJa offers replacement telfon disks for their pens and you can basically stick one of these sticks through the rubber tip of the creative stylus.
This way you have the fine teflon tip and still the awesome pressure sensitivty of the Creative Stylus.

In terms of apps Procreate still seems to be the best, as they just updated to the new 2.0 version with tons of new features.
You might want to check out Nikolai Lockertsen! He's an awesome artist using the iPad and Procreate.

In the end I still went with a Surface Pro 2 to have full photoshop on the go, but that's a whole different topic, haha!

Hope I could help!

Gave up sketching with the Ipad, hardback daler book and pen and pencil works out better,

stylus not fine enough and too much lag,
