    Absolutely , use it for input instead of your finger . For all day data entry
    it helps with "gorilla arm syndrome " . Especially if a stand is used.
    Of course only with an iPad not with the IDE on the Mac.

    There is no direct support for Apple Pencil but you can handle it with the Gesture classes and events: http://docs.creolabs.com/tutorials/gesture-recognizer.html

    I have seen. But I need to get the signature of user in a shape done with the pencil. Is it possible ? have you a sample that does this ?

    quick and dirty - camera/camera roll/sqlite
    especially if this signature is repeated

    @Valdemar I see. We need to expose the Graphics class, expect it in the next beta.

    @marco could you give us a good link to the sample code ?
    Maybe something wrong to me, cause the OvalShapes don't respond for me. Maybe bug, maybe not :)

    @Valdemar my fault, I forgot to add a step to the tutorial.
    Make sure to check the "User Interaction" flag (and to uncheck the Multiple Touch option) for each OvalShape, like in the attached screenshot.
