Hi,

I saw info on the Photoshop for iPad FAQ that said it is only compatible with the Apple Pencil, but I have an iPad Air 2 and so I'm wondering if anyone has had success using any non-Apple styluses with photoshop and could offer recommendations, please. I'm mostly coloring my scanned line drawings and also doing some line drawing from scratch. An suggestions on stylus brands that you've had success with on an iPad Air 2 would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! 🙂

Photoshop will run on the iPad Air 2. As far as support for capacitive styluses, it will likely act the same way as painting with your finger only utilizing the stylus.

I have the same problem.  My computer crashed so I'm trying to use Photoshop on my Ipad Air 2 until I get a new one.  But the Apple Pencil won't work on my Ipad.  Is Photoshop on Ipad only for newer Ipads?  Anyway, anybody who knows what pencil to use would be much appreciated.  Also, does anybody know how to get in touch with Adobe directly for a question like this?
