I do not want to spend an additional $39 to securely fix it. Any other way?

Secure remote is completely optional. Did you see the videos?

There are a lot of apps that support Apple pencil. Apple pencil is designed to work with any non Apple apps. Are you looking for anything particular, like drawing or so? If so, I can find a better app for you

Do I have to get the apps for Evernote & Adobe sketch ? So this pencil is a glorified, expensive stylus?

Yes, you need the apps. The pencil is just a tool that you can use with the apps. Inbuilt apps are not much of use execpt the Notes, emails etc

For advanced functions, you need to download the apps which many of them are paid apps.

If you just need this for note taking or basic tasks, then you can use the Notes app.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
