I bought two of these things, two to use tapping on the keyboard and just the one to do some scrolling. They are very comfortable to use and whilst they dont have grips they are very easy to handle, you can always put rubber strips on if need be, they hold nicely in my fingers and rarely slip about. They are hollow and make a great instrument when your bored. They dont dent easily and teeth marks are nearly impossible to make. Youre more likely to break your teeth than break the stylus. they also dont taste very nice in case anyone is wondering. No problems with bits falling apart, everything is attatched nicely and they feel solid.
The rubber tips provide a small amount of grip but typing on keyboard really fast leaves an excessive number of typo's, so watch what you are typing, or proof read soon after. Moving them about on web pages is very simple to do and requires little pressure on the tip to get it to register. No problems with glitches on the touch screen where it thinks its registering somewhere else, they are relatively accurate and never miss a key when typing.
The rubber tips are not that thick and can be depressed when you press them hard enough. They are just full of air and are not solid in the slightest. Whatever you do, dont pick the rubber tips or fiddle with them, they will break. I gently grasped one of mine and it has now split. Still useable but split. They remain fairly accurate and easy to use when they do break so a plus there. I cant nock a star off for durability because that was entirely my fault. After 5 months of good use the other one is intact so actually a star gained i think.
The little clip at the side bends out by about half a centimeter and i wouldn't bend it even further because it will most likely break off completely.these have been great additions to my iPad accesories, they stop me getting on RSI from tapping on what is basically a block of glass and durability wise, if you dont suddenly get curious and rip the tips off like i did, they will last you quite a while.
I don't have an ipad yet but i have my fingers crossed for my upcoming birthday, dropped loads of hints so i am sure to get one. My ipod touch is my best friend , i don't have any big issues with my ipod apart from the touch screen. I find typing on the touch screen a nightmare, even putting in my password i manage to hit the wrong letters i really don't like it, its not as if my fingers are big or to fat just clumsy maybe.
I had to look long and hard to find a stylus pen that would actually work with the ipod touch as many sellers have advertised that their stylus works on the ipod touch and after i bought and tried them they don't very frustrating.
I bought the targus stylus from amazon for £10 with free delivery. Amazon claim they are for use with ipads so again i took a chance and glad i did because the pen works and was exactly what i had hoped for.
Tagus stylus comes packaged in a clear pen box with no instructions but has the cardboard inlay saying the targus brand and a quick run over of what the stylus can be used on this is ipads, ipods, galaxy tab and smart phones.
The pen is made from plastic and is lightweight to hold. It looks very much like a writing pen with a lid on it , much to my surprise the lid does not come off its just for show basically to make it look like a pen. It is black in colour with sliver trim on the top of the pen, the fake lid even has a clip for securing it on to a shirt pocket.
The pen has a small rubber ball on the bottom of it this part is what you use to touch the ipod screen. It is easy to use and hold and i can navigate it all over my ipod without it scratching my ipod screen.
I found using the pen is very comfortable even after 30 minutes.
Tapping numbers and letters is a whole lot easier thanks the the tagus stylus. I also have a drawing app on my ipod and using the pen works wonders with the app too.
The tagus stylus pen is slightly smaller in height compared to a normal writing pen around 10cm.
I feel the pen is a little over priced for a plastic hollow pen with a rubber ball on the end of it however does what is meant to and that's all that matters.
I recommend the targus stylus pen.
