It is hard to write something about a stylus that looks so insignificant, but don't let its initial appearance fool you.
The stylus doesn't need batteries, works straight from the box and needs no training to be able to use it. Just pick it up and use it as you would a pen to interface with your tablet or anything else that is touch screen.
I have tried this with an iPad and with an android phone and both worked as promised. It was effortless to access applications, it saved my fat fingers from mis-typing letters and saved me time by not opening the wrong apps.
The rubber tip just slides across the surface allowing the user to do whatever they want. I tried this with a couple of drawing and writing apps and it works just like a pen - what more could you want?
The only thing (and this is more to do with the way iPads work rather than a fault of the stylus) I found was that I couldn't write as I would normally write. It is natural to rest your hand on the page when writing, but with the multiple gestures of iPad, you cannot rest your hand without confusing the machine. You have to go into setting to switch off the Gestures. Either that, or get used to writing with your hand in the air. But as I say, that is not a fault with the Stylus.
All in all, it is well worth having the stylus. Now that I have one, I wouldn't be without it again.
