Looking for a stylus
« on: September 23, 2013, 12:28:47 PM »
I know nothing about what makes a good stylus. All I know that my new Nexus case has a place for a stylus, and I want to get one now.

Any recommendations for a good, accurate and cheap stylus (which ships to Canada)? I was considering this one... happens to be pretty cheap.

You will need to look for a "captive stylus", which basically works as an extension of your finger. The more expensive N-Trig or Wacom digitizer pens will not work.

I'd avoid paying for anything expensive claiming to to work on a capacitive screen, from my experience they are a waste of money.
Pick up a cheap rubber tipped one off eBay because anything more that a few dollars/pounds really isn't worth it.

Great, thanks! I picked up a capacitive one off of ebay for 99 cents. Should be interesting using a stylus.
