I purchased this stylus (Bamboo stylus) for use with my Kindle Fire and it works very well. I haven't had any problem with skipping or accuracy. The screen is cleaner after use than when using fingers. My impression is that I can type faster with the stylus than with a finger when replying to email or entering search terms. I have not attempted to type any long documents, but my experience with emails suggest to me that it will be possible if not exactly enjoyable.
