Product Description

The Acase (TM) Capacitive stylus pen works on all capacitive touch screens. This is the Latest and Newest Design in the market which is longer, skinnier, and easier to control and use. The dimensions are 5.06 in length, and the diameter of the capacitive rubber tip is no bigger than 1/2" for improved and better accuracy. The rubber tip is durable and soft which will not scratch the screen. A removable tether is included with the stylus pen, which can be attached to the iPad by plugging it in the earphone jack, to carry the stylus pen with ease. The Acase (TM) Capacitive stylus pen is perfectly sized and shaped, and is designed to feel like a pen in the hand.

Most people who purchase the iPad can start using their fingers right away to access the touch screen capabilities of the device. However, there are several reasons and advantages that you would want to use an iPad capacitive stylus pen:

* Touch screens get dirty quickly when fingers are used on them, especially children's fingers!

* Allows finer motor control, improving note-taking and sketching/drawing ability.

* Many people find it easier to use touch screen keypads and buttons using a stylus as a finger substitute.

* It doesn't cost a lot to purchase a capacitive stylus pen, and it can allow you to use the iPad in new and creative ways.

Here's what I found after trying a multitude of styluses (or is it styli?) after buying an iPad 2. I wanted to use an iPad as a sketch book and the pad like it's name...and go digital rather than filling up notebook after notebook. So the perfect stylus has to feel like a pen and work well enough on the screen to give the tactile feel of drawing or writing on paper.

I learned that styluses tips are of 2 main types - fuzzy fabric and rubber - with some additional quirky ones made of metal (O-Stylus)or the sausage stylus (sausage also works like your finger!)
--Fabric tips:
Pogo stylus- also used by Apple Geniuses - have a fabric tip that's great for typing or selecting or gaming even but not so good for writing or sketching anything more complex than a smiley face.
Sock Stylus: This is a conductive fabric sock stretched over a wooden quill, sold on etsy (can google it). This stylus was light and the fabric tip over a wooden pen helped reduce drag due to it's smooth but hard tip. In fast note taking this stylus tended to be easier on the wrist as it was less squishy than the ACase tip. However, it lacked sensitivity in some apps and I had to go over the strokes twice for them to register. Also since it's not rubber you have to hold it at a certain angle but once you do it gives you good results.
There are other fuzzy fabric styluses out there sold by small stores - like the ones by the guy who has been advertising on all Mac forums as stylusrus and posting pictures of his store in competitors' item images. They claim that they have the best yet but I haven't tried that one yet.

--Rubber tips:
The ACase in question (2nd Gen) has a rubber tip. Please check my uploaded pic for size comparison against some other styluses.

I have been waiting for a stylus like this for some time. I bought the original version - the shorter version with the thicker point - and was mostly satisfied. However, this one is so much better! The tip is thinner, so it is slightly more precise. The body is longer, so you feel more like you are holding a pen. This is important to me because I use my ipad to take notes and highlight/mark up documents for school, and this stylus is ideal for that. Very responsive, and doesn't look dumb.

I ordered four of these 2nd generation iPad sylus, one for each iPad (three)and our touch screen home computer in the house. I like the smaller tip of the 2nd generation. I'm able to do anything I need to do with my iPad while using the stylus. I read many reviews about iPad sylus and I thought I would give this one a try. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a stylus to work with your iPad.

I read all the issues about is not being heavy enough. OK so what. Not sure how heaavy people feel it needs to be but still works fine. Just the right length even for my large hands so I know it will work for just about anyone else.

I highy recommend this stylus and everyone else in the house that uses theirs is satisfied. Order it if this is what you have been looking for.

This stylus is sleek and stylish. You know this even before you open the equally stylish case that it comes in that makes it look like you've just bought yourself one of those super expensive pens, not a stylus for your Ipad or Ipod Touch. This stylus is definitely a piece of art!

I bought this for my Ipod Touch after Amazon recommended it and I had finally given up on using my chubby fingers to try to type on the touch keyboard. Unfortunately, within seconds of unwrapping it, I knew it was wrong for my Ipod Touch even for using it.

For on, it's too big for the Ipod Touch--bigger than the Ipod Touch itself, much too longer if just as sleek--and though the pen is delicate, sleek, stylish and probably (definitely) gets the job done on an Ipad, it fumbled over the Ipod Touch clumsily right from the start. I thought it didn't work until my husband noticed it, fell in love with it and right away, stole it for his Ipad. This stylus now lives permanently and gleefully with his Ipad.

The point? This stylus is AWESOME for Ipad. But CRUDDY for Ipod Touch. Your Ipod Touch would be better served with the much clunkier and less stylish:

(1) Targus Stylus for Apple iPad 16GB, 32GB, 64GB WiFi + 3G, iPad 2, iPhone, iPod, Tablet AMM01US (Black)

Despite being thicker and clunkier, I've never had problems using the Targus on my Ipod Touch though my husband has had trouble with it on his Ipad.

OR

(2) the much smaller and more discreet: Acase mini Capacitive iPad Stylus for iPhone 4/3GS/3G, iPad and iPod Touch, AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4, Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, and BlackBerry Playbook. If this was a little longer, it would be perfect but even so, it is ideal for ipod Touch and iPhones!

I looked for a long time before buying this stylus. I haven't had any other to compare it with but I've been very happy with it. I chose it because it has the most narrow tip. The 1st Gen Acase stylus got poor reviews because it wasn't responsive. This is the 2nd Gen and I haven't had problems with responsiveness. I use it all the time for drawing and taking hand written notes. I also use it when I'm reading pdf's (textbooks and research papers) and highlighting/annotating them. This stylus plus Goodreader and Penultimate make the iPad worth having.
