Not terribly original but works great
Posted by: bnwhtlw from: charlottesville on
So I have tried several different styli for the ipad and so far this one if my favorite. It is actually feel better than the targus model because the rubber tip slides better across the screen. Slightly longer than the targus as well.

Pretty good, could be better...
Posted by: Briguy1313 from: Las Vegas, NV on
Okay price for this stylus that's almost identical to every other stylus I found... my only complaint and why it's not 5 stars is the tip on this and 99% of other styluses... it's too wide when pushed down & squishy... it flattens out to a wide spot circle when pressed down & you MUST press down a lot to get the screen to react to it, so it's difficult to be very pinpointing specific to something small, or when numerous buttons are small & close together. It should have a finer point tip on the other end, still soft to the touch to prevent scratches, but small enough to hit small targets... so I would prefer one smaller tip OR two tips, one like this for big areas where accuracy isn't too important, and a fine, sharper pointed tip for small accurate clicks of small/close buttons.

Good writing instrument for iPad
Posted by: from: Grayslake, IL on
I am pleased with this stylus as I use it every day. It took a little time to get used to writing with something that had a blunt tip. I haven't tried any others, but I think this is great for the $$ I spent.

Does the job
Posted by: dharr18 from: Iowa on
Purchased this for my android tablet (Viewsonic G-Tablet) and phone (HTC DInc). Works as intended. I needed something to use to annotate PDF files. I do live in Iowa, so a bonus feature is the ability to use this on my phone when I am forced to wear gloves.
The weight is appropriate, has the feel of a quality pen.
Don't expect this, nor any stylus, to be a precision device. It does the job it is intended to do.

Excellent touchscreen stylus
Posted by: wildtoons from: Racine, WI on
I gave this stylus to my mother for Christmas because she complains about using her fingers on the touchscreen on her phone. I shopped around Amazon and Best Buy reading reviews and such and this one had the best overall reviews for this price range. After getting this stylus, my mom could not stop raving about it---She LOVED it. She wants to get additional ones now. She used it on her phone, on the iPad, on an ATM and she even used it on the touchscreen machines when they went to the casinos over the holiday.
The only minor complaint she had is that she wishes it had a cap only because she doesn't want the tip to get damaged. She even wants to buy a new phone case that can hold her new stylus. So, I'd say this is a highly recommended item. :)

I think all those that put in bad reviews on this stylus don't know how to use them correctly. It works great. I just got a great deal at Best Buy on this and no more nasty fingerprints on my new tablet. I love it and I see nothing not to like about it. It is fast and accurate and I'm excited to try it in the typing area. Love it.

Works just fine...
Posted by: Seasca from: Tampa, FL on
There is not much that you can say about this stylus...they are pretty plain and simple. I picked mine up on black friday weekend when it was on sale for $4.99 + tax. What a great deal/price for this stylus.
It works just fine with the Asus Transformer Tablet that I got that same weekend. It does have a soft tip, so I am not sure how it would work for taking notes, probably not that well, so that is the only thing that I can see as a slight drawback, otherwise it is a great stylus for the money even at full retail price.
I would recommend this stylus to anyone looking for a basic stylus. The only thing I would ask Rocketfish to do to improve this product is to make the rubber tip a bit harder so that note taking would work better. Other wise go ahead and get this stylus...

overall, a great value

Inexpensive and lightweight. Overall works well. It's possible a cheaper stylus would work just as well - haven't tried one yet, but will in time.

I bought this for my husband as a gift. He uses it on his kindle as his fingers are so large. He will only give it four stars as he says nothing deserves five. I think it does a great job helping access functions on his new Kindle.
