    Hi guys, i'm a regular (well, 100-500posts) on this board, but this is an alternate account since this article has a link to my full name, and i'd like to keep my identities distinct.

    but either way, i'm a staff writer for, and I recently wrote a comparison of 7 styluses for the iPad:
    Dagi Stylus
    Pogo Sketch
    Griffin Stylus
    Boxwave Styra
    Stylus Socks

    I know for me, I had a hard time finding good comparisons of styluses, so thought this might help.

    Very good article, thanks for posting the link!

    I do have a question, if I may. Your article was mainly focused on writing with the styli. I'm looking for a stylus for my mother, who says that the iPad screen isn't very responsive to her fingers -- she thinks it's because as you get older, your skin property changes, and doesn't qutie conduct electricity the same way as younger skin. In any case, she wants a stylus to do tapping and dragging actions, like tapping buttons or selecting text, for example. She is currently using the Pogo stylus, which she likes, but the tip wears off after a while. Would you have any idea which one of the other styli might be good for someone like my motheer?

    Thank you again for a very informative article, and I'm also exploring other stuff on that site -- looks like there are some interesting articles on there! :)

    I would definitely recommend the rubber tipped styluses (Griffin/Targus/Boxwave Styluses) or the Stylus Socks stylus.

    Yea, I've heard the Boxwave is a great stylus...but I'm impatient and wanted a stylus now! So I picked up the Targus stylus at Best Buy, it works great!

    I've been using it with Penultimate.

    We just deployed iPads at work and I wanted a stylus, so I bought the targus one, works great, but I like the idea of attaching to the headphone jack like the boxwave does. Any ideas on where to buy a lanyard that does this?

    I have the Pogo Sketch stylus. It's an alright stylus, but is kind of hard to use since the foam starts to bend a certain direction.
