    After using both of these products

    I like the Roger iWand better than the Targus:
    1. It is longer and easier to use in hand.
    2. It does not require any pressure to use--even with the Zagg screen protector.

    A little nit or two:
    1. The Targus is readily available, if you loose your iWand, it will take at least three days to replace--using US Post.
    2. Every once in awhile of heavy use, you do have to fluff up the head by stroking it on the hook side of Velcro, a towel also works.

    I was very reluctant to endorse the iWand because it seemed too good to be true. But it does live up to the hyperbole heralded in numerous postings by a remarkably rabid fan.

    Great Review Matt! Thanks! I really liked seeing the two tips up close. I especially liked the comment that the Roger iwand didn't squeak! I am going to order the Roger. I have a Pogo Sketch but really don't like it. I was going to get a Targus as that seemed to be what most people recommended. I started following that long thread about the Pogo stylus and Roger iwand, but really got no definitive answer there. Your post really helped me decide!

    Going off to order one now!

    Edited to add: I ordered the Roger iwand and a 4" one in pink, since there was no purple!

    Thanks LavenderLady

    I'm glad I could help. When you get your Roger iWand, please post your experience with it. While this is only about an accessory, all the little things one can buy for the iPad starts adding up to a lot money!

    Anyone know of a good key chain stylus?

    I want something I could hook to my keys.

    how does one write on the pad? I tried using Notes, but that was a typing feature.

    Is it a different app?

    When you first use it, it walks you through a quick tutorial on how to use it.
