I have been searching for the best stylus! I have tried them all, so far the "hard candy" has been the best. I work in an office where I have to take numerous notes. I use a program called noteshelf which allows me to have multiple notebooks on the go as well as a daytimer. The problem with the hard candy version is the lid does not sit on the other end of the pen, so I tend to lose them. I have never understood why the make stylus's smaller then an actual pen.... If it was the same size as a pen it would make my life easier. So good luck with your work, I look forward to see what you come up with.
