    Yes - use a stylus especially for writing apps. The first I bought was the cheapest I could find and did not slide smoothly over the screen. Subsequent ones have cost a bit more and have worked a lot better.

    i always use a stylus, my latest one a Tecknet stylus off Amazon has fabric tip rather than the usual rubber tip, i have been using it for a few weeks now and i'm finding it really good.....it was really cheap too.

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    I should have added that the best styluses I have found are the ones with a see-through disc on the end (instead of the squidgy black dome). The reason for this is that they allow you to see the point at which you are writing/drawing. The ones in this category which I have used are the Adonit Jot and the Hex3 Jaja.
    Interestingly in the blog on the Hex3 Jaja site ( Convert Your Mechanical Pencil to A Stylus with JaJa Teflon Tips ) there is advice (which I followed) to fit one of their teflon tips in an ordinary (metal) 0.7mm propelling pencil. This is quite an economical solution as 4 tips are $20!

    I have nails so need it but if I break a nail, I have fat fingers, so it's mandatory. I usually buy a pack of 10 for $3 or $4 on Amazon. eBay has some good dels as well. They generally come from China in about 10 days. I jave a Mini and 2 so need more than a coupe around. They wear out, get lost or are borrowed permanently.

    I found 2 in a pack at the check out line at Walmart about 3.00 I think. Works good.
